Recovery interview with Positively Covid
The tables were turned yet again for me as I became the interviewee for the lovely Amy at Positively Covid about my Long Covid recovery.
I interviewed Amy a while back about her own recovery story, so it was lovely to let her return the favour, as well as to spend ages just catching up on life! You can hear the original interview here
Long Covid Breathing
As I've detailed in several of the episodes, breathing was the first thing - and one of the most important - that I found to help me on my Long Covid recovery journey.
I've joined together with Vikki Jones to bring you Breathing for Long Covid - courses specifically designed for people with Long Covid. We have taken the trial & error out of the equation and will teach you only the things that are appropriate for you - and how to know which ones to do, when & for how long.

The tables were turned and I was put on the other side of the microphone as Lorna interviewed me about my recovery for her channel recently.
Lorna and I first connected a few years ago, and you can see me put her through her paces in this episode if you'd like to know more about her story with PoTS.
It was lovely to reconnect - thanks Lorna!
