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.
