Auto immune testing for person with extensive family history

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.

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?

Am I Immune to Subsequent Rotovirus Infections?

I have what appears to be rotavirus-- symptoms are a perfect fit and it's confirmed to be making the rounds among parents and staff at my daughter's preschool. Having had it, am I now immune? I've never felt so sick as an adult and I would like to know that I will never get it again.

Looking for spaceship-themed immune system video

I remember seeing this really cool spaceship-themed immune system video in school about 7 years ago. I don't remember the name, but I'd love to find it and watch it again. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

How does the immune system work?

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?
