My cousin is in the hospital with Covid pneumonia and is on a ventilator since last night. Her doctors are saying she won’t “oxygenate”. Her oxygen was down to 70 and her blood sugar was over 800 when she went in. I’m afraid she isn’t going to make it. This comes very soon after my beloved aunt died from Covid double pneumonia… my mom was/is very very close with both of them, it seems like she’s going to lose all her friends, the people she can talk to when she’s stressed or going through something. I’m worried about her too.

It seems like everyone in my cousins immediate family got it bad.

Let’s hope she recovers even though it looks grim right now.

And no she wasn’t vaccinated. I don’t think she trusts vaccines in general because she won’t get flu vaccines either.

My mom is vaccinated and boosted. She also had raging legionnaires pneumonia several years ago which did damage to her lungs. That’s what worries me. People who have had pneumonia or chronic bronchitis (like my aunt) seem to do worse with Covid. I’m just really afraid she’ll get it and wind up in the hospital. That scares me more than anything. Even though she’s vaccinated, that absolutely does not stop you from contracting it or spreading it. The vaccine is supposed to prevent severe cases in which you wind up on a ventilator. I hope it does it’s job. I fucking hate this virus. So much.

Sigh. Anyhow.

I have made the decision to move to Charlotte in the next couple years. I found a place that takes section 8 and sits in the first ward historic district of the city 🏙 I have always dreamed of living in a big city, since I was a kid. I dreamed of looking out my window at night and seeing the city lights all around me. When I was a kid my biggest dream was to go to NYC. When I turned 16, I finally got to go as a birthday present. I was wide-eyed and amazed. The culture shock was very real though.

I asked my peer support lady Ginger if they would let her take me down to Charlotte and view the apartment complex and hopefully a unit when the time comes. She said she probably could, so yay!




It always amazes me how people will tell you they like you, that you’re their your friend, and then drop you like a sack of potatoes. And don’t even have the guts to tell you in person.

Anyhow

I move next Thursday. My back is killing me so I’m having a really difficult time packing all this shit. Thankfully I have some help. I’ll post some pics of my new place for the 0 people who read this blog 😀
