Hi, I’m a microbiologist and I just wanted to tell you it’s going to be okay. I’m really sorry to hear how stressed you are and I’m glad you are isolating. It sounds like you’re doing a good job. There are definitely risk factors that can make symptoms worse but some people just have minor symptoms and recover with supportive care. Remember to be kind to yourself and if I can offer any help decoding science let me know. I love your blog and cats and hope you are well. Sending good health vibes

Thank you so much! I still have a fever this evening and I’m still feeling pretty nervous but everyone’s messages have helped me to calm down a bit. I will take some more tylenol before bed. I am exhausted from lack of sleep to begin with so all this doesn’t help. If I have any scientific questions I will be sure to ask! 🧡
