17 days since symptoms of Covid started. I now have post viral bronchitis. My dr prescribed an inhaler and cough suppressant. I have been out of work 3 weeks. I can’t go anywhere with this cough. I have not tested lately, I will tomorrow. I have not had to use the inhaler. I think I had rebound after paxlovid, where you get better and then when you stop taking it your symptoms come back,
I had a neurological symptom where I had manic energy.couldn’t sleep, couldn’t focus. I did not know if it was a mental health issue or part of Covid, My dr prescribed klonopin which worked.
I am bored so I ordered a cameo from a comedian I like, Darren Carter to cheer me up.
Still testing positive. A faint line is still positive. I come out of isolation Friday. It is sooo boring just hanging out in my room. Thankfully, my husband and daughter are still negative.
I gave a month notice at work but now I have 2 weeks. 2 weeks to get what I can done. I feel like it is all piling up.while I lsu here, bored
I was offered some volunteer opportunities. One was volunteering at a resource center. I did that years ago. But I am not interested in the commute. So, I said no. The other is facilitating a support group live or over zoom. I think zoom might be easier with my hearing loss. I am not sure. I know I don’t want to be obligated every week. I am going to talk to someone soon.
My son works at a boy scout overnight camp but they had the week of the 4th off. He came in contact with someone with Covid, eventually testing positive and isolated here. He was cleared to go back to work wed night, but left me testing positive. I have been isolating since Tuesday. So far my husband and daughter are negative. She is taking a PCR test today. Husband is doing a rapid test tomorrow.
My Dr prescribed an antiviral Paxlovid because I have diabetes. It leaves a really bad taste in my mouth. I have been eating and drinking fluids but have lost a couple of lbs. I am overweight so that is fine. I test tomorrow. If it is negative I go back to work on mon. I can come out of isolation but have to wear a mask for 5 more days. If it is positive I isolate for 5 more days. Feel like a groundhog, if it sees it’s shadow 5 more days of Covid.
I was very congested but that has cleared up. I still sometimes have coughing fits. No fever. The isolating is worse than the illness. I am bored and lonely. The dog keeps me company.
I gave a month notice at my work on 7/5. My last day is Aug 2. I am having issues hearing, even with hearing aids. They could probably accommodate somehow, but I feel like it is time. I have been offered some volunteer opportunities with DBSA that I am considering. One is working in an office but I really don’t want to commute and there is facilitating live or online. I might share one of the facilitating roles. No rush to decide.
