I am writing this article in a sort of diary style so that I can share with you my day to day first hand experience with the deadly virus the Coronavirus that had killed thousands of people across the world. Please bear with me as I am still having fever and headaches as I was writing this. Thank you! πŸ€•πŸ€•

June 3 Thursday

Yuen, my brother was absent from work because he is already exhibiting covid 19 symptoms like coughs and fever. He also had headaches and colds. I am working from home and we both thought that it's just an ordinary cough because there was a day, I think it was last Sunday that after he went jogging, he went to an airconditioned room in their office. Also, he said that he is always natutuyuan ng pawis because its so hot during that summer. I am also experiencing that on the last days of May. So i really thought it could be pasma lang and thought he can just rest to get better.

June 4 Friday
I was still working from home and yuen was absent from work again because he is still not feeling okay. Im still talking to him casually. Still using the same utensils and all. We use the same bathroom. He didn't wear mask inside the apartment. I am just doing fine. I don't feel tired. I don't have cough or colds yet. I feel normal and confident that on few days, Yuen will be well. He just stayed home. He's not allowed to go to work anyway for safety precautions.

June 5 Saturday
It is my rest day already and I went to SM to buy some grocery and withdraw cash because I need to pay Eileen who is my friend. Yuen just stayed home. He's not going out already. I didn't isolate myself though cause i was hoping its just an ordinary cough that will go away in couple of days. I was used to having cough before so it didnt bother me really. I went to SM and bought an electric fan because it is really really hot now. I also bought some plants. I was feeling okay that day. It didn't cross my mind about covid.

June 6 Sunday
Sunday morning was different already. I cough in the morning really hard. I though it could just be because of the coldness of the fan. Its pointed to my direction so I really got cold. I walked outside and walked ollie. Im not having too much coughs or colds yet. When the evening came, I slept at 10:30 and woked up just after an hour feeling so exhausted. Then I felt chills inside me. I feel like I have fever. I immediately wore a sweater and sock. I though I'll be okay by monday but no. I did not feel okay. Yuen will also have his swab test on monday.

June 7 Monday
I already have cough, colds and headache. I wasn't able to sleep well. Yuen went to the private testing center and had his antigen swab test. He tested positive. I think I was about to cry. And I think I am being unfair to my brother cause he didnt want this to happen but I blamed him for always going out every week. I do feel sorry for my brother. He doesn't have any support right now. At least for me, I have a boyfriend I can talk to. As for my symptoms, the coughs and colds are getting bad. I still went to work in the evening even if I only had 1 hr of sleep and I feel feverish and had headache. But I'm just keeping my cool because I dont want to feel down right now. But my headache has not left me even if I drank meds already.

June 8 Tuesday
This day was so tiring. I have cough already. But thank God I managed to sleep well in the morning and afternoon. I still worked in the evening. This was the day that I lost my sense of smell for awhile after I woke up from my sleep. But it just eventually came back after few minutes and after I cook. I feel so tired while working. I managed to sneek out to get a little sleep. I need to. Or else I might eventually just call in sick the next day. The symptoms are still manageable but the headaches is just worst. I'm having difficulty in sleeping when I have headaches. It was really a bad day for me.

June 9 Wednesday
This day was a different day. It has made my symptoms a little worse. I still have headaches and i'm vomiting already. I wasn't able to sleep well in the morning because of the symptoms that keeps on bothering me. I keep on coughing all day. I was feeling okay but when I checked my temperature, I actually got fever.Β  But I still need to work in the evening so I tried my best to sleep in the afternoon. I also am still cooking for my brother and me so even I don't have smell and taste, I still tried to cook for us. Also, there was no DOH that visited us even its already past 1 week.

It's so hard to experience Covid symptoms. The cough and the cold, at first its looks ordinary. As if it will just go away in few days but no. It gets worse in the coming days. You get to feel paranoia too because you can't avoid to think, what if your symptoms gets worsen. What if you had difficulty breathing. What if you die because of Covid? These are just few questions that comes to my mind.

I realize then that you must have a strong will to heal and to live because if not, you will become weaker. On this one, my faith has become stronger than ever. Putting all the trust in the Lord that He will heal me and He will provide our needs.

Thank you for reading this Covid diary. I cannot elaborate more because I am not feeling okay until now but I appreciate you reading this one.

I will see you on the second week journey of this Covid Diary. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ
