The 23-year-old described the symptoms she noticed at the beginning of the coronavirus infection. She said she never wanted to go through something like that again.

The body was so weakened by the virus that Pisarek was unable to perform the simplest activities.

“It started normally with a common cold, then I lost my sense of smell, taste, and let me tell you, after that it really started to break me down."

"For a week I couldn't even pick up my phone because I was so tired, I had no strength, I was so lethargic," the model added.

At some point, Pisarek was sure that her condition was improving, she woke up feeling much better and said she could return to her duties, remote work.

Karolina Pisarek“And then such a prank that my condition did not improve at all. On the contrary. It was even worse. I started having severe depression. I felt hopeless. I have never felt anything like this in my life,” she confided.

When breathing problems appeared, Pisarek got scared and called an ambulance. She constantly monitored her condition, checked the parameters.

"Then I started choking. I was choking, I didn't know what was going on. It felt like a lot of needles were sticking through my nose.

"One moment I couldn't breathe through my nose, and when I tried through my mouth, it felt like my lungs were crushing."

"Like someone put weights on my chest. Then I checked the pulse oximeter as usual and it was not the best, so I called the ambulance," she reported.

Before help could reach her, the model managed to calm down a bit. With her confession, Pisarek wants to warn everyone to take care of their health and be careful.

“I'm telling you this story so you'll really pay attention. I know a lot of people say young people can get over COVID easily, but I am the best example that they don't." Since I, as a young person, went through COVID in such a way...", she confessed.
