Lena, 34, gives an extensive and detailed account of her fight against the coronavirus under the heading “My Covid Story”. “It started with painful joints, after which the pain was accompanied by crushing fatigue. Then the fever came. Suddenly my body rebelled, ”the actress writes.
Lena says that she had serious complaints for about three weeks and spent that time in complete isolation. “The nerves in my feet were burning and my muscles wouldn’t do their job. My hands were numb. I couldn’t tolerate loud noises. I couldn’t sleep, but I couldn’t wake up either. I lost my sense of taste and smell, ”Lena sums up.
The Girls star says she felt “a machine” from which all the wires had been pulled out and then put back in the wrong place. Lena, who does not tell how she contracted corona, wanted to tell her story because she sees that many people underestimate the virus. “Taking the right measures can prevent a lot of pain.”
