thanks for your words of kindness guy’s I am truly humbled.
I have neglected you dear diary no post for two weeks, I was busy readying our business for the eat out to help out campaign starting on Monday something that we hoped would give us an opportunity to be rewarded for the hard work that we put in through lockdown.
we remained vigilant and vigorously disciplined to enable us all to remain safe and in good health.
I woke up in the small hours of Thursday morning and wondered what had hit me, I felt like I had been hit in the head with a brick, I couldn’t move yet wondering if I had had some sort of a night terror because I was soaked, the bed soaked and from then to now I have been isolated fighting a battle, one where I have had some moments to test the very core of my resolve. I have been tested for the virus, I believe that this is just a formality. My body temperature has only got below 38 an hour or so ago and has hit 40 a couple of times, 111 have been a help, I have had a prescription sent today for some hefty pain relief. I am developing a hefty rash and I feel like I am in the ring with the undefeated and I have been clubbed, battered and I am hanging on hoping for that bell to ring.
so I should be asleep happy that I would get to enjoy a moment in the sun next week to add to the effort I have given my job selflessly throughout the pandemic. Yet I am sidelined for how long?? Nobody can answer that.
how did I catch it?? I have an idea I will share when the result is back from the test.
I have lived in the school of hard knocks for a long time, I will be honest with myself this is pretty devastating.
I passed six months without escape, my day count of sobriety grows
I will not loose sight of that, it’s strength has been my guide
just for today
stay safe and don’t put yourselves in harms way, it’s not worth the pain believe me I believe I have a real life insight into the power of the pandemic.
