Quarantined – Who Knows What Day it is

At this point I have lost count on what day it is. Maybe day 10?

I was retested last Friday and yesterday I got my test results and again they were negative. How could this be? I have continued to sleep with, kiss and hug my husband this whole time. I feel sick so what’s the deal?

I have had multiple people tell me it has taken three and four tests to prove they were sick. This is totally unacceptable in my book.

Because I keep testing negative, now I have to stay in isolation for another 10 days AFTER my husband is released which was last night at midnight. I can’t go back to work or leave the house until February 4th. This is a bit of a nightmare for me but I am trying to keep calm about it.

I have a virtual appointment this afternoon with my regular doctor to see what she thinks. My symptoms are strange. Yesterday I could not stop feeling this shaky, low blood sugar, want to crawl out of my skin feeling and the restless leg is well…relentless at night.

I definitely have a very different perspective on this virus and how it is being handled in our state.

I still plan to post about my observations but need to rest right now and get better.

Quarantined-Day Seven

Last night was terrible. The nausea and shaking and dizziness hit me right after dinner. I dragged myself to bed and waited it out. Nothing came of the nausea thankfully other than feeling like I got hit by a bus this morning.

As the day went on today I felt better and now feel pretty good.

My husband’s test result came back positive so unless I am super human…which maybe I am…I too must have it.

The Health Department called to follow up with him and to do contact tracing. They were amazed we hadn’t left the house since Saturday afternoon and that we had been so careful not to come in contact with anyone since then. Isn’t that what we are supposed to do? Apparently most people still go out because they haven’t been officially quarantined yet.

The Health Department said I should get another test so I went this evening and got another one done. Results again in a few days.

We rested as much as possible today and so far so good. I hope we are near the end of this sickness!

Thank you for all of your well wishes and offers to run to the store for us. We really appreciate all of the love.

Quarantined-Day Four to Six

I didn’t post the last 2 days because I felt a bit silly doing so. I was feeling fine actually.

I felt good enough to take a walk yesterday to the creek behind our house. I bundled up and even wore my mask to keep warm. But about half way through I started to regret taking such a long walk. I almost called my husband to come get me in the car but I pushed on and got back home out of breath and tired. By night I was not feeling well and I went to bed early.

This morning I didnt feel great but better than last night.

I did get my test results back and they were negative. This is a bit frustrating because why do I feel crummy still?

My husband still hasnt gotten his tests results back yet. He feels worse today with a stuffed nose and a bad headache and he lost his sense of smell and taste last night.

Some people have said I might have had a false negative. We administered the test ourselves so did we do it right?

I guess we just will have to see what his results are.

More later! -MM
