My friend was tested last night for covid19

so my friend norma was tested for covid19 last night. the ambulance came to her house to test her. they arrived at 10:15 pm. thats pretty fucking late if you ask me, she was in bed and they rang her to say they were outside her door. so she had to get up and answer them and they came in all gowned up and did the test.  they also checked her blood pressure, blood sugar, oxygen levels, and temperature. all were normal. so they said it is likely that she doesnt have the virus, but they couldnt say for sure.  she should have her results either late tonight or  if not then it will be monday.  she rang me after they left because I told her to call me once she’d been tested.  she said she felt headachy and weak, but other than the headache and some pain in her legs she is feeling ok today.  the ambulance guy said she may have another virus, not corona, but some other one.  she was worried that I was mad at her, i told her I wasnt.  she didnt know she might have it, if she did know she wouldnt have let me come over.  I know that.  she is just not that type of person that she’d put others at risk of becoming sick.  anyway. i hope she will be ok. and that the test was negative.  fingers crossed for a positive result.

A few odds and ends

So my mom bought an air purifier at the weekend. She got it on Friday. She used it on both Friday night and Saturday night, and she said she can already feel the benefit of it. It cost her 160 euro. I wasnt sure at first about it but it seems to work for her so thats good. Anything that will help her to breathe better, I’m all for.

I’m a bit miffed tonight because my ginger souflet body lotion is all gone. It was a scent I loved. And the store that sells it is no longer selling it, and even if they were, its not opened now, and it probably isnt going to open again once the coronavirus is over.

I have other body lotions, but my other favourite one, which is rose scented and makes me think of our therapist, is almost gone as well.

Speaking of Eileen, I just sent her a text, because I hadnt gotten the link to our zoom meeting for tomorrow. She has already texted me back. She said I am keeping her on her toes. She just sent the link to me a couple minutes ago.

I am so looking forward to therapy tomorrow. We have just been so off this week. It feels awful. So I will be glad of the session and the chance to talk.

Well gonna go read, so catch yall later!


sunday evening ramble

I’ve had a pretty chill day. Did nothing much. Relaxed and watched tv, am currently watching 48 hours, its about the siege at waco.
I love when my day is relaxing, and today definitely was.
Before going home from mom and dads house, we all had sunday dinner, dad cooked corned beef, it was delicious.
I was up super early today, since I slept like a log last night, went to bed last night at 11 Pm, went straight to sleep. Oh well, I suppose having two gins will do that to you lol.
To all of the US and others moms who read this, I hope your having an amazing mothers day.
Happy mothers day to all of you!
Our mothers day is in march!
Well going to go watch another ep of 48 hours, then read for a while. Have two books I am tryihg to finish up.

1 AM update

I feel like I havent written here a lot lately. And its true, I havent.
Today was a quiet day. I had therapy in the morning, that was good, but very draining, we worked on processing some memories, and we did it using EMDR.
I had to work after therapy, I barely had time to make a cup of coffee, before I had to start work. I worked on friendly call, well worked from home as I’ve been doing now for weeks. I worked for about 3 hours, I had about 30 calls to make. Everyone I talked to was well and in good spirits which was so nice.
After work I ate something and then i crashed. I crashed for about 2.5 hours. I was exhausted, probably from therapy, but also because last night I only got 3 hours of sleep, and I tossed and turned all night long.
I woke around 7 PM and then I just chilled out for the rest of the evening, talked to my mom, talked to friends over facetime and via text messages.
Now its 1 AM and I am still up. I might read for a while before I try to sleep. I’m trying to read the new maggie hartley book, I’m only a few chapters in.
I have my PA frances coming in the morning at 9. We have to go get a few bits that I need at the grocery store, and I need to get money out of the ATM to pay for Nitro’s surgery on Friday. My plan is to walk to the store, to get some exercise in.
Here’s a bit of an update on the coronavirus situation here in ireland, we had another 77 deaths here today, and over 400 new cases were diagnosed.
We’ve had over 600 deaths now from the virus.
I know that doesnt seem like many but our population is only 4 million.
I’m still staying home and staying safe. There’s nothing else for it.
