My sister had it in mid November and it was strange because she had just been tested for a work thing and it had come back negative. Then about a week later she started feeling under the weather and had a horrible cough. She isolated at home and did a home test which of course came back positive! It took her a few weeks to be back on her feet, but still today she's dealing with the after effects.

My boyfriend got it first in September and then I got it from him. We live together so it was inevitable.

@mamalove58 I had it in October and now I have lung damage too. Did they give you anything to help your breathing afterwards? I didn't have asthma or anything before but they gave me an inhaler to use when my breathing is bad that looks like the one my niece uses for her asthma.
