So I uhhh, started coughing today...

I actually started coughing Sunday but didn’t cough monday.
But did cough yesterday a few times and today a whole lot as of this afternoon.

I had to go to target from some much needed shampoo and body wash. And other very necessary personal hygiene items.
I put in a clean pair of gloves and i since I still have a mask I wore that just in case I do have anything other than allergies (which my symptoms are more consistent with due to watery eyes, NO fever, no nasal drip, no nasal congestion, just itchy nose) I wouldn’t spread any possible diseases to anyone.

I wiped down the cart I used with a Clorox wipe (I have started carrying a few in a ziplock for when I have to go out and run errands. I have only gone 3x since we’ve been out on the shelter in place order.

But I still can’t help but worry that I could possibly have this stupid virus and give it to my loved ones.

How tf am I supposed to protect my family from me?

I already told my boys that can’t use my bathroom or come into my bedroom anymore.

I had all the covid symptoms in February but was told I only had bronchitis- wasn’t even tested for covid19

I was given cough syrup for my cough but I can’t find it and I really need it 😫😫😫
So you don’t have all the symptoms of the virus. So fuck it. Don’t WORRY about it (that’s not to say to avoid taking precautions) until the time comes when you DO have all the symptoms. 🤗
@KaysHealingPath Can I DM you?

Oh man, that's a bad area to be right now. It sounds like you're taking extra precautions at least. I have a routine when I get to work and home. Pretty much wipe or spray all the common touch spots.

@swandfriends yes I’ve been disinfecting all common spots husband is still working though
Except that man has a superb immune system

Has only been sick 2-3x in the 14 years we’ve been together.

I’m so jealous of him. He takes extra precautions because of me, I’m chronically ill.
👀 dun be sick!!!!
