Hi, my name is Patty and I love art. I was known as "keirajo" over on Fur Affinity, but I have chosen to leave that site permanently as of April 30, 2015. About my username..."Keira-Jo" was an Echidna female I created for a Sonic the Hedgehog fan club back in 1996. When the fan club disbanded I used her in fan-fiction I wrote. She's been a big part of my life for a very long time, so I often use her name or image as my avatar when I am online anywhere.
Well, woke up this morning coughing a lot and used one of my at home COVID-19 tests—looks like I’m positive. I called my supervisor and have to call the City Nurse tomorrow to report it and cancel some upcoming doctors appointments I have this week.
I seem to be mostly asymptomatic right now—just a lot of coughing (which is making my throat hurt), plus an ongoing headache. So, I hope this is the most I suffer. I do everything possible to protect myself, but you can’t stop the idiots out there now that mask mandates have been dropped. :/ All mask mandates ended this week and then I get it, I think it shows how much masks helped out—I still wear mine going out everywhere, but losing one layer of protection (others wearing masks) increases your risks—even a small percentage increase in risk can make things happen. But I’ve been fully vaccinated with the booster as well—so, here’s hoping that I survive without the worst of everything. :)
With my positive diagnosis, it makes a ton of work for me, because of protocols from my job. Lots of hoops, I likely won’t return to work at all this week, even if I feel better and test negative in a couple days—at least I have a TON of sick time banked up. XD But this is certainly not the way I wanted to start my week…….!
