All non-essential appointments on hold. This is such a crappy thing for those with chronic illnesses. While our needs might not be urgent at the moment it is so easy for everything to pile up and create a land slide. It is essential to stay in prevention mode.
Getting problems and symptoms managed is a challenge when the system is running as usual. Now it has become a chronic illness road block. On the one hand, we’re part of those at highest risk and don’t want to be out and about, but on the other hand we don’t want to ignore our medical problems either.
That specialist appointment you waited 6 months for? Cancelled. It’ll be rescheduled after the crisis and guarantee there will be another 6 month wait. It’s frustrating.
