Still Sick

I can’t believe I’m still sick. Three covid tests later and while I can mostly breathe through my nose, my chest is congested and if I talk too much, I start to cough. I’m tired all the time and can only focus for a bit. Time seems to fly by as I don’t get much done. It’s really strange. This has knocked me on my butt.

I told you the older kid had it first. The younger one is feeling about the same as me, but the other one is better. So I’m hoping it’s just a matter of time before we’re all better. But it’s a huge drag to be sick and this isn’t even Covid (for which I’m grateful)!

I’ve barely been on WP so if I am missing some of your posts, that’s why. I’m sure I’ll be fine, but this is more than a summer cold/flu. I’ve had antibiotics which did nothing to help, so I guess it’s just going to take time. I’ve missed some special events because of it, but that can’t be helped. At least I’m still here.

I’ve heard other people say that they know people who have had something similar that’s going around and it hung on for weeks. I’m hoping that’s not the case with me, even though tomorrow marks the beginning of week three. At least I can cook a little again because getting take out was expensive.

Anyway, just checking in to see how you are all doing. I can’t believe July is almost done! Time has flown by.

    I hesitate to “like” because I’m sad you are still sick. That is miserable, I’m sure. Your body obviously needed the down time, but jeepers, that is a long time! I hope things turn around soon and you get back to 100% health. Sending positive thoughts and prayers! ❤ Hang in there!! ❤ 🙂 ❤

  3. Sheesh. I’m so sorry you are feeling poorly! In my never humble opinion, your doc needs to culture your sputum and figure out what it IS and not simply continue to rule out Covid. Lab tests could solve the mystery. Please feel better.
