My sister got sick the morning after they went to Ankara. She was running a fever and her digestive system was completely out of whack. I freaked out and was about to go to Ankara when she told me to stay put just in case it might be COVID-19. Oh boy! She has had the Chinese vaccine so, the effectivity is somewhat lower and she works at a bank and she has chronic liver condition and... and...and. My mind suddenly switched to overdrive and I was thinking of extreme scenarios.
Then, I had a totally sleepless night, then I stopped exercising, then I slept during the day and fell of the "watch what you're eating" wagon.
Today she felt better enough to go outside and visit her in laws. She thinks she possibly had some sort of a food poisoning. That was only one of my scenarios which I had quickly dismissed.
I love my sister to the end of the galaxy and back. I cannot stand her getting sicker and weaker for whatever reason and I cannot even imagine outliving her. This is my biggest fear in life and even she catches a simple cold or tells me she has a headache, I become a mess. Even typing this, I feel terrible.
Although I am not totally relaxed, since she felt better, I felt better too and went to the seaside. Bought a cup of coffee and went back to reading my book in the shade which I had been ignoring lately. I also exercised today and that made me feel better too. So, it was a nicer day.
My dad was the biggest worrier in our family and he only lived up to my current age. I used to make fun of him and roll my eyes because he was such a worrier. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, I guess.
