Covid Chronicles: Medicines and Self-medication

posted on 2022-11-29, 16:24 authored by Sara (Anonymous)

I have had stomach and digestion issues since I was young, but it was never really treated. The last time I took strong pain killers I suffered an allergic reaction. As it was a struggle to visit the doctor before corona already, I felt even more uneasy about trying to get an appointment during the pandemic. I just took some over the counter medicines against pain and for the protection of the stomach. It didn’t do anything though.
