YANMD. I've had all kinds of weird undiagnosable stuff going on. I'm 29 female. There is a history of auto immune disorders (asthma, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, gall bladder removals, rheumatoid arthritis, other miscellaneous stuff) on the maternal side of my family(mother and grandmother).

Seeking a better understanding of the immune system. As I understand it: #1 I am exposed to bug. #2 I get bug. #3 I am now immune to bug. I understand that open wounds, chemo, or ailments that suppress the immune system would cause a person to fall ill more easily. How could a product effect a person's immune response?

The silver lining to colds and flus has always been that at least my immune system is better for it, and I’ll be less likely to catch the next thing. However, I’ve caught 3 colds (or something- they were all different, and none were serious) this year and it’s only May! In the past I’ve caught maybe one thing a year. Does your immune system stop improving as you get older? Why do old people get sick more easily? And how old are you when that starts? And how possible IS it to reinfect yourself with the exact same virus or bacteria? Once you’ve had something, wouldn’t your immune system just whomp it the next time it came by?
