Young & healthy folks: I know the media has told you that you need to be safe to protect the high-risk around you from #COVID19 . But please, you must protect *yourself* also. Here's why – a thread:
6 years ago, I was a young, healthy, active person when I got a virus. 1/8
The virus itself wasn’t a severe case. I was never hospitalized from it. 2/8
#postCOVID19 #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis
But it caused long-term impact, progressing to the point of disability a few years later. 3/8
#dysautonomia #MECFS #MCAS
I lost my career, my ability to do any activities — physical or mental — without consequences from fatigue. 4/8
#PostExertionalMalaise #PEM #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis
This is happening to people (including young & healthy folks) after COVID-19. 5/8
#LongHaulers #PostCOVID
Being young or healthy does not protect you from these long-term impacts of COVID-19. 6/8
You do not want post-viral fatigue following COVID-19. Believe me – I’ve had post viral ME/CFS for six years. 7/8
The loss I have experienced from post-viral ME/CFS is incalculable — emotionally, physically, financially. You do not want this to happen to you. 8/8
