One of the members of our house tested positive when she went to the ER. The rest of us subsequently tested and are negative.

Suffice it to say that it’s been a stressful week. My sister-in-law is exacerbating it with her constant bombardment of texts. As if we would knowingly put anyone at risk. None of us has symptoms and all are negative.

Stress is my biggest trigger for most of my issues. Last night I kept waking to vertigo. I am glad they were just mini spins, but I didn’t get much sleep. Not consistent anyway.

I am trying to center myself. Taking mindful breaths in and out to help clear my mind. Listening to lots of Christmas music and watching feel good stuff all while in isolation.

People don’t understand what it’s like to be chronically ill. And how stress affects our health. If they did would they keep the harping up? No compassion. Though I don’t really wish this on anyone, I would like the busybodies of the world to experience it for awhile. Though I am sure they would try to regale us with how they overcame.

Bottom dollar I need to work on my reactions to others. And maybe not egg her on with facts. Yes, because I gave facts about fully vaccinated and negative tests she assumed we weren’t taking precautions. We had already been tested once and had scheduled another test. We even decided to go one step further and take rapid tests before joining any family gatherings.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita

  1. Hey – I can imagine how terrible those texts felt coming in like that – ugh and it remind me that some people are just so darn fearful (not their fault either because in some media circles the hype is there and we’ll….
    I digress)
    But it is hard to have “grace” for such rudeness – and hope the Christmas music floods you with some peace!


    1. This particular person said I was disrespectful even though we were getting tested multiple times. When last year she had symptoms and was going to deliver gifts to everyone and have dinner with a friend. The only reason she didn’t was that she had a test so she could travel to NY and it got the results Christmas Eve.
