June was canceled for me!

Pretty much this whole month, I wish it didn’t happen. First I wound up with a cellulitis infection that had to heal. On the heels of that I tested positive for Covid! I’m three days into it..and my symptoms are super congestion, headaches, sneezing, (my nose is raw) occasional coughing fatigue, and some stomach upset. This strain of the variant virus is like an awful head cold.

My husband who goes out and about everyday has so far tested negative. We have both been fully vaccinated and I’ve even had double boosters.

I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and metabolic syndrome, and had just recovered from a skin infection. I wondered if it was my weakened immune system that made me an easier target for the virus? So far three friends I’d seen a couple of days before I fell ill, all have been fine. -They might be asymptomatic, or hopefully by some miracle I’m the only one who’s become ill?

I was thinking last night that I would hate to be in a physically sick state like this for a duration. I just deel with the other conditions I have..

It must truly be awful to be physically, chronically ill.

I texted my oldest daughter something like the sentance above, with the addition of my current state of health. I doubt she’d even read or respond to it. I have sympathy and can also identify with crap people go through. My 40 year old daughter ghosted us. Without explanation or reason and there was no provocation on our part. She’s got Stage 4 cancer, so on some level I get the block out of people, loved ones, she conveniently doesn’t wish to deel with any longer!

So, I have taken a Red Sharpie across my paper wall calendar and drawn a large X through the month of June! I feel like I didn’t get a June 2022! #illness #COVID19 #Depression #PTSD #sick #AutoimmuneDisease #hate this! I’m in sick #bed mode. #I tried to do a least one productive thing today. I just want to feel better and get back to functioning on some level..

These are recent valuable words from one of our group members -to help inspire every group member to write your own posts within Our Member-Led group

“Share your worst pain openly. I am unable to judge you negatively, because I understand.
Let out some of your pain, be heard, and be understood.”

“More valuable is that we can share our pain with people we know really understand it. This is a way to release some of our pain, and to not feel so alone…..We have done things to make this happen. Maybe we have something more than empathy to share.”

Post update

To everyone who liked or commented on my Suffering Post: Thank You, for your concern, your advice, your relatable stories regarding the same, your prayers, and any good juju, and positive vibes that were sent my way. I have 5 more days of antibiotics, and 1 more for a steroid I’m taking for the cellulitis infection on my face.-Yes, it can happen on a face! It’s caused by a bacteria, so all it needs is an opening on the skin, in my case an insect bite (mosquito.) I am much improved (only I can tell where it started.) I have more wrinkles/character lines by my right eye. Hopefully they’re change and I won’t look older on my right and younger on my left side! 😜🤣 #Healing #illness #Gratitude #ThankYou #
