Hey everyone, how are you?
I had my Covid19 test yesterday, now I am just waiting for the results.
My anxiety is really high still, as I wait for the results to come through either as a text message or email. They say it will take twenty four to forty eight hours for the results to come through. I still have the cold and am still feeling warm, even though my temperature is normal. I have loss some sense of taste and my chest has been tight. Requiring me to use my blue inhaler at times. Although, I try not to use it too often. I can not distinguish if this is my anxiety about being covid positive or actual physical symptoms. And it is starting to really get to me. So, I am trying to distract myself as much as possible, but this is not always working.
What’s worse, is that I cannot go to The Haven, as I maybe covid positive. So, I have to make the best of the situation at home. I spent a good portion of time asleep after my test yesterday, but did also get in a meeting and some writing on the book chapter on mental illness. I also, used music and reading as distractions in the evening to try and keep me calm. As I know that it is not until today that I am most likely to hear anything.
Today, I am going to be writing for most of the day. I have a meeting in the morning, for the book chapter and then have the rest of the day to go through what we discussed. As well as to write my short story. If the test results come back as positive then I will have to call the doctor surgery and the recovery centre. As well as continue to isolate for fourteen days. Alongside all of this I also know that I need to take care of my mental health as the racing thoughts are making it take a battering. To do this I will just be resting and doing small things to help keep me grounded and distracted. Hopefully everything will come back clear and life can return to normal.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
