Please take a moment to watch this video that my friend, Christy Dee posted about how to properly wear a mask. Like me, Christy has Crohn's Disease, but she also has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome. Her mask literally saves her life so I trust what she says about them.
The world is a scary place lately. Regardless of the Covid-19 virus we are all trying to avoid, we can pick up any kind of germs and pass them anywhere to anyone. For those who have a compromised immune system, because of underlying health conditions or medications we take, it makes going anywhere in public that much more dangerous. Lots of people are wearing masks and makeshift masks, but they aren't really doing anything to protect anyone if they aren't being worn correctly. Even if you don't have a fancy mask, you can still protect yourself, as well as others, by using your homemade mask properly.
First, let's take a look at some masks that DO NOT work. Please don't do this. You just look like an idiot and you aren't helping anyone.
Now, let's take a look at Christy's video so see exactly how you should wear your mask so it will actually help you, and others.
Thanks for making this video, Christy! The world is a better place because of you.
