Can you Covid Relate?????

We all know that getting sick is never fun and there is nothing good about it……..Especially during this time of Covid -19. So here is a story that many of you may relate too. It all started on a Friday, with a regular yearly doctor check up. First the long waiting, filling out documents and then the nurse called me in. Well you know how it goes next.  This time my doctor strongly recommended I take the flu shot. To be honest I really don’t like taking it and I haven’t taken the flu shot in a long time. But I went along.
So, I took it. Went home like nothing happened. My weekend was great, went out with some friends. Nothing crazy, had dinner, some good beers and a great quality time. Then Monday comes and around 5am, I’m starting to get some fever, chills and my whole body was in pain.
Yes, I got scared, wasn’t sure what to think. Immediately took my temperature, did some breathing exercise to make sure I was not out of breath……that I could breath? And this may sound funny, but I took a bite of pizza at 5 am just to make sure I could still taste food. Everything seemed to be fine, besides the symptoms I already mentioned.
Obviously, I had to call my job and let them know what was happening and I was not going to the office. After that I decided to take the Covid Test to make sure (same day). Also, I called my doctor and she was pretty sure it was because of the flu shot.  Next day just got worst, couldn’t eat, I was vomiting and my body was in so much pain!
Got the results after 3 days, it came out negative, but I was not fully recovered. So, my doctor recommended I re-take the test, but to wait 5 days before taking it.  I did it. By then I was feeling much better, just weak, but ready to work and trying to have a life.
Basically almost 2 weeks went by. Got the second results back and still negative. I’m extremely happy to know that. But I have never got the flu this bad. Went through scary moments, thinking I may have Covid and that I could pass it on to my family, coworkers and friends. I took as many precautions as possible. I isolated myself completely, not even my cat was allowed to be in my room. I was wearing a mask every time I needed to walk out of my room and did laundry, almost every day.
My point is; Don’t be naive. The whole world is going through this situation. We all have to be careful. Keep doing your part to keep the rest of us  safe, healthy & happy. Wear mask, wash your hands, get tested regularly and keep your distance.

Glenn began in the “family business” more than 30 years ago, by coming to work for his Father, Martin Greenhouse. He often recounts how nervous he was, when at 19 years old his Father forced him to pick up the phone and speak with David Suskind. This was to be the first of dozens of phone calls and meetings to come for Glenn……with Celebrity Clientele. Glenn considers himself very fortunate to have spent his life working at a job he truly loves and as he puts it: “earn a comfortable living at the same time.”
