Day 3 – isolation

My throat is on fire, my chest is tight. Taking a full, deep breathe is hard! I am stuffy and headachy, and feel like I am burning up….eventhough I am cold to touch.

I am not 100% unwell, I can’t say that I ‘haven’t’ had a worse cold experience in the past. I am feeling rough and a bit drained but no different to any other cold I have had in the past. And yet, I can’t be sure whether this is just another cold or whether I have the big C. I have to isolate for 7 days, with my family isolating for 14 days….

The isolation is getting to me, and I know with the grand scheme of things then boredom is at the very bottom of people’s concerns! But the feeling of being ‘trapped in’ is getting to me. I feel for all those people on the front line who are dealing with the good and ugly in people!

There are people out there who should hang there heads in shame for how they have acted during this pandemic. There are good cases where people are helping those most vulnerable….but then there are the selfish people who are taking way more than they need.

Stocks are low in stores, not everyone is getting what they need. Items such as baby formula which is essential for nutrition in babies is taken speedily and greedily, without thought for the next person to come along! Stores and store people are trying there best, they are trying to cope with the mad rushes, and the high demand. There are queues of people daily outside supermarkets, from as early as 7am every morning! Just waiting to get in and grab something!

Not only does it amaze me how people can act like this! It also makes me wonder how they afford it all! Or where they even put it at home! Have they got food waste because they took too much?

The world has gone completely mad! And as much as indoors bores me, I am glad that I don’t have to deal with outside at the moment! I am safe and sheltered from it all. I hope that by the time I can leave the house then people have started acting a bit more rationally!

  1. I hope you get better soon. My boys and I have also been very sick with chest infections and all the other symptoms of COVID-19. I don’t think its that but who knows. You can’t know unless you are tested and you aren’t tested unless you are hospitalised.
