Saturday night I started to feel a little down. Tired, scratchy throat, a little bit of congestion. I’m in Central Texas so it must be the allergies, right? Everything here is covered in pollen it has to be allergies.
So I took a Benadryl and went to bed early.
Normally, I sleep great. 7 solid hours – and I fall asleep fast. But Saturday night was tough. I kept waking up, with chills and body aches.
Sunday Morning I felt terrible. Lethargic, foggy, zero motivation. All I did was sit on the couch and scroll on social media, or sleep. Oh, I also took 4 showers. I like to shower when I’m sick. I think part of me thinks I can wash away the sickness, but in reality, it’s probably just the humidity that I like.
Sunday night I got a text from a friend that their kid had tested positive. That’s when I knew. I opened one of the free Covid tests I got in the mail, and my wife took the swab and stuck in my nose. I think she might have touched my brain she went so far back.
At first, there was nothing on the little Covid test strip, and then a very faint line appeared.
For 2 years and 2 months, I was so very careful.
Now it’s Monday morning and I have a little bit more energy, enough at least to write this update.
Let’s hope this is a mild case. I’ve had both vaccines and a booster. Go Team Moderna!
Things I’m Loving
That I didn’t lose my sense of taste. I’m drinking a very strong cup of Peets right now, and for some reason, it tastes extra good.
Also, the ‘Rona is great for weight loss. Im sure it’s not a safe way to lose weight, but it does the job. Stay hydrated everyone!
