Today I want to talk about the coronavirus. My test was negative, but my sister and brother in law have it. My sister is getting better, but my brother in law is still sick. My mother is being tested today. I’m praying they will all be healthy and safe.
My test, my mother’s test, and my sister and brother in law’s positive test all came after a Thanksgiving get together. My Mom and I had to get tested to see if we were exposed to covid since my sister and brother in law have it.
I love family get-togethers during the holiday season, but now after my covid scare I am considering dropping presents off, and just spending some time with one family member instead of three. This virus is real and killing up to three thousand people a day. It’s not a hoax. Wear a mask!
I haven’t seen my friends at all during this virus, and yes it sucks, but as a diabetic I have to be safe. Everyday when I get home from work I wash my face, phone, glasses, and anything else I’ve touched during the day.
I limit my trips to the supermarket to once a week, and a few times a week to smaller stores.
I am talking about this on my blog not to be political, but to offer advice on how to stay safe. If you love your family and friends, don’t compromise your health and theirs by not wearing a mask, attending large gatherings, or not washing your hands and face regularly.
The vaccine is on the way, be patient, safe, and practice healthy habits. I normally like to talk about the effects of diabetes and how it has compromised my health on this blog. This is a virus that can kill diabetics, so please wear a mask and practice social distancing!
My next blog I discuss my continued search for the best healthcare I can find. Stay safe and healthy!
