|Healthline's Best Lupus Blogs 2020.|
Did you miss me?
I had intended to stay with you through the entire pandemic, but things happened. First was the incident mentioned in my previous post, and then some family stuff including my mother being hospitalised repeatedly. The stress from all of it combined led to a flare, so I've spent a couple of months in the flare, moving between lying on the couch, and sitting on the couch.
In the meantime, the first wave of Covid has come and gone, and a second wave is starting down in Victoria. Even Queensland's state borders have reopened, to an extent. People from interstate can come here, under some conditions, with a border pass they have to apply for in advance. At the moment people from Victoria can't come here at all. We don't want any of those diseased southerners here thank you. (Sorry to readers from Victoria. You know I love you, I just prefer to love you from a safe distance right now.)
|I've made face masks.|
Preparing for the second wave, just in case it does get here, I've made some new face masks, for myself and for some other vulnerable family members.
Really, however, things here seem to be getting "back to normal". (If someone knows what normal actually is, please let me know.) I have been out to physical shops, not just buying things online. The church building is going to reopen, and I am going to miss going to church in my lounge room with coffee and wearing my pyjamas. My granddaughter is on school holidays, having had a term back at her physical school.
Aside from Covid-related matters, the news is that Sometimes, it is Lupus has made Healthline's Best Lupus Blogs for the year again. It's always lovely to realise that not only has someone read what I've written, but apparently liked it.
Hopefully, I will be with you now for whatever else 2020 is going to throw at us.
