The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik has updated fans about her experience with Covid, sharing her symptoms via a series of Instagram videos.

In the candid updates, Bialik discussed how she'd been feeling since testing positive, talking about the mental as well as physical impact of the virus.

She revealed that she is fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and that, despite taking precautions, her diagnosis had left her feeling guilty and nervous about leaving her home.

"Something that I hadn’t kind of anticipated is I have a new level of anxiety about going out," the star said.

"I definitely have been very vigilant and while I happened to be traveling in the safest way that I could. Part of me feels guilty that I went out. I feel guilty. I feel sad. And I’m worried about the world again and our health in the world."

"I had mononucleosis when I was in college and the exhaustion hits like that where you cannot be awake, you can try to be awake but then all of a sudden you need to sleep. I'm feeling a whole bunch of regret that I ever took my mask off outside," she said.

"I'm just putting this out there, I'm feeling a lot of fear. Like, why did I ever go out."
