In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.
Nice date, right? I think I chose an auspicious date to finally break the news. Joke.
I was tested positive on 6 November 2021 for COVID-19.
What a life, right? What a life.
I have too many sins, that is why I have this disease.
It is a great opportunity for me to work on myself as a Muslim.
And I have had the time to refocus; sorted out my priorities.
And I even created a manifest of sorts! I hope I can achieve that balance I seek.
Now it is all about executing but COVID-19 is aggressive. Well, actually in my case, it is more passive aggressive. It creeps up on me and then disappears and then creeps up on me and then disappears again.
I think I have a knack for making difficult things look easy. I don’t think people understand this. They think I have a wonderful life now.
Well, I do have it better than most and I am grateful.
But I should not have to look pitiful all the time, right? I do not think that is a good look on me.
I do not neccessarily feel the need to appear strong all the time. I am only human. But I think there are people out there with worse COVID-19 infections and have lost their beloved to the virus so let me just recover quietly and not be dramatic about it.
So yeah just wanted to mention my COVID+ status as a memory, which is going to stay with me.
And Allah is Ar-Raheem, The Most Merciful. – MM
