quote:At the time I had commented in the original of the below post, there were about 6700 comments. As per my below observation <300 belonged to males and all of the rest were by other females. Why do you think that females are expressing themselves about 50 times more than the males in this case? Any answer/guess will help me further my understanding. Thank you. *** “Thank you for sharing your story and encouraging the rest of us to remain vigilant. I have hardly ever seen such a post that you can almost tell that the next commentator will be another female. Assuming that your post was read by both sexes in similar frequency, very few males have decided to express their thoughts or feelings. On the other hand, females are sending support, empathy, prayers, thoughts, get well wishes, etc. While this observation cannot be generalized, and should not mean the male gender does not have these good qualities that females have unashamedly expressed, it is still very strange for me to see that the vast majority of responders are females. Best wishes for a fuller recovery.” Anyways, here goes. Today is my six month anniversary of coming down with Covid. I’ve been dealing with the repercussions for SIX MONTHS. I didn’t want to share on Facebook before, but I have shared privately with friends. Today I decided I was tired of hiding and hoping my story will be a warning to others. In the past six months: I landed in the hospital because my chest pain was so bad that it required iV pain killers and my fever required iv fluids. I’ve had pneumonia twice. My lung capacity has been reduced because of lung fibrosis (damage) I’ve had pleurisy I’ve had inflammation of the cartlidge in my rib cage I’ve had so much brain fog. I haven’t thought straight for 6 months. I constantly have to go back and do things twice. I can’t drink alcohol because my liver is inflamed and the alcohol makes me feel bad now. I have had chest pain and shortness of breath every single day. I can only walk for exercise. Anything more and I cannot breathe normally. Before March 16 I used to do spin classes 3/week. My resting heart rate is 101. It used to be 55. Fast forward to today. I just left the cardiologist because I’m going to have to have two different echocardiograms and a MRI to determine the severity of my heart damage. Covid is scary. Covid can cause an inflammatory response that doesn’t land you on a vent but can be life changing. I would be characterized as having a “mild to moderate” case of coronavirus. My cardiologist is hopeful but doesn’t know what to do about me. It’s not in my head he says! I’m his tenth patient in September who has come to him with these long term symptoms. Average stats of “long haulers” as we are called is 44 (me!) a woman (me!) and previously fit/healthy and no preexisting conditions (me!) I go on with daily life, baking bread, helping the kids, wiping down counters bc that’s what you do. You can’t lay in bed forever. Doctor tells me I’m full of antibodies (I hope I still am) and I’m not contagious. I have to live the life I’m dealing with now. Anyways I share not to get any sympathy. I share because I feel people are getting fatigued of hearing about Covid and have moved on. I get it. It’s exhausting. But I want people to still continue to take this monster seriously. Here’s a picture of the heart monitor I have to wear now. Stay healthy. (Edited to add: feel free to share. The support shown below has made it clear that it may be helpful for someone else not on my fb page) Edited to add (9/19). The response to this has been amazing. Honestly I thought 50 people would like this post. I’m getting messages from all over the planet and so many people are getting the message. Thank you so much Editing one last time (10/28) THANK YOU so much to every single one of you who have reached out to me via PM. I’m so sorry I can’t respond to everyone but it means so much that you took the time to do so.
