I wish people would take my weakened immune system seriously…
All my life, I’ve caught bugs, colds and flus very very easily. But in the last ten years or so, it’s been much worse. Because of this, I have every vaccination available to me. The flu one, the pneumonia one, the meningitis one, the hepatitis ones, and five COVID vaccines. I avoid sick people like they literally have the plague.
But then I get my sister and nephew that come over, and the gremlin will crawl all over me. Which I don’t mind. But then just as she leaves she tells me that he’d been throwing up ALL NIGHT.
I run and wash my hands again (I do this repeatedly when he’s here cus my nephew likes to slobber). But, right on schedule… 3am this morning I wake up and had to sprint into the bathroom and even then, I didn’t make it to the toilet to be sick. I projectile-vomited all over the sink. I then spent nearly an hour curled up on the bathroom floor, shivering and being sick. My stomach muscles are so sore. My head hurts.
She KNOWS I’m immuno-compromised. Yet she repeatedly pulls this crap when she feels lonely and wants to spend time with someone.
I’m just really fricking frustrated and sore. 😞
