Long COVID Fear Advice?
Evening everyone! I was wondering if anyone had any advice on dealing with anxiety regarding long COVID. I am so scared of my family developing long COVID. As someone who lives with chronic fatigue and numerous other symptoms, one of my greatest fears is my family experiences what I experience. My brother and I have both had COVID this past week or so (I’m actually finishing isolation tomorrow morning) and my brother (who finished iso about 3 days ago) has just told me that he is still experiencing shortness of breath and was feeling quite tired today.
I completely understand that it is early days and this is likely very common, but my logical brain isn’t winning over my anxiety at the moment and my anxiety has suddenly spiked to the point I can’t fall asleep! I often experience anxiety such as this - I’ve been told I am ‘highly sensitive’/‘an empath’ who often takes on other peoples emotions/feels strong emotions about things other people are experiencing. I hope that makes sense 😖 ❤️ Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with this fear?? Thank you so much for reading this! I hope you are all staying safe!! ❤️Sending hugs to all of you!
