General Hospital News: Emma Samms Opens Up About Her Return To Port Charles And Her Long Road Ahead

General Hospital news says that her recovery has sure been a long one and that she’s nowhere near the end yet – but at least she’s back where she belongs, and that’s in front of the cameras again. Of course, we are talking about actress Emma Samms and her road back to Port Charles. As many fans probably already know, the British beauty has been dealing with Long Covid for the past two years. Here’s what she has to say.

General Hospital News: Emma Samms Opens Up About Her Return To Port Charles And Her Long Road Ahead

Emma first contracted COVID-19 back in March 2020 and while the virus did pass  through her body, some of the symptoms had stayed. “It has been a slow learning process of consequences,” she explains. “If I do something of any physical exertion, there will be a price to pay for it. Sometimes the price is just that I get a sore throat. Sometimes it’s just that I feel really tired. Sometimes I get that plus a whole bunch of other symptoms, including not being able to breathe properly and having a really constricted chest. A lot of the time, it feels like there’s an elephant sitting on my chest. It’s just the most uncomfortable feeling, and every now and then I find myself sort of gasping, trying to fill my lungs with enough air.”

That said, Emma added that she’s happy to help educate the public about her illness. However, she added, “I never thought I would find myself as the face of a disabling disease. I’ve always been the strong one in my family — the active one, the person who’s always got at least three or four things on the go.”

Despite her chronic illness, Emma says, “I’ve always considered myself very lucky, through all of this. First of all, it didn’t kill me, and so many people have died from Covid, people my age, who were very fit before. And a lot of people who are going through what I’m going through don’t have a very understanding and dear and supportive and kind partner, which I do, and that’s made all the difference in the world.”
