Ugh no one wants to hear a doctor say I’m sending you for a covid test but here we are. My husband and I were so sick this week. Low grade fevers, fatigue, congested, sore throats, etc. A doctor decided we checked off all the symptoms of covid so off we went for testing. They sent us to a building I’m another city. When we arrived we had to call before entering. Once inside it was like another world. A table was right at the door so we could sanitize our hands. The building had a desk with people in hazmat suits standing behind it. No furniture. No paintings or posters on the wall. Just a desk, carpet and alien looking people starring at you. They take you in the back and make you stand in a door way marked with an X on the floor. They hand you a swabbed, you stick it in your nose just enough to make you cringe and your eyes water. Spin it in 5 circles and then do the other nostril. As you walk out you feel a burning feeling and you do the walk of shame back to your car. Never did I think I would experience something so odd but we survived. The next day my phone binged with an update to my labs. I was terrified to open it but I was so happy to see the words NEGATIVE. Phew. Breathed a sigh of relief. We were negative and just suffering from the flu. Although the next few days would continue to be miserable, but at least we don’t have covid-19! Now we bomb the house and get rid of the germs!
