Woman Tests Positive For COVID-19, Describes Experience

Bjonda Haliti shared her experience with having Coronavirus. She details what it felt like as it progressed over a ten day period of time, and it sounds like at this point she's on the mend. The process she went through to actually get tested for Coronavirus, while she displayed the symptoms that doctors said to look out for, sounds like quite the ordeal.

    Text - Bjonda Haliti @baeonda I'm 22 years old and I tested positive for COVID-19. I've been debating on posting, but I want to share my experience especially with those around my age to help bring awareness, and to relieve any stress/anxiety some may have due to the pandemic.

    Text - Bjonda Haliti @baeonda Replying to @baeonda Day 2:I felt a lot of pressure in my head to the point I would have to cough softly to avoid the discomfort. That night, I experienced the chills and had a fever. One main symptom that stood out to me, my eyes physically hurt. They were tender and sore.

    Text - Bjonda Haliti @baeonda Replying to @baeonda The doctor told me I probably just had an infection and prescribed me antibiotics and 800mg of ibuprofen. I made sure to stay extremely hydrated and stocked up on vitamins and probiotics. That night, I still ran a fever.

    Text - Bjonda Haliti @baeonda Replying to @baeonda Day 4: Finally no more fever, but a new symptom showed up: shortness of breath. It was uncomfortable, it felt like I had bricks on my chest. I tried the self diagnose test I read online (hold your breath and count to 10) which I successfully did with no complications.

    Text - Bjonda Haliti @baeonda Replying to @baeonda Day 5: Symptoms: sore throat, cough, shortness of breath. I went to the same doctor and I was very adamant about getting tested. Doctor said my vitals were "unremarkable" but I wasn't going to take no for an answer! I also requested chest X-rays, everything came out normal.

    Text - Bjonda Haliti @baeonda Replying to @baeonda Everyone is asking how I contracted COVID-19. I don't know. But I did go out on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and my cough started on Sunday. I believe I was exposed to it at the bar/club one of those days. That's my guess.

    Text - Bjonda Haliti @baeonda Replying to @baeonda For those asking me what it's like: I have dealt with colds in the past that were worse than this. I rated my pain moderate (4/10) when I went to the doctor. The first 3 days were most difficult.
