My Journey after Covid-19

Recently I caught with a viral infection and my upper and lower limbs stopped feeling. It was really a tough time. I had to be shifted between home and hospital. I am in recovery mode now.

I want to write about the pain a patient goes through and how it affects his/her psyche.
Of course, it may or may not be my next book, but I will write on that for sure.
Now I am recovering I was totally based on the kindness of others. Every nurse, doctor and physiotherapist , my mom , my husband, my family makers, my staff at home , people helping pulling me on wheel-chair that helped me did so with humility and care making sure I was treated with respect and kindness.
Everyone taking care of my like a small kid.
When you are giving up on life, little moments of kindness – like a cup of coffee or green tea being made for you and just someone listening to what you have to say can change your day for the better.

My hope was not lost and even if I was at my lowest, life could get better and that there is a reason to live .
That moment will stay with me forever. While fighting with Corona , the side effects of heavy medications, the loss of mobilty in my limbs , and an unexpected things that happend I began to make the most of his time by writing down my thoughts into my mobile notes.
So yes now I am on the recovery track , settled back at my home with my kids.
Life is getting back on track.
I am sure with god’s grace and love of my family soon I’ll pick up my paint brush , paint my thoughts, I would sing -record my voice , I would write the poems , I will cook for my family and I will be as cheerful as I can.
Still some days I feel low , but Yes we are god lovers and with good diet, exercises, positivity and blessings of my family things are and will get better.

the pandemic, the infection and social isolation has affected me mentally as –

Gradually fighting with this disease was becoming very difficult
Brain fogging every time.
I was Feeling zapped every second.
My brain had stopped working at all .
I was paused, I couldn’t take decisions on my own.
Mentally my clock of heart wanted to stop
Because I was tired of the whole process, I was tired of the hospital beds and I didn’t want to have more pains and more worst days I was going thru.

the pandemic, the infection and social isolation has affected me emotionally as –

I’ve lived every moment ..being pampered by my husband to singing doing voice overs and writing
Memories that can never ever fade.
If I talk emotionally , I was over flooded with negative vibes and overthinking.
I could feel it was the end of my life and I would never be able to walk around and all my hope was lost , I was emotionally drained.
Every around me asking me to pray asking me to repeat that –
I will walk soon , I’m healthy and I’m happy

I wanted to meet my kids , my family and my loved ones.
I wanted to have food on my own , I wanted my fingers to touch my face , my mobile screens, I wanted to make hairs of my daughter.

But every second my moral was deteriorating
It was the love and prayers of my family I have revived and I’m able to write and answer these questions.

But even after all of this Akanksha is staying strong working on her ambitions,
Chasing her dreams and she wants to make her family , her father who was very close to her proud.

After my infection ,all my test reports were fine I have been to the top hospitals of the country and even today after India being a great health centre , my disease is un- researched and it’s a new issue and topic to be researched.

A small poetry by Akanksha Agarwal
During the time she was on the bed rest

“My legs on the white bed sheet
Were like dead meat

They wanted to move like a machine
But even the gods couldn’t help

I was shattered like a broken glass
My moral was destroyed like bricks cut into pieces

My soul was wandering ,to be free ,
like slave in a dungeon
But their were silver chains tied all over my flesh

Life seemed like a statue
Everything had become still like a mannequin

Only his sketch in my eyes
managed me to be silent
after every roaring wave”

Akanksha Agarwal , a headstrong lady , did not give up on her dream and followed it passionately. She is an inspiration to all the women and girls who dare to dream big.

It’s truly said:
“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.”
