After all these years of being extra cautious, I finally caught covid this week and been sick as f__k these last three days. Worst part is that I'm 99% certain I caught it from my family doctor, of all people! Extreme coughing, an unbearable migraine, muscle aches and heavy fatigue. I believe that my vaccination booster shots have helped me fight the worst of it, as I have not developed any fever nor any respiratory difficulties, thank goodness. But, still, it's been a rough ride. I hate being sick. Only now am I slowly feeling better. The idiots at my job wanted me to show up at work, but I said I was too sick to do anything. "But we've got nobody to replace you!" I told them that I did not choose to become sick and that I did not wish this upon me, but that I needed to focus my energies on getting better. I felt guilty about letting my colleagues down and at the same time, I felt angry at myself for feeling guilty! I am sick. I should not feel guilty about that! I come first, work comes second. Period.
Edit: I forgot to mention total loss of smell. This is kind of freaking me out. Did not realize how important smell is to me until I lost it. :( Hope it comes back.
