It has been almost six months with long covid and mostly I feel the same. I am still taking Claritin D every day, tired with fatigue, feel achy, have daily fevers/chills, experience shortness of breath and racing heart beat. I feel rather worn out.
I am fortunate we don’t have a very big house. I was recently thinking about how if my bed was far away from everyone I would feel lonely. But our apartment is small and I am cared for every moment by maiki and Emma. Being in the midst of all the action keeps my spirits up.
Today is the summer solstice. Already I have taken Emma to the community pool 3 times. It really wears me out but swimming on warm days is what summer is all about. I get in the water to cool off but am aware of not exerting myself too much.
Knitting club has also resumed at our local library and we go every thursday afternoon. So far I managed to do both activities with rest days in between. We have also been reading lots of books together which is lovely.
Some weekends we visit the gardens or the redwoods on a day I have energy. Last weekend we celebrated our friend Gene’s birthday and had the best time.
