“Yesterday I was given the results that I am positive for COVID-19. I wanted to tell you all about my journey getting here in an effort to bring awareness to the severity of what’s happening in the world…”
“12 days ago, early morning of March 6th, I started feeling like I was hit by a bus. I couldn’t move out of my bed for days and started to run a fever. I was seen by a doctor at my house who told me I am positive for the regular flu and there’s no way I could have COVID-19 as I haven’t left the country and all I do is go to the studio and go straight home. I told all my friends I had been working with and anyone close to me that I’m laid out with the flu and quarantined myself… None of them even had a sniffle…
I was put on Tamiflu and constant Tylenol to fight the fever… But the chills, sweats, and fevers did not stop. I started to become delusional and then began the dry cough… I immediately rushed to the emergency room and begged to be tested for COVID-19 as this ‘flu’ was not subsiding.”
“I was turned down for the test because of federal regulations. I begged and pleaded to be evaluated and finally was given a chest x-ray… The results of which were Viral Pneumonia… But still… No Test. A private doctor was finally able to test me himself and yesterday afternoon it came back Positive for COVID-19…
…I can’t stress this enough…This is not a joke. Stay inside, stay sanitized. Please stop everything and take care of yourselves And the people you love around you until we are all through this.”
