So as most of you know – I had Covid at the end of December/begin of January. I first had symptoms on Dec 25th, was tested the 29th and given Positive results on Dec 31st. Yes, thank you 2020 for one last kick in the pants. Luckily I had a small viral load and got through it, though it wasn’t easy. I have many pre-existing conditions and was told I wouldn’t survive it if I got it – again, luckily a small viral load and I did. But it’s no joke and should never be treated as such. I am beyond grateful just to be able to sit here and type this out as almost everyday I cry for a few minutes thinking of those 500,000 in just the U.S. alone – that aren’t able to do something this simple.
That being said, there is a lot of things that happen to most post-Covid. I have no sense of smell or taste, brain fog, fatigue, peeling nails, hair loss, and weirdly I got these cysts on my hands and wrists area. They grew so fast that what I thought was three different cysts on my left hand, is actually one large cyst spreading through it. It’s extremely painful and I have got wrist supports for both my hands, but it has prevented me from typing for any extended period of time. I have quite a few reviews to write, and am struggling to do so – so I’m trying to figure out a way to do voice text and just have to polish them up. Until then, I’m going to do my absolute best – but I wanted to put this out there so people don’t think I’m just not reviewing their films, or responding back to them. It’s the absolute busiest time of year with all the awards coming up, and I’m so annoyed at all this! But again, I am here to be able to be annoyed at it so I have to always remember that.
Covid changes your life people, and I hope all of you stay safe and get vaccinated when possible. To a better 2021 for all of us.. Cheers!
