I was pretty sick as a kid. My immune system was hardly functioning like it should. With life-threatening allergies and asthma, bronchitis 3-4 times per year, sinus infections every other month, and lots of trips to the doctor, it seemed hopeless that I would ever get better. I had many rounds of antibiotics to recover from each bout of illness, but nothing seemed to prevent me from getting sick the next time. At one point, I had 27 pills to take each morning and 21 at night.
