Doctor expected to get COVID-19, but didn’t expect it to change his life

February 18, 2021

Despite taking all the precautions as a health care provider, I knew I would eventually add to the statistics of COVID positive cases, and I did. I have an elderly mother at home, so I isolated myself in the basement and hoped for the best. Still, my wife and daughter soon also tested positive. I did not have a fever, but I felt unusually cold. There was not much fatigue, but a kind if inertia set in; I did not want to read or even check my phone for my messages. There was loss of appetite and the senses of taste and smell, as well as a heightened sensitivity to sugar. But the frightening revelation was shortness of breath just climbing a flight of steps at home.
