I have a brother that does work with vent patients in Fargo and has seen many people pass from COVID. I can’t imagine working in a respiratory field.
I cannot seem to function MOST of the time. Periodic low fevers, confusion, ringing in my ears, chest pains, muscle pain, brain on fire, face and chest compression muscle spasms, can’t remember, cannot multitask, swollen glands, swelling in the back of my neck, fatigue, bad ticks, cannot get my words right, cannot organize, eyes not working right, dry mouth, teeth hurt, muscle spasms, smell off, taste nothing, hard time remembering how to spell.
I ended up sick in bed for 3 weeks, but I am alive. Since then, I have had many new health problems come up.
In March of 2021, I received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine for COVID. My symptoms improved a lot.
I tested positive for COVID-19 on September 16, 2020. I coughed the first couple of days, it was dry and hacky and constant. Then, after a day I started to notice my taste and smell were gone. It’s been a year and a month now and I still hardly smell and taste anything. Some things are foul, and most of the time I don’t taste anything. It is hard to eat with no taste.
I’m 48, and I got COVID-19 in November of 2020. At first, we thought I was asymptomatic – until day seven. Then the truck hit me.
My story is different than most.
I was a healthy 39-year-old female with no underlying health conditions when I tested positive for COVID-19 from a work exposure in late October 2020.
It’s always frustrating to me when I hear the statistics in ND of those people who have ‘recovered’ from COVID. It has been 13 months since my COVID-19 illness and I’m far from recovered.
COVID-19 hit my family hard. We are a family of six children (four girls and two boys); our parents and one sister passed before COVID-19 hit.
