The bounce back.

Sometime life throws you a curve. You can stand there and look at it, cry and strike out, or you can swing and hope you knock it out the park.

Life threw me a curve ball called Covid 19. Yes…I tested positive and was quarantined alone with a high fever, sever body pain and difficult breathing. For the first two days…I felt so miserable I simply laid there and waited for death. Yes….I felt that bad. On the third day, literally three days after my symptoms began, I gave up on death taking me and pulled myself up out of the bed and slowly forced myself to walk around my bedroom. I opened the curtains and even turned on the TV. I decided to swing at the curve ball. Instead of looking at the boxes and bottles of meds on the bedside table, I decided to take them. I sat, for as long as I could, up in a chair and faced the window to get a little sun. I texted a close friend, only to find out that her husband was going threw the same thing, symptoms and all. We chatted for a bit and that very day I felt better. The next two days were horrible, as far as pain and breathing, but I continued to take a few steps around my bedroom, take the meds and sit in the sun.

Finally on day 10, I began to feel an ease in the pain and was taking a few deep breaths without struggling. Slowly I began to improve…I hit the curve ball on strike two.

This past Wednesday I was back at work, on Thursday I went to work out and by Friday I was back cheering for my son.

This is me on the “bounce back”. Recovery

The Covid virus is a horrible THING. So many families have lost love ones to this ugly virus. I was blessed to recover from it and so was my friend’s husband. I beg everyone who reads this to do your part to stop the speed of this deadly virus. Wear a face mask, wash your hands often and please practice social distancing.

To use another baseball analogy…lets knock this virus OUTTA HERE!

Comment, like and share.

until next time…

  1. Thanks for sharing. I know you know I went thru the exact same thing. Prayer really works. So glad you made it through.


  2. Had no idea you were going through. I just returned to work from my bout with it and had similar symptoms. It is a terrible virus that I hope is cured soon. To all the anti-vaxxers out there, you don’t want no part of the “rona.” Praise God we both made it.

  5. Loved reading your story and you are a strong female fighter for sure! I too did have Covid this past Christmas and it had me down for about 3 days…. but mostly due to horrible headache….. no issues with breathing thank goodness but it was a good 7 to 10 days before I felt kind of normal.
