It is now nearly 3 weeks past being diagnosed with Covid 19 and from most indications I am still alive. I am pretty happy about that. Nobody seems to be mad at me for getting it anymore and that helps my mood because I do want people to like me.
I still am not sure where I got it. I had been told that vegetables can test positive for Covid so I am pretty sure I picked it up in a salad somewhere. I probably got a hold of a murderous broccoli floret! As far as I can tell no one caught it from me so even if you are not wearing it much, keeping an old cloth mask in your pocket apparently gives some protection to others.
My worst symptoms were fatigue and muscles aches. The first day the muscle aches were pretty bad but mostly slight after that. The worst of the fatigue lasted about a week and that was weird. I have been told I was tiring but I do not normally feel tired myself.
Also I had headaches! I never get headaches! I have had other people tell me “You give me a headache! So I guess I have been a carrier, but I never have headaches myself. Now that I have experienced them I am going to be much more sympathetic when someone says, “You’re giving me a headache!”
