What to do when the BIG C aka Coronavirus aka Covid-19 gets to you?!?
And by that - I don't mean 'emotionally get to you' (though to that question I will answer: write a blog!) but rather I mean PHYSICALLY get you?
See, I have a FRIEND who thought she did everything right. She has been very cautious, wearing her Kn95 mask well over her nose, stayed home most of the time during these two years, got vaccinated and boosted, washes her hands religiously, uses a hand sanitizer so generously that her hands are dry, and does her best to avoid handshakes and the likes. Well, this friend suddenly found herself feeling mild symptoms and WHOOPS she tested positive for the big C. Omicron has come to her, like it has SO many others.
If you are guessing that my friend is ME... well.... drum roll.... YOU'RE RIGHT.
I have made it through nearly two years existing through a global pandemic without my personal experience with the virus... until today.
But worry not, I am vaccinated and boosted (and, um, believe in science thank you very much) and got a pretty good regimen of taking care of myself: vitamins, supplements, vegetable soup, ginger shots, healthy juices... those are all pretty much part of my daily or weekly routines anyways, so my body and me GOT THIS. (Yes, I am aware that some of those healthy methods may not be 100% scientifically found, but the power of belief in my self care ways is all the vibes right now)
I will be fine maybe in just a matter of days.
But some 5.5 MILLION humans of the world cannot say that, so I am very grateful to be among the healthy, the lucky and the VACCINATED.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
