I've recovered from the blood clots in my lungs and the Covid pneumonia but still have hypoxia, scar tissue and fibroids. I'm on oxygen and finding it very difficult to exercise without my oxygen saturation dropping to below 90. I don't know why this happened to me or what to expect in the future.
I'm so sorry for all you have been through and are going through. Sending {{HUGS}} your way.

Sad to say but Covid resembles the cancer disease.

It has no age limit
It has no status limit
It has no boundaries
It has no fitness limits

It will attach any one. It does not discriminate

Ilyana. Got breast cancer. Healthy fit woman.

Don’t matter what you drink eat or don’t eat

It’s just the nature of the beast. Believe it.

Sorry for all that have struggled.

My husband and I both had covid early on and he was at high risk due to some health issues. We followed protocols recommended by orthomolecular Drs - quercetin, high dose vit c, d3, zinc, k2, garlic pills, oregano oil, olive leaf. DH had it twice as long as I did, but he was able to work full 8 hour days at home and we both recovered with no lasting issues. We both were eating super clean - no processed foods, vegan, whole food plant based. Neither of us was exercising around this time.

I had relatives who were super fit and active, but ate meat & sugar heavy diets and had covid longer & had to go on steroids to clear up lungs & cough.

DH's aunt & cousin were meat eating smokers who both were hospitalized and his aunt put on ventilator. Over a year later both still have long covid.

My mom never had covid, got the vaccine and had an adverse reaction, which I posted about in other covid thread.

My husband and I also took most of the same supplements to strengthen our immune system. We were/are in the high risk group. I also am vegan, but exercise regularly. I had a very mild case. He had absolutely no symptoms.

What many people don't realize is that those same supplements can aid in their recovering from Covid. Quercetin is used by many to help respiratory function.

The Swing
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside—

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown—
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!

The other thread was closed before I had the chance to reply---prayers and well wishes to your family and I truly hope your mom can heal. And thanks to all those who had kind words. Times are tough and you never know when just a little compassion can bring a light into someone's darkness.
