Are any of you concerned about regaining stamina post-COVID? I know we’re not out of the woods yet, but I’m worried that I’ve been home for she long that I’ll really struggle with becoming active again.
My stamina has dropped significantly over the last year which has been worrying me greatly. I typically lay on the couch most of the day, and when the pandemic first started, I made the mistake of not going in my wheelchair. Now I can’t sit up for more than 45 minutes within depleting all of my energy. It sucks. But a couple of months ago I could only sit up for 15 minutes, so I’m improving slowly but surely. I pray I’ll be able to regain my stamina but either way… I have a long road ahead.
Glad your energy level is coming back! Unfortunately I am stuck in my chair all day long from afternoon until about 11 p.m. at night when the caregivers come. So I’m used to being in my chair all day until night time. My lack of energy issue is more a problem with waking up LOL. I could sleep a solid 7 or 8 hours but when somebody comes in to wake me up I feel like I could sleep for another 8 hours. Hoping the medication will help with this! 🤞🏻
