So on a more serious note, about three weeks ago I was feeling pretty crappy, and went over to the hospital to get a test for COVID 19. I received a call the next day, saying I had tested positive for the virus, and it really shook me. While I am feeling much better now, and have fully recovered I thought I would channel my energy into writing about how I felt from day to day, and how this effected my life.
So my roommate was sick with a low grade fever, and a cough. He said it was ‘no big deal,’ and while normally it would not be, we are clearly in the middle of a pandemic. Many people who have tested positive with COVID have shown no symptoms whatsoever, and I wanted to take precautions.
I kept my distance, went about my own business, yet a week later I ended up in bed with aches and chills, and a fever plus a cough. This lasted about three days before
My aches worsened, but my fever thankfully did not last very long. I ended up sleeping a ton, and ordering soup 🙂
My fever soon went away. However, I still had aches, a cough and felt very sluggish and did not want to leave my bed. I would get tired walking up my steps to my apartment, and my legs felt like I had just finished an intense workout. It took me a few moments to catch my breath. This lasted for several more days before I decided to get tested.
The hospital confirmed my case was ‘mild’, and I was sent home the next day. At this point, it felt tiring to lift my arms, and I was completely worn out.
I am feeling better, and trying to get back into the swing of things. I hope those with COVID are beginning to recover while those who are not sick are staying safe.
