So, we are a week into 2021. How are you feeling. Before I reflect on 2020, let me tell you how my 2021 actually started.
I ended the year with Covid. Yep, I’ve been in quarantine all week so far. I’ve tried not to complain much because there are others that have it much worse than I do.
I started feeling bad on Christmas evening with a cough and itchy throat. Over the next few days I thought I was developing a sinus infection. I never showed a fever, but I kept going hot and cold.
So, I go to work thinking I’ll just shake it off. That morning it was under 40°, but, I was sweating like crazy. Finally, I was convinced to go to the doctor. Again, I really thought it was my sinuses acting up again. Low and behold, I had a positive Covid test result. That threw me for a loop. Before even pulling out of the parking lot, I called the necessary people.
Yes, I got a little scared once I sat down. Still I couldn’t let it worry me. I took each symptom as they came and rolled with it. What where my symptoms? Running hot/cold, sore/itchy throat, severe headaches, fatigue (more than normal), eye pain, body aches and a loss of appetite. As you can see symptoms were many, but some different from others.
Do I know who got it from or how? I’m not 100% certain, but I’m pretty sure who, when and where I received it. The person I believe I got it from never went to the doctor even after a family member was tested positive for Covid. Well a few days later “they” started coughing. Then three days later I started coughing. No, “they” never went to the doctor. Still walking around and possibly spreading it.
This is what makes me mad, you came in contact, but you’re so worried about a job that will post your position the same week you die. So, you just walk around and possibly spreading it to others. At this point in the pandemic, how can we be so clueless and careless?
I may not always agree with what various government agencies may say, but, the science speaks volumes. The virus is real and we all need to take it serious. Will I take the vaccine? Probably not. Not enough proven facts just yet. I’m just saying. Everyone has to make a personal decision on that one. Still, everyone should be taking the necessary precautions everyday to help us get rid of this virus.
I’m going in a few days to get retested. Hopping for good news. In the mean time, protect yourself. Stay safe.
