A retraction and an apology

In the thread @peregrina2000 opened for discussion on Coronavirus I used the word selfish, it wasn't my intention to hurt or upset other posters, but I realised later that with this subject it is not one I can use such emotive words, lots of pilgrims are feeling anguish over their decisions, me included. I hope we all make the right choices, I'm still thinking of going myself and maybe I allowed my own internal disquiet to spill onto the forum.

having horrendous nightmares about this myself. With a long history of respiratory problems I could be in serious difficulties! Mind you I had the last rites 3 times as a child and God willing will be 82 in July. Just tottered in having done my 10k steps for the day (in two stages) and feeling very shaky and a bit scared. I have Meniere's disease and very dependent on medication. Guess who didn't take his noontime medication? Result> The wobbles! I think this forum is pretty open about the foibles of its members as long as they are honest about them! I shall be carrying standby meds from now on AND using BOTH pacer poles.

:)

Keep on truckin and Buen Camino!

Isca-camigo, please do not let this upset you too much.
Buen Camino.
Thanks.
I am getting updates everyday from two of my Camigos who I will meet in Braga on the 2nd April. One started in Bayonne yesterday and will drop down to Braga after reaching Santiago, the other started yesterday as well in Ciudad Real on the Camino Manchego, he will walk to Braga via connecting Camino routes, they both have a type of Spanish gallows humour which takes no prisoners so I will be forced to get over it😆
Buen Camino Peregrinos

I suffer from what the Spanish call 'un elefante en una cristalería' syndrome, my intentions are in a good place I just get a bit clumsy in how I carry them out.
Buen Camino KF
