Took me 4 tries to type that, hope you like it.
Updates here so people know I am still here, I love you, don’t expect me to text back pls
Worse today, sorry about that
Chat with my friend to compare symptoms. She still has the vertigo, haven’t seen that come up in lists of what to watch for. To me it is the worst, can’t move my head.
Today we can add hand tremors
These chills are different. Jackknife entire body, quads clenching. I get up to go to the bathroom and immediately lose all my body heat, teeth chattering, going BRRRR can’t stop
It is 65 F
Under two afghans and 20 lb weighted blanket, shaking all over
Understand the effort to type a two sentence email, without auto complete you would not be able to read this
Oh also I am losing my voice
The “cough” is not like other coughs. Imagine a hundred spiders suddenly hatching in the back of your throat
Started coughing and fell over sideways
...but at least it’s a dry cough
Still can’t taste anything but today I could smell... had to ask, is that... toast? Kinda
Let’s tackle some rumors
NO, hot tea will not “wash the virus into your stomach acid”, I have drunk hot tea every single day for the past, like, ten years. Also eating hot soup and oatmeal. Whoever told you this, CITE YOUR SOURCE, did not work for me
NO, “warm weather” is not going to save you, it was 65 F the day I was exposed, in the 90s in Australia and they’re getting it there too
This is hard work, the pseudoscience, it is like fruit flies
Thanks for the advice to “keep moving,” I am dizzy + vertigo (2 distinct feelings), body shaking, weak as a new kitten, can’t regulate body temperature, takes 15 minutes to get to bathroom and back
Hand sanitizer didn’t save me, washing my hands for 20 seconds didn’t save me, if I’ve ever cooked for you then you know how much garlic we eat, didn’t save me
I’m a five-mile runner, 35 full push-ups, headstand, 45lb backpack, 10+ servings of vegetables, cabbage eating person, it still came for me, BECAUSE IT IS A VIRUS
Not respecter of persons
I went out ONCE
I went out one single time and I got it WHILE trading coronavirus news and health advice
I’m trying to scare you so that you will stay home. Sure, you probably won’t die, that’s not the point, the point is you do not want to feel this sick.
While I was working on this we had a 4.9 earthquake. I said “okay, seriously? Come on”
Fate is stupid and mean
This took me 2 hours
Be well lovelies
I've been working with chronic disorganization, squalor, and hoarding for over 20 years. I'm also a marathon runner who was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and thyroid disease 17 years ago.
