When You Know You’re Ill But Don’t Know Why

today is ideal for those who wish to make it so

to see a fine sunrise would make my day

I know I’m poorly, but I don’t really know why.  Here in England we can only have an on-line of telephone doctor’s appointment, but we have a National Health Service help line, and they play it safe, call them and the chances are they will say you most likely have the coronavirus….. there is no chance of being tested for COVID-19 unless you are a ‘key worker’.

They have told me that I need to self-isolate for another week, which is fine because just going down the 56 steps to the street door is difficult.  Climbing back up again needs to be done in stages because I’m so breathless.

The symptoms I have make no sense, neither do the antibiotics I’ve been given ~ a placebo perhaps.  I believe that the vitamin supplements are doing me more good; A, B, C, D, E, magnesium and zinc, iron, and cod liver oil.  Being isolated and alone is most likely what is wrong with me.  Solitary confinement is a cruel and unusual punishment, and I’ve had about 53 days of that.

I really, really, desperately want to be fit and well again.

Some say that illness is all in the mind.  And that you are just as healthy as you want to be.  All I know is that I’ve had some very bad days since my birthday on March 23rd.

  4. Jack, I’m concerned about the breathing difficulty. (Which has nothing to do with being alone and is not all in your mind.) I would call the NHS again and let them know your symptoms have been continuing since the end of March. Sending healing energy! Take care!
