It took an intense bout of chemo and antibiotics to quell my fever, but I’ve stopped getting sicker by the day.
I’ve got a few months left to live.
That was the moment when I knew I was in good hands.
I’m a little surprised, however, that it took a while for me to see this as a good time to go back to work.
A few months ago, I had the virus, too, and I was feeling a bit of a lack of focus and a sense of hopelessness.
But I was so focused on staying healthy, I didn’t know how I would feel about returning to work in an Ebola hot spot.
I wasn’t ready for the prospect of being the first Ebola patient to work there.
But then I got tested, and after about two weeks of tests, I started feeling a lot better.
I thought I might have to take a break, and then the virus started to fade.
The virus was gone, and my fever was down.
I was able to return to work without having to get a flu shot, and even if I did have to get one, it would probably be in the next few weeks.
But it felt great to get back to normal.
My life is still a bit unsettled.
The only thing that worries me now is that I’ll be tested again.
What I do remember is that on my return from work, I felt a little bit worse, but the virus was still there.
When I went home, I took a bath in the tub and I took some deep breaths.
Then I washed my face with soap and water, then took some sleeping pills.
I ate a little breakfast, and got dressed for work.
I did a lot of light exercise, too.
The last few days have been extremely busy.
I still feel anxious, and if I’m not feeling well, I’m very anxious to be feeling well again.
But when I’m feeling well and I’m on my way to being home, that’s when I feel my energy is coming back.
I get a lot out of being at home, too: I don’t have to worry about running out of food, for example, or being hungry.
I just have to have a lot more energy.
I love being home.
I don`t think there’s a day when I don�t like to be at home.
The most important thing to me is being able to go home and enjoy my family and friends.
I also think I’ve had a lot to celebrate this year.
I had a little baby.
My daughter has been in the NICU for two weeks.
And I`ve had a really good pregnancy.
I have two daughters and three grandchildren, so I`m not the only one with babies.
I`d like to see more babies in the coming months.
My wife is pregnant again, and her pregnancy is going well, too — they have a baby boy.
But even though I am home, it still feels like I`ll never go back.
In the past, my fever has been low, but when I get sick, I get fever again, even if it doesn`t look like it.
I think I’ll have to wait until after my daughter`s first birthday.
And the last time I was sick, my body was a little sicker than it normally is.
I can`t believe it, but that was actually the first time I had fever since the virus.
I didn`t know if it would happen again.
I feel like I have to live with that, because I want to be healthy for my family.
That`s my goal.
I want my kids to have the best start to their lives, too; I`re hoping to have them on track to be happy and healthy before they turn 5.
And if I can get them healthy, they can have the kind of life they want to have.
I wish I could just go back home and be back in the normal world, but at the same time, I want the kids to know that the virus can`s not going to stop me from enjoying my family, enjoying my life, and enjoying the people I love.
I am grateful that I`s back home, because this is really the only place where I can really be myself, and where I have the most of my friends.
It`s the kind in which you can just go on with your day.
The thing that bothers me about it is that people don`s thinking about my body when they’re thinking about the virus: “Why are you so anxious?” or “What is the virus?
Is it contagious?
What is the risk?
What can you do?”
Or people don’t ask me: “Are you feeling well?” or, “What’s the virus doing to you?”
And that kind of bothers me.
It just feels like everyone is looking at you
