More than a month ago I unfortunately caught covid after 2 years of being covid 😷 free. It started with a slight cough on a Monday night which I didn’t think much of. Then Tuesday I couldn’t stop coughing all day. I took a rapid test 🧪 in the morning but it came back negative. So I decided I should be fine for work however I didn’t realise I had to move all this soil around into a planter box at the bottom of a hill.
It was a lot of labor work but I managed to somehow get through it with even lifting these mature magnolia trees 🌲 into place. Later that day I found out that a friend I saw the weekend came back as positive, so I got a PCR test just incase which came back positive. So for a week I ended up being stuck in the house. Wednesday came along (my first day of iso) and I started getting headaches and a temp. It probably was the worst day as I was in bed by 7pm which is unusual for me.
By Thursday I sort of lost my voice a bit and developed a runny nose. Then by Friday my nose 👃became blocked and was blocked for a while! A week later I was out of iso but wasn’t able to get rid of the cough and blocked nose! Unfortunately it stuck around with me for a month being unable to smell things but at least I didn’t lose my sense of taste!
For the majority of September I had a cough that I couldn’t control but it seems like it’s finally going (I hope 🙏)! I usually have a good immune system but this year has just proved that anyone no matter how good their immunity is, can still get colds after being locked up for multiple months.
Has anyone else experienced Covid? If so what were the symptoms for you?
