Hello Margaret


Affected Effected
Meaning "Affected" means "impacted, created an effect on, changed in a certain way." "Effected" means "executed, brought about, produced something."

Infected means: to affect or contaminate (a person, organ, wound, etc.) with disease-producing germs.
2.
to affect with disease.
3.
to taint or contaminate with something that affects quality, character, or condition unfavorably:
to infect the air with poison gas.
4.
to corrupt or affect morally:


I guess all three words would apply to this diseae as it acts on the family and friends

Thank you!

I searched all three words for an extended period of time and could not get out of my head on which was the best.

So I appreciate your rescuing response.

I am enjoying this board - I am in the midst of learning/applying Step 1.
