Coping and support

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Most people with primary immunodeficiency can go to school and work like everyone else. Still, you may feel as if no one understands what it's like to live with the constant threat of infections. Talking to someone who faces similar challenges may help.

Ask your doctor if there are support groups in the area for people with primary immunodeficiency or for parents of children with the disease. The Immune Deficiency Foundation has a peer support program, as well as information on living with primary immunodeficiency.
