With COVID-19 appearing to have taken over the planet and absolutely nothing else seemingly mattering to anyone anymore, I am struggling to find anything blogworthy.

As with some of my previous posts, for personal and historical purposes, I’ll give a brief summary of my current situation…

Before I start, sorry if the below comes across as me wallowing in self-pity. That is not my intention. I can’t stand defeatism.


I am aware that millions of people have been affected in one way or another by this outbreak and hundreds of thousands are unwell as a result. Many more have been told not to turn up to work – despite being fit and well – therefore receiving no income.

I am not infected. I have a nice house where I can self-isolate and continue to receive an income. Forgetting all my other health issues, I am one of the lucky ones…

  • Claire is back at work and I am still off work. I am jealous she is able to do her job and I can’t. I also miss her.
  • I cannot get downstairs without supervision, so have no choice but to lie in bed all day and all night. I feel like I am in hospital.
  • The television in the bedroom is well and truly fudged, so I can’t even watch that.

  • I was forced to use the commode yesterday. A ghastly ordeal and one which I had to do alone.
  • Since returning to bed from using the commode, my left shoulder/upper arm has been giving me discomfort.
  • I don’t believe the aches are from the site of the original break, but I am really scared that I have caused damage and set my recovery back months.
  • There is not a cat in hell’s of me even considering going for an x ray. Due to the fact I am classed as ‘at risk’, it would be crazy to leave the house.
  • As for going to A&E – I might as well French kiss an infected coronavirus patient and start digging myself a hole in the nearest cemetery.
  • Thankfully, my dad is a retired GP and believes that my complaint is muscular, although wants me to contact my own GP if things do not improve.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
