Together at home: your stories of ‘life in lockdown’

Most of us have experienced restrictions in our lives as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Some liver patients are particularly vulnerable, and are having to take extra precautions to keep themselves safe, such as shielding or self-isolating. Some of those people have kindly shared their story with us.

Please keep in mind that the terms 'shielding', 'self-isolating' and 'social distancing' are sometimes used interchangably by liver patients. If you'd like to know the difference in meaning, you can read our blog about it.

We hope that by reading about others' experiences, liver patients can take comfort that they're not alone during this challenging time, share their tips, give messages of support and feel like we're all in this 'together at home'.
