Dr. Stein's interview on the CBC Alberta provincial late news on April 18, 2021


- 10 to 30% of people who contract COVID 19 don't recover fully as expected. These lingering symptoms are referred to as "long  haul" or "Post-COVID".
- The symptoms of Post-COVID include severe fatigue, post exertional malaise, unrefreshing sleep, brain fog and unstable blood pressure - very similar to symptoms of ME/CFS.
- Number one take home message if you have long haul COVID is to PACE. This means living within your energy bank account. Try to save a bit of energy every day so the body can use it to heal.
- We hope this sensible self-management will help people with long haul COVID recover.

 

What people say about participating in Dr. Stein’s groups

“Learning about what is happening in my body, and how I can manage my symptoms more effectively, has brought me a sense of power and hope towards my illness. Being surrounded by others on a similar journey has increased my hope and allowed me to start dreaming again.”

“Putting in practice some of the ways we learned with her to make life more enjoyable, saved me from burning out many times and above all, helped me to accept and respect my new limits so that life could once again be enjoyed not just by me, but by my family also!”

“Dr Stein is extremely well read, knowledgeable, skilled, and empathic. Both the group content and stories of other group members assisted me in gaining better influence over the things I could reasonably change.”
