Actress Genelia Deshmukh, who was diagnosed with the viral infection and now recovering, recently detailed how emotionally turbulent the 21 days of self-isolation were for her, away from her family. The actress and mother of two was tested positive around three weeks back. Since she was asymptomatic, she was asked to self-isolate and made a recovery. However, doing it all alone, away from her family was the toughest part of the disease.
Taking to Instagram, Genelia detailed the ordeals she faced in the past weeks, asking everyone to be safe. “As much as I count my blessings that my battle with this disease has been much easier but at the same time I must admit that these 21 days in isolation have been the most challenging for me to deal with. No amount of Facetime and digital immersion can kill the evil of loneliness. I am happy to be back with my family and loved ones. Surround yourselves with love that’s true strength and it’s all one needs. Test early, eat healthy, stay fit- the only way to fight this monster.”
