Princess T is not feeling good Today and signs of COVID are so similar to so many other things, that even if you have a few symptoms, it's not crystal clear if you have it or not and Testing here is still way behind the curve. She has Migraines and gets nauseous from them, and then her Throat is sore from puking, so chances are it's that and not the Virus. But, I'm keeping a close Eye on any of us that have any freakin' symptoms anymore that remotely resemble those they say indicate an infection! She has no fever, but not everyone has a fever, she had a weird bald spot on her Tongue, where even her Blue Sports Drink didn't stain the patch, that was just weird. Our Hospitals are overwhelmed so I really don't want to preempt a visit prematurely unless my Maternal Alarm Bells ring.
Such was the case this Day after I'd just about had enough of him triggering her with his Old Fucker Mood swings over trifles. He wanted to tag along but he just wasn't Coping well, I don't know if he was overly tired or just being easily ruffled over nothing?! I was regretting not leaving him at Home. *LOL* But he has bad PTSD and loud bangs can trigger it, so Caregiver me had to ensure he was Okay with the Holiday Noises sounding rather Warlike, which puts him in a tormented Head Space of bad Memories of Wars he Served in! He handled most of the Bangs okay, with a few exceptions if they were too close and we had no idea they were going off as we drove by. People were setting their illegal Fireworks off in the most unlikely places!
I had threatened a couple times to just drop his Ass back off at Home and continue without him if he couldn't pull it together. He managed to pull it together and she forgives Grandpa because she knows he's Not Right in the Head anymore and she Loves him dearly, he's always been her Favorite. *LOL* I know, I know... I should be everyone's Favorite... but somebody has to be the Heavy in the Family and keep these fucking Ducks in a row, Right?! *Winks* Often Holidays are very difficult for those who suffer from Brain Damage or Mental Illness, so I'm kinda used to it being Sensory Overload for them. With them going to pieces easily during any Celebratory Event that overwhelms them and is just too much, even if you scale it way back for their benefit. We avoided Crowds even before Pandemic because The Man and Princess T just can't do Crowds, The Young Prince couldn't either... they have Anxiety or Panic Attacks in a crowded setting.
May your 4th of July not been too Weird... Dawn... The Bohemian
