Hi friends… I felt it was my responsibility to share that I ended up having Covid-19. I have since tested negative, but have been extremely ill for over three weeks and still have persistent symptoms. I was incredibly safe. I wore a mask. I used hand sanitizer. Once, as the world started to open up, I decided to give up wearing my mask in public. A. Time. And I ended up getting it. I think maybe it’s because of this one time. People say it’s like having the flu, but I’ve had the flu, and it’s absolutely not that. The panic of catching a virus that is fundamentally incurable and is so new that no one knows the irreparable long-term damage it does to your immune system is incredibly stressful. Losing my sense of smell and taste completely without knowing when or even if they will return is extremely disorienting. I only feel about 30% of what I used to feel now. Other persistent symptoms are (one month later) dizziness, extreme fatigue, affected sinuses, upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, and fever. I’m lucky. Because I am not dead. But people are. Please wear your mask. It can happen at any time. And it can happen to anyone. Even this time you feel safe. We can all make a difference. Wearing a mask saves lives. Thank you to everyone who contacted me during this scary time. Be careful there. Let’s all do our part and wear a mask. I don’t want any of you to go through what I did. Even though it’s a small thing, it can have a huge impact, and it’s so incredibly easy to do❤️
