Coronavirus with a Chronic Illness: Calm vs CRAZY

Coronavirus is making everyone’s emotions run high and some properly tuned levity is always appreciated. That’s why we love this video clip from CreakyJoints member Nicole Dalton, who has been living with systemic-onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis for nearly 30 years.

Nicole is very immunocompromised — in fact, she just endured two debilitating bouts with flu earlier this year and is still not fully recovered. She is among the millions in the CreakyJoints community taking coronavirus prevention SERIOUSLY in all caps.

This video pokes fun at how healthy people can afford to think about personal hygiene in the wake of coronavirus outbreaks compared to those with underlying health issues.
