It's day 4 of not being able to taste or smell anything, even though I can breathe through my nose. Yesterday I went to the store because I needed some food (it really sucks being an adult and not having anyone to take care of you hahaha) and I got all sweaty and nasty; hoping it's because of the heat....it was like 100 degrees F yesterday. I just feel like I'm never going to get better. It's day 6 and each day I wake up expecting to feel better and I still pretty much feel the same as the day before. I'm coughing a lot less but my body feels weighed down. I can breathe fine but I'm exhausted and slept 13 hours last night. I wish I knew what to do. There's so much about this illness that we don't know about yet. Someone on FB posted yesterday that a study in Italy shows people still suffering from COVID weeks after initially testing positive for it. This terrifies me. I don't want to live the rest of my life like this. I'ts not even that I'm afraid, it's that I'm just really selfish about it. UGH. I honestly just want to taste chocolate again, smell the rain again, and walk up the stairs without getting out of breathe (oh wait I do that anyway). I'm just over it. I want to wake up in the morning excited for the day, but here I am still feeling like crap.....
