I’m trying not to be worried. I think coronavirus may have got me.

I thought that I had a cold over the last couple of weeks. I feel different tonight. I am finding it harder to breathe. I don’t quite have a cough yet but occasionally I am feeling like I need to cough. I can’t help but worry despite knowing that I have been careful. I’m not going to be able to go out for even a walk if I’ve got symptoms of the virus. I’ve had a headache for a week. Surely I wouldn’t have been able to go on a long walk today if the virus was about to unleash itself on me? I desperately need sleep but too worried to be able to get to sleep. I may have caught the virus just before we locked down. I’ve had a sore throat and felt achy for the last few weeks. They weren’t there all the time though. I don’t have a sore throat now. I ache all around my chest and around my back like a tight band. I feel like that tight band feeling is making breathing more of an effort. I could hear myself wheezing when trying to get to sleep. I don’t want to be one of those that gets severe symptoms. I’m hoping that I got it mildly otherwise I’m sure that I would have felt the symptoms weeks ago if that is when I caught it. I only went the supermarket and a few walks since this lockdown started. I had to go to get food and fresh air. I was careful but I still get symptoms. That isn’t fair when there have been loads gathering in parks who probably never contracted any of it.

  1. For what it may be worth, I think a lot of people have gotten it mildly, but aren’t getting tested. I think it’s going to be a long time before we have an idea of how many. They are working on an antibody test and I hope they succeed and that it becomes commonly available. That would tell you if you had it in the past. I hope you will be well.
