Covid

I have never had Covid. I understand though that it runs its course and that not a lot can be done other than treating symptoms. Paxlovid can lessen some of that but a lot of folks don't want to try it. 
 

My sister just got over covid. She had fever chills diarrhea and body aches. The worst of it was over in five days with lingering fatigue. She took Tylenol as needed added more liquids to her diet and slept a lot. 
 

If you're very unwell, seek medical attention. God bless. 

Symptoms ?

1. Reach out to your doctor ... not us

2. symptoms ? Severity is across a board range 

3. My Covid has always been it settling in my chest - I imagine with a new implant last thing you want is a cough !

Be smart about guarding against fluid in your lungs - don't lay flat ... sit up ... do breathing exercises 

4. lots of fluid to chase it out 

5. Did I mention calling Dr ? 

You know you're wired when...

You have an excuse for gaining an extra ounce or two.
