So Dd and Dh have been quite ill since Friday, bad cold, sore throats and a cough. They have basically been hiding in their bedrooms since then, trying not to infect me (I have been working through the pandemic and meet lots of people every day). I’ve slept in a different bedroom than Dh this weekend.
I thought we did pretty well avoiding each other. But, last night as I was about to brush my teeth, the dog wanted to go out and so I grabbed my toothbrush and brushed my teeth as I was letting him out. Only to notice when I finished that I had been using my Dh toothbrush!!!
In 20 years it’s never happened, but of course now of all times it did.😳😷
I used 2 different mouth washes afterwards, but I am not going to get away from this am I? 😭😂

It’s just a bad cold. Everyone has it. Not Covid.

Haha! Laugh or cry?! Fingers crossed you’re ok...

It’s most likely just a cold. Even with the dreaded cough.

FWIW, I think I had covid in Jan. only no one called it Covid. The continuous cough was so bad and deep that it ripped my chest apart. I think I tore every muscle down one side. I couldn’t breathe without feeling like I’d been stabbed. I was diagnosed as having pluerisy due to the pain (they didn’t X-ray).

A week or so later most patients in the mental health unit I worked in all had the same horrible cough. Some diagnosed with pneumonia some with pleurisy some told it was just a cold.

But that’s what the covid cough is. Continuous, it never stops, you physically can’t stop it. And it fucking hurts. It’s not the same as a cough you get with a normal cold.

There’s no mistaking that cough from what I’ve seen.

(Pretty sure it was covid, I was working in Brent and taking patients to Northwick Park hospital everyday and most of us lived out near Heathrow).

There are some nasty bugs going round. All of us had that sore throat, bad cold thing a couple of weeks ago.

Maybe not just a bad cold. My daughter started with what we thought was a cold a week ago Sunday. Turns out it's covid and she got her positive test Tuesday. We are now in quarantine for 2 weeks. It's so disheartening.

Sorry but might not be just a cold!! My DD had a cough and wheezing. Called GP about the wheezing and he said that she needed to be tested due to the cough. I seriously thought he was overreacting but we’ve just had the test back today and it was positive!! We’re now isolating

That’s not how it’s been for my DD. I thought she just had a normal “toddler cough” it was every so often, didn’t interrupt her normal daily activities, wasn’t causing her discomfort at all but turns out it is COVID. You really can’t tell
