I got sick March 6, 2020, and for months, I thought I was alone in not getting better. I was surprised to find two others like me. We started a Facebook group that now has over 13,000 members — horrifically too many. I lost my home in July 2020, but the grace of the survivor community has made it possible for me to advocate, at times from a tent, for every single person who has suffered the socioeconomic impact of Long Covid. It’s a bridge that can’t be uncrossed, and we try our hardest to prevent others from joining our ranks, but the profound compassion and support in this group sustains all of us through the impossible.
