“It’s not a joke,” the actress, who is vaccinated and boosted, said of the virus in an Instagram post on Monday. “It’s very exhausting, the exhaustion is very particular. I had mono when I was in college and exhaustion hits like this where you can’t be awake, you can try to be awake but all of a sudden you need to sleep.
“It’s not the same as the flu,” she added today. “You don’t hear about ‘long flu’. This is a very different kind of virus… Be careful. Be careful.”

“Something I didn’t anticipate is that I have a new level of anxiety about going out. I was certainly very vigilant and while traveling as safely as possible… Part of me feels guilty for being out. I feel guilty. I feel sad. And I worry again for the world and for our health in the world.
She said that, perhaps due to her stay, she was “super emotional and thoughtful…I was then in my head.”
The special one Flower star, who suffers from asthma and thyroid disease, continued: “The mental health impact of this – especially for those of us who already suffer from anxiety or are prone to anxiety. catastrophic thinking – it’s really scary. And I know it will pass. The intensity will pass.
