Update: passed my modified barium swallow test today So now I can eat what I want (pizza ) and drink what I want (coke zero). Also I walked around the PT gym a few times and climbed some small steps all the while my PT, secretly turned down my oxygen. This is the first day I've really walked btw. I am determined as hell to get out of here and get back to some sort of normalcy. I would not be able to do any of this if I didn't have the help of my hero and boyfriend @dj_jwarren whom I haven't seen since March 17. Hoping to get out of here very soon Where I'll continue physical therapy at home. This disease is no joke people. if you think you're too young to get it,think again. Thank all of you for your kind words and support, I can only get through so much without getting emotional to have a good update in a few days. #stayhome #covid_19 #keepyourdistance
Before his illness, Mike was a well-trained muscular man who weighed 95 kilos. He trained six to seven times a week in a gym. In connection with the disease, he was, according to Buzz Feed News so weak that he could not even lift his cell phone.
- It was frustrating that I was so weak. I also could not write text on the mobile or computer, because my hands shook too much, says Mike, who, during his illness lost his sense of time.
- Since the disease was over, I thought that there was only gone a week, although that was the end of the six weeks.
at Least 38 persons, who had participated in the winter party in Miami, was affected by the corona virus. Three of them died.

I wanted to show everyone how badly being sedated for 6 weeks on a ventilator or intubated can be. Amongst other things, covid19 reduced my lung capacity with pneumonia. Over the 8 weeks I've been away from family and friends Getting stronger everyday and working to increase my lung capacity. I'll get back to where I was in healthier ways this time....maybe even do cardio . #covid19 #caronavirus #recovery #godblessmynurses
