Staying positive

Standard

Being positive is what I am,

unfortunately the virus thought the same.

I tested positive for the virus after I fell ill starting with a massive headache.

Fever came second and then I started the cough.

Even though I had been extremely careful, never went out, had all shopping on line delivered, only walked to work and back, wearing masks, washing hands, keeping my distance always.

Still I got it, it seems to be so easy to get infected.

My isolation period is over now and I am feeling better.

I am lucky and I am super grateful that I could stay home and deal with all symptoms myself and concentrate on getting better.

Tiredness/ feeling exhausted and losing the sense of taste and concentration is what is left.

It does zap the life out of you and it will take time to get back to normal.

I can’t concentrate on a good book, but rather sleep. I sleep more than ever.

 

Eating is a chore as everything tastes rubbish.

Even chocolate isn’t appealing.

I am a fighter and I will conquer this too!

– for the sake of chocolate 🙂

 

 

The NHS has been amazing I can only give them praise.

I ordered the test online, it was delivered the next day , done and posted back.

The result came via email the day after.

The NHS sent me texts with clear instructions of isolation dates continuously.

They kept phoning throughout my isolation period to check how I am doing and to give advice on questions I have.

 

Thank you NHS for helping me through this difficult period.

I urge everyone to be extremely careful.

Wash hands, stay away from people and stay safe.

Keep the virtual love and hugs going – 

they are more needed than ever.
