Up your nose the swab tickles your brain. This is so lame. It sucks to have to say I even had to do this. Walking in I felt like I was on the set of E.T. When they asked me my name I said “Elliot”, you have to have a sense of humor or else your doomed for depressions best. Lest you forget we are in the midst of a major pandemic.
It prickles more than it burns, stomach churns with anxiety. Then you wait for what they’ve learned. The waits sucks, and so does the fatigue. No magazines.
200 tests all in one day, at a tiny urgent care center. Shuts down early from exhaustion of swabbing noses for the infection. Oppression stands behind me masked up waiting with weary eyes.
This is the new norm cases rise. We are somewhat paralyzed as we wear our new disguise. Covid-19 who would thought all of this in 2020. Close down shop, send people on their way with a leaflet of instructions. Kind of felt like a party with all the people, but there was no confetti.
Now I am home, not feeling so hot (except for my low grade fever). My tummy hurts, body aches, and now I wait, wait, wait…ISOLATE! and pray, pray, pray! Yep, this just today! 🤙🙏🏻
I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?” Psalm 9:10
