Day 2

My fever disappeared overnight and apart from the cough I feel OK, really. Maybe a little bit lethargic, but a lot better than yesterday. The cough, though…

When I get colds, usually they’re very, very nose focused. My nose will drip and/or I’ll sneeze continually for hours. My body can produce snot at a staggering rate. If I could sell it, I’d be rich (maybe there are websites for that…).

I know this isn’t a cold, because my nose is fine. The cough, though, has become very unpleasant and my throat is hurting because of it. So if this isn’t coronavirus, it’s a huge coincidence.

  1. From those who have been presumptive positive in groups I’m in on Facebook, it seems like day 3-5 is one likely time it could get roughly if it’s going to. In that stage, especially if otherwise low-risk and have previously had mild symptoms, you can suddenly get hit with massive lethargy followed by – if you are going to get it at all – the trouble breathing. Continuing to cross my fingers you are one of the *other* case types I have also seen accounts from presumptive positives of in groups for which it never feels worse than what you are describing now. But, if you can, make sure you have a plan for notifying hospital if for any reason it should turn more serious and let us all know you are doing okay. I imagine more bloggers will end up in this “this seems to fit, but they aren’t able to test…” situation. Be safe and hugs.

    1. Thank you so much Lavender, that’s very useful to know! I read a comment on Reddit from someone who said something similar – that it suddenly hit him with breathing difficulties after 4 days – but I didn’t know it was a common thing. The lack of information around for how it generally progresses is a bit concerning when you think you might have it! I suspect I have an advantage over most people in that I do so much running my lung capacity will hopefully be able to handle things, but we’ll see.

      So far day 3 feels a lot like day 2.
