“I thought I was turning a corner a couple days ago, but not so much,” she added. “I have very little energy.”
Sadler, who is on day 14, said that while her symptoms were worse early on — fever, congestion, sore throat, loss of taste and smell — she is still extremely fatigued and “lethargic.”
The television personality caught the virus from her 20-year-old son, experiencing symptoms about four days later.
“It was definitely shocking,” she admitted, “My son is unvaccinated and I was taking care of him, like any mother would. I was wearing my mask and I was careful, but apparently not careful enough.”
Sadler admitted to “walking around with this false sense of security” after she was vaccinated in May.
“We know the vaccine is not foolproof by any means, but I think a lot of us watching were like me … ‘I got the vaccine, I’m good.’ But I wasn’t,” she said. “I then got quite sick and I’ve been home ever since.”
The podcast host doesn’t want the fact she contracted COVID-19 to discourage people from getting vaccinated.
