I tested myself late on both counts. But the glaring point holds. I admit being angry and frustrated during those first 2-3 days when I was feverish. Then I figured that since this was likely to have been omicron, I might as well get it over with now. Still… while symptoms were relatively mild, recovery is still slow. These last 2 weeks sucked. Even now, I keep coughing because my throat is still a bit itchy. It will also be a while before I lose this constant feeling of weakness and fatigue.
This ordeal has left me with certain strong opinions. I’m not inclined to share, but I will say this. After more than 2 years, the virus continues to evolve rapidly. Our measures against it, on the other hand? Not so much. It sure would be nice if that were not the case.
