The Long Covid Collective

Public·142 members

My name is Anna and I’ve been battling long Covid since November of 2022. I got Covid for the first time in October of 2022. My long Covid symptoms started pretty much right away. It started with a racing heart. I can’t believe I escaped getting Covid for as long as I did. I worked as a dental hygienist through the pandemic. My main symptoms are racing heart, heart palpitations, fatigue, anxiety and depression. There are many more but those are my worst symptoms. I have two amazing kids and the most supportive husband so I realize how lucky I am. I am struggling with so much guilt and grief over being sick. I can’t do half the things I used to be able to do. I do have good days which I’m so grateful for. Unfortunately I still have more bad days than good days. I’m being seen by a long Covid clinic that sees all their patients virtually. They tested my Covid spike protein and it’s really high. It’s supposed to be .8 or below and my number was over 9,200. They believe it is key for me to get my spike lowered and that then I will feel better. I’m on a bunch of supplements. Including Nattokinase and augmented NAC. Long Covid has completely uprooted my life and it has made me into someone I barely recognize. I used to be so social and now I’ve basically isolated myself from everyone. When I have good days I try to do as much as I can without overdoing it. Which is really hard. It breaks my heart that my kids have to see me like this.

Hi Anna,

Thank you so much for sharing your story. I’m so sorry to hear you have been struggling since October. I can imagine with all those symptoms it’s been so hard for you. It is so lovely that you have your husband and children for support but I can imagine it is also difficult as you don’t just have yourself to look after, it must be hard for them too. I am so sorry.❤️‍🩹 I really appreciate you mentioning what supplements you are taking, I will definitely be looking into those. Please don’t think you’re alone with the whole pacing thing, I am exactly the same!!

We will get there Anna though, no matter what, we will get there and feel better.

It has been so wonderful to chat with you about everything over the last few weeks, you’ve been such a wonderful support. Thank you!

And again, thank you so much for sharing your story so beautifully and bravely. Sending you so much love ❤️
