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.
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!!
