My Entire Family Got Covid 19

The reason for a lack of new content on the blog lately has been… the coronavirus, since it finally caught up to us and managed to infect us all.

Well, we’ve got all sorts of theories as to who was “patient zero” in our family, but it does not matter that much.

As for me, I am fine.

In case you’re curious about the symptoms and whatnot, they initially resembled a common cold. Sore throat, a bit of fever, chills, headaches.

On Monday I’ve lost my sense of smell, and it’s by far the most aggravating issue. Food has absolutely no taste, and I don’t know what I am eating.

Other than that, the only other symptom is the fact that my nose feels irritated (or inflamed).

My mother, on the other hand, felt a bit worse. So was my girlfriend, who first experienced symptoms last Thursday, five or so days before losing her sense of smell.

For the better part of this week I’ve felt quite tired, and I’ve struggled to focus on tasks, but it didn’t feel worse than how I usually feel when going through a cold.

Right now, as some 10 days have passed since we’ve first experienced symptoms, we’re slowly getting back to normal. Our metabolisms are recovering, and we’ve regained a bit of our former energy levels and appetite and all that.

Once again, I’d like to thank all the sponsors of the blog, and if you’d like to support me, you can donate any amount you see fit via PayPal here.


  1. I’m very sorry to hear this. My father and sister both (independently) contracted the virus. Thankfully my father (in his late 70s) seems to have recovered with no serious effects. However, my sister, who is 50, is struggling with severe fatigue and other long haul type effects, almost 2 months since she was diagnosed. It’s an insidious thing.
    I wish you all a speedy and full recovery.

      1. Yes she lost her sense of smell and taste. She said it was a horrible sensation, difficult to eat but not taste what you were eating. I believe her sense of smell has started to return but it’s slow.

  2. Glad to hear you’re all recovering. That lost sense of smell and taste would definitely be the worst for me also. The news here tried briefly to exploit that symptom and how a few people seem to either not regain those senses or do so very slowly. Panic mongers.

    Wishing you all a complete and speedy recovery.
