January 2021 Concrete Goals; Life in the Covid fog

January 3rd, 2021 at 07:42 pm

Health update: All of us who have tested are positive for Covid.  I can say that I am not feeling as though I am dying quite as badly or quickly as several days ago.  The shortness of breath is the worst - and as a person who has SOB due to anxiety, this is a double-edged sword.  We are monitoring the oxygen saturation levels here and I have done a breathing treatment or two with the nebulizer, but the albuterol causes an edge.  No win situation for anyone.  But some of us are feeling better and we are receiving help from family who shop and drop.  I did watch the Queens Gambit and enjoyed it.  SO watched Cobra Kai.  We have finished a jigsaw puzzle also.  And I did get a late Christmas present in the mail which was tea.  I enjoyed that.

I also found out that my previous SIL's father died of Covid.  He was a doctor who treated patients with Covid.  He was only 73 and in good health.  I can't really talk about this pandemic anymore - might actually crush me in the process.  But I'm trying to take it one day at a time.


1) 20 NSDs in the month of January (So far 3/3 because of illness - not discipline)

2) $3,500 in savings account (anticipated $1,800 stimulus and $1,650 rental property income and $50 from savings)

We rejected a very lowball contingent offer on the house.  Like $50K less that what the price was just dropped to) and three months.  Being too sick to even ponder about it, SO and I decided to just decline. We're hoping for a reasonable offer soon.  

Off to catch up on the blogs; hope my fellow SA-ers are doing well.

    Ugh, so sorry to hear of your struggles. Frown I hope everyone recovers to full health soon!

    I didn't do a year-end review like I usually do and I haven't even thought about goals and resolutions this year. I feel like it's impossible when everything from normal life to paychecks to health to the foundation of our democracy feels under threat.

    What did your doctors offer for treatment? Please consider some of the early treatment protocols that can help you clear the virus and prevent persistence which could result in becoming a "long haul" patient.

    So sorry for you and your family coming down with this but glad you are feeling slightly better. Are there any natural things you can do to help move the symptoms along? I read something about green tea for example being helpful with Covid. Could chicken noodle soup be helpful? I suffer from sinus majorly and chicken noodle soup is super helpful for it.
