Hi everyone, I need opinions on what to do. I have to finish my internship to graduate at a healthcare facility or hospital. My problem is that I started on metho about 3 weeks ago and I don't know if it is safe for me to be around so many sick people! Also another problem was that my immune system was already suppressed before starting immune suppressant/methotrexate. I've had shingles and bronchitis a lot. I was even tested for HIV & cancer (negative), but all rheum could come up with was that the lupus/sjogrens was causing the decreased immunity. I'm so scared of picking up infections like MRSA or pneumonia, but I really need this to graduate. Has anyone else worked in healthcare while on immune suppressants?
