Ratih Ibrahim, MM, Clinical Psychologist, CEO & Founder Personal Growth and Friends of the Serviam Vaccination Center, stated that the best key to overcoming the symptoms and impacts of Long Covid-19 is to maintain mental health. This becomes important for those who experience these symptoms, because the impact of prolonged medical complications can reduce mental health.
A study published by The Lancet in April 2021 stated that a third of COVID-19 survivors had been diagnosed with neurological or psychological symptoms, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and psychosis, within 6 months of contracting COVID-19. Therefore, positive thinking becomes important for survivors.
“Mental health needs to be considered if someone experiences Long COVID-19, especially because they will feel frustrated because the symptoms of the disease are still felt even though they have been declared cured. On the way to recovering from Long COVID-19, patients must understand that this is a process. There will be days when the symptoms are more severe than other days. In conditions like this, a support system from family and friends can help. In addition, by creating a good routine and staying active, you can trigger endorphins and also increase mood, said Ratih Ibrahim.
