I want to start simply by saying that from early March I was extremely proactive regarding this new virus that was being announced. I was wiping down everything with bleach wipes including my shopping cart. My shoes, all my equipment. I was keeping socially distant from my clients. I was using hand sanitizer and washing my hands and even was videotaping to show clients my sanitation procedures. I saw a total of about fifteen people in the four days I was out of the house. I was very careful. March 20th, I got my first symptom. In the next four days, I became very ill, having so many symptoms – which shifted and changed, sometimes daily. A very dry cough and fever came first, unlike many I had a lower fever of about 99.9 never going above 100.5, it came and went off and on throughout the day, evening, sometimes skipping a day. Bizarre to think you are getting better to then crash the next day.

I do not like living in a house where dogs bark at every little thing. It makes my brain go crazy.
