Emergen-C why dost thou...

forsaketh me? I add you faithfully to my water daily. I take all my other multi-vitamins as well. I try to get enough rest. Since I've arrived at Real Life Fitness and Health (Fat Camp!)...I've been eating healthfully too. I wash my hands after going to the bathroom, before meals, anytime I touch something gross, and pretty much any other time it crosses my mind. I cover my mouth if I cough or sneeze and try to avoid being around people that seem sick. So, why-oh-why, Emergen-C, do I keep getting sick? It seems that I'm doing everything right. I stand back and watch those around me touch sweaty gym equipment and then wipe their noses with their hands and then touch the equipment again. I think about all the people that walk casually out of the bathroom without washing their hands. I watch other Fat Camp attendees line up like starving cattle in a feed lock to get their meals...straight from the few of them bothering to take the few extra moments at the sink to wash their hands. It confounds me, Emergen-C. Why is it me that gets sick and they that stay healthy? Is it the conspiracy between the germs and my ass? Have I stayed so clean throughout the years that my immune system hasn't had a chance to learn to fight off bacterial bugs and viruses and other weapons of destruction? I don't get it. Please help me get over whatever this bug is quickly, Emergen-C. I've been faithful to you for many years...don't fail me now.
