I'm sure you'll be fine @kelicopter. Anxiety depresses your immune system, anyway, so try your best not to worry too much. Best wishes heartapple01

My mother tested positive three days ago, and we all freaked out. She was very suspicious about it so she tested herself a second time and it came out negative. We're in isolation anyways, but I think we're off danger. Weird.

Oh dear, @kelicopter , that sounds no fun! Please get tested if you show any other symptoms, but in the meanwhile: take care of yourself. Catch up on some movies, do a Beatles marathon... Try to make the best of it, I guess. Hope your sister is ok.

 

@Jules , that's not fun. Could have been a false positive, or perhaps she had it weeks ago and between tests recovered enough that the test didn't pick it up. Regardless, hope she's better.

Not sure if this should be on the coronavirus thread, but it seems more fitting here:

I'm currently self isolating for 2 weeks after coming into contact with my sister, who then tested positive. I'm about 6 days in and feeling okay, a bit tight chested but unsure whether that's just how anxious I am about the whole situation. I'm also social distancing from my other half just in case, he's sleeping in the spare room (which is his home office/gaming room anyway so he's happy enough!)

  

It's hard being separated from the person you love. Have you gotten tested? If your negative, maybe you could end the isolation early.

The number of cases is on the rise in the UK atm, so tests are a bit harder to come by and the advice is not to get one unless you have symptoms. The 14 day isolation is the NHS guideline, regardless of the test result, and my work is being really understanding. And today I'm feeling okay.

We did get my mum tested as she has previously had some health issues. She tested negative and has had no symptoms so far, thankfully.

Thanks for everyone's messages. I second this sentiment from THGF, stay vigilant because it is still a very real and scary thing!!

Good news @kelicopter.  For sure being exposed is not a sure thing. My niece got the virus but her daughter and husband didn't. Until she showed symptoms and got tested she cooked, cleaned, hugged (in her words "we did regular mommy & daddy stuff"), and drove 100 miles together in a small car. Both her daughter and husband have been tested and the results came back clean.

Well, in addition to getting divorced, selling the house, looking for a job and a new place to live, I am also definitely having hernia surgery. 2020.

Hoping you find some improvement soon. Just try to get through each day with some sense of sanity left.

If there's a bright side to this ET, 2021 is going to feel like the best year ever for you. 

Try to stick with it - it'll be Getting Better all the time (even if "it can't get no worse")

Hope the hernia goes wellapple01

I've learned the university I attended is moving to the city. From a beautiful expansive campus with grass, great lecture theatres and library, to a skyscraper. It's a downgrade to me, and makes me feel sad the current (soon to be former) campus will likely turn into a housing development. This is the place I became a big Beatles fan, walking the grounds during the day and night. It was a great environment for learning and creativity. It's depressing when things from our past are no more. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Despite having plans to go out my being has decided that walking is not going to happen. Always good to have a day of rest.

And after 4 to 5 months of doing 200+ hours every 4 weeks at work my hours will be going down. I have 3 days off in a row twice!!! I've been fortunate if I get two days these last few months. All could change.
