My mom likely has COVID so I inevitably will catch it

I'm not even that anxious, more irritated. I did everything to avoid infecting her for the last two years, and she went out and got sick because she was too bored to stay inside waiting for my booster to kick in. I had theatre tickets for the first time in over two years for two weeks from now...guess I won't be using those. I know things just happen and she didn't get sick on purpose, but this is going to be a nightmare. She refuses to drink anything when she gets sick because she doesn't feel like it. It's like dealing with a five year old who's actually 80. I haven't felt well in ages (not COVID related) and I don't have the energy for this. I hate sitting around waiting to get sick. I REALLY hate dealing with my mother when she's sick, especially when I'm also sick. I know that since she's triply vaccinated and omicron is the least dangerous variant, if she's going to get sick this is the way to go, but it'd have been nice if it had happened after MY booster started working...only got it a week ago. Sigh. This is stress I didn't need. At least I'm done with all my medical testing for now, so I don't have anything like that to reschedule. I realize it's not the end of the world. Things will probably be okay. But I'm worried about dealing with things while they're ongoing. I just don't have the energy.

Have heard of a number of cases here. Boyfriend and girlfriend who spent the Christmas together. He tested positive and she tested negative. This is the latest variant running wild over here. Lot of similar stories. People who were in the same house as some who tested positive, testing negative themselves.

The CDC admitted the PCR test is faulty and shows too many false positives. This after the inventor of test already said the test was not for detecting viruses.

I did end up getting it, so far doing okay. I'm kinda worried because we're coming up on the point where it'll either continue to get better or get worse seemingly out of nowhere. Fingers crossed for the first one.

Felt better, then a lot worse, but now a lot better and I think it's going to stick this time! Fingers crossed.

You got your booster so that’s promising. Hope you feel better soon and can attend your event.
