Everyone I Know Is Sick

 It seems as though everyone I know is sick and most are Co-Vid related. I myself have not been feeling well and I am waiting on a call from the doctor's office to see if I need to be tested myself. I woke up yesterday feeling nauseous and had a horrible headache. Today, I still have a headache but I am not nauseous and feel a bit better. 

 I don't have a cough and I don't have a fever, so I really do not think it is this horrible virus, but I want to make sure. I lost a cousin last week to Co-Vid 19 and he was very healthy and younger than myself. I can't imagine the pain his family is feeling as I know it has really had me in a horrible funk and mad at the world.  I just want to be sure that I am doing all that I can to help my family stay well. I will not allow the virus to take another family member. 

I have several people near me that are sick with it right now. A good friend has both parents home sick and now her dad's oxygen is dropping. I also have family members on my husband's side that are sick with it. For some reason, this Delta variant seems to be hitting so close to home and many people around us are sick with it. I have not had close contact with them, but I want to be sure that I am not taking a chance of exposing my own family to even more of a chance of getting it. 

Today, my worst complaint is my headache! I just can't seem to get rid of it and it seems to be getting worse at times. I believe it is way worse than a migraine and my normal meds are not getting rid of it. I think I would feel better if I did not have it. Temp is running normal, but I do feel as though I get warmer if I am up moving around. I am just thankful that I am not feeling nauseous today.

I pray that you all stay healthy and that Co-Vid leaves us soon. I was vaccinated and I am not regretting it, but I am wondering why so many that I know are sick now that were not sick before vaccinations. 


  1. I think they are sick because the Delta variant is a very strong variant and mutated from the original covid-19 strain (as variant do) and is very strong, highly contagious and spreading like wild-fire (my sister is infectious disease control/Dir of Nursing so she keeps me informed on the waves / variants). And of course we all knew that vacinating was not going to keep us from ever getting covid or a variant, but to hopefully keep us from dying / having to be ventilated / hospitalized if we did get it (like a flu shot keeps you from hopefully not dying from yearly flu but you can still get the flu, just not as bad). But I certainly hope you ALL recover and feel better soon!!!

  2. I am so sorry. We have also lost friends to Covid which made it a no-brainer for us to get the vaccine. It is scary stuff. I hope you don't have it and I hope anyone you know that has it recovers. I am so sorry about that young man's death. His poor family- xo Diana

  3. Prayers you are feeling better and don't have the CV19.

  4. Oh my goodness, yo have so much on your plate! As well as being sick yourself. Please let us know what the doctor says, and if you get a diagnosis! I am so sorry!

  5. I hope you get a good test result and that all shall be well. Alas, the variant wasn't part of the original Covid when the vaccines were developed. But if we can get to herd we might prevent a new variant from Delta.

  6. LOTS of people have COVID! I lost my Sister Barbara to COVID in February:( SADDEST times:( I was vaccinated too and don't regret it at all! I pray that this stinking virus leaves us all alone before too long! It is awful! Enjoy your day, I pray you feel better and get negative test results! HUGS!
