Tears in the interview about the aftermath of Corona
Ex- “Lindenstrasse” star Christian Kahrmann fell seriously ill with the coronavirus and still suffers from long-term effects today.
Christian Kahrmann (49) fell seriously ill with Corona in March 2021 and had to be put into an artificial coma. In addition, his parents died within a very short time. The actor, who became known as Benny Beimer on “Lindenstrasse”, spoke to Matthias Opdenhövel (51) about his life with Long Covid on “Zervakis & Opdenhövel. Live”.
The physical after-effects of the illness keep Kahrmann busy. According to the actor, there are problems above all with his “running machine”. He suffers from muscle and limb pain. The nerves in the legs also suffered from the infection.
“Broken” by psychological consequences
The psychological effects of the illness were also discussed. The fact that as a sporty person suddenly had to rely on a rollator “broke” it, mentally “put it through the meat grinder”. He still suffers from insomnia today, which alternate with phases of extreme exhaustion.
When Christian Kahrmann woke up from the coma, he found out about the death of his father, who was also suffering from Corona. A little later his mother died of cancer.
Christian Kahrmann did not come to psychotherapy because of his mother’s funeral, which he had to organize. According to Kahrmann, who burst into tears towards the end of the interview, measures against the emotional effects of Long Covid are on the agenda.
