Good Evening Warriors!
Has it not been the craziest 2 years? Seriously!?
I have Lupus, 2 different kidney diseases (nephrocalcinosis, and polycystic kidney disease) and as of May 2020, have started pain management for Chronic Pain associated with a spinal rod/fusion surgery I had 25 years ago.
I am so torn! I, like most of the rest of us immuno- compromised, have been basically homebound since March 2020. The chronic pain thing keeps me bed bound most days while I have waited to find out exactly what options I have with my current hardware. I have been offered an extention of my current rods and fusion (S1 L5 Fusion) but I will have to wait 2 months before I can have it as I do smoke on occasion.
I am so so so tired of being in this house all day everyday! As with the rest of us, I do spend a GREAT amount of time going above and beyond to try and protect myself (as well as my family respecting my need for protection) but with Covid... it so extreme and so much more of an unknown and paranoia.
So that being said, I originally had decided I WAS NOT getting the vaccine as there was just not any Info posted or even trialed for those of us with Autoimmune disorders. So I automatically just NIXED the idea at all. I do not take the flu vaccine because the one time I did, I was dealthy ill for 2 weeks. Never again.. lol
But this is something so new and different and quite scary. The more time that passes thr more I am actually considering getting this vaccine as it's mRNA and not live, but I am still quite unsure because of all of the unpublished info on just how many people are not having good reactions.
I have decided to call and speak with ALL of my physicians and get the opinion of them all in regards to what may be best for my medical conditions. But I am curious as to is anyone has actually gotten covid 19 and your experience with it... and whom all has received the vaccine and the experience with that as well.
Anyone care to share? Anyone have any pertinent info in regards to new research or pros and cons they would like to out out there to consider?
Any stories, input, or info is kindly appreciated!
Health and Happiness to all!
