sick all the time on top of anxiety

Does anyone else not only with with every day generalized anxiety but also get sick a lot from being so run down? I started working as a part time Nanny and also sub in local schools and I find I have been sick steady. I already cant work full time due to my constant anxiety but I don't want to call in sick all the time either when I'm feeling ill. I know I pick up a lot of germs from kids but I take vitamins, use hand sanitizer and try to eat generally well most of the time. I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions?

Hey mate, yes I'm often feeling run down and achy/fluey but without the full virus (sweats/chills). I'm just trying to keep fit, eat right and get plenty of rest, but still having all the tired and run down feelings, so really interested in anyone's suggestions too.
