I'm writing this blog on what feels like a momentous day. I've just finished a weekend shift in the hospital intensive care unit on Valentine’s Day 2021. I feel quite emotional.
That's because I am living with what I and others call long COVID. Some use the term Long COVID-19, and more recently, "post-acute sequaele of SARS-CoV-2 infection," or PASC, to describe what I'm living through. No matter your term of choice, it's the same debilitating condition that seems to grind recovery from acute COVID-19 to a slow crawl.
