We had a bit of a scare this morning.
Mom woke with a headache.
Some people report headache as the first symptom of COVID 19.
After breakfast I began to feel very ill. I was nauseous and had diarrhea. All my energy drained from my body.
Some people report gastrointestinal issues as their first symptoms. All COVID 19 sufferers report loss of energy.
We both rested through the morning into early afternoon.
We both feel fine now.
Mostly. I am still tired. I have since mid-February had this sort of low-grade feeling of lung/upper respiratory discomfort. That’s a little more intense today. I’m not coughing as much and, in fact, my cough has gradually diminished over the last few days.
But we’re fine. No aches, no fever, no chills, a reasonable amount of energy, mom’s headache went away after a dose of Tylenol, and I felt better after resting. We’re fine.
But it does go to show how anxious I am. A tiny hint at illness and I’m certain that we’re going to die, including my dog because who’s going to take care of him when I’m gone?
Let’s hope we both wake up tomorrow feeling well.
