COVID-19

He/Him
It finally got me. Back at school teaching, and my kids have been dropping like flies with a cold but no one reported covid. A lot of teachers were out sick, but my symptoms were pretty mild and I chalked them up to fall allergies and a reaction to the smoke in the air, as I typically get hit really hard with head colds but this one was fairly moderate and manageable, so I pushed through. Saw my test kits in my cupboard tonight and decided to test myself despite not thinking I had covid as I've been generally ok, and that T line hit hard and dark immediately.

I feel awful that I didn't stay home from work this week despite feeling bad but with so many of my kids and other staff being out without covid being reported I thought it was just a head cold.

Ugh!
This is me right now. I had a scratchy throat and thought it was allergies but decided to do an antigen because my mum is going through chemo. The 2 lines showed up immediately. I was in such disbelief I took out the instructions to make sure that’s what it meant because I hadn’t done a test for so long. I feel fine really, I just hope to god I haven’t spread it to my family since I live with them. I’ve never had covid before so that’s why it added to the shock of the test result.
 
Well, the bad sis got me finally after two years of somehow avoiding it.

It's been fairly manageable aside from 24 hours where my throat felt like literal razor blades, which was awful. Outside of that it's mostly just a slightly grim head cold and feel like I should be fine by Monday.

Just gonna be like this every autumn now when the kids go back to school/universities start isn't it? Flop.

So Rona finally got me. My husband tested positive for it yesterday with a super dark line. I tested negative in the morning but had a faint line by the evening.

It’s been awful so far. Burning up and freezing cold at the same time. Constantly feeling like I’m going to throw up, fever dreams, dizziness.
It’s horrible isn’t it? I hope you feel better soon.
 
Looks like I might need some Lucozade because I feel ROUGH. I've woken up with a chill, aches and a heavy head. I tested and it isn't Covid but these were the initial symptoms I had when I first had it back in December and only tested positive for it on Christmas Day after a week of feeling like death!

Sigh, I expected as much given the change in weather and the fact I've been running on fumes lately.
 
Yours truly tested positive for Covid today. I guess it was unenviable. My fever surged passed 104 degrees Fahrenheit during the night. Thankfully it’s down to 101 but man, I feel like someone hit me continuously in the head with a brick. It all started with a sore throat. sigh
 
Welp! After how many years?? Looks like I finally got COVID. Ran out of test strips that I used to test my parents(they both have it with flu like symptoms). Luckily the only symptom I have is a sore throat. Will get tested tomorrow. Worst couple of weeks for this to happen now.

I wish you the best. I’m on day 3 now. Ugh. Sore throat started this off for me. I wonder if I have the Omicron variant as that reportedly starts with a sore throat. If this is the milder form of Covid, I hope I never find out what full-blown Covid feels like.
