Hello, I am 21 years old, I work in a daycare and I smoke... now that that is all out in the open, forget the silly responses about the ills of smoking and how childcare centres lower your immunity... I don't need fluff answers, the doctors give me enough of those. It seems that within the past year I get sick everytime I turn around... either I have a cold, or vomiting, or diarrhea... I eat healthy, I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and I generally get 8-9 hours of sleep each night, so what could be making me sick and so run-down all the time? Physically being sick is taking its toll on my mind as well making me feel lethargic and almost always in a state of doom and gloom, I've gotten blood tests done and everything else but keep getting told I'm "fine" and its likely allergies making me feel sick and run-down (which I doubt, I take reactine daily and don't feel nearly as much bothered by allergies). I want to know if anyone else is experiencing this same thing and what they're doing about it, or what any of you think this may be... all I can seem to find is that it could be Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, so I am interested in finding what else it could be... I need to find a way to feel better before I get fired for calling in sick so much -_-
Thanks for any help!
