I'm here posting a personal story after a bout from the variant. I am fully vaccinated. I was hospitalized 2 months later. I was curious if I am just a rare breed? Hope so.
I am in the high risk group (healthy, middle-aged woman taking BC) for blood clots, but otherwise very healthy (athlete), and admitted for...some of the fatal risks discussed at length. I was terrified, very sick, and the illness happened so fast, I thought I was going to die.
I spent a week in the hospital, with so many tests surrounding my clotting factors and liver enzymes was in the "fatal" numbers (I'm sorry, I'm an LPN), tested (covid19-). Now post hospitalization, I have long hauler gastrointestinal issues that I have never had before. No more southern plates for a while 😑
I said all of this to let folks know that eventhough I did what I needed to do for the greater good, my gut kept telling me no ( all the puns intended) the entire time. I wanted a place for all healthcare folks to decompress all their fears, no judging zone. And it's OK to feel whatever you feel. I did, my correlations came true, however, I am grateful for great healthcare we all strive for all. God bless...and stay safe out here.
