Feeling grim.

Amazingly, I’ve so far managed to avoid catching COVID, but I think it’s finally caught up with me.

I only had five hours of sleep last night and thought my general fatigue was due to that. But I’m now aching and have an annoying dry cough. No temperature (that I can tell), though I have been running the office AC quite a bit today.

I’ll take a test as soon as I get home in a couple of hours and hope for the best. Given the rising rates of infection in London, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if I have it. The lack of masks and social distancing has to have some consequences, right?

(Note: I’m continuing to wear a mask on public transport and in shops. That, plus immunisation, isn’t 100% protective, but I think it’s what’s kept me healthy for the last two years. I’m not about to stop suddenly because the muppets in government want to keep their rabid backbenchers happy.)

Anyway, watch this space…

    You’re describing symptoms I’ve had for three weeks. Multiple antigen tests and a full PCR test have been negative. I had lack of sleep and a dry, persistent cough. Unlike you I had high temperature and chills too. Absolutely no energy. Yet all COVID tests still negative. Took 3 weeks to feel more or less normal, though the urge to cough is lingering.


  3. I hope that you’re feeling better! Naked hugs! 🙂
