    Covid is on the rise again. Lovely. I know several people who have gotten sick recently, and now my guards are starting to go up again. I’m not sure what to make of everything. 

    Are you monitoring the new influx of cases? If so, how are you responding to it, if at all?

    Are the symptoms any different this time around from previous strains?

      To be honest, I haven’t done much research on it, so I’m not sure. I should say it’s not so much the actual COVID virus I’m worried about. It’s the fact that a virus, in general, is spreading quickly outside of the normal cold and flu season. My lungs have gotten weaker, so I’m afraid to get anything at this point. Usually, I let my guard down in the summer, but now this COVID thing is making me pay closer attention. If you read anything about this strain, let me know!

    Coughing is not that bad.

    At least not yet.

    I stayed in bed for one day, but working already.

        its worsening.

        now i would rate my condition as 7/10, where 10 i had to stay in bed for two weeks with very bad cough (before vacation).

        I did own test too late now, it came negative and i was denied paxlovid.

        Stay safe.
