I haven’t neglected you. I tested positive for COVID-19 and it was a horrible experience. I couldn’t gather the energy to do anything. Some of the smallest things like laundry or watching something was impossible. I spent the first few days bed bound, in and out of sleep, drinking water and going to the toilet.
