    @cartha trying talking to scope they might be able to help give them a ring on the helpline or email if you don't want to talk I know its hard 

    Sometimes you have to reach out and help comes in unexpected  ways I am the same different sge in my head 

    The situation with the pandemic  could go on for a whilst yet  so getting any sort of help is good it is only a suggestion 

    Take care ?

    Thank you, @lisathomas50. I'll send them an email later. :-)  You take care, too. How are you doing? You said you had the virus. Did you get it very bad? Hope you don't mind me asking.

    Good to hear you're on the mend, @lisathomas50. I think with Lupus that your body doesn't produce a good immune response (is that correct?) so your body can't defend you as easily from being reinfected. Hopefully they will find out for sure why some people are affected so much more than others with this virus. There seem to be a number of factors, including amount of vitamin D, blood type, etc. People I know who have been on oxygen have recovered but some take a very long time. Glad you're on the mend. Do you know where you caught it?  I'm worried about hospitals at the moment. Two people I know caught the virus from a hospital. Neither were in Wales. Our local hospital seems to have stopped appointments at the moment. A&E is open because I was taken there in September. I'm off to bed shortly. Seems quiet in here tonight. Take care :-)

    @cartha the first time I was a carer in the community I was on a ventilator poorly for 8 weeks  they told meci could get it again si stayed in but I had a hospital spointnrnt at morrisons hospital and I got it again  this time I got when I went for my eye test after my cataract operation 

    I didnt have a good immune system in first place becsuse of my lupus  thats why I cant have the vavine my body will regret it and fight against it and I would be poorly 

    It will take me a whilst to get better this time  though

    The way things are these days I think a birth like that would be all over Youtube in no time!

    I suppose you can be as tall as you like with the right wheelchair
