Having a head cold during CoV19....can you believe it?

With all the precautions my wife and I take to protect our children and ourselves from this pandemic, how the hell did I get a head cold??

I'm not one who gets sick, i take care of myself, especially at this time, but then again there is a lot of stress about, what with the pandemic, getting my private practice up and running and learning all the IT skills and social media, is challenging to this boyo.

I fluctuate every 24 hours [it’s only been three days- we men, I hear are drama queens] from coughing to sneezing. But there is always the fear that it might be something more. Unfortunately where i reside, the vaccines are slow getting to the population and being an expat, the fear is i might get mine after October, even though i am over 60.

I miss my children’s hugs and kisses, being close with my wife, all the normal intimate things we take for granted.

writing this blog today, this wasn’t the chosen subject ,i was going to continue about the spiritual sickness that we label mental illness, but this is where i am right now. I look terrible, feel terrible, cannot sit in front of a camera and produce my videos as though everything is ‘fine’.

FINE= fucked up, insecure, neurotic and emotional.

Its ok to be human, to miss a deadline, to take care of one’s health, to take time out.

Was I worried about getting the virus before ? sure!!

Am I 10 times more worried of getting it now ? definitely!!

The best thing any of us can do for our own well-being and those of family, friends, colleagues, neighbors and the public, is to stop, and rest.

I fear telling anyone I have a cold, in case they put 2+2 together, and come up with 99.and yet here I am writing a blog about it.

there is a need in all of us ,to have a voice, especially when we are down, under the cosh, when all looks lost and we feel the depths of despair.

this is the moment to stand up, take a chance, and speak our words, whatever they are.

I walked the path of the prodigal son, disillusioned with man-made religion for most of my life and its only in the past two years, have turned off that path. Not returned to organized religion, I keep it simple.

The new testament clearly defines all i need to do to live my life and experience the promised miracles therein contained.

embrace all of the trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit………. AS MY GOD.

Never harm one hair on the head of a child of God

Live my life as if every human being on this earth [including myself] might be a child of God.

When I decide to tell anyone my words, I tell Him first, inviting the holy spirit to guide me in my thoughts, words, actions, deeds.
