So, another good post about the many consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic that struck the world. Unfortunately, this deadly COVID virus has taken many lives. Of course, we all now know that the disease strikes groups of more vulnerable people, including the elderly (people over 70 years of age), which includes myself.
In my opinion, it was bad enough to get old in the first place! Fortunately, I have been blessed with a fairly good run of health. So, my only serious problem was a “mini stroke” six or seven years ago. I recovered very quickly after a few days of testing at Halifax General Hospital. Apart from a daily pill cocktail, I’ve been in relatively good health since.
Usual aches and pains
As with most people my age, I am carefully looked after by the “National Health System.” My doctors give me regular blood tests and are very good at caring for me. I, like most people, try to stay active. including my brain. Computers are a great help for me, and I actually run my companies’ web sites. Including here at batteriesontheweb and our sister company, pellonautocentre.com.
Importantly, I still play a big part in the running of the whole business. This was when the COVID virus came in like a hammer. So at first, I didn’t think we took the disease seriously! Of course, we were initially told that the virus was just like a cold or the flu. However, we soon realised things would be very different. Like other people in my age bracket, we were told that we were the most vulnerable group.
responsibly, Your Health
I decide to stay clear of other people and stick to the government’s advice about “social distancing ” and generally mixing with other people outside my family circle. So, this included going to the local shops.
My garage, Pellon Tyre and Autocentre, became a victim of a government ruling about MOT testing. Ultimately, this was the bad news that caused me the most stress. As a result, I am affected in ways that are, of course, hidden. Stress and other issues can be killers, and this pandemic will show how this will affect people as time goes by.
Of course, there are millions of people in my age group who are very ill due to various disabilities and other conditions, and I wish them the best of luck! So, as they say, “stay safe.”
