The Virus that the first case was discovered in South Africa in March 2020 ever since I have living with anxiety to not get infected with the virus because I have an old age mother, who might not be easy for her to recover. During the first lockdown I was so careful practising social distancing, sanitising hands and washing them more often, wearing a mask and I did not stop doing that. Sometime in October 2020 I lost the sense of smell and taste and I knew that I have it because it was the signs of it. I went to a private Doctor and got tested and the results came back positive.
While I knew that I may have Covid 19 I used home remedies, I steamed with vicks vaporub and also with onion, cutted onion in half and put it on top of my pillow while I was sleeping and inhaled it. After two days of doing this I got my sense of smell back and it was the worst thing ever to happen to me because I did not even smell what I was cooking and did not know the taste of food, it was a real struggle. I continued with the steaming and drinked hot water more often and also ate raw onion and then the next day I got to taste food again and I was so happy and I do not want to experience that again.
