It's been a while since I last wrote a post, but I can start by telling you about my painting that I had been working on for a few months, which went to hell! It made me a bit "defeated".
The painting itself was not a waste, because now I have learned an important lesson about what to do next time I get the opportunity to paint on it again or on other paintings.
Nothing is ever wasted!
Either you win, or you learn and I learnd a lot through the process.
It was not supposed to be that long from the last time I posted a post until now, but sometimes personal things take over and suddenly life happens. Personal things that I have struggled with for as long as I can remember, and that have now come up more than before, and I MUST deal with it properly... I can come back to what I talk about here in a later post.
So now I have returned home to my city - home to Tromsø. Unfortunately, several with Corona have been detected in Tromsø. There was a press conference on Friday about the case and it turns out that one of the cases, was an infected employee who was working at a café me and my friend happened to be at... Just my luck!
Fortunately, I feel in good shape and have no symptoms yet. If I have symptoms I have to take on Monday.
Now that I have just returned home, things would suddenly flare up here after a long time without a wave of cases and of course I stayed in a café where the employee was infected with the virus...
The situation in the city is far from fun, but you just have to take comfort in the fact that everyone feels the same way, more or less.
I have to be extra careful not to get Corona, because people like me who have an intestinal disease are more vulnerable. On the other hand, I'm not very old or have a bad immune system and I can actually not eat healthier than I do. In addition, I take plenty of vitamin C and vitamin D, which viruses are generally not very excited about, but I am still worried. The after-effects of having Corona are often asthma. A good friend of my mother happened to be after she had been infected.
But back to why I am now at home in Tromsø.
My boyfriend lives in the south of Norway and I in the north. We've been together for over a year, but I'm not moving right away. The situation is more complicated than that.
One of the reasons why I dont want to change address etc, is that I then also have to change GP. My GP is like no other and he really does everything for his patients! He knows me and knows my whole story, since I moved to Tromsø when I was 13 years old.
It has so far taken me almost a year with this case and I do not want to start all over again. It is briefly about my stomach problem that has been with me since the fall of 2018. Not only have I struggled with stomach problems, but nasty symptoms similar to MS (Multiple Sclerosis), also began to take shape. It has been a struggle since with my health, but I have fortunately got rid of the MS symptoms, so it is going in the right direction.
I am very dedicated to my health, more than I have ever been and I have received many tools along the way.
It's a bit like hearing that you have lung cancer if you smoke. You just stop smoking during the day and you do everything you can to get well again to regain your health. There are no other choices and that's how it is for me.
Well now will soon go and paint on a painting I did not finish here at home last time. I'll see if I can finish my self-portrait I've been working on for a while.
- How are you doing right now in the pandemic and what do you miss the most?
Hugs from me!
