What Does A Typical Day Look Like For You Living With COVID-19?

I start the day with a dog walk/stroll in the forest. Most of my mornings are filled with the various rehab exercises I was given. Sometimes this includes an aquaexercise session, but the rest is mental rehab that includes word and number puzzles, Lumosity and something creative which is currently oil painting. I have breaks between them because my cognitive endurance is still a problem. In the afternoon I do much less but will do some Duolingo and in the late evening another dog walk.
I don't cook meals as it takes too long for me to follow recipes so our meals are purchased from a local caterer.
I don't drive much. Only going to shops within 5km or to doctor appointments within 10km, for the rest I get lifts.

Covid and my RA is debilitating, I feel the worse thing is to stay on the bed to long, I try to go for walks because it helps with my circulation and my lungs it becomes difficult but I have learnt it walk where i can see my neighbors and when i am tired I stand and chat to them until I get my breath back and pain subsides. I do a lot of prayers while walking asking God to help me make it back home. This too shall Pass. Doloris

I went through physical therapy over 2 months to relearn to walk after several months being down with Covid. I also do water aerobics or ride a stationary bike it’s a challenge to regain Strenth and stamina at age 65
