Covid-19 – Living in Fear?

Last week I had an unusual (for me) GI issue. Of course I immediately looked up Covid symptoms. I tried to stay calm and rational – I’ve been SO CAREFUL.

But still…I took my temperature, stayed in bed 2 days and messaged my doctor.  Then I waited as it passed and 2 days later was hiking again – albeit slowly as I was wiped out.

Now all better and my take home is that I cannot live in fear.
I can be vigilant and careful and channel my inner “Monk” (remember the defective detective?  He was beyond OCD.)  I learned in Chemo how to avoid infection/germs and have used all my best training to stay safe.  My gym students would laugh at my “rules” regarding cleanliness and hygiene.  They’re NOT laughing now.

The best and most important article I’ve seen on Covid-19 is by Erin S. Bromage, Ph.D., an Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.  It’s long, but take your time and get thru it and let me know what you think by commenting on this post.  Click on the link below:
