All ok up here, so far. Wife has been off work a couple of weeks now as she wasn't happy about working in a pharmacy where NO protection was offered or distancing was practiced. She's type 1 diabetic and 'prone' to get every cold going. My company closed down immediately after BoJo's speech on Monday evening. So we're just staying in apart from loading the dog's into the car twice (yes twice - naughty aren't we) a day and driving them to a quiet part of the park for a run. This isolation seems fine to us as we're pretty antisocial anyways! We hardly go out as there's no good pubs in walking distance so nothing to miss there. The only downside is that I couldn't visit my dear old mother last Sunday and catch up with the rest of the family.

Mrs Zero and I have both been at home for the week and we've both had our texts. Apparently there's a scam text that's being sent out which tells you you've been detected leaving the house and you're being fined - and it's spoofed so it appears on the same thread as the real text. There's a link in the text which presumably takes you somewhere evil. This came from Warwickshire Neighbourhood Watch and they have a screenshot of a phone with the message plus the government message, so it seems genuine.

Reassuring to know that the criminal community are pulling together to secure a positive outcome from these challenging circumstances. This is the sort of go-getting entrepreneurial flair the country needs right now. ;)

Went into A&E Tuesday evening with a pain in my left lung making breathing impossible. They kept me there for a couple of days until the symptoms started to ease up. I did get treated like I had Coronavirus and was put in isolation the whole time. The doctors sent me home because they said staying in hospital was too risky and I had a higher chance of catching it due to being very vulnerable.

Ever since I got home Thursday, I have felt even worse... I want to throw up every couple of hours full stomach or not. If I don't eat or drink anything, I am just throwing up the tiny amounts left in my stomach. I tried anti sickness tablets but they're not doing anything - not sure how long it takes for them to be effective. I'm also very tired all of the time and want to go back to sleep every ten minutes trying to catch some rest and then I feel sick again.

I'm supposed to get my Covid 19 result on Monday so will see if I did catch it. I had been self isolating for ten days before this all happened and felt okay.

Yikes, Tom - I'm not surprised you're worried. The vomiting thing certainly seems to chime in with what Tauzero was saying. It's hard to know whether to hope that the test result is positive or negative, isn't it? I mean, if it comes up as negative for Covid-19, you'll be left thinking "well what the hell IS this?"

Either way, I hope you're feeling a lot better ASAP.
