Short Sweet. Brother, Bothered, but Beating Corona

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

Outside! Just a little disoriented by it all. I have been cooped up too long.

It has been a frustrating journey back to wellness but I think I am over the worst parts. Most of my taste is back, but I have limited lung capacity, or so It feels like. Last January when I had similar symptoms, it took a while to get my lungs back to normal. This is not a good way to get started if I plan on walking 50 miles in one go. I only walked 4 miles today and it took a lot out of me. Hopefully I can turn it around sooner than later.

Weight loss hasn’t been too bad. I lost 15 pounds since December 14th. I will refocus on losing weight as soon as I am off quarantine.

I lost a bowling ball of weight in a month and a few days.

Short post today. I am short on energy.

I do invite you to listen to services tomorrow at

If you have any question about my beliefs, feel free to ask. I am open for Bible studies.

Well, see you tomorrow!

  1. I’m so sorry I’m behind on reading post due to dealing with my own drama.

    If you feel short of breathe, you are. Probably moreso than you realize.

    Please be cautious and let yourself fully recover!!

    1. I am sorry things are not going well over there.

      Deep breaths in and out have been the focus. I don’t want shallow!

      Thank you for the well wishes and advice, Bubbles!

      1. Thx.
        I’ve had lung issues for literally my entire life. It makes me fear what covid could do to me but also have extreme empathy for people experiencing issues for the first time.

        I hope you all enjoy full recoveries!!

      1. We are pretty much staying home again. We do essential shopping trips in quiet hours of the day to stay away from people. Wearing mask is mandatory for indoors like shops here. Working from home and office alternative weeks. So in all, we are all well and kind of adapting to the current way of living. Energy bills went up a bit but still reasonable.
