I’m Positive!! Testing Positive For Covid – the symptoms.

I finally tested positive today.

I think I went down with it on Saturday. We had one of our grandson’s staying with us and I was feeling very rough, tired and muzzy. I took a test and it was negative. Liz tested positive on Monday. I tested again on Monday and that was negative.

I took it easy over the last four days. I’ve been feeling generally out of sorts. I think it was Tuesday that I really felt that I couldn’t be bothered. I sat around and read my new Stephen King book. I read for hours. It hasn’t affected my concentration.

Yesterday I spent the whole day sorting photos and applying captions.

Today I got up and have a strong positive test result. That is a full five days after getting the first symptoms.

Fortunately, we are both triple vaccinated so our symptoms are likely to be mild – and are.

My symptoms:

A headache, muzziness and sleepiness on Saturday.

Perked up on Sunday – just feeling tired.

Really unmotivated and couldn’t be asked on Monday and Tuesday.

Developed a little cough on Wednesday. Feel very congested as if I have a cold.

Last night my throat felt very dry, my stomach was a little acid and I had slight diarrhoea. I got up in the night to get a drink (unusual).

his morning I tested positive.

My mouth feels a little strange – a slight metallic taste and a feeling of overstimulation.

Very slight tightness around the eyes but no headache.

The odd sneeze, a little cough but not much.

I don’t feel particularly ill but am not 100%. Not feeling anywhere near as bad as last Saturday!!

I reported the positive test to the NHS – a series of questions on line.

I’m now officially a statistic!!!

I’m very grateful to have had the vaccinations – without that I think we might have been very ill. As it is, so far, this is nothing more than a minor inconvenience!!

    1. As a fully vaccinated person I’ve been in that state for a while. Covid is an inconvenience. The trouble is that immunity only lasts around 12 weeks. Your possible covid of two years ago is well past any use to you.

I'd like to hear from you...
