I had the good fortune to have a conversation with what’s termed a “long haul” COVID 19 survivor…my client Anna.
“It feels like my heart is going to wear out. It can’t possibly beat like this and live a long life,” she told me in our hour-long interview.
Anna prior to contracting COVID was a half marathoner and in tip-top shape. She lives in Southern California and said, “10,000 steps a day was no big deal to me back then.” Months after contracting COVID she couldn’t walk for more than 10 minutes around her house.
Walk. Just walk.
Come listen to this compelling and fascinating story from a woman who braved the virus from the get-go. She experienced a myriad of symptoms (that did not strike her family) and systematically searched for someone or something to help her feel better. She often wondered, “Is this my life now?”
I could have talked to her for hours. Tune in, and if you know someone struggling, the resources she has devoted the last 6 months curating will be located at the bottom of this blog.
Her spirit and quest to be well is amazing and heartbreaking all at the same time.
“I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy,” she told me.
