My 'cold' was COVID-19
January 20, 2022
I saw a tweet online recently that said “Having not gotten covid yet feels like I’ve been hiding in the back of a 2+ year long middle school dodgeball game and the front lines have been THINNED.” (Thanks for summing it up, @ssactrub.)
I laughed because it was so accurate. Then I took a COVID-19 dodgeball to the face.
Last week, for the first time since the pandemic started, I got back my COVID-19 test results with big letters spelling “Positive” in red right at the top. And let me tell you, it’s a strange sensation. Especially when you were convinced you just had a cold.
