I’ve officially just been told I need to be shielding (via a phone call from my local hospital lead asthma nurse). As I’m on benralizumab injections (due 4/4) she also informed me I will be doing it from home from now on. As she put it; ‘Ordinarily we’d get you in to demonstrate you know how to do it. This is not ordinary times...’
I’ve been told they are auto injectors, similar to an epipen, so hopefully it will come with easy to follow directions ‘stab, click, hold, remove’ etc 😅 (if not I have an ex-nurse friend who has offered to stab me if needs be 😂)
So she’s setting up the system so it can be delivered to me (and then all I have to do is leave it in fridge until it’s due)
Hopefully this will all work out, and in the long run, once this is over, I should be able to avoid the 2-monthly appts to be stabbed (3hr round trip costing £12+ via public transport each time...)
Now the worry is finances as a self employed individual who can’t work....
