4 Things I Learned From Being a Newcomer
My first week as a new Reddit user was filled with highs and lows.
I was feeling really good about my job, the community, and my family.
Then my friends and I started to get really sick.
We were in a hospital, and I was diagnosed with COVID-19.
It was a scary time, and we needed to be with family.
But the hardest part was deciding to get tested.
The process took about 10 hours.
It felt like we were all going to die, but we weren’t.
At one point, we all agreed we should go to a doctor together and I decided to ask the first question, “Do you think I am infected?”
The nurse asked me, “Are you sure?”
I said, “Absolutely.”
We got tested at a hospital in the middle of the night, and it was clear we were positive.
But we weren’s a little confused, because we didn’t have much information.
It took a while for everyone to figure out what to do.
The next day, we woke up, and the nurse had told us that we had a 90% chance of surviving the coronavirus, so we were confident.
But it was still a big leap to make, and even then, I was worried.
We did not have enough money to travel for a month, and at that point, the virus was really spreading, and there was not much information about how to prevent it.
The nurses, my friends, and me decided that we would do whatever we could to help.
I told them that we didn´t have a choice.
They said, ok, you need to help us.
So I decided I was going to go to the hospital with my friends to do what they could to try and prevent further spread.
My first few days in the hospital were difficult, but they taught me a lot about caring for people, and also helped me understand that it is okay to cry, to cry on the outside, and to cry inside.
The hardest part of my first week was when my mom and I couldn´t eat, and she was unable to help me.
I cried on the inside, and that is when I realised how much I had lost.
We tried everything we could, including calling her, but she couldnt understand.
We even tried going to a different hospital.
It wasn´t a good day, but at least I had my mom there.
My friend came over and hugged me.
My mom cried a lot when she saw me.
After a few days, we went to a hospital where my friend was the nurse.
It really helped us feel more comfortable and understand that we could have a lot of help.
It also made us think about how we could help each other out.
When I asked if I could stay, she said, yes, of course, we would.
So we decided to take care of the other patients in our ward.
This was really important for me because it meant I could see a lot more patients, and maybe we could save a lot lives.
After all, I couldn’t leave my friends there anymore.
My friends and we helped each other a lot, and in return, they helped us a lot.
My time in the ICU was hard, but I felt like I had a lot to give.
I felt more connected with everyone.
There were lots of times where I thought, I´m not going to be able to go home again, and so I cried inside.
That is the hardest moment for me, but there are also times when I just want to give thanks to God.
After being in the intensive care unit for about two weeks, I decided that I needed to come home and be alone.
I didn´ t want to be around my family anymore, so I started sleeping on the floor of the hospital.
I woke up one morning and I saw my mother and my sister.
I said hello to them, and they asked me what happened.
I answered that my brother was in the ER and I had to go and see him.
They told me to come back later and get him checked out.
I came back a couple of days later and my brother´s condition was better.
They put him in the same bed with a CT scan.
The CT scan showed that he had a COVID infection.
After his CT scan, I told him that I was sorry, but my brother needed to go.
He said that I had helped him out and I wanted to give him some advice, so that he could be okay.
I just wanted to thank him for all he did, and thanked him for his support.
After two weeks in the ward, I came home and I found my parents and brother.
They were all happy, and excited to see me.
They have been really supportive since I got back.
It´s been a big transition for us, and since I was in my own room, we have been talking about going to college, so hopefully we can get there
