28/04/2020 I have been getting some Headspace

Another day of feeling pants. Washed out, aching, tired, and detached from the world. There have been positives, I was rung by a physio and had a telephone assessment and she sent me my exercise regimes, which I can start once I have finished my antibiotics. We all had a moment to reflect and remember,Continue reading “28/04/2020 I have been getting some Headspace”

26/04/2020 Head full of cotton wool

I woke up about 4ish with a headache, and I just can’t shift it. My head feels like it is full of cotton wool. I thought taking the dog for a walk and getting some fresh air might clear my head. It hasn’t! My chest feels tighter today too. I am hoping as the dayContinue reading “26/04/2020 Head full of cotton wool”

25/04/2020 It must be the weekend

It’s 7:30 am on a Saturday morning, I have been up about 30 minutes, after another fitful sleep. The dog was pleased to see me get up, until I fed her and now she has moved on to laying near her treat cupboard in the vain hope that biscuit may suddenly appear. I initially putContinue reading “25/04/2020 It must be the weekend”

24/04/2020 Morning Notes

Dragonball Durag by Thundercat is playing on the radio, my head is gently throbbing, as I sit on my sofa in my front room in locked down suburbia.

23/04/2020 I thought I would continue to share with you.

I said yesterday I would not write anything again until I had something positive to say. Well I do have something positive to say…. Thank you! The messages of support I got yesterday lifted my spirits. I was overwhelmed by the kindness ad generosity of spirit expressed by strangers and friends a like. So thankContinue reading “23/04/2020 I thought I would continue to share with you.”

22/04/20 Back to square one

I didn’t write an update yesterday, and today’s is going to be very short. Yesterday my symptoms came back with a vengeance. I went to work but did not last long. I felt a little off first thing but thought it was just morning grogginess. After a couple of hours I was quite breathless, hadContinue reading “22/04/20 Back to square one”

20/04/2020 Today was a good day.

I have had symptoms now for nearly a month. Today I barely noticed them. I had a headache, and was breathless from time to time, but I was so busy doing what I love that they paled into insignificance. Today we went out to talk to staff and give them hand cream, lip balm, andContinue reading “20/04/2020 Today was a good day.”
