I experience breathlessness from even mild exertion. I used
to run marathons; now I can’t walk across a room or up a
flight of stairs without getting winded. I can’t go around
the block for fresh air unless my husband pushes me in a
wheelchair. When I shower, I can’t stand the entire time; I
take breaks from standing to sit down on a plastic stool I
have placed inside my bathtub.
Being on the ventilator for almost a week damaged my vocal
cords, and now my voice is extremely hoarse. My speech
pathologist expressed optimism that the damage is not
permanent. Only time will tell.
