Sssssh!! Don’t let Coronavirus know but I think I’ve turned a corner!!
I have an horrendous cough and I’m scared to go outside for fear of being frowned upon by strangers if I happen to cough and also for fear of the unknown. What if I’m still contagious to others outside of my family? What if we don’t know everything about this virus like I suspect?
I have a changing between numbness and pins and needles in my feet and hands, terrible heartburn and mild pain in my windpipe and lungs. But I am streets ahead today and I hope this lasts; I’m sure it will now. Laughter today is helping; I’m sure of it!!
The first email I was met with at work this morning was a take on Good Morning Vietnam and some music videos and, I have to say, it really set the tone for the rest of the day!! Superb work!! Superb!! I have been singing all day … probably a good job I’ve been isolating!!
And another chat with a colleague who has been reading my blog whilst self isolating having succumbed to COVID-19 … seems I have helped. However small it has been, I have succeeded with what this blog was meant to achieve!! Some laughter!!
For those of you suffering from the virus at whatever stage you may be at, for those worried about what is to come, those just getting through each day, those struggling being along – just for everyone …
… Just Keep Swimming! You will get through this; whatever this is. You will. Take each day as it comes. Cry! Laugh! Dance! Sing! Do whatever makes you happy and gets you through! And keep talking!
Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming xx
You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.Elizabeth Taylor
