Despite not sleeping well last night, I’m still feeling better. I don’t think I’m 100% over being sick. Almost there. I figure tomorrow I might not feel sick anymore and just be recovering.
So what am I going to do today?
I am *not* going to push with this thing. If this was a normal cold, I might. With a cold, I know I’ll recover.
With COVID – I’m not about to risk a relapse. Period.
Yesterday, I stood for about 40 minutes: making dinner, eating dinner, then making kale chips. That was the longest period I’ve stood since I’ve been sick. And it kind of wiped me out. Mind you – I’m used to standing most of the day. This tells me just how weak I’ve gotten, and that my recovery time is going to take a few days.
I was able to do two publishing things instead of just one yesterday. I also only took two naps. One nap was outside in the sunshine. Went down deep and hard. I figure doing that the last few days – baking the crap out of my chest – is a good thing.
Though honestly, Monday evening was when I felt as though my chest started clearing. Tuesday night I was still wheezing slightly. Yesterday, Wednesday, I started doing the deep breathing exercises that some people suggested in response to one of these posts. Felt as though I could do them fully, and get all the air into my lungs.
And I think that’s about it. Am just about finished with my tea and it’s time for a nap. Mind you, I think if I’d slept better last night I wouldn’t need a nap so badly this morning. There might even be caffeine later on, after my nap. We’ll see.
Take care of each other. Wash your hands. Stay at home. Be well.
