Working and holding a job while suffering from NTM (MAC)
Hi, is everyone working and holding a job while dealing with NTM? If so I'd like to hear about your experinces and what kind of jobs you have and how do you manage woking while dealing with a chronic disease and side effects of medications. Not to forget the emotional and psychological pressure of this disease.
I am a hairdresser and have been off work and considering career change because I find my job physically vey demanding and it makes me too tired and I believe I shouldn't push myself too hard but instead keep my immune system high and not stress myself much. Can anyone offer their opinion or medical advice on whether as a hairdresser dealing with hair and hair products and blow drying hair can affect my MAC or not?
Also which job are better to avoid as a NTM/MAC patient and are more harmful to the lung condition.
Thank you in advance 🙂
