Even Unicorns Can Get COVID
Better a unicorn with COVID than not a unicorn at all.
I know I’m a little late on this Iteration and I apologize for that. As you can hear, my voice doesn’t sound the way it normally does and maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe it sounds better.
In the Iteration I was going to do, I was going to talk about finding that thing you live for, that thing that you love, that thing that lights you up. But I have to postpone it because I’m just having a hell of a time stringing two thoughts together. Even going through this right now, I’m live without a net, as it were. I don’t have a script or any outline like I normally would have when I record one of these. For this one, all I have is COVID and apparently have had it since sometime over the weekend—and let me tell you, it is not fun. Don’t listen to all of those stories telling you how great it is and how all the cool kids are getting it. It’s a lie. I’ve been vaxxed and vaxxed again boosted and, you know, while all of that probably means that it’s much less severe and means that the odds of me needing to go the hospital are much less, it still sucks. Adrianne tested positive Friday and I think I tested on Sunday. I was feeling fine and I went to mow the lawn. You know, I get allergies this time of year anyway and I started getting a stuffy nose and thought it was just allergies becasue normally this time of year, that’s what happens. But I took a test I think on Sunday and sure enough…positive. Or maybe it was Sunday or Monday. It hasn’t been as bad as some people who I have known or we have known that have gotten it. We’ve known people that’ve gotten very, very sick—I’ve known a couple people who died. So by that comparison, it’s very mild. I’m currently in the “low energy, feels like a truck ran over you” phase of the program and all I want to do is sleep, which I hate because I end up waking up feeling guilty that I’ve been sleeping instead of working on whatever it is that I think I should be working on.
But the other side of that is you don’t really feel like you can work on anything because there is this “brain fog” our friend Michelle called it. Yeah, it’s a real thing, it just, you know, thoughts come and go. I mean, my brain kind of works like that anyway a lot of the time. But I’m usually able to hold onto thoughts and for the last couple days, it just doesn’t work that way. Things come in and go out and I sit down to write and I’m all over the place. I mean, I read it back and I just go, “who wrote this?” You know? That kind of thing. But I did want to get something out because I didn’t want to miss one. Isn’t that weird? I didn’t want to miss one. So even if it’s not something that I would normally do, it’s still something. There’s still…an effort was made, I guess. I don’t know. I don’t know. You see? You hear it in real time how it’s happening. But thank you for your understanding and I will be back with something wildly interesting next week. Alright?
Thanks so much for reading.
