I have always been a sickly person.
When I was little, I can remember staying home from school a lot because of how sick I always was.
I had a very low immune system, and my parents did all that they could to help me, but they did not have much money. They took me to the doctor whenever they could, but most of the time, I just fought the sickness with the help of my loving mother who never left my side. Later in life, I found out that I have a couple of critical illnesses that contribute to my low immune function, so I have been able to fight back a little more than I used to be able to. I still have to be very careful about being around people that are sick. If I catch the common cold, I will have it for months. It just happened to me in December. I caught some sort of cold, and it took me two months to get over it. I actually found that the greatest help to me was my humidifier. I had never used a humidifier before, but I honestly wish that I would have tried to. After trying all of my usual methods for curing the common cold, I found that the worst time for me was at night when I was in bed. The air felt so dry, and I woke up miserable almost every morning. I bought a humidifier just to see if it would help, and it made the biggest difference! I am so glad I decided to buy a humidifier!
