Yes sabrecat I was thinking about the 'grief'- 'relief' - aspect yesterday because I've had some 'weepy' moments set off by 'old songs' and 'telling my story'. I feel like I'm fighting it hard not to break down crying, I'm grieving over the brother I lost (41yo), the cousin I lost (51yo) and the brother who's dying (51yo) and my father who also died way too young (51yo). I have gotten used to feeling like 'crap' and getting worse in past 2 years and thinking - OMG, is this it? Is this how I will see my days out? Now, the prospect of being virus-free and have better health and energy again - it's a bit overwhelming.
Yesterday's Day 2, continued to be 'hyper', very dehydrated - all that sweating! - normal appetite, sharp stabbing pains in kidneys, intermittent headache very sudden stabbing-type, eyes sensitive to the sun and difficulty focussing on things indoors - blurry vision.
I totally crashed around 2:30 and had to put the car a/c on high in my face to keep me from nodding off at the wheel around 4 pm - very scary!
I was really fatigued until bedtime and was out so quickly I don't even remember trying to fall asleep - like I usually am.
Today is Day 3 and has started out quite differently, felt like I'd been run over by a truck this morning and dragged myself out of bed at 8am, otherwise I think I'd still be there! Still got sweats, light sensitivity and feeling very sore all over and fatigued. My abdomen is very bloated and tender too! I'm still feeling 'dry mouth' and dehydration.
