No matter how careful you are these days—vaccinated or not vaccinated—we live in a pandemic world, and there is always a risk of catching COVID…or rather, COVID catching you. Unless you’ve been working the front lines for the past 1.5 years, I know you THINK you know the dangers of COVID and how you’ll deal with the disease if you have to, but I guarantee, you have no clue what is about to take over your life after your test results come back positive.
Sadly, if your experience is anything like mine, you’ll be told to go home, drink lots and LOTS of fluids, and head to the ER if you have breathing problems. I quote the physician seen at the clinic I went to, “There is no cure.” People, wake up! Know the facts. That’s just not true! You’re not a hopeless case. You *DO* have options, but you HAVE to put in the work at the beginning of your diagnosis, and the best way to keep yourself from being overwhelmed is to have a plan ahead of time. Let me tell you: it is better to have a plan and not need it than to find yourself scrambling to find information in crisis mode. I promise you, you won’t have the energy or focus when COVID starts kicking in to help yourself as adequately as you’d like or need. Get prepared now!
What I share here is ONLY MY EXPERIENCE. This information is not shared to treat, diagnose, tell you what to do, or take the place of doctor’s advice. You do what you need to for you and your situation. Every person is different, and there are many, many varying medical situations which will alter individual care. I’m just here to point out speed bumps that I encountered and hopefully steer you away from a dead end—literally.
