It has been a rough couple of years and it all started because of stupid Covid! The first time I got it I had issues swallowing and some breathing. I also developed a weird tongue issue where it swells if I talk too long or stress. I also developed chronic sinutitis and never had problems before. Months went by and eventually I started to get migraines lasting a month at a time, no major issues prior. My second time was when it really went downhill for me. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia that is combined with chronic fatigue syndrome and I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and myocarditis (enlarged heart chamber) The second time also triggered POTS symptoms, haven't been diagnosed but pretty sure I have it since I can't stand or walk for long periods without my heart rate trippled. I have long Covid combined with Covid asthma. I could go into detail about my symptoms but it's just too much right now. I sadly developed these new disorders/disabilities and a good amount of the time the pain or fatigue can be debilitating. I used to be a hard worker and very independent so it has been a hard transition. My own family thinks I am being overly dramatic because they've had post Covid (yeah uh probably not since they're better now after only a month of symptoms)! The only blood family that is by my side is my mom, at least I have her. I lost the few friends I thought I had because they too think I am just being dramatic. Let me just say that some days I wish I was just being dramatic because it is no picnic dealing with all these new problems. It's been two years dealing with this and I was making slight improvements until I got Covid for the third time! I have to start my therapy all over again and adjust my pain meds to help me semi tolerate it. I have tried many meds with failure to all but Flexeril and I am only taking it at night per the doctor but it wears off sometimes when I wake up so it mostly helps me sleep. Long thought but using this as a vent place so it's not all over other social media platforms because not one person will even reach out directly if I am noticed as struggling. People only want to see the fake plastic world of puppies and kittens. I know from experience...I post sadness and needing a friend I get nada but if I post a picture or pictures of me or with my partner and all of a sudden boom people liking, loving and commenting. I wish people were more real and actually cared about other humans....even the struggling ones because we all need love and compassion!
