From August 6th through August 20th, I am hosting a Photography For a Cause event called #PPE4PE where 100% of print profits will be donated to the non-profit, DonorsChoose, for PPE projects requested by teachers. They need our help to keep their students and themselves protected as much as possible during this global pandemic. Our goal is to raise $1,000 to fully fund as many projects as possible. Please help me, help our educators, by purchasing my landscape/animals photographs or by donating directly to Donors Choose!
Regardless of your politics, schools are opening for face to face learning all across the country. I want to help as many teachers, administrators and students be as protected as possible. Due to my own personal experience, I hope no teacher, administrator, faculty, staff, etc have to go through it. So if you’re working in education and need PPE, please create a project on Donors Choose and let me know so I can hopefully fund it through Photography For a Cause!
My Covid-19 Personal Experience
I had COVID-19. Thankfully, it was a milder form of it and I didn’t need hospitalization. That being said, it kicked my ass. Ridiculously lethargic. Simultaneously sweating and cold. Intermittent fever. Pounding headache. Body aches. Loss of smell (which is the strangest symptom!). I feel like I’m fairly healthy without any pre-existing conditions and I struggled mightily. 4+ weeks after my symptoms started, I’m feeling close to 100%.
Brisa was infected at work. We didn’t quarantine Brisa from P or me. It was difficult because we have a 3 year old, plus, initially, we didn’t know if she had it. Brisa was tested on a Saturday and received her results the following Thursday. My similar symptoms started exactly one week after her symptoms began. Once I got sick, we didn’t feel like it was necessary nor worth the risk of exposing others to get me tested because Brisa already tested positive. Honestly, I thought I was asymptomatic/immune because I felt fine for so long after she got sick.
In my first week of symptoms, I was bedridden and I lost 8 pounds. Days 8-14, I was functional, but had zero energy. Days 14-21, I got better everyday, but still needed naps to get through the day (I never nap, normally). Days 21-28, I finally started feeling like myself again! 4+ weeks later, Brisa and I still randomly get flareups of our covid symptoms (cough, sore throat, headaches, fatigue, etc), but they only last for a few hours. The only medicine we took was tylenol and we drank a TON of fluids.
We never quarantined P. He was kissing/hugging us and sharing our food/drinks the entire time. He never showed any symptoms (or lack of energy for that matter). It wasn’t an option for us to have someone watch him while we recovered because we didn’t want to expose anyone else. He’s been totally healthy the entire time, little humans are amazing.
