COVID hits whole family
hi, it’s me, it’s my family.
All 3 of my kids, my husband, and I. we all had it. Now that we’re all mostly out of the woods I feel ok posting about it. I feel like it will take a while for my husband to heal from it because he has other complicating health issues. I’m still only running at about 75%. I’m working from home and by the time I clock out I am wiped out.
What helped/did not help:
I am fully vaccinated, it hit me hard and I felt awful.
I take vitamins daily including D3, zinc, and multivitamin. I stopped taking them when I first got sick because I felt so awful. I did start taking them again after my visit to the hospital.
My husband and I both got monocolonal antibodies and they did help.
We were taking tylenol and ibuprofen for the fevers, but it didn’t really seem to help much.
On the fever: It was the weirdest fever I’ve ever experienced (and I’ve had many fevers over the course of my life, including being packed in ice from a high fever when I was in 3rd grade). It was a roller coaster. I felt worse when my fever was “mid-range” between 101 and 102.5. I felt delirious when it was above that. I didn’t even realize I was running a fever when it was 100-101.4 by the 3rd day. I would have chills and sweats. It felt worse at night.
I’m willing to answer questions if you have any.
