Life at times can be very ironic. In the past, I’ve written several posts, including my last post, about heading to work to pick up my personal items. Well, it turns out that I woke up this morning with a bit of a stuffy nose. It was very mild and there was no mucous involved, as you might have if you had a cold.
Since mid-March, I have not experienced anything close to have a stuffy nose, but today, the day I was supposed to go into work, my left sinus had a bit of congestion. So, I faced a bit of a dilemma. The instructions from work state that no employee should come into the studio if you have any of the following symptoms: cough, trouble breathing, fever, congestion, nausea, diarrhea, and some others. I find the diarrhea one odd. Diarrhea is fairly common in my opinion and it can be caused by many things other than a virus.
Anyways, I did have a bit of nasal congestion and if I wanted to follow the instructions to a tee, I should not have gone in today to get my stuff. So, out of an abundance of caution, I stayed home today. I felt fine otherwise and by the early evening, the congestion was gone.
I don’t regret being careful. Being careful should be the norm these days. I wish more people were more cautious. Luckily, there are a few more spots next week where I can come get my stuff. I was able to re-book for next Wednesday.
