Covid Chronicles Candidly

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here. Perhaps I should call it Brother’s Settlement. There are a lot of folks involved.


Pothead? No. Absolutely not.

Hot head? Well, yeah, a little. I am kinda fiesty.

One thing is for certain. There is a “pan” demic.

My family has Covid. Our symptoms include fever, chest pain, runny noses and sore throats.

We have plenty of supplies and it is time to wait it out.

    Proverbs 4:20. His word is always the antidote. Look forward to reading your testimony. Blessings to you Benjamin and your household.

    Sorry to hear the ‘rona gotcha. Guess I’ll have to postpone my visit to the settlement. Look after yourselves, praying it passes quickly.

    According to your picture that would be kettlehead since you are holding a kettle and not a pot. 😇😂

    Ahh, this virus. Take care, dear friend. It is time to get upgraded and get those antibodies by Killing that virus. My family got upgraded in September! A speedy recovery to all of you. Get well soon💙💚💚💙

        Well then January is not a good month!

        We drank plenty of coconut water when we got infected. I loved that. And you know, we were home isolated with each person locked in a separate room. So, we used a messaging app to tease each other. That was also fun. But again our symptoms were mild.
        How are you feeling now?

          Yesterday great. Today, shortness of breath, congestion and overall, inflamed joints. The joint pain is the worst and 3 of 4 of us had that symptom

        Bucharest, Romania. And I had Covid-19 at the beginning of December 2020. Luckily it was diagnosed on time and got away only with flu-like symptoms. I really hope that will be the case with you guys, too.

        1. The Storyteller says:

          Nice…. The Paris of the East, Bucharest. I think the surrounding country would be worthy of experiencing for sure!

          I am certain I had this before, exactly a year ago and it was many times worse. At the moment I have flu like symptoms. My son has had difficulty breathing but did way better last night.

          Thank you for your encouragement, Jo.

    Out of curiosity, did anyone get back pain? My back hurt like hell for the first 2 days the second time I had covid and some of my friends had the same thing. I do hope you all get well soon!

    Sorry to hear you and your family were stricken with it! Hope you are feeling better. 🙂

    Love you punny pandemic take. Sometimes it is hard to find humor in situations like that. There has been so much gloom and doom.
