Day 6 of isolation.

First day I've been able to anything memorable. It's been 20 hour sleeps broken up by pee runs and short attempts to stay sitting up for an hour or so. Coughing is weakening me. Horrendous sneezes. pulmonary thrills that upset my breathing. Lungs seemingly full with something, but not fluid. Yesterday, however, my GP put me an "antiviral" (molnupiravir) and that seems to have reduced the symptoms quite a bit.

Today, I wrote a poem, which is a good sign. The opening lines were a few days old, but I managed to get into the swing of it.

We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Thank You, diary, for listening. Love you.
