Me possibly having the coronavirus 

My temperature is up to 100.4F (38C) and I still feel like hot death. I took a Tylenol. Planning on going to urgent care first thing in the morning, or to the ER if things get really worse before then.

I'm still breathing fairly fine.

i'm back from urgent care. they ordered a test for the coronavirus and told me it would be 7-10 days to get the results.

otherwise i was told to self-isolate until then and go to the ER if i start to have very severe respiratory issues or chest pain.

i'm actually feeling much better today and my temperature has been normal so i may be past the worst of it.

@Garrison 7-10 days? It literally only takes a few hours to perform the tests, and they're legally only allowed to keep the blood for 7 days max, so if they gave an estimate that long, I'd call 'em up and find out why.

@KitsuneAlicia it's not a blood test, it's a nasal swab. i know why it takes that long; our state's testing infrastructure is a fucking mess and there's a backlog.

@Garrison I mean, we kinda figured it was due to that, but just wanted to be sure. The whole situation is worrying af.

Take care of yourself, and we're glad you're feeling better.

@Garrison *fingers crossed that you just had a passing bug*

@Garrison glad you’re feeling so much better. Here’s hoping it’s minor and almost over.

@Garrison I am glad you're feeling better and appalled that it would take that long for you to get test results.
