It has been really interesting to see how people have responded, learning that I have Covid. My own reaction was of shock and concern for my family after doing some more research about Omicron that my fears subsided. Because the Omicron Variant is mild compared to the first strain of Covid-19 and the Delta Variant. I am following my doctor’s recommendations, and I’m doing just fine.

When I started to inform my friends and family. Some of them thought I was going to be hospitalized, fighting for my life. Not what I wanted to hear, being at the sickest point with Covid. All it did was stress me out!

After that I decided not to get stressed out or worry about what might happen; I choose to focus on what I could do. I monitored my symptoms and after my fever broke I am getting better.

I have been getting my rest, taking over-the-counter medicine, and the biggest that has helped is taking my inhalers.

Anemia

I want to give a quick update about what’s been happening. I have been dealing with severe anemia again.

My iron is extremely low in my body, making me feel run down exhausted, be dizziness, and concentration is difficult. I am handling everything day by day.

My doctor believes somewhere internally that my body is losing a little bit of blood whether that’s in my digestive track or being caused by my menstrual cycle is yet to be determined.

I’m in the process now of getting tests done and being referred to other doctors to determine the causes of my anemia. I will be starting iron infusions in the next couple of weeks, which I’m hoping it will be next week. Until then I’m just taking it easy.
