Day 5 with COVID

So I don’t know what is worst, the body aches or the constant shortness of breath. As today the shortness of breath finally kicked in. My chest hurts from the coughing and we got a new little friend in town, flem. As it feels like my lungs are getting the brunt on this now.

It’s only day five but I really feel Luke I should already be on day 8 as it feels like it should already be there from the pain and agony it’s already put me through now with the shortness of breath. Which I think the shortness of breath is probably the most disturbing symptom you can develop. Especially when your asleep, as it comes random and unexpected makes you feel like someone is drowning you or suffocating you when it develops in your sleep. As having a dream that was really nice, ended up turning into a nightmare where I was trapped underwater.

The body aches are mild now, kind of Luke when you develop the flu, which I hope is how the rest of this COVID experience goes as the last five days were utter hell. With the body aches, stomach issues, and the going from fever then chills. Is probably the worst feeling ever. And the crappy thing is that I can’t taste orange juice now, which I hope is only temporary with having the vaccine and all.

After reading a science article about the virus and how it’s mutating, it was predicted that this is what would wipe out the human race, as the constant spread of this virus continues as many become skeptical of the vaccine and the the desire to not wear masks due to their ineffectiveness. But the truth is it’s shown to work since so far no one has contracted COVID. As one of my routines is to spray Microban daily on all the hard surfaces which last for 24 hours. Along with washing my hands and using a air sanitation device that kills any viruses and bacteria from the air. Which lets not be optimistic yet. I’m still on my 5th day. But how that it feels a little more like flu now, I think I’m going to be okay.
