I'm a 40 year old woman who has never been sick and tries very hard to stay healthy. After getting COVID-19 I realized that mental and emotional health are just as important. When I was diagnosed with COVID I was under some stress from work and planning a wedding. Some my immune system was already compromised with everything that was going on. Through my recovery I found myself in the hospital for two days with pneumonia due to COVID. As I am still recovering the effects of COVID has truly opened my eyes to so much more and wanting to help find ways to treat and cure it in the lungs. I know my recovery is going to be an ongoing process but I am a fighter and determined to not only get better but educate my community about this virus.
