Came back home from visiting my mom, and I had a sore throat. That has now turned into a stuffy nose, chest congestion, and a Barry White voice. This morning I lost my sense of smell and taste. I hope it's not covid; all the testing sites near me were closed today or needed an appointment. Mucinex seems to help.

@xmanmonk ugh, that sucks! Good luck with the testing! You'd think we would have this problem solved, but alas we don't

@xmanmonk Hopefully, you are just hyper-aware of common cold symptoms! I know I would be. Also, I can't even remember the last time I had a common cold.
I guess I need to cut back on the D3 and sunshine eh? :-)

@Gemlog I remember a cold that affected my hearing so that people sounded like Don Adams ("Maxwell Smart"). It was not cool like someone commented, it was annoying. One time the flu was going around, i contracted it, I took 35000 IU Vit D3 in one dose. Felt gross for ten hours but great the next day. Took two weeks for my fellow sickies to recover. @xmanmonk

@xmanmonk that's pretty troubling to hear. Hope you and she are both feeling alright now, or very soon from now. We keep getting little colds which disrupt everything until a negative test result comes in.
