"As if surviving covid wasn’t enough for this poop sandwich of a year!" the 41-year-old wrote.

"Well, I got my stitches out from drying that wine glass, that went well. Then I recovered from my very first staph infection for no reason (cry for help?) (right knee was lonely?) so I thought I’d fracture my ankle!”

"Later tonight I’m gonna climb inside a raw chicken and see if I can’t check out what salmonella’s like!" she joked.

"2020 is the gift that keeps on giving."

Pink went on to explain how she fractured her ankle.

"I was actually running down the stairs trying to see the Christmas star!” she wrote.

“Ha! Turns out it’s not until the 21st. Happy holidays everyone! Who wants a Negroni!"

Pink shared in April this year how terrifying it was to test positive for Covid-19.

In an Instagram Live interview with author and yoga instructor Jen Pastiloff, Pink revealed how she'd been self-isolating with her two children Willow, nine, and Jameson, three, and husband Carey Hart when both she and her son began experiencing symptoms.

“We have been really, really sick. My three-year-old, Jameson, has had the worst of it. I've had many nights where I've cried and I've never prayed more in my life," she said.

“At one point I heard myself saying, 'I thought they promised us our kids would be OK.' And it's not guaranteed. There's no one that is safe from this. Jameson's been really, really sick.”

“It's been a different roller coaster for both of us,” Pink said, adding that her son’s symptoms were mostly fever, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and fatigue.

“All the things that scare the bejeezus out of you as a mama.”

The star’s own symptoms included chills, fatigue and nausea, before progressing to respiratory issues fuelled by her asthma. She said that things became so bad, she was forced to use a nebuliser to help her breathe for “the first time in 30 years”.

“It got really, really scary, I'm not gonna lie,” she said. “Just when you think you're better, something else happens.”
