I Have The Coronavirus And It Has Ruined Thanksgiving For My Family

I can’t think of a worse time to catch the virus than around the holidays. And yet, here we are.

I was hospitalized last night and diagnosed with COVID-19. I am as miserable as it gets, but now realizing that Thanksgiving is a week away, I am even more upset.

My husband, two children, and mother-in-law were all surrounding me during my time of falling ill, which has put us all in quarantine.

We all go together on Thanksgiving with family out of town each year, and now no one can thanks to me.

Before I got married, I spent Thanksgivings alone. That, or I worked.

My family “disowned” me for religious differences leaving me to fend for myself.

So since I have been with my husband, I have so enjoyed having a family and support system during the holidays.

But this year, tradition is coming to a halt because of me, and I feel more horrible about that than my body does from this virus. (Well, maybe. This virus flipping sucks).

I don’t know what the rest of this year holds or what it is going to look like, but be safe around your family, make the right choice, whether it is staying home or visiting with family safely. And please, cherish the moments.
