let your hopes, not your hurts shape your future
one day I will see sights like this again
It’s not the cough that kills you ~ it just feels like it might.
I still have the cough / difficulty breathing , the headache, and the temperature / sweating, but I am so much better than I was a few days ago. At the beginning of the week I only wanted to be asleep, and my sleep patterns were very disrupted. It isn’t normal to be awake all night, then sleeping most of the day in front of the TV instead. I had no appetite, forgot to take my cold medication and vitamin pills, and could only drink Lucozade, (an energy drink for the sick), mixed 50-50 with water.
Until yesterday the idea of showering, shaving, washing my hair was just an impossibility.
But yesterday I got myself clean, cooked a hot meal, (tomato soup out of a can), and even ate most of it. This morning I made coffee, and made some plans for today.
I don’t think I’ve left the garret since I got sick, which I think was on my birthday, March 23rd, so today I’m going out, as far as the store…..
Recovering from this virus needs to be the same as when I was recovering from pneumonia, pleurisy, and the 5 broken ribs that went along with that.;
- Take it easy
- Get plenty of rest and sleep
- Do something to exercise my mind
- Have a little exercise and get some fresh air
- Eat properly, drink plenty of fluids, take my vitamins
The number of fatalities here in England is still going up, and our Prime Minister is in hospital with COVID-19. It looks as though the current lockdown in England is going to continue for a while yet, maybe to the end of April. So, I have plenty of time to recover properly before I’m tempted to do very much, or go anywhere.
Take it easy everyone, take care, don’t worry, try to be happy.
stay in touch with family and friends
