As a precaution I called my doctor who advised me to take a test that I did on Monday and it was positive. My kids are downstairs and it’s awful because I can hear the youngest crying for me but I can’t risk any of them taking it so I have to stay in my bedroom. I’ve been isolating myself in my upstairs bedroom ever since. In the last few days I have gradually gotten worse. In addition to sore throat and shortness of breath, I had terrible coughing attacks, but also several nosebleeds ”.
