    Hi Starr,

    Yes, I had this symptom for almost 18 months, it does get better, but that feeling is one of the last to go.

    I know this virus is scary, I think because it is so different from anything anyone has had before. It is a tough virus, but it will go away eventually.

    This forum is a great source of support, I remember feeling the same way you do, like I would never get my life back and Craig and others here were such a great source of support, much better than the doctors who say you will be better in six weeks.

    Hey Starr,

    I hope so much that your legs begin to feel stronger very soon, it's only understandable that you would be so worried about that and concerned. It's so frightening when something like this is going on and you don't know what to do to help, I've been like that with my hips and legs lately too, not so much in the weakness sense but just pain / sciatic type symptoms, it's so horrible and I really do empathise.

    I definitely believe that you WILL be okay Starr. I have faith in that and believe that God has got you firmly held through this trial and will see you through it safely. It's so hard when it goes on so long and we don't understand, I truly empathise with this, God is good though and His timing is perfect, praying that He will reassure you today that everything is going to be okay.
