I have anxiety and over reacted to a cough caused by my acid reflux. Ordered a home testing kit.

What happens if I don't use it? Will I get into trouble?

What do you think??
No of course not
Not unless you are required to for some reason

Why would you get into trouble?

I'm not an essential worker or anything. I'm just checking as I said I have anxiety and I tend to catastrophise

I have no idea. I'm just really worried. I need a social distanced slap 😂

I'd probably do it out of interest tbh but you don't have to.

I’d do it anyway too

I'd keep it in case I needed it in the future.

You’ll be fine. It’ll be included in the governments ‘tests done’ numbers though hmm

Its time sensitive so bin it if you're not going to use it. You can't keep it 'until some point in the future'

You have it now, it's not the most nicest of experiences. But it doesnt take long.

Government suspended all tests - so you cant do it anyway.

Government suspended all tests

Have they?

That article refers to antibody tests. Ones that you pay for.
An entirely different thing to the antigen test that you are sent if you report symptoms.

Wankerchief Tue 26-May-20 22:38:38

Why are they not testing anymore?

gamerchick Tue 26-May-20 22:39:21

Those are totally different tests.

They are, Wankerchief. A PP has misunderstood a Daily Mail article.
