Aydin continued, while explaining that her “days haven’t been so bad, aside from a lot of fatigue and sleeping. At night is when it’s the worst for me because of the mix of sweating and chills. I’m taking my vitamins and drinking hot liquids. We’ll all get through this. #staypositive #stayinside #covid19.”

Near the end of the clip, the reality star shared that she was feeling better and things are going in “the right direction.” She also promised to keep her followers “posted on how she was feeling.”
