Pneumonia

Some weeks ago I was sent to the hospital due to my body not recovering from COVID-19 after twelve weeks of symptoms.

Being in the COVID ward was hard enough, surrounded by people who were struggling to take a breath.

After many tests, the doctor was able to tell me that COVID had given me pneumonia, with no underlying conditions.

Covid-19

I don’t know why I haven’t shared my experience with COVID-19 yet, I think it’s because it was all so real for me when this started.

My partner travels all around the country for work, so it was always going to be brought into this house, and I was always going to catch it.

In the past few years, differing political factions have both been caught up in acts of aggression against the other side and it is beginning to remind me of a time in my early life as I watched my government start to lock people up for being like me.

12 Months

It has been a year since my last miscarriage, tests from Tommys keep being pushed back every few months, in this time I have kept hoping that we will find the problem but after a year it’s being to feel hopeless.

I’m another year older than I was, another year with terrible mental health, and I honestly feel that I have achieved nothing. That’s not true, however, so I thought I’d list my achievements none the less.
