I am here to share my Covid recovery story to help educate people regarding the same. I first experienced a splitting headache along with a lot of heaviness. My headache soon came down to my eyes, causing them to hurt as well. I then had a fever (99-degree Fahrenheit) for two days. Other symptoms started piling up afterward, including cough, brain fog, and a constant feeling of uneasiness. The medicines continued for us, even after 20 days of maximum recovery and quarantine.
My kids were positive for corona as well. They had a mild fever for two days, and my daughter had a lingering cough too.
Thanks to the vaccine and its robust antibodies, my in-laws fought the virus successfully. Despite being old and ailing, the virus didn’t affect them in any way.
Our waste was getting disposed of with utmost care. The guards used to wear PPE kits and only then they'd come to our home to give us our daily essentials.
We chose to eat on disposable plates only. I would like to convey to people that they should go easy on themselves after Covid. It is a lot more different than other diseases and requires a lot of rest. You can practice easy breathing exercises like ‘anulom-vilom', 5-10 minutes of brisk walking, easy full-body stretches.
Remember not to do anything strenuous as it will only harm you in the long run. Giving your body enough rest is the only solution as they say that it takes about 2-3 months to recover from covid.
It has been a tad bit exasperating for an energetic person like me who is always into dancing and similar activities, but I know that it will get better with time, and patience is all I have left.
Also, please try and help as many people as you can with medicines, plasma, hospital beds, among other things. I pass on any and every information that comes to me and urge you to do the same.
Lastly, we are in this together. So let’s pledge to be kinder to ourselves and help others in need.
