Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1096: Covid Ramble

Alright, I’ve got to try and get this written before I feel like I’m losing my balance again, because the lack of equilibrium has been one of the most frustrating things about having Covid.

Quite frankly, I’ve had a pretty lucky run with this. I was bedridden one day last week and it was an awful experience. I’m still ill now and it still is quite unpleasant, to say the least. However, I’m not stuck in bed which I consider to be a massive improvement. Not being able to move about much isn’t fun, but being in bed moving in and out of fevers is much less so.

I’ve gotten quite lucky in that there likely will come an end to this and I’ll be fine. Maybe not, but the likelihood is that that is what is going to happen. I’ll likely be fine and then I’ll be able to get on with my life. I’m pretty sure vaccination has helped there. This could’ve gone a lot worse than it has, but I’ve done alright. With that said, I’d rather have Swine Flu again.

This could be much worse, but it could also be better. Covid is still around and it’s still getting to quite a few people and I worry that the relatively benign attitude toward it is going to lead to worse things. Could be wrong though.

That said, I’d rather fewer people get this. I’d rather no one person gets this. I’m glad I’ve been careful whilst this has been going around and I’m going to continue as I don’t want to see Covid keep on spreading. Last week was a rough experience and if I remain ill, then this week will also be a rough experience. It’s difficult to get anything done and so I can’t work and thus cannot earn money. I imagine that it is the same for a lot of people and so… yeah; would much rather this whole thing go away. It won’t if we aren’t more proactive about the whole thing.

I don’t know what else I can say at this point and writing is still a massive struggle due to the need to try and remain upright or at least able to not feel like I’m going to fall over somehow, so I think I’m going to work on heading to bed and resting as I need sleep. I’m tired and I’m still ill and it’s still going on. I can’t get much of anything done like this and it’s really frustrating. Again, I’m really lucky in that this likely will pass and I’ll be fine, but it remains frustrating. I feel as though I have the energy to get things done, but I am prevent in getting anything done and so I sit here and I type out these words and it’s just difficult to do so, so now is the time for rest in the hopes that I wake up feeling better in the morning.

Covid really sucks.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 10:04:38

I’m aware it’s COVID and not Covid, and also I’m aware it’s COVID-19, but anyway…
This… yeah. It was a struggle to write.

Written at home.
