Bad Timing

You have no idea.

Apparently, the first US COVID-19 death actually occurred on February 6 in Cali, a lot earlier than we originally thought. Now, that doesn’t sound so awful, but now I’m wondering.

In late January and early February, I caught what I thought was a cold. Some minor throat irritation, a runny nose, chest congestion, and one hell of a cough. It wasn’t a completely dry cough–it moved garbage out of my lungs–but it was persistent and constant. It wasn’t terrible, but it was enough to drain my energy to the point of needing a nap after work.

It also caused me to completely lose my sense of smell and taste. So now I’m forced to wonder.

I’m not the only one; there are others on Joe.My.God who are wondering if the respiratory illness they had was a simple rhinovirus or something far more sinister. There are those who want antibodies testing done.

I’m among them.

Again, I’m not completely sure. I could have been dealing with a normal, run of the mill cold. But the timing is extremely suspect to me and I am forced to wonder.

Stay tuned.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.

    The fact that you are still alive after all these months gives reason for hope. The thought has crossed my mind that if I had been exposed, something adverse would’ve happened to me and Joe. Thank Primus that hasn’t happened. We want the 2 of you to always stay well.
