How many people who have had and recovered from Covid are ever shown on the news? Apparently every third person has had it, you would think they would want to tell you how well they are doing now on the news. THERE ARE SO MANY POSITIVES, lets hear there stories...
Look no further ... (30-40 year old)
I had COVID twice. ( both times unconfirmed through a test) due to the fact that a test involves a 4 hour round trip by car, a several day wait for the test itself and another 5 day wait for the results) ( despite living in a town of 30,000 w/ a hospital)
Long term impact: Loss of smell and taste for a few weeks/ diminished sense of smell/ taste for a few months
Nasty cough/ crap in lungs
Loss of smell
No change in diet ...
Physical activity resumed? Yes. - mountain biking, hiking, snowshoeing at -30, frequent walking a few weeks later.
I took this more seriously... with the variant thing occurring... I felt like I should up the anti on precautions so I did.
Contracted from working in a non-aviation job. Three other coworkers whom I was on shift with contracted COVID.
Extreme fatigue ( falling asleep on the couch randomly)
Minor dry cough
Cold sweats ( waking up drenched in sweat)
Diminished lung capacity/ stamina
Brain fog, dizziness, short fuse
Sniffles ( lol)
Isolated, essential oil rubbed on chest/ neck which greatly helped symptoms.
Foods consumed: organic/ clean, soups, curries, organic bone broths w/ fresh garlic ,
Fluids: lemon ginger tea/ honey, elderberry tea, pine needle tea,
Mental health remedies: mediation and Breathwork geared towards having a reduced lung capacity. ( also helped) - went off of all social media, small daily walks in nature near house for vitamin D/ mental health. - I stayed clear of anyone but elk, squirrels, trees, lichen etc. Maybe I caused an elk covid outbreak or Douglas fir variant? ... time will tell. Time will tell..
Physical activity resumed: After 14 + days light downhill mountain biking, mild cardio, light hiking, mountain biking will be gradual but not un achievable.
Health at the time : autoimmune condition , asthmatic high familial stress. Not overweight.
I knew several other people who had similar experiences in a similar age range. ( 3 people) one of them had COVID twice.
Again, I want to emphasize in both cases I was burned out and stressed out, working long hours, commuting, sleep issues attributable to COVID/ family issues. ( COVID caused)
Typically, I struggle with the seasonal flu and need to ensure that the flu does not morph into pneumonia. ( which it has several times in the past) This did not occur with COVID. I have been far sicker with the seasonal flu than COVID... one time of which I was nearly hospitalized after having mono/ pneumonia concurrently.
I’d describe my experience as having a nasty cold/ flu that has neurological symptoms and drags on forever .. that one needs to watch carefully and not over exert oneself while having COVID/ in the recovery phase ( my experience) With being pedantic with diet, rest, meditation, supplements...really helped.
Take from this what you wish... I hope it helps .. with people’s discernment around what’s happening in our country/ world.
