She continued: ‘I’m sharing this because I want to iterate to anyone who still may not be taking covid seriously, please please please f**king do. Covid sucks. It just really sucks. I pride myself on staying healthy, I always wore a mask, social distanced, and took all the necessary precautions and I still got VERY sick.’ 

Despite enduring severe symptoms and exhaustion, she reminded her more than 2.6 million followers that she is ‘one of the lucky ones.’ 

‘I’m young, healthy, and diligent about my health and this virus still knocked me the f**ck down and continues to do so. Even trying to just write this out is proving to be exhausting,’ she emphasized.
