I have cut out grains and sugars and I am sick all the time. I work with kids in a public school but even before this I was sick. It sucks and I hate it. I am a firm believer in staying home and away from others when sick but there comes a moment when you just can't and still have a job. If I were perfect (or rich) I would make the right choice but as it is I do what I can do and keep on going.
You know all those things you wanted to do: You should go do them.
