I tested positive for COVID this morning.
I had a rapid test on Monday that came back negative. I took the PCR test on Monday and the results came back negative on Wednesday. I woke up feeling a little stuffy this morning, but thought it was due to the cooler temperatures. To be safe, I got tested again, both rapid & PCR.
My symptoms are mild and so nondescript. I have slight nasal congestion. My head hurts, but I also need new glasses. My back hurts, but it always does when it’s that time of the month. I’m always tired because I’m a mom & a teacher.
I took a three hour nap from about 11a-2p today. I’m hungry but don’t know what to eat and don’t want to cook. I have taste & smell. I’ve been drinking lots of liquids & am quarantined in my bedroom.
My husband also tested positive via rapid test this morning. He also got the PCR, but those results haven’t come in yet. My daughter’s rapid test from this morning was negative. My son took a PCR test this morning. They’re all quarantined in different rooms of the house.
I’m now a statistic. I wear a mask. I don’t gather socially. I clean & sanitize everything. I keep a safe social distance. I’m now sick because others were reckless & irresponsible.
Tonight is the second night of Chanukah. I guess we’ll light the menorah on a Zoom call.
This sucks. Fuck 2020. Fuck Governor DeSantis. Fuck Trump.
