A family friend who had spent years researching how to air condition their home and who is now an experienced home inspector for a major corporation, wrote me this week about how a few air conditioners didn’t do enough to help him with the dizziness that has plagued him since he moved to New York from New Zealand.
“I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a bit annoying,” he wrote.
“We live in the US, and our home is air conditioned.
It’s always been the case, but it’s never been easy.”
I’ll admit that it took some work to get through the first couple of days of the cold snap.
After spending a night in bed, I woke up early to get my daily dose of CO2, and the next day I was out the door with a small bag of air.
I wasn’t even fully air conditioned at the time.
The only way I could get the air to flow properly was by going outside to get some fresh air.
When I woke in the middle of the night and was able to get out of bed, it was clear to me that I had lost my ability to breathe.
It was clear that I’d probably be in a lot of trouble the next morning.
I was in a real state of anxiety.
After a couple of weeks, I started seeing doctors about my condition.
In some cases, they diagnosed me with a mild form of COVID-19.
I had no symptoms.
In others, I had severe symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and loss of coordination.
The diagnosis was usually a combination of a lot more COVIDs than I had, and my symptoms started coming back at the worst possible time.
I started going through a really rough patch.
After months of research, I finally found a doctor who could help me get through it.
It wasn’t long before I was able, after a week of treatment, to leave my house and walk outside for a few hours.
It took me a while to recover.
The symptoms would only get worse as the cold started to creep in, but they gradually eased off after a few weeks.
I can’t even tell you how hard I fought to get over it.
I’m a very stubborn person, so I never let this get to me.
The COVID epidemic has been a huge burden for many of my friends and family.
Some of my closest friends have even been forced to leave their homes for fear of contracting COVID in the future.
It has been the most difficult thing that I’ve ever had to deal with, but I’m fortunate to have a loving family and friends that have shown me the most support.
The good news is that I’ll be able to recover and live a much more normal life, and I will be able finally go to sleep peacefully again.
