27/04/2020 Feeling optimistic

It has been 5 weeks since my symptoms started, I have had a few false dawns when I thought I had recovered. Last night I had a rubbish night, I woke with a headache again, I have been coughing ever since. I don’t feel as ill as I did yesterday, my appetite is still off.

In spite of this I am feeling positive, I had a phone call from occupational health who have done an amazing job and arranged an assessment and hopefully a rehab programme. I also had a telephone appointment with my GP who is starting me on antibiotics. It feels like there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

When I got up this morning I did not think I was going to write a blog today. I did not think I had anything worth saying. I was getting fed up of saying the same thing over and over again. I was running out positive helpful things to say. Then I had the phone call from the wonderful Maureen from our Occupational Health Dept and she made my day. It is not a quick fix, but it is the start of me taking more control over my recovery.

I am celebrating by watching re-runs of Spooks on the BBC i-Player. Anyway back to MI5, stay home, stay safe.
