Extremely Clinically Vulnerable

Having an autoimmune condition Systematic Lupus Erythematosus makes me Extremely Clinically Vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus and now the new strain of virus too. Since the virus came to be I’ve drastically limited my time outside to once a week only as I know exactly how poorly I can get. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Also, I don’t mind staying at home at all; it’s definitely my safe space. My employer is extremely supportive and I’m working from home. I do wish I could return to work, safely but we all know just how serious and potentially life threatening this disease is. It’s even worse for people with autoimmune conditions because our immune system is not as strong as everyone else’s. We have to take extra precautions and keep ourselves distant and safe.

Meeting up is a BIG no no.

Aayah 36]
