Together, we can make a difference!
I was diagnosed with Primary Immunodeficiency - Common Variable Immune Deficiency in October 2018. The diagnosis come after I got very sick from salmonella positioning, which resulted in many complications. Since my diagnosis I have had weekly infusions of Immune Globulin to help maintain my health.
What is CVID? I does not have a functioning immune system, my body is unable to fight off common infections or retain vaccinations to protect me from illnesses and diseases. In return I needs to receive a blood plasma product to help give his immunity to common illnesses and disease I'm not protected against. I will need to get weekly infusions for the rest of my life to sustain a semi-normal immune system.
Covid19 has come with additional concerns for those with immune deficiencies. As all our worlds have changes due to this pandemic. We have approach this Covid19 challenge with great caution and our primary focus this summer has been safe and health.
We don’t know what the future holds with this diagnosis as every person with CVID is different and have different ailments hence the zebra symbol but I know we have the support and love of our family and friends.
Thanks for reading!
