It is a privilege to have a  guest join me on the podcast; Oonagh Cousins is a professional athlete living with Long Covid. Oonagh made the difficult decision during Christmas 2022 to retire from her rowing career and from her place on the British rowing team. 
Oonagh talks openly with me about her journey with Long Covid, the impact of her symptoms and trying to rehab with her old club ULBC before rejoining the British rowing team in September 2020.
We talk about the sterotypes of Long Covid and the difference in Oonagh's experience, due to her being an athlete. Oonagh talks openly about her Long Covid journey, and her loss and the experience of loss everyone has in different ways with Long Covid. 
Oonagh talks about her return to exercise following a year and a half of rest and recovery, Oonagh explained her return to exercise was not graded exercise and she worked with a physiologist to workout what was possible. Unfortunately Oonagh was then diagnosed with Dysautonomia and eventually she experienced a relapse. 
We talk about Oonagh's decision to leave her rowing career and her thoughts for the future among much more. I thank Oonagh for joining me on the podcast and hope you enjoy this episode, as always take care.
