I don’t know about everyone else, but the last few months, I’ve been stressing more and more about Covid. I did everything right….at least I thought I did everything right, but Rich and I still ended up with Covid. Darn it…
After I got out of the hospital and off the oxygen tank, I realized something….If I believe what I’ve read and been told, Rich and I should have antibodies that will protect us for the next 2-3 months from getting Covid (again.)
I went to the grocery store and for the first time, felt less anxious than before we had Covid. I actually didn’t feel like I should be eyeballing every person within twenty feet of me, silently accusing them of possibly passing Covid along to everyone around them. It was liberating. I think we’ve all forgotten what “normal” life is like….but this small window of normalcy has been just what I needed.
I truly hope that the vaccine becomes available to us about the time our antibodies are no longer effective, as I would love being able to continue feeling less anxious.
2020 was such a crappy year, and with losing my sister two weeks before getting Covid, the year ended terribly. I can only hope and pray that 2021 is the complete opposite of 2020…Let’s all put our collective thoughts and prayers together toward that end.
