My Routine as a Covid19 Patient

That’s me this morning–I have scheduled my daily routine to include about 1-1.5 hrs of myself being under the morning sun.

As they say, Vitamin D helps Covid19 patients bounce back sooner. You may say 15-20 minutes under the sun should be enough but I also take this time to let my room be cleaned while I’m outside having my natural Vitamin-D boost.

This is also the reason why sometimes I do bring an e-book with me to read while waiting for my room to get tidied up.

Since I have mild symptoms, the ONLY thing that can be bothersome is my occassional migraine and myalgia, to which I still get up to this day (it’s my Day 5 today). Normally, my day starts very normal–my mood, my energy level, my oxygen level are all okay. Lately, my sleeping pattern has come back to normal as well.

However, as the day progresses, I would have bouts of migraine and myalgia. Just like now, as of writing this blog, my right upper arm is starting to ache… and it’s 3.30 in the afternoon. And when that happens, I just put on some Salonpas patches to soothe the muscle aches.

I read somewhere that it’s good to keep a “Covid Diary” where one can detail all the symptoms experienced per day. Luckily, I haven’t lost my sense of smell nor my sense of taste.

I stay mostly on the bed so here are my “work essentials” or everything I need in order to for me get things done even if I’m so called bedridden: my bed version PC, my Covid Diary, and my ebook reader.

I’ve also been taking more fruits rich in Vitamin C just to help boost my immune system and help support my healing.

At least once a day, I make sure to zap up my washroom with UV-C. This is just for extra precaution for our househelp. I wanted to make sure I’m not asking them to step into some sort of a bio-danger zone whenever I’m asking them to clean up my room.

Usually, I’d run the UV Care lamp either at night or early in the morning, before the sunrise. That’s 30minutes each run. My bedroom is pretty much well ventilated for the most of 24hrs so I don’t see the need to UV-C my entire bedroom.

Finally, let me take you for a peek on my bedside table:

Yep, my COVID essentials: my alcohol spray, kitchen towels, my RapidTest results, nasal saline spray, diffuser for my 1,8 Cineole-rich oils, roller blends for my migraine and breathing, lipbalm to soothe dryness, menthol stick for my migraine, pulse oxymeter, and my contactless thermometer.

I keep everything there for easy reach and convenience.

On my next post, I’ll be sharing my Covid Protocol. Ciao!
