You never really know the impact of this virus until someone you care about catches it, it isnt nice when anyone catches it let alone your loved ones but you never really know how serious it is until members of your family are extremely ill. My youngest daughter and my ex wife contracted the virus and they had no idea where they caught it, they were very careful wearing full PPE when they went out, doing all the things you are supposed to, taking every precaution you need to and yet they still contracted it.
My daughter in her early thirties was able to fight the virus, even though she had all the symptoms, being young she was able to fight it and fully recovered, but my ex wife who has emphysema wasn’t as lucky, she was hospitalised after the first few days because she couldn’t eat ,drink, or gain strength to battle the virus as she is vulnerable. The virus attacked all her defences, thankfully her breathing was as normal as it could be due to having a lung disease but it floored her in other ways, she was thankfully let out of hospital the following day to be cared for at home but a fortnight after she contracted the virus she is still weak and vulnerable.
I was a bit miffed to find out she never received a covid injection even after contracting the disease but I assume that once you get it the chances of catching it again are very slim, but it is weird how her circumstances and age did not get her the injection a wee bit quicker.
I cannot emphasise enough how important it is to follow ALL the guidelines laid down by medical professionals because you never know when and if it is going to strike.
To the people who think this is not real and think they are safe, trust me no one is safe and the consequences can be dire.
My ex wife is very ill, but she is a battler and I am sure with time she will get over this but it knocked her for six.
Be very careful folks and take all the measures in place to keep safe.#covid19 #family #disease #virus #health #ppe #government #officials #nhs #hospitals Click To Tweet
