Owchie. With it Feelings of fear , shame and guilt swirling through you , who could you have gotten it from and who could you have infected…Terrifying. Luckily the rest of my family and bubble were negative.”

While the Lord of the Rings star was able to make a full recovery after 14 days, she says COVID-19 took an emotional and physical toll on her health.

“There are so many strange elements to this sickness. It effects everyone so completely differently. I was so lucky and had corona light🍺 as my momma @realbebebuell called it but It floored me for 10 days in my bed. There is the physical aspects but also emotional and psychological ones too.”

She continues: “It F’s with your body and mind equally. Everyday different. Being isolated in a room alone for 10 days is trippy to say the least. Waking up to news of our capital being under attack. Was it real or the twilight zone? Ohhh no it was real!!! 😱 the first days of 2021 have been scary for everyone in the world. The unknown so great.”

“I missed My babies beyond but they visited my window and called up to me and I watch them play outside. Such a gift. They sent little messages and drawings under my door. Reminders of what’s on the other side. What to get better for. I am so grateful to be through it and spent my days alone praying and beaming love to all who are effected and suffering from this.”

Liv finished the post giving a shout-out to the healthcare workers and sending well-wishes to all those currently battling COVID-19.

“Those who are working tirelessly to protect and care for others. Thank you. We are all connected through this experience. I am Humbled and filled with gratitude . to be well , a gift and beaming love and light to all those who have left this world because of this virus and those who are suffering . Sending love and imaginary universal hugs to all.”
