Two weeks ago I felt a bit like the flu and two coworkers went home with fevers. Turned out we all got covid-19, one of the with the British mutation, so we others surely got it too. I went home the next day after a positive rapid test and got a PCR test the same day.
My partner and I had to stay at home in quarantine for 10 days, but I filled up the fridge after the doctor visit, so we got by without asking our neighbors to do our shopping.
The next day I felt well enough to sew a pinafore dress for work, but after that I started getting fevers around 103, runny nose and a bad cough. I also felt really weak and could just lie on the sofa watching endless episodes of Criminal Intent. I just hobbled around between sofa, toilet and bed. I had a bad stomach and nearly no appetite and everything I ate made me feel queasy. This lasted more than a week.
Finally the fever went down, but I still have a bit of elevated temperatures every day and am still coughing like mad. I can eat again and regained a bit of my appetite, but still feel unwell after two weeks with this disease. Thankfully my boyfriend is asymptomatic or he did not get it. And I never lost my sense of taste and smell, which also makes me happy.
The last days I started wearing perfume again. Something simple like Roma, Ninfeo Mio and Cristalle Eau Verte.
Now that we don’t have to stay isolated any more, I will try a short walk outside today. But no work, until my temperatures are normal again and I don’t cough my lungs out.
If this was a milder form of Covid, I would not wish anyone a more severe version of it.
