Anjana Rangan Instagram - This is the last selfie i took, before testing positive for Covid. Its been 14 days since i fell sick .. more than the sickness itself.. these 14 days was gruelling mentally. The first 3 days were awful. The fever,body pain and tiredness was something i have experienced never before. But slowly i got better. My health was getting better and better every single day. But my mental health wasnt that great.. as every single day passed, i was becoming more and more sad, felt bored and had nothing to do. Though it was the time for me to rest, all i could think about was the fact that i had to be like this for a fortnight. Tried painting, tried watching movies, series, tried everything possible to distract myself.. but nothing worked. I was at my loneliest self, not being able to see, talk or hug anyone esply my baby. I became aware that i was losing it. So much frustration that i had no one to actually talk to .. My husband was busy taking care of cooking, handling work at home, and taking care of R and also work outside, that he hardly had time or energy to talk to me. Though i shud have been extremely grateful and loving for whatever he was doing..my frustration was just building up. I kept complaining of having no time for myself before.. now i had all the time in the world but i cudnt enjoy one bit of it. Such is life! My heart was outside while I was trapped inside. I am not able to put in words, how i felt. Beginning of the year , all the work plans I had came to a standstill, Already strained relationships became even more strained, cudnt reach out to ppl to tell them how i feel, longest time without my baby.. With just couple of clothes to wear, no energy to even make myself look decent enough for myself.. no mood to keep myself active, I have been at my worst for the last 14 days. It will take days for me to rebuild myself , to look and feel confident. I was dreading this and dodged Covid for 2 years being extremely careful and safe, but it finally got me, catching me at my worst. *Contd on comment..*
