Loss of smell. . I felt like a big elephant had sat on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t eat. I lost 4 kg in two weeks. I felt confused. I had a mild fever. And a horrible headache. I practically had every symptom of Covid. At the end of March I did two tests and both were negative. When I started feeling a little better I did the antibody test. Positive “.

This was me on April 2nd after being sick for 2 weeks. I had never been this kind of sick. Everything hurt. Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible. I basically had every Covid symptom. At the very end of march I took two covid19 tests and both were negative. I also took a covid antibody test (the finger prick test) after I was feeling a bit better. NEGATIVE. After living the last 4 months with lingering symptoms like, vertigo, stomach abnormalities, irregular periods, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, zero short term memory, and general malaise, I went and got an antibody test from a blood draw (not the finger prick) from a lab. I am POSITIVE for covid antibodies. I had Covid19. I just want you to be aware that our testing system is flawed and we don’t know the real numbers. I also want you to know, this illness is not a hoax. I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying. I will be donating my plasma with hopes that I might save a life. Please take care of yourselves. Please wash your hands and wear a mask and social distance. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I felt. Be well. I love you all (well, maybe not the trolls. Just the kind people.)❤️

And he invited everyone not to trust the currently imperfect tests on the market and to take the disease and its consequences seriously over time, as he showed in the last shared video, in which whole locks of hair fall out with each brush: “Protect yourself, always clean your hands, wear a mask and keep a safe distance. I would like no one to feel what I did. “
