Many of you know it's cold and Flu season! And along with that comes germs! Germs that can not only make Eric sick, but they can cause severe complications, extended hospitalization and even death.
Please remember that we are not just affected by germs you may have,but also germs of those living in your household. This includes germs your pets can carry as well.
Some strains of the flu virus can last up to 2-3 weeks on surfaces. So even after you feel better and are no longer contagious, you can still be bringing germs into our home via your shoes, purse, cell phone ect.
Remember you could be working with someone who's immunosuppressant just like Eric. Many people fighting things like IBS, arthritis and other diseases can be affected. Just because a person 'looks healthy' doesn't mean that they are.
We appreciate your understanding during this time. Remember to avoid public places when you are sick(ie. Work, The gym, salon ect.) If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. You can truly save a life by washing your hands and using alcohol based hand sanitizers, Lysol wipes ect.
Eric was diagnosed with HLH & Still's Disease at 27 years old in 2012 and given only a 5% chance to live. This is his journey.
