What's wrong with me?

In the past 2 years I have had about 10 Upper respiratory infections /bronchitis. I recently started working at an after school place for children in late October and have had a diagnosed URI and diagnosed bronchitis since that time. I blamed it on the first diagnosis and that my immune system didn't fully recover and that's why I am sick again, until my mother and sister pointed out that I've had bronchitis numerous times in the past 2 years. And a few times in previous years before that. I've looked around to see what could be wrong with me and have really only found things pertaining to smokers. I am 20 years old and have yet to smoke a cigarette. My mom smoked well before I was born and the only other person I've known to smoke consistently is my stepmom but I was hardly around it. I have come across information on 'COPD' but I don't feel like I could have that at my age. I don't know, I am just concerned.
