After Saturday’s post, I really wasn’t sure if I wanted to continue with Blogmas posts, I intended to take a day or two and see how I felt. I guess this isn’t a Blogmas post as such, but I wanted to write anyway. After feeling not quite right on Saturday with what appeared to be a bad cold and a light cough (which I assumed was my asthma responding to the cold). Seeing as I was planning to see family, I thought I’d rather be safe than sorry. I’m really glad I was.
My local test site had slots on Sunday, I went over, did my self administered test and went home, hoping I just had a cold. Monday came and went, nothing but I couldn’t taste my drink in the evening, strange. Can you see where this is going yet? Yep. Tuesday morning I woke up to a text I didn’t want. My result was positive for Covid.
Yep I got a Christmas present that wasn’t on my list and was definitely not wanted. I’m now in isolation with Ali. I cried, like many people I was looking forward to Christmas, even if it was going to be different – going to see my sister and parents but now I can’t.
Aside from Christmas I am feeling crappy, I still have a heavy cold and a bit of a cough and now I’ve lost my sense of taste and smell which I’m really hoping comes back soon because food is bland af right now. So, in some ways I am lucky – I know things could be a lot worse and I could be feeling much worse. I’m also grateful I got it checked and didn’t go and potentially infect family members! Mostly I’m sleeping it off and when I’m awake I’m reading.
So, yes a very Merry Christmas I guess!
This will probably be my last post around Christmas, I’m hoping that I can post again before the end of the year but my main goal is just getting better in the next few weeks before I go back to work in January.
Stay safe and Merry Christmas.
