Covid-19 has been a nightmare for so many people all over the world. When I got sick, I thought for sure that I was going to die. I’m young and generally healthy, so I didn’t think that the virus would affect me too badly. boy, was I wrong. For two weeks, I was bedridden with a high fever, severe body aches, and fatigue so bad that even getting out of bed felt like an impossible task.
Thankfully, with the help of my family and friends, I was able to get the rest and care that I needed and eventually started to get better. Once my fever broke and my energy levels started to come back, it was like night and day. Within a week, I felt like my old self again.
While recovering from Covid-19 was tough, it also made me realize how lucky I am. There are so many people who are still suffering from this virus with no end in sight. That’s why I decided to donate my plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood that contains antibodies which can help fight the virus in other people who are still sick.
Donating plasma is a simple and painless process that takes about an hour from start to finish. After completing some paperwork and having a quick physical checkup, a nurse will insert an IV into your arm through which they will draw out a pint of blood. The plasma is then separated from the other blood cells and the rest is returned to your body through the IV.
It really is that easy! And it’s something that anyone who has recovered from Covid-19 can do to help others still fighting the virus.
