So I ended up in a nhs isolation quarantine zone! What we presumed would be a simple malaria blood test turned into a full scale, red flag nightmare.
I was isolated for 2 days as staff donned their protective gear to take bloods to be sent away to test for Ebola, Lassa fever and other airborne diseases they thought I could be carrying. They all seemed a bit excited and also pretty scared!
It was fairly traumatic and worrying and nice to have leah in there with me on the first day to laugh, catch up and freak out together!
Experts and specialists kept flipping from really scary potential diseases to finally all agreeing that I could go home given my condition hadn’t worsened.
I left yesterday and am currently sleeping a lot and hoping to feel normal again soon!
