You have a test stick that you have to run over your tonsils either side for 10 seconds (a lifetime) which makes you gag, then up your nose either side which makes your eyes water and feel like you want to sneeze. Yucky!
Tuesday I still felt the same, but all my symptoms were manageable. The main issue for me was being oh-so-tired, I was in bed and asleep by 8 pm most nights over the holidays - what a shame to feel ill over Christmas and not just me all the family - what a shit Christmas! The next morning I got my results - positive, I wasn't a fake after all - ha ha!
Each day I got slightly better, but kept myself indoors & isolated from everyone. I also missed my grandsons 2nd birthday, couldn't see him even from afar! Such a shame and we will have a party for him in the future. Poor thing didn't have hardly any presents, no cake (my daughter was going to make him one) no cards and no kisses 😞 New year's eve was the same, very quiet and not much happening, we were all tucked up in bed early and didn't see the New Year in either.
Two weeks on and I'm feeling MUCH better, more like my old self AND my taste and smell has come back, not fully but about 80% so I'm sure that will be back up to scratch soon. There's not much going on at this time of the year, so I've been holed up inside since my 10 day isolation finished. I've only ventured out to Tesco and the Post Office. I must say it's a funny feeling to actually go out, I wanted to tell everyone "I've had Coronavirus and I'm okay" but as many people haven't been so lucky I kept my mouth well and truly shut!
So what does the future hold? I'm longing for having the vaccine and according to the UK Vaccine Calculator mine will be due early June, quite frankly it can't come quick enough. What are your thoughts on the jab, will you be having it?
I'm open minded about whether or not a ski holiday will be happening late in the season, that will depend on how the next months go, but I can always live in hope 🤞
Have you any experience with Covid19? I do hope you've not been hit too hard by it and wonder if I may have given you a little hope if you are unfortunate to get it!
Until Thursday, stay safe and well and at home.
Bye bye for now. X
