Employer depending, working from home until you feel better/less symptomatic is probably the right approach. But not everyone has that luxury and it's at the point that if you have things booked etc, you either go or lose your cash.
How daft is it that you can't register a positive covid test if the kit you got wasn't free from the NHS? At least that's what the gov website told me and my Chinese pharma kit had no barcode or strip ID. Seems a bit short sighted but I guess they're past being bothered about that now.
I've got access to headspace, which I also like, especially the sleep sounds. I think half the problem is the alarm goes off at 6 anyway, so my mind just shrugs and says "you'll be awake shortly anyway, night as well get up". And it's not all bad, it's the only time I get to myself, but does mean I am shattered by 9ish.
Welp, just had photopsias. It was like a lightning-shaped tear going from one corner of my vision until near the center. The inside was like a bunch of colored triangles slowly rotating. Lasted for about 10-15 minutes. Very trippy, but kinda scary.
For context, I've been dealing with a fairly bad cough for the last few days, and migraines have not been uncommon. My head kinda hurts now too (not the eyes, luckily). It was probably just that, so nothing too worrying, but still? Wish I could go to a doctor to get it checked. Unfortunately I have to leave the town and move back home next week, so getting an appointment right now would be a bit of a mess.
Whatever it was (and this cough as well), I sure hope I can last another seven days without any irrepairable damage.

Mr Wonderstuff: Chopper gang reporting in together ZX-Spectrum 48k. Always wanted a Grifter though.

EMarkM: I had friends with Grifters and Commandos. I had a Rancho (I think: I can't find it online this morning!), though, which I suspect was a cheaper version. I never had a Chopper, but did have the Budgie

zagibu: Why is it even called grapefruit? It has absolutely nothing to do with grapes.

zagibu: I wanted to write s o c c e r, but there is a mischievious autocorrect in place that changes it to football.

zagibu: But coming back to the PE teacher topic...my PE teacher kept a pair of extra gay short shorts from the 70ies in his bag for people who "forgot" their sports bag at home. I had to wear them many times.

Aunt Alison: Can't read that as anything other than my PE teacher had this great pair of extra gay short shorts that he let me wear

zagibu: Well I can't deny that a small, somewhat female part in me enjoyed flaunting my thin, pale, hairless teenage legs in their full glorious length in front of the whole crew. Thankfully it was before the camera phone era.
