2020-10-07It was the week before spring break and I was gearing up for a three day cruise with friends. I want to preface this by saying I am a teacher and this spring break was much needed after a rough semester. Anyways! The pandemic had started but it was only in China and Italy. We didn’t really know how rapidly it would spread. In past outbreaks of viruses they usually were contained in a few areas and didn’t rapidly spread. It felt like when we got on the boat it was in Europe and when we got off three days later it was in the US. There was over 100 friends there on the boat and I know a total of 70 of us got sick. Everyone was mostly fine and got over it in a couple of days. I was sick for three weeks. All the symptoms except I couldn’t breathe and that was the absolute worst. I don’t have great lungs anyways- I can thank multiple rounds of bronchitis for that. Anyway- there was days when I struggled to breathe. If I didn’t have certain medications to help, I think it would have been worse. Not deadly, but incredibly shallowed breathing. However, a month went by and then I started feeling great. I had residual burning in my lungs from when I was trying to heal and it took my body awhile to get back to where it was. A few short weeks after I was better, I noticed my body was having a really hard time doing anything without feeling I was having a heart attack. I got my blood work done and realized that my thyroid, vitamin D levels, hormones, and vitamin B levels were almost none existent. It’s been months now but after regulating them- I have never felt better. There were news reports that came out recently that attested people’s vitamin d levels that were low had stronger cases of Covid-19. After a lot of studying, I am a believer that if our bodies aren’t well, we can’t fight off viruses and bacteria’s as well as we think we should be able too. Our thyroid is the stabler for everything that functions in our bodies. My immune system was shot when I got covid and I believe whole heartedly that my body couldn’t fight it because it didn’t have the strength too. It is so important that we take a hard look at our health and recognize we can’t be reliant on pills and medicines if we as a people aren’t healthy.
