COVID is wild. I tested positive on Monday. I’ve been hiding in my room since then. I was with Brian and Jen at UGA orientation in close quarters for 4 days and in the car for 8 hours. Jen and I slept in the same bed.
I’m the only person in the house who’s tested positive, and everyone retested today.
I’ve never run a temperature. I feel pretty crappy, but I’ve definitely been sicker.
I’ll be more careful in the future, especially indoors in crowds, which I’m pretty sure where I got it.
It’s not been fun. I don’t recommend it. But, I’m glad I waited two years to get it, where we have rapid tests, paxlovid and the variants are more contagious, but much less deadly, especially for fat asthmatics like me.
