I’m still testing positive for COVID-19

I'm still testing positive for COVID-19 – Bent Corner

It’s been eight (8) days since I first tested positive for COVID-19, and I’m still testing positive.

This is just nuts. I was the last one in our home to get COVID-19, and it’s taking me longer to get over it. That includes my 77-year-old mother-in-law. She got over COVID-19 quicker than it’s taking me to get over COVID-19. I knew my immune system was awful, but I didn’t know it was this awful.

I don’t feel sick. Not really. I’ve never had a fever. The only symptoms I’ve had are that I’m congested and I feel more tired than I normally do. I also have a headache, but I attribute that to being congested. My congestion would be worse if I wasn’t taking a 24-hour nasal decongestant every morning. I’m taking the one you have to show your driver’s license and get entered into a Federal database to buy. The really good stuff.

I just want to live my life without spreading COVID-19 to other people. If I’m testing positive, I can give it to others. I don’t want to do that. I haven’t left the house since last Saturday. We were planning to go down to Baltimore to watch the Houston Astros take on the Orioles. We paid for super fancy seats, so it was going to be a great experience. The good news is we’re not out the ridiculous amount of money we paid. The team is giving us credit for next season. It turns out that when you spend an enormous amount of money on your tickets, people assume you’re rich. Everyone knows rich people are treated much better than how regular people are treated.

The longer I have COVID-19, the angrier I feel toward China. The SARS-CoV-2 virus originated in China. The regressive, authoritarian government was less than truthful with the rest of the world about it. The Chinese government was more concerned with its image than they were about the health and safety of the rest of the world. China is still acting secretively about COVID-19.

China lied and innocent people died.

  1. Hey Rick, sorry to hear you got Covid. I got it about a month ago. My wife administered a home test cause I was feeling run down and a head ache. It was positive, so the next day I to urgent care for an official test. It turned out being negative, but the hospital I work at requested a retest since I had symptoms. I went back the next day, and tested positive. According to the CDC, you need to isolate for five days and then resume your normal activities. You can still test positive for several weeks after infection. Hopefully, you’re on the mend!

    1. Sounds like we both got the same flavor of covid. Feeling rundown and having a headache are my symptoms too.

      I read up what it said on the CDC website after testing positive. It left me feeling pissed off. According to them, as long as you don’t have a fever, you’re good to breathe on your fellow Americans after five days. That makes little sense to me. If the test can detect SARS-CoV-2, it means you’re exhaling the virus, right?

      I just don’t want to give it to anyone.
