Thank You #flattenthecurve

Last week, I shared something really personal on Instagram. I had it sitting in my drafts for days, I even talked it over with my parents, but as I watched the news and the threat of Covid-19 become even more real, I knew I had to share.

When I was nine years old, I learned that I was born with a kidney disease. It has a really long name, but the short of it is that without medication, water, and exercise, my kidneys don't work. It's something I don't share freely. 

I knew this information would be news to family and long-time friends. 
That was the point. We don't know really know how vulnerable our community is - family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. 

That's why it's so important to take this seriously. Please stay at home if you can, wash your hands constantly, and keep informed.

I've been working from home since March 4th; I haven't been inside my parent's house since March 8th, and it seems like forever since I've seen my friends. 

I just have to remember this isn't forever, and I'm doing this for my health, for my friends, for my family, and for the neighbor I'll never meet. 

Thank you to everyone who's taking this seriously. I see you, and I appreciate you.
