All of my symptoms are gone and I've recovered, but now I can't smell shit. Literally! Was on the throne, it was such a weird experience.

The only things I can smell are perfume and deodorant, but only just. My nose is a bit stuffed as well but I'm not having a lot of trouble breathing. Gonna do the serology test at some point.
Are covid tests easy to get where you are? I would think about getting one, but I have no clue what the process is like where I'm at or how expensive it is
edit: yikes, you mentioned the lines for that are long. Okay, that sucks. In that case, I hope this is temporary and you get better soon.

Yeah, I got better already. My nose is stuffed and I can't smell anything. Other than that, I feel perfectly healthy. The symptoms I mentioned before have all passed, this is the only new one.

Serology/antibody test is a bit less than 20$ in a private clinic, and they haven't been certified to do PCR tests - only the state hospitals can do that and it's 50-60$ on request; if the doctor 'prescribes' it, I guess it's free if you're insured.

Three days ago i got sick (muscle and joint pain, headache, 37.9°C temperature) so my first thought was COVID. My mom works in hospital so immediately got tested - it was free and no waiting on lines. The doctor who examined me was 100% convinced it's COVID. Both of us tested negative. The whole day i was bedridden but recovered fast. Today i am feeling great.

Can't wait for the vaccine. I am surprised how many people in my country are reluctant to take it, even medics.

What test did you do? Well, at least you might be immune to it for a while, which is never a bad thing.

My sense of smell still hasn't come back though...

PCR. My mom arranged it for free otherwise it's 60-70$ here.

I know that losing sense of smell or taste is a key symptom for COVID.

Oh, well the PCR is sort of a gold-standard here. Surprising that you tested negative for it, but maybe it was the timing or something. Losing your sense of smell isn't exclusive to COVID-19, it can happen in any respiratory infection (but the only one circulating around is this one, so...).

Be warned though, losing a sense of smell and taste can last from a couple of days to a couple of months, and even then it may not come back fully or operate at 100% anymore. Sucks.

I don't believe i have immunity.I If i had it the symptoms would last longer. Took two Paracetamols during the day and all my symptoms were gone on the next day. Barely had any social contacts last weeks. My mom don't show any symptoms. She thinks that the chance for false negative result is very slim.

Cleaned out my keyboard today. Never did that with this one, had it for years now. Popped out all the keys and what I found there was horrifying. Lots of food and hair residue. Now it's like brand new!

Worst NYE ever. Doesn't have to do anything with the year itself. We went out clubbing in the middle of the day, but once everything was closed we weren't up for shit. Three of us guys, sleepy/half drunk, without anything interesting to do or anyone else to talk to, so I went home at least. Can't wait to get up sober the next morning and crush the next month.

Holy Santa's balls, sports has been on my screen since 15:30, and it's almost 2:30 now. Three more hours until I'm done for the week...

That moment when you realize someone from college would have been a great match for you but you've already graduated
sigh
