I am finding my anxiety about Covid is impacting the quality of my life. I have periods of generalized anxiety where EVERYTHING scares me: from Global Warming to the drought in the western states to my husband dying and leaving me alone. After much thought, I think it all stems from the onset of Covid, right about the time I had my kidney transplant. I never experienced anxiety before. I've done everything possible to prevent exposure and/or infection: masks, vaccinations, boosters and 2 doses of Evusheld, but my anxiety is getting worse and I avoid leaving the house! My husband and I are both retired so we don’t need to go anywhere, but it’s starting to get to me.
Has anyone had Covid while immuno-suppressed? How bad was it? I had a hard time post-transplant and I think I have PTSD from the whole experience. Being sick and hospitalized scares me to death, but I think I’m possibly over-fearful? I would welcome any advice, especially from those that have actually had Covid.
Thank you all.
good morning. I am 49 year old female and got Covid 4 months post transplant. I received original vaccination and two boosters prior. My symptoms were very minor. A little sneezing and cough for a couple of days with mild headaches. But everyone is different as you know. I understand you concern about being around others. So continue to protect yourself. But it is a good idea to get some fresh air and go outside for your mental health. This can be done without being around people.
Thank you, Pickleball. I really appreciate your answer and the time you took to respond. I’m so glad to hear that Covid wasn’t bad for you.
