Hi guys! A few weeks ago I started a special COVID rehab/revalidation programme and I thought I would share some insights and symptom managing excercizes with you, since this type of therapy is not available everywhere.

In the Netherlands you can get a referral from your GP if you still have symptoms 5+ months after your infection. They will refer you to a specialized physiotherapist, and sometimes also a occupational therapist (ergotherapeut), a psychologist etc.You only need to pay a small amount, the other portion will be covered by your insurance for 6 months.

My biggest struggles symptom wise are: fatigue, any screentime gives me headaches and palpitations and worsens my brainfog etc, showering makes me out of breath and tired, eating makes me nauseous.

Basic points:

- the first thing I learned is that my symptoms have nothing to do with my stamina. So it is not…

Charlotte! Thank you Thank you Thank you! This is just fantastic and I know I won’t be the only one to say, I so appreciate you sharing this. You have honestly written this brilliantly. You should think about starting your own blog!

I am so pleased you have been given this information and you were able to share it with us. You are certainly right that this type of therapy is not available in different countries. I found that in the UK there hasn’t been much information spread on ways to support recovery. But I know ever clinic and county is different.

There are different things on here that I have never heard of (and I am a serial researcher!) so this is just great and I know that others will be very appreciative of this too. Thank you again Charlotte for all of this. I wish you all the best with this programme and hope it continues to be super helpful to you and I think an update would be absolutely great. ❤️☺️
