I was infected with the coronovirus in March of 2020 soon after it came to Washington State. I started feeling like I had a sinus infection or head cold. My throat was itchy and I had terrible migrains. I went to my primary care physician after being sick about one week. My doctor thought i had a head cold as well.
Video 1 of my covid journey
I was sick for nearly 2 weeks before before being admitted to the hospital. My body was very weak, I hadn't eaten for four days and eventually, I wasn't making it to the bathroom on time from either end. I talked to my son and he told me I had all the symptoms of covid. I had also been communicating with my Natropath who had me go and get a chest exray. The exray showed I had pneumonia in my left lung so he put me on an antibiotic.
After a week I wasn't getting better and though I was afraid to go to the hosipital and and get a positive diagnosis, I figured it was better than losing my life. So, we got in the car and went. I was very weak. Being fifty eight and diabetic I was scared I wasn't going to make it with all the television reports.
I was one of the first ones to get it when it came to Washington State and after it spread through several elder care facilities. I was and am the only ones my friends and family knew that had it. Here's my video blogs.
When a long time friend of 30 something years saw the first one, she said she thought to herself, "Oh boy, she's on her way out of here." However, I told her that I was feeling 50 percent better as I had been on the hydrocloquin 1 day at the time.
I was inspired to write this blog because of this article I read The National Institutes of Health (NIH) said in a press release on Saturday June 20, 2020 stating that it has halted a clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of adults hospitalized with COVID-19. "
My trusting human side said, "What? I should let them know how it turned my covid experience around." Then my conspiracy mindset said, "They know it works, that's why they're stopping it." Oh, what a suspicious mind I have.
I strongly believe that we should fight for the use of hydroxychloroquine for covid-19, coronavirus and encourage anyone that has been helped by it to speak out. As soon as I figure out who will listen, in the government agencies, I'll let you know.
