After much searching, I think it’s very likely that I have Long COVID. There are multiple issues in different bodily systems simultaneously that can’t be explained otherwise. There are a few other systemic explanations that could the case, but the usual suspects have been ruled out.
Much like the others suffering from the same, I have dizziness, headache, brainfog, extreme lethargy and in my case chronic inflammation and debilitating pain to touch.
It’s been bad for the past two years but it seems to be getting a lot worse right now. Especially in moving about and doing normal stuff. This is why the most exciting trip in my life has been going to do the laundry.
It has been terrifying reading about the stories of other active, international travellers in my age category who, like me, just stopped being able to move normally and got bedridden. Some of them even committed suicide as they lost the will to live.
Long COVID is horrific. Utterly horrific. And very poorly understood.
I’ve got the research that I need but medications and treatment here might not be as easy as the government has de-prioritized COVID related matters.
I can still push through, and have to, as the breadwinner of the family. Spiritual practice works wonders here but it is still utterly exhausting.
And the prices of stuff just keep going up here. I haven’t been able to cook in a long long time.
So it’s one of those very hard times for us.
But we’re doing our best. Bro is hit pretty hard too, harder in some ways.
Am resting from my advocacy efforts as well as the health aspect of things needs more attention right now.
I’m sure there’s an energetic component to all this as well. And I have a lot of things to try.
