Read her tweets below;
I survived coronavirus. I spent nearly 2 weeks indoors + in quarantine as my body fought it off. Yesterday, I took my first steps downstairs, headed straight to my garden + took a deep breath Wasn’t gonna share this online but I’ve been encouraged to share hope & good news 1/18
Because a lot of us may not get access to Covid-19 testing kits and calls with NHS 111 to feel scripted, I’ll share my experience. It may help someone. These were my symptoms… 2/18
Day 1: I’d been informed that I was in contact with someone who had been in contact with someone with covid-19. Nothing serious I told myself, but I decided to social distance anyway. Later I found out I’d been in direct contact with a confirmed case 5 days before. 3/18
Day 2: I develop a very dry cough. And a swollen gland I developed 2 days before Day 1 became very prominent. The cough was persistent making speaking for longer than 40 secs hard. I was extremely fatigued. I’m anaemic and well acquainted with tiredness but this was chronic 4/18
Day 3: A good night's sleep did not help. My chest was painfully tight, at first, I blamed work anxiety. I developed a fever (was hot + cold at the same time). I struggled to walk and my breathing became shallow + difficult. The muscles in my neck began to ache. 5/18
Day 4: The scariest day. I woke up feeling like I’d been run over by a truck in my sleep and then thrown off a cliff. The muscles in my face ached. The muscles in the eyes hurt. Every muscle hurt. My persistent cough became extremely painful. Developed a painful migraine. 6/18
Day 5: I slept a lot. Keeping my eyes open was painful and a core. I wore sunglasses to use my phone. The sunlight made my migraine worst. My body ached and my breathing became worst. Coughing didn’t help. I could feel my lungs getting heavier, every breath got shorter. 8/18
