Question I'm constantly getting sick...is something wrong with me?

Hello everyone. I'm sure there are a hundred threads like this one but there are so many to read through that I figured I would just ask my specific question and get some answers (hopefully).

Over the course of the past 6 months it seems like if I come within 10 feet of anyone who is even suffering the mildidst symptons of an illness (and by illness, I mean anything...flu, cold, congestion, coughing, ANYTHING!) I always get sick. My son comes home from daycare early due to a fever, the next day I have the full-blow stomach virus, My co-workers has the sniffles after the weekend, I spend the next 10 days battling laryngitis and a sever cold.

My question is this: am I suffering from some sort of immune system disease? Is there a way to boost my immunities? I don't want to go to the doctor of I don't have to because my insurance is terrible. Does anyone know why I am getting so sick? If there is a name for a disorder like this, I'd like to know, or if I'm one of millions like this, I'd like to know I'm freaking out over nothing. Thanks

There is something wrong, you need to see a doctor!!
First though, check out your lifestyle, Are you eating properly-??
Are you active, you have to move every day??
do you smoke?? Drink alcohol a lot?? use other drugs. Get enough sleep?
Are you happy at work??Stress in your personal life, that can mess you up?
Please check back,
Nan

Well, let me go back and answer those questions...
(thank you, by the way)

As far as eating properly is concerned, I do eat normal, balanced meals. I don't take any ADDITIONAL vitamins, so I guess that may be an issue, but I feel like if my body isn't makeing something I need, I'd rather know than be supplementing. Sleep? I barely get 6 hours. I don't know why. I stay up very late even when I'm exhausted because for some reason I don't fall asleep well. That might be a good place to start. I do smoke cigarettes, I only drink maybe once every few months, and I love my job and my personal life.

Anything wrong you might be thinking of?
