32 SERIOUS PEOPLE WHO RECOVERED FROM COVID19 IT LIKE

1. than…

I had it in early April, probably from working at a quarantine facility where we didn't have enough PPE.

Loss of smell was my only symptom for a few days. Then mild productive cough. Then fatigue, body aches, and trouble breathing. Never had a fever, indigestion, etc.

The scariest part was at that point, no one knew how to manage it. My doctor had zero advice other than rest and fluids. Didn't know what meds to avoid, expected progression, nothing.

My family and friends checked in a lot. They freaked out if I acted too sick, so I pretended my symptoms were much more mild than they were. I only shared my real symptoms with my partner and my doctor. In that regard, it was very lonely.

Difficulty breathing lasted about 5 days, then started to get better. Fatigue was the last symptom to disappear, it lingered about 10 days after I'd tested negative.

ETA:
I'm 25. EMT, was working reduced hours when I got exposed. No pre-existing conditions.
