As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis has revealed that he recently contracted COVID-19. The frontman says he caught the disease after he recovered from the burns he suffered late last year while trying to use gas to light a bonfire.
Lambesis said the following:
“This year my physical life has been like an analogy for my life as a whole over the past 10 years. There are a lot of famous quotes about resilience or falling and getting back up. What do you think about this one though?…
“A person who falls and gets back up is stronger than a person who never fell.”
I don’t think that’s true of all people, because there is an extremely small percentage of people who have the strength and wisdom to never fall in the first place. However, it is true of me. This year I’ve become the best version of myself so far because I’ve had to get back up from so much.
Can this be the last big one this year though please? 😂 I had just gained back the 20 pounds of muscle I lost from being in the ICU and now I’ve lost another 5 from Covid 🤮
Still keeping my head up and keeping grateful though. The best is still ahead.”
