On My Soapbox…

I’m feeling positive that I have Covid or a close relative.

My home tests are all negative, but I have been invaded by alien bodysnatchers.

Never have I ever been this sick.

Symptoms are bizarre, uncontrollable, painful and one is left helpless to fight back…basically lie down and let it torment your body and 4-5 days later, hopefully, resume life.

I have been injected 4 times (2 Moderna vaccines and 2 Boosters), I wash my hands incessantly, I mask all the time, I have not gone to a large gathering since Covid hit, I have traveled, but wear a mask upon leaving home and do not remove until I am in a safe environment, I sanitize the plane seat and area and I never dine indoors.

If I can have a moment to pontificate.

Please wear a mask on planes and indoors, wash your hands and get vaccinated and boosted.

I cannot imagine what this adventure would have been like if I was unvaccinated…better investment than diamonds or designer bags.

Politics should not play a part in staying alive and well.

Covid kills. Surviving this or whatever associated  new fangled virus is quite a rigorous journey.

Be well.

    I am SOOOO sorry to hear your are feeling rotten. Can you try and test with something other than a home test? Wonder if you’d get a positive result? Though you probably have zero interest in even venturing out. Poor you. Glad you weren’t sick for your Mexico trip!

    Sending healing vibes for a speedy recovery! 💜💜

    Feel better! Glad you are home in your own bed. Wonder if you have some new version not showing up in our home test?🤔 Hope you have good books to read, though my boys both had covid brain and couldn’t focus on anything. The younger one got it 3 days after winning election🙁
