Updated 1/2/2023: Covid 19’s impact on asthmatics is, in a word, awful. I’m now five weeks (and on day 38 of recovery ) into a variety of medications and devices. All are aimed to fight back and rid my lungs and sinuses of significant inflammation and congestion.
Follow-on illnesses since contracting COVID over Thanksgiving? They include a prolonged asthma attack and reactive airway infection (acute bronchitis followed by acute sinusitis). As long-time readers know, I’m fully up-to-date on all available respiratory vaccinations. Yet, I still got extremely sick.
Here’s my public service message: please keep testing and #maskup #covidisnotover This awful virus remains life-threatening to many, particularly those with chronic conditions and the immunocompromised. Testing and masking can help prevent transmission and the spread of new variants.
Please light a few candles for me. I can use all the good wishes I can find. Thank you…
