So I wanted to write this before I go for another nap.
I have been overwhelmed by the support that I have received. I am hoping that I see more people step forward to help those of us in need. It is important that we pull together to pull through.
Remember our grandparents went through worse.
With my brush with the COVID symptoms I am not risking going out for anything other than going to the doctors. Someone somewhere gave me the symptoms and so I am not risking going into crowded shops again. There are still some people who do not watch what they’re doing.
Please look after yourself and your family. It is important that we take care of everyone around us but remember that we have to look after ourselves as well.
Lockdown is driving me a bit coo coo and I am hoping to have some more energy soon 🙂
It is 12:07 when I write this so officially into the next day of quarentine. I am starting to feel better if not a little over tired.
The coughing that started on sunday has calmed down alot and the fever is still yoyoing but it is going in the right direction.
My voice is starting to come back if only for my sanity to be going. I spent 20 minutes last night laughing at the fact that no matter which way you break the word viagra down it still sounds like your saying viagra. I broke it down in two ways Vi ag ra and Via gra. That is the state of my sanity atm
Please everyone take this Lockdown seriously. My cousin who has a defect in her heart shows signs of Covid now if she goes down hill it could kill her. We already had to bury her brother from a car accident 5 nearly 6 years ago and now we have to face losing her too. All because people are being asswhole. Pleas do your part.
Stay home, protect the NHS and save lives
I have today found that I have the best Landlords in the world. They are being so supportive with the fact that I am quarantined in my flat and it has been so nice. I have also met some lovely people on facebook who have been really amazing. Had a long chat with one person today who said she will keep an eye on the trolls on one group and look out for me a bit because she knows what Autism is like.
Be safe out there and the best advice I can give you is the second you notice a symptom call for medical advice. The sooner you can get help the better it is for you.
So I developed the COVID-19 symptoms and I was told today that they are typical with all the other ones. I had a doctor call me today to check up on me because I am asthmatic and she was concerned about the breathing. However, she is satisfied that the breathing is more concerning when I am moving around so she told me that I should limit moving within reason. I am fine with that because all I want to do is sleep.
The thing I have to do is to make sure that I eat because Doctor told me to eat no matter what it is. I need the energy. The cough is driving me a bit nuts because my head hurts when I get a coughing fit.
The fever is the worst part of it. It bloody Yo-Yos. It goes down and then it goes up and down again. I would like it to go down and stay down… However, I think I am going to have a while to wait. I hate being sick but with this, I have had to make sure I do ok.
The key thing that I have been told is that once the fever goes then contagiousness should be gone which is something I am hoping is true. It is important to make sure I protect everyone around while also looking after myself.
Please if you develop symptoms stay home, call 111 and do what you have to do.
To all those asswholes who are walking around coughing on first responders saying you have COVID get a grip because if you can leave the damn house you do not have COVID. You are badly raised and your parents should be absolutely ashamed and if their not then their probably a disappointment to their parents. In a time we should be pulling together you have raised kids who think it’s ok to cough and spit on elderly people and first responders when if they got sick they would want everyone to help. All should be ashamed.
Remember Stay Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives!
So today I developed a cough and what the doctor said was a mild fever – YEAY THE ASTHMATIC HAS COVID SYMPTOMS!!
So on the advice of the NHS 111 service, I have to stay indoors for definite for 14 days. I am on antibiotics, steroids, and asthma inhalers. 14 days I have to figure out how I get my bins put out because I can’t keep the full bins in my flat for 14 days. Don’t think that would be too healthy.
Positive side I have had lots of people offering to help me out whilst I have to stay indoors for 14 days straight. 😦 Need to make sure I get enough sleep and enough liquids to keep my body hydrated.
The outpour of support has been amazing. Even had someone go and collect my medication for me and drop it on my front door for me.
So this is one whole week since I been keeping to myself and honestly I do not know what to do with myself. I feel like I am spending too much time online. I need something to do. I may even start playing the simms for a break in the day. I have 11 more weeks of this minimum :S
So my day has become infinitely nicer. I posted that I will be stuck in my flat until this is over baring one day a week when I can do one walk and or shop and asked for things to do. Someone had a stack of DVDs and delivered me a whole box of them.
SO I have to stay inside due to risks to me but someone has made this effort to help me stay sane and it has made my day! It makes up for the crappiness of other people!!!
We need more people helping those of us stuck inside and less selfish peopl.
