Some sickness are made!

At times I have trouble breathing!
 I toss and turn trying to warm up!
I've even broken out a few times!
 Alone is how I remain all mine!
I need my health!
 Pain in my bones!
Day after day!
 Muscles that keep hurting!
I hate they even look my way!
 I do not like to eat out at times!
The food makes me sick!
 My stomach cramps and then begins to ache!
I've had a few jobs!
 Yet please do not offer a picnic to me!
I'll always end up at a desk!
 Perhaps, inside at my workspace!
Heat on and just writing about it again!
 Please keep your distance I hear you in the wind!
Do not come near me!
 For you really just make me sick!
