The Masque of the Covid Breath: Testing Positive (+ Covid Diary)
Well, it had to happen eventually. A week ago, someone I live with tested Covid positive, and despite my best efforts (testing every day), today I finally succumbed. That dreaded second line on the RAT showed up bright and red.
It’s a decent effort, of course… making it until December 2022 for my first bout with the thing. Currently, I am a bit feverish, but there are no other symptoms.
Subsequent Covid Diary:
Day II: Woke up with pain in left leg. Nose somewhat runny.
Day III: Pains seem to have gone down, but fever back with a vengeance.
Day IV: Best day thus far. Appetite still minimal, and throat and mouth dry, but nothing nasty.
Day V: Not bad either. Some sneezing.
Day VI: Down to status of hay-fever.
Day VII: Appetite and everything else back to normal.
Day VIII: Slight runny nose returned.
Day IX: Same as yesterday. Tested negative on RAT.
Day X: Done with this thing.
