Day four of being stuck at home (and on 3 weeks free holidays): I got sick.
Doesn't seem to be Covid, no coughing or difficulties breathing, but everything hurts, head's spinning and I have fever.
Seems like a flu for now, will update when I've seen the doc.

FFS, can't have a few days home resting without getting bucking sick.

@Val Oh no! Those do sound like flu symptoms, but even the flu can be nasty business. Stay super well-hydrated, sleep lots, and don't try to do anything strenuous until your symptoms recede.

Doc says it can either be the flu or Covid.
Can't be sure for now, have to wait a few days for symptoms evolution.

Praying for your health, bud 🙏 Remember, a cheerful heart is good medicine, so try and stay positive! :semicolondee:

So does that mean if you have a bad attitude then you will stay sick longer? Xd

Not necessarily, but it certainly doesn't help!

EDIT: I was thinking of this proverb in particular, which certain translations like that one simply say that a cheerful heart does good, like medicine, not that it is medicine. But the sentiment still applies. You're less likely to behave in recuperative ways with a negative attitude than with a positive one, as long as you aren't deluding yourself that you're better and don't need treatment or anything like that. False positivity is probably more dangerous than sincere negativity. @EstherTb

Okay, so my illness is almost gone now, whatever it was.
But now I'm worried for my mom.
She has fever, coughing, loss of smell and taste... I fear she might have gotten the Covid. And she's much more vulnerable than me.

I'm glad you're feeling better!
I just learned last night that Covid causes loss of smell and taste, so those seem like all the symptoms, yikes! Is she able to easily get tested? I'll be praying along with Esther.

Unfortunately, we don't have tests here, or if we do, they don't use them.
We have to wait a few days, if she has more difficulties breathing, we have to call the doc.

@Val, as soon as I read about your mom's symptoms in my notification email this morning, I said a quick prayer for her, and after all my morning routine was said and done, I started sending out prayer requests to close friends and to my church's prayer email list. I have also continued to pray for her and you.

I will continue sending out prayer requests as more people come to mind who are able and willing to help. It has only become more and more clear to me recently that we need the healing work of the Great Physician more than ever before!

Please keep us posted on her symptoms...! Take good care of her, and don't forget to take good care of yourself, too! Love yourself so that you can fully love those who need it!
