I started this as a comment to Snake and due to not being able to post pics in comments, decided to share with all.
Yes, I was the dummy for not wearing my PPE, especially during winter months when our building is sealed up. This is what my filters look like before and after.
I can only imagine what my lungs look like after a few months of that.
As is, I am using the filters now, I am coughing up gobs of grab and my O2 saturation and pulse are showing improvement weekly. (I have a bracelet that measures both and BP hourly. Docs orders.) I am getting better, I only worry about the longterm and what is buried so deep in my lungs, I’ll never get it out.
Talking about stories, T and G are stalled in my head right now. Not happy with where the muse is trying to take the story.
But I will get back at it and more soon enough. As soon as I can sit for five minutes without hacking up some alien lifeform, that is.
