      That would be so awkward , no that hasnt happened thank god. The diseases I work with in the lab mainly infect those that are immunocompromised ( people with bad/ broken immune systems) so its very unlikely that I would ever have an illness which I work on and know loads about!

      Thankfully no! The doctors that I’ve come across have all been super knowledgeable and helpful! I hope I’m never in that awkward position!
