My Personal Covid Symptoms Experience
Worst sickness ever…
If you haven’t had the pleasure of being introduced, to the Covid-19 virus attack on your immune system yet, consider yourself lucky! Since the announcement of the start of it’s massive spread, I’ve had a long history of negative rapid test. This applies as well for my household.
Routines like buying plastic utensils, quarantine measures, and wiping surfaces around my home with bleach constantly helped us to honestly make it this far healthy and Covid-19 free. We wore our masks just about everywhere while in public. The children were required to wear them, just to attend school.
I’ve worked with the general public on jobs, to continue to bring in income. Most times, masks were required in common areas, until the end of my shifts. Reluctantly, I witnessed many other coworkers have to call in due to Covid symptoms and positive test results of someone in the household.
Recently, I experienced my very first whiff of Covid-19. Though, I’m not sure which variant I was attacked by. I’d like to describe the symptoms experienced, that made me feel like I was going to die. It’s so different hearing about it all on the news, versus experiences with the virus for yourself.
Day 1 of my Covid Journey
A random Migraine , is the best I can describe the throbbing I suddenly felt in my head. The pressure was so intense , even my eyes began to hurt. This led me to pop an Ibuprofen, and immediately seek rest for relief of pain
After waking up from a needed nap, my head still felt the same and I knew something was wrong. Personally, I decided to eat fruits, drink water, and indulge ginger teas seeking relief
Day 2 of my Covid Journey
Unfortunately day two, things got more interesting and worse. I was experiencing this tingling feeling of chills, while running low grade fever for 24 hours straight. It was horrible. Struggling to keep up with household duties, and work was the worse. Hospitals encouraged those with mild symptoms to stay home, if possible to avoid further exposure to the virus. This I didn’t argue with, as I hate Emergency Rooms unless absolutely necessary. I continued my best to stay hydrated, and ate soups though I really didn’t have much of an appetite.
Day 3 of my Covid Journey
By day three, I couldn’t get out of the bed to use the restroom, without some type of body aches. The bottom of my feet, felt sore with every step taken. I felt faint, so my pillow and I became best friends despite missing 3 days of work knowing I’d fall behind on bills. Thankfully, Covid utility assistance in my state covered a few bills as I eventually explained my dilemma as a sick and single mother. Day 3 my temperature rose and fell with continuous body chill, and now a sudden cough. It wasn’t even like me to not crave a cigarette, my chest was so sore from coughing.
Light at the end of the tunnel
Day 4 , I was full of strength again as if nothing had ever happened. Of course, mandates required me to remain in quarantine for up to 10 days. I agreed with mandate, as I wouldn’t wish the type of misery, I experienced on my worst enemy! Hydration was my number one priority, along with household sanitation, and healthy hygiene procedures. I am grateful, I have recovered. Yet, I’m more cautious than ever about my families well being. We will began to have order pick ups from grocery retailers, and order most of what we need online. This prevents unnecessary exposure to the public.
My children have begun virtual classes from home, and I have transferred to remote work. I hope the new arrangements, work better for us.
