on being sick
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.
