I haven’t posted in a couple of days. After managing to make it two years without COVID, I have managed to catch it twice in as many months. The odd part is that the two episodes have differed in symptoms.

The first time consisted of large amounts of congestion and coughing that lasted eleven days. I had no fever and COVID tests came up negative, but I lost my sense of taste and smell.

This latest bout had me with a mild stuffy nose and cough, no fever, and only lasted four days. I was so tired, I couldn’t stay awake. I wasn’t sure that I had COVID until my wife got sick, took a test, and it was positive. So I took one too, and what do you know, it was positive. Then yesterday morning, I woke up without a sense of smell or taste. This second bout with COVID has been MUCH milder than the first. The only other symptom is copious amounts of sweating.

I have no idea how we caught it. With my wife being a teacher and me working in a busy emergency room with daily contact with COVID patients, who knows?

Nurse told me earlier in the week that at our local VA clinic they had been seeing 1 or so a week in the last month. Then two weeks ago 4, then last week 5.

I wouldn’t waste money on a lottery ticket if I were you. Yuck!

I got it back in the original flavor and had a 100.4 fever for one day and some muscle soreness which I thought was somehow from riding the peloton. I ended up losing taste and smell which was annoying. The kids were positive but asymptomatic. My wife being vital got vaccinated and was annoyed that she had a 103 fever from the shot. She was the only one that didn’t get it though since it was pretty recent to her getting vaxxed.

I thought the general consensus was that the virus had mutated to not much more than the common cold, with maybe a few added symptoms. I’ve had the cold recently. Decided to never get tested again. If it ain’t going kill me, why bother?

I understand that people in sensitive job situations may have no choice. Still, if it’s no worse than a cold, why?

    Because there are medications like Ivermectin and HCQ that I don’t want to waste on a common cold.
