Well, I certainly wasn’t expecting it to happen, but it did. After all, why should I be immune. Yes, I am double vaxxed. Yes, I am double boosted. Yes I mostly mask in public. I guess the key word is “mostly”.
It started on Thursday. I woke up with a headache. Didn’t think much about it because sometimes when I sleep hard I wake up this way. Usually after moving around a bit it disappears. It didn’t. Took a Tylenol and it helped.
Friday came and I added body ache to the mix. At first I just chalked it to go the weed pulling I did the day before. Still didn’t give much thought to what was happening.
To sweeten the pot, let’s add a sore throat to the mix. Some Halls helped with that and it was gone by Saturday. One final thing I need to add to this is a dry hacking cough. This I found most irritating because it seemingly would just start. Now. mix all of these together and what do you get?
Could it be? Do I have it? I decided to sleep on it and see how I felt on Saturday.
Woke up Saturday not feeling much better. It was time to test. I didn’t want to go to church that afternoon if I were infected. Got out my home test kit. Did the swabbing. Waited the 15 minutes and sure enough there were the two lines. I have COVID!. Great. Just what needed. Well, church was out for that afternoon.
I have an appointment with my ENT on Monday. I will call and cancel that. Kathy and I had plan to attend a lunch honoring new retirees on Tuesday. Won’t be going. Ned has an appointment with the vet on Thursday. Need to reschedule.
Nothing I could do now except to ride this out. Felt a bit better when I woke up On Sunday. It didn’t last. As I got up to get some breakfast for Kathy and me it hit. I don’t know where it came from, but I wasn’t sure if I could make it from the kitchen to the bathroom in time. I did. Don’t remember the last time I felt so lousy. Sunday morning was really bad.
I left the bathroom feeling weak and a bit wobbly. I told Kathy I was skipping breakfast and going back to bed. My clothes were soaked, but I didn’t care. I crawled under the covers and slept for four hours. When I got up it was like I was a completely different person. Was that a turning point?
Each day now I am feeling a bit better. I can only imagine how I would have felt had I not been vaccinated and boosted.
It creeps in takes hold Aches, lethargy, nagging cough Test confirms - COVID
