Between The Pit and The Pendulum
I was hoping that my family was exposed back in February to Covid-19 when everyone except for me was really, really sick, but my father’s Antibody Test came back Negative. Now, I feel like that character in Poe’s story, The Pit and the Pendulum every day I go to work. I feel like even if I was highly proactive, I would not escape it. The virus, God forbid, will find its way into my home, and I slip into panic-mode, waiting for the pendulum to slice me and my family apart. It’s a struggle now to keep it together and try to survive.
