At risk

Today, after being on steroids to suppress my immune system, I found out it causes pulmonary embolisms. If I stop taking my steroids, my body will try to kill me, but if I take the steroids, the meds will try to kill me. I’m only 35 and was fit before this. FML

They *may* cause pulmonary embolism. Not "will", "may".
It's listed as a potential side effect, not something that is going to happen to everyone that takes it

In my case, it definitely did. Worse, I just had to get tested for CoVid, since i have 6 symptoms from it. I barely step foot out of my house, and wear a mask and wash hands religiously every time. Hope its negative, but after losing my taste and smell with a fever of 101.3F for 4 days straight, i wouldn’t be shocked if I got Coronavirus.
