  • Allergies

    I have allergies with symptoms that mimic those of the Corona virus - runny nose, sneezing, coughing – I don’t panic. I simply take my temperature a couple times a day. No temperature no problem. If I feel the need for a Tyenol – general aches – headache – I take my temperature before taking it. No temperature no problem. I know my normal temperature range so can easily tell if I have even a half degree of temperature.
    Of course you should still be responsible around others, they don't know it is allergies.
