hi everyone i just wanted to hop on here and talk about some things i’ve been going through recently. i just tested positive for covid 19, and it’s been very hard on me. after diligently wearing a mask, getting double vaxxed, and getting my booster shot, it still wasn’t enough to save me from getting it. i feel exhausted and terrible and i’m unsure how this will effect the diagnoses i already have. my grandmother also revealed to me today that when i was a child, i was diagnosed with a mitochondrial disease. as i had a very turbulent childhood, my medical records were lost and she has been trying to figure out what i was diagnosed with. as a college student who is about to start their fourth semester, this is very hard on me. i’m wondering if anyone has any advice for dealing with covid symptoms as someone who is chronically ill, or if anyone has any knowledge of mitochondrial disorders that might help. thank you so much in advance, anything would help.

      I got it and I was double vaxxed and had been constantly wearing masks everywhere too.. I understand how frustrating it is. You're not alone. <3 I've been out for two weeks but I'm slowly but surely returning to my old self. It takes time but it does get better. As for how it's affected my other chronic illnesses, I haven't really noticed a difference fortunately. I hope that it doesn't get too harsh on you and I wish you all the best 🤞

      I got covid before vaccines were out and developed long haul, which might just be a long and particularly bad flare up of a preexisting condition. My tip is to rest for as much extra time as you can after quarantine and to take vitamin d and a multivitamin if you aren't already to help with the fatigue. Slowly reconditioning to get back to your typical activity level is really important. Trying to go right back to full time retail and college was terrible for me. Take care <3

      I have an autoimmune and I got covid with 2 shots and i was out of work for 3 weeks, just took a little longer to heal but I’m back to moving around and it does get better. I’m sorrry you didn’t have a diagnosis until recently, but with now having a named diagnosis it can only get better from here even if it doesn’t feel that way right now. Knowing what it is is the first step!
