Very sluggish lately

Its been going on for about 3 days. A very mild sore throat and very mild nasal congestion. Both of which are probably a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10. I thought I was getting a cold or something, but it hasn't really been progressing into a full blown cold. The worst part is I've been very sluggish. I don't have the energy to do anything. I mean, I still do it. I haven't missed work or anything like that. But just everything I do feels like such a chore. I feel like I weigh a billion pounds. I don't know if its some sort of new anxiety or maybe its a form of depression? Last week was insanely chaotic for me and I drove over 2,000 miles for work. Yes 2 thousand. So maybe I am just worn out from that? I don't know. I just don't like it. I have this like weirdly mild cold and I wish it would do something. Even if it got worse, atleast I would know it was progressing and I was working towards getting over it. But nothing has changed in 3-4 days.

I mean, anything is possible. It seems kind of unlikely because I pretty much just drive for work and spend 99% of my time either home or in my personal vehicle and when I do drop offs I have my mask and only come into contact with one person who is also wearing a mask. I kinda think if it was covid it would have progressed or I would have a fever or be showing some other sort of symptoms by now. Mainly all I really have is fatigue. The sore throat and fact that I have to blow my nose once every couple hours hardly even seems worth mentioning. My mind went more towards something like cancer, but seems unlikely to be that either.

Oh ok, so not COVID.
I highly, highly doubt it’s anything sinister. I think you’re just going through a funk of tiredness. Happens to all of us.
How’s your sleeping? How’s your diet? You might be lacking vitamins/hydration.
