I lucked out this time, and this cold was tame. I had a sore throat for about a day and a half. Now I have a very slight cough that only pops up if I'm doing too much and my nose is all itchy. Sadly, I have no allergy meds left and am still too worn out to go to the store. I have slept a lot more than normal so maybe that helped me recover faster.
My 11yo son got the same thing and also only had a sore throat for a day. He's all stuffed up now, and his cough is a little worse. He's going to end up missing more school because of this. I can't send him with the cough. They're going to quarantine him for 10 days or until he gets a negative Covid test and has no symptoms which will be a few days anyway. So he's probably going to miss all of this week. He's already missed 12 days due to Covid protocols (one exposure and one slight temperature).
Hopefully, I won't catch any more colds and can make it through November in one piece. Doubtful. I always get sick at the end of the month for some reason. At least this went quickly, and I'm already on the mend. Not that it means much because the chronic fatigue never lets up.
