Covid or cold?


Any other year I’d assume it was a cold, but when I started to lose my sense of smell and taste on Boxing Day, I wasn’t 100% sure.

Got to tell you it’s a strange feeling not to be able to taste food. Right now it’s at maybe 5%. I can feel the texture but not the taste, just a tiny amount of what I know it should taste like. Really annoying when there’s so much nice food about.

I’m doing a postal test tomorrow when the post gets collected again. It looks quite straightforward but not looking forward to it.

Most of my symptom is around the not being able to smell (usually very sensitive for me) and taste. I’ve tried smelling Dog’s breath and can’t detect it at all. And it’s usually awful! I also had sore sinuses for ages but last night it sort of changed into a runny nose and sneezing.

Anyway, here’s hoping. I mean 2020 couldn’t get much worse!

      Thank you! I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself. But mostly angry because I always get sick during Christmas holidays!

        Everyone is entitled to feel sorry for themselves – especially seeing as you had a rough year losing your best friend on top of the year being a pandemic. Hugs and good thoughts.
