day #8 covid 19 quarantine


i told my wife she yesterday you know we need that cigar chomping cajun national guard general who took over after katrina to come out of retirement and take over running this covid 19 outbreak

i still have some chills near the time my acetaminophen wears off so i am on regular 6 hour dosing of it
i was again able to have my cup of coffee this morning
i notice when i drink it it makes me sweat a lot
i have hardly any nausea now
i have not had any diarrhea for several days
i felt hungry for supper last night
i still have fatigue but not as bad as in the past days
i dont have body aches
i am sure the acetaminophen is blocking it
i plan to continue the acetaminophen until the chills go away then i will taper it down
i havent had any headache in the last 24 hours
i have more nasal congestion and have a scratchy throat and some mild hoarseness that hasnt worsened in the last 24 hours
i have no shortness of breath or chest discomfort

if i have the covid 19 which i feel like i do despite the not detected covid 19 test i wrote about yesterday then i know that the virus will move from the digestive system to the respiratory system
so im being careful as i monitor myself

so i do feel better
if my respiratory symptoms dont get worse and my fever and chills go away i will stay quarantined at least 7 days after they go away
ill base this on what the cdc and the health systems recommend

my wife she still has a headache and some body aches but not cough or digestive symptoms

yall be safe
stay inside if you can
keep away from other people
be careful of who and what comes through your front door
