Just my luck, I start to get my gut health going in the right direction and wouldn’t you know it I get sick. SUPER SICK the sick that my doctor wants me to come in and get tested. I never go anyplace, I homeschool my son and I do all my own stuff from my home computer. I don’t socialize and we do the W’s!
Ws: Wear, Wait, Wash
Wear a cloth mask over your nose and mouth.
Wait 6 feet apart. Avoid close contact.
Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.
Let’s refresh on some things shall we! COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Infected people have had a wide range of symptoms reported – from mild symptoms to severe illness.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19: (I have bolded what mine are)
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
Inability to wake or stay awake
Bluish lips or face
I guess this is what has hit home as I am not sure where or how I would have picked up COVID-19. COVID-19 can be spread by people who do not have symptoms and do not know that they are infected. That’s why it’s important for everyone to practice social distancing (staying at least 6 feet away from other people) and wear masks in public settings.
My test is today at 3:30 pm EST and being it is Thursday 11-19-20 I will not get my results until Monday. I don’t know if they give them over the weekend.
So I will touch back in next week. But this is why the blogs have kind of had to slow down. Computers make my head hurt.
If you have had COVID tell me what to look for or what I will deal with.
Remember people LIVE – LAUGH and LOVE
