In was one of the lucky one’s who had Covid in the early part of the pandemic. March 2020 and survived a 2 week period on the ventilator, most of it prone, some of it on pressors. But lived to tell my story. I am a nurse and I continue to struggle with long covid, post icu syndrome. I watch my fellow health care workers struggle daily to fight Covid in our ICU, some of them were my health care heroes so watching them struggle really makes me sad, frustrated, and sometimes angry.
