It’s been almost two years since we’ve been in the Covid pandemic. I got Covid around Christmas 2020. That’s when I started having symptoms. I went to the urgent care two days later.
Here I am almost one year post Covid. When I say post Covid I’m referring to when I personally had Covid. It’s been an experience recovering from Covid during this year. I have what they call long Covid. While most of effects from Covid went away, there are a few I still dearth l deal with.
One of the biggest things is my respiratory issue. Doctor said my lungs look okay. Still, if I try to walk to fast or too long, or too much cardio exercise, I’m extremely winded. It has gotten a lot better since I try to do more walking cardio at home. What’s crazy is I didn’t exhibit any respiratory issues when I had Covid. It wasn’t until I went back to work. At the time I was working at Wal-Mart in a supervisory role. At first I thought it was because I was out of work for month. It didn’t get better. So my gave me two inhalers.
For those three months I made sure one was on me at all times and was using it fairly regular. I was still able to get 10,000 – 12,000 steps a day. Still this was too much. Now that I work from home and do short walking cardio I feel better. I still need to use or sometimes, but not nearly as much.
The other issue I still get is those powerful migraine like headaches. Those I did have a lot with Covid and the first few months after. Now a year later, I get them, but not as often. I can tell the difference from a regular headache and that Covid headache.
Even with all these issues I’m still grateful it wasn’t worse. With Covid still out there, I try to make I’m protected so I can protect my family. While it’s still possible to Covid, I hope I don’t. Granted I don’t go to many places already, but I don’t want to be forced to quarantine again if I don’t have to.
Have you had Covid? How long ago was it? How are you recovering or recovered? I want to hear from you.
