"This was me on April 2nd after being sick 2 weeks. I've never been that kind of sick."
Alyssa Milano just shared this photo on Instagram along with all the horrible symptoms she had earlier this year."Everything hurt. Loss of smell. I felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn't breathe. I couldn't keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible. I basically had every Covid symptom."
The hardest part for her was she actually DID take a Covid test- two of them- and tested negative. Then she took an antibodies test (the finger prick test) and tested negative for THAT! After having lingering symptoms since then, she decided to take another antibodies test via blood draw- and was POSITIVE for that. She said, "I want you to know- this isn't a hoax. Please do take care of yourselves. Please your hands, wear a mask, and social distance. I don't want anyone to feel the way I felt. Be well- I love you all (well, maybe not the trolls. Just the kind people.)
I'm curious- are you someone who felt like they already had it? Have you tested negative but you truly felt you were positive? I know quite a few people in this position. Let me know your experience! Hope you are safe and healthy.
