Posting two days in a row, oh my what’s going on?! So I’m going to just paste something I wrote on a forum of friends I frequent about something that happened today. I was potentially infected yesterday because of one of my mother’s shitty self-centered sisters (her side of the family is just like the worst version of humanity you can imagine) but time will tell. I’ve already thought I might have COVID two or three times already just because of allergies and a sinus infection I’d had but I knew I was just being paranoid. This is closer to a real concern.
Kinda pissed off right now. We’ve been quarantined in our home for about 3 weeks… I go out to do the shopping and all that because I’m at less risk but despite all of that, my extremely mentally ill aunt came over yesterday and I left right away because I just can’t deal with her on a mental level. She’s the kind of person who always has to be right about everything even though she’s an extreme hoarder and chain smoker who has never been in a romantic relationship once in her life. So by the time I got back she had left and I went about my day. Well today, 24 full hours later, my mother tells me my aunt was coughing the whole time she was over and refusing to cover her mouth because “it’s just allergies”. She texted my mother earlier today saying she now has a fever of 103.
So despite doing everything right, being as careful as possible and washing my hands like a maniac, I probably will get sick. Even though I wasn’t around when she was here hacking her lungs up, she probably got spit and shit all over everything in the house and coated it with virus. I’m not a hygiene freak or paranoid about microbes but it’s likely. Even though I’m low risk I did have lung surgery when I was in my early 20’s so I am a little worried about getting the disease. My mother is definitely high risk and my aunt, if she actually does have COVID, is in all honesty probably going to die. She’s smoked for 40 years, has high blood pressure, and like I said is a hoarder so she just breathes cat feces and dust all day. She had me feed her cat while she was out of town once and I couldn’t spend more than 5 minutes in her apartment it smelled so bad and the air was so thick with god knows what. I wish I could say I was upset about her potential demise but that is the level at which I don’t like her. Lol.
So we’ll see what happens. It could take up to 5 days for me to start feeling really sick and that’s exactly the day I’m supposed to do my one day this week at work. I should know by then if she has COVID and if she does I’ll just quarantine myself regardless of how I feel. That’s the ethical thing to do, I think.
I feel like most of the bad things that have happened to me in my life are direct results of who I’m related to, lol. If this were to kill me (I know it won’t) it’d really just be fitting.
