Actress Lena Dunham (just the mention of her makes me cringe) has a message for Americans, and it's that those "jogging without masks" are exhibiting "carelessness."
The American Horror Story actress said that she had coronavirus in March, and spent three "crushing" weeks with the virus. Now she feels as though she is an activist for social distancing.
“I’ve been reluctant to share this,” Dunham wrote on Instagram, “seeing the carelessness with which so many in the United States are treating social distancing, jogging without masks and parties on Instagram. I got sick with COVID-19 in mid-March. It started with achy joints, which I was unable to distinguish from my usual diagnosis, so I didn’t freak out. But the pain was soon joined by an impossible, crushing fatigue. Then, a fever of 102.”
“Suddenly my body simply… revolted,” she continued.“The nerves in my feet burned and muscles wouldn’t seem to do their job. My hands were numb. I couldn’t tolerate loud noises. I couldn’t sleep but I couldn’t wake up. I lost my sense of taste and smell.”
Dunham added that she had “a hacking cough, like a metronome keeping time” and an “inability to breathe after simple tasks like getting a glass of water."
She rambled on, "Random red rashes. A pounding headache right between my eyes. It felt like I was a complex machine that had been unplugged and then had my wires rerouted into the wrong inputs.”
“This went on for 21 days, days that blended into each other like a rave gone wrong. After a month, I tested negative for COVID-19 — I couldn’t believe how intense the loneliness had been, in addition to the illness," she added, “But my symptoms weren’t gone. I had swollen hands and feet, an unceasing migraine and fatigue that limited my every move. Even as a chronically ill person, I had never felt this way,” Dunham said. “And there are weirder symptoms that I’ll keep to myself. “So — hey, you, in the hat that says FREE MUSTACHE RIDES — put down your cigarette and listen to me!” wrote Dunham as she finished chronicling her experience.
“This isn’t like passing the flu to your coworker,” Dunham concluded. “This is the biggest deal in our country, and in the world right now.”
So because she caught the coronavirus (and apparently has underlying issues and therefore likely had it worse than others) we are supposed to do something dumb like wear a mask (which inhibits oxygen flow) while we jog? HA! No.
