Feeling any better?

Omg I love this cartoon I needed a smile ❤️

I’m doing okay, today I started to turn a little bit of a corner, Mark urgently recommended Paxlovid, Sherman ordered it, Pax is definitely helping because I started it yesterday (or the day before 🤔) and today I feel like I’m finally turning around a little,

But….today I’ve started losing my sense of taste 😢….not 100% gone but I’d say 95% gone with some sensations gone completely,

which is a very surreal experience,

because your brain *knows* what something is supposed to taste like, but it’s not there–>

I opened a coke (admittedly not the best but I couldn’t hold down food for a couple of days so I’ve been sipping a lot of Gatorade and soda),

and when I took a sip,

at first I was like ‘there’s something wrong with this can of Coke’, and almost threw it away —

then after tasting a few random things in the fridge,

I realized it wasn’t the Coke, it’s me–

Id forgotten losing taste could be an effect of covid until it started today,

and it’s truly the most bizarre symptom from an infection I’ve ever had in my life (and uve had, what like thousands of infections?) —

And losing taste is the most bizarre sensation ever —

Because it doesn’t hurt, it’s not going to kill me,

But it’s f***ing weird — like being in a Tim Burton movie (have you seen Wednesday? It’s amazing)

I had a bunch of ‘come to Geezus’ moments when I was really sick a couple of days ago [you know a lot of the usual: ‘if I live I promise to clean my apartment and

make these amends and do this and tell this person that’]

and you were high on my list —

I love you very much 🥰❤️

About hopeforanswers

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
