After two years and change, I finally tested positive for COVID in early August
I woke up at four in the morning on a Sunday after a cycling event with a mild sore throat. I ignored it and went back to bed, sleeping in until about...1130 #recoveryiskey Then, I went out to lunch and ice cream with a friend because I felt fine!
Until I didn't...my body progressively became achey and my throat increasingly sore. But an initial COVID antigen test showed negative. Huh.
The following day (Monday), I was feeling worse for the wear and a second antigen test showed a faint second stripe. I texted my friends a photo, "I think I'm positive!?" And so began my solo COVID journey.
The official notice supplied by Kanagawa Prefecture for COVID positive cases sheltering in place. I submitted an application and received this certificate three days later (personal details have been whited out).
