White blood cells whipping through
Veins that throb with effort
Heat emitting from our pores
The only way to flush the bug
That slyly took the body by surprise
Its evil fingers pulling
At our throat, our lungs
Hurting us with every painful breath.
I have got sick again and I am very bad at being sick. I run so I find my immune system is really strong and I very rarely pick up flu or colds. But then I got COVID last month and I think it’s knocked my immunity.
I was so sick this morning that I actually lay in bed crying. I’m that pathetic.
COVID has a lot to answer for, in my humble opinion. I have had a month of feeling really crummy – the brain fog has been the most frustrating thing. But this weekend has felt like hell and I hope that once I’ve coughed up all this green gunk, I can start looking forward to a healthier life.

Oh, no! Poor thing! As if the stress and strain of daily life weren’t enough, you have to have the dreaded lurgy, too! Please take care of yourself, and sleep as much as you can. Soup, tea, mindless stuff on the box, blankets, the whole thing. Hope you’re well soon!
I’m so sorry you are sick. I can understand being a bad patient. I hope you get over what you have really soon. My sister is recovering from COVID, and for her she says the ongoing fatigue is the worst.
Hope you feel better soon 🙁
I have to agree the brain fog and light headedness were the worst for me. Take care of yourself.

I’m still not back to my full running self 5 months on from having COVID. I’m getting more colds too. Really annoyed at not being able to get past 12km without suffering another set back.
Sending you loads & loads of healing vibes. I really do feel for you! 🙂
