I am a hypocrite. On Tuesday I went to the store to pick up my antiviral medicine. Lion can’t drive so I had to do it. I was fully masked in the store. Yesterday, however, we went to the bank with the truck and camper buyers to do the paperwork for the sale. I was not masked. I probably infected the new owners as well as the banker. In my defense, I probably already infected the buyers days ago before I realized I was sick. Of course, I have no idea who infected me. I had no illusion that the vaccination was going to protect me 100%. I just hope it helps me avoid being as sick as I might have been without it. I’ve heard it’s like the worst flu you’ve ever had if you aren’t vaccinated. I remember the worst flu I ever had. It was about twenty years ago and I was leveled for days. No, thank you. I’d rather have some sort of protection. For the record, I usually didn’t get flu shots back then. If I had gotten one, it’s probable I would not have been as sick.

I definitely overdid it yesterday. I took three extra-strength Tylenol before we left the house, but I was on my feet a lot. After the camper was gone (good riddance), I decided to lie down for a while. I wasn’t really wiped out, but I knew I wasn’t not wiped out. We watched TV, had some lunch, and then we both napped off and on. The lion took a shower, leaving the shower door open, but I didn’t think I should chance standing up any longer than absolutely necessary, so I didn’t take one. I made an easy dinner and we just vegetated.

The worst part of all of this is the horrible taste in my mouth that turns out to be a side-effect of the anti-viral. Blech. I mean, the worst part other than worrying about infecting Lion. He’s tested negative so far, but I don’t know exactly when I was infected so I’m not sure when I might have infected him. It’s possible his body has built up more immunities than mine. I hope so. I definitely don’t want him to get sick.

Maybe my symptoms won’t get any worse. I do feel better today. I haven’t taken any Tylenol. I’m waiting to see if I need it. I woke up with a sore throat, but that’s gone now. My nose is running that’s making me cough. I do have a few aches and pains, but I normally do so it’s difficult to differentiate between non-COVID aches and COVID aches. I’m working today, but I’ve told the boss I’ll do so as long as I can remain vertical. If I start to slump down in my chair, I’m out. Luckily, my commute back to bed is about twenty-five feet.

Wednesday was a big day for us. We sold our camper and truck. It was sad to see them go, but I can’t really enjoy them anymore. Mrs. Lion is under the weather, but so far (paws crossed), she has mild symptoms. She is taking the COVID anti-viral medicine with no side effects yet. I’m still testing negative for COVID, but not as energetic as usual. I’m horny which has to be a good sign; maybe better than a COVID test. I’m hoping that my lioness will be over this illness in a few days. We are both fully vaxed and boosted. She undoubtedly has the Omnicron variant.

I will be reviewing the new Holy Trainer V5 Nano male chastity device. It’s an exciting new development in off-the-shelf male chastity devices. I’ve done some preliminary testing and I’m very impressed. Stay tuned for the review. It’s ironic and annoying that I get horny when Mrs. Lion gets sick. I’m sure that I’ll be ready for her when she is feeling better. I’m happy to wait.

More Later.

Mrs. Lion tested positive for COVID yesterday. She was feeling under the weather for the last few days. I’m not feeling great either, but so far I am testing negative. Fortunately, we both have had vaccine and two boosters. Mrs. Lion shouldn’t get too sick. She’s got a prescription for the anti-viral that fights COVID. It’s been creeping up on her for days. It explains her difficulty with getting up the energy for sex. I hope the pills help her. We caught it within 24 hours of testing positive.

I’m sure that in the next day or two I will be testing positive as well. There is no way I can escape infection. We may go dark for a few days if we are both sick.  We’ll try to stay in touch.

I couldn’t figure out why I’ve been so achy lately. I mean, I’m usually achy, but this achy seemed over the top. When we hit our high temperatures the other day, it didn’t seem out of the ordinary for me to have a sinus headache. Any change in the weather can freak them out. Lion suggested I do a COVID test yesterday. I humored him. I was negative.

My sinuses were still whacky this morning. No big deal. The weather changed again to cooler temps. Again, it’s not unusual for my sinus to freak out. Lion suggested another COIVD test. I humored him. Crap! I’m positive. The tester showed positive as soon as I put the drops in it. It reminded me of my pregnancy tests that showed positive practically before I even peed on them. Lion tested negative this morning, but he’s feeling yucky too.

I called for a doctor’s appointment and got a video appointment for tomorrow morning. There was nothing sooner. Both Lion and I jumped online and found video appointments available with an “internet” doctor. I got through eventually and the antiviral prescription was sent to my pharmacy. I hope they have it available. From what I read this morning, the drug is readily available because most people don’t know it exists or have no idea how to get it. If one pharmacy can’t fill it, I’m sure there’s one around here that can do it.

Lion is arguing with an online doctor through his insurance to see if he can get an appointment to get the antiviral. I’m not sure if they’ll give it to him because he hasn’t tested positive yet. There’s a good chance he will because he’s been in close proximity to me. We both think he should take it prophylactically. He’s a less than patient patient. One way or another, he’ll get his drug whether we have to share the first doses of mine or not. I’d gladly give him my entire prescription to keep him safe.

I think neither of us will get very sick since we’ve gotten all vaccinations and boosters. However, Lion tends to get sicker than I do. I’ve wondered if he really gets sicker or if he gets “man sick”. Do men actually get sicker or do they just complain more? I don’t know how anyone can definitively answer that. He keeps asking me if I want to lie down. So far, it feels like a mild cold. I’m still working and I will unless I can’t manage to sit in my chair anymore.

Think about us when you hear COVID statistics over the next few days. I am, and Lion may be, included in those numbers.
