Covid Memory Loss

I woke up this morning and I stretched and my mind went to the usual ‘what day is it, what do I have to do, where’s Keith, the kids, what’s the girls plans today…etc’ and I couldn’t remember what day it was or what was happening!

I mean literally had no idea… I was going through what we did yesterday and trying to work out where in the week I was… nothing! I totally panicked as I realised there was very little differentiating the days to help me! I just couldn’t get it.

Realistically it was only 30 seconds probably , but I had to look at my phone to be sure.. I honestly thought it was Tuesday?!? And couldn’t quite believe we were on Sunday!!! Scared me to death!

Anyway I googled it to check I wasn’t starting with dementia of something.. apparently it’s a common experience during lockdown as all the days are the same and we aren’t getting enough daylight! Same with the vivid dreams and even momentarily forgetting even what month we are in.

How weird is that? It really shocked me.. I really was freaked out!

Anyway in other news all our COVID tests came back negative.. doesn’t mean we are definitely in the clear and not out of quarantine until next week but we know we didn’t have it on Friday at least.. (Keith’s been in close contact with someone who’s positive and we have another week of possible infection showing ) Keith’s still in the spare room and we are really missing each other now.. 😞 but we have to do all we can to protect the boy x

Unfortunately it’s a massive worry that we will infect William as he’s almost certain to end up in hospital on fluids as a standard treatment.. the paediatric ward already have him on a ‘direct contact’ list in case he catches it… so he can go straight in and there’s a huge chance it’d go straight to his lungs .. if he went to hospital he’d be on his own too.. although hes 15 they said Wils would probably have to go to hospital alone as I would obviously have to quarantine and could join him and he’s old enough to be unaccompanied … He’s obviously frightened of that happening and if I’m honest I think he’d refuse to go on his own!! It’s a scary thought!

Anyway we are doing what we need to do .. there’s lots of spraying, hand washing, changing of clothes, cleaning, window opening and obsessive over action… but y’know this is our family!

Anyway we’ve had another day of doing not much.. Kitty baked with her Daddy and we sat in front of the fire.. that’s it… I know we should go walk for a bit.. but it’s cold!
