Day 5: I Spoke Too Soon…

I was arrogant. I was overly confident. I spoke too soon.

I totally thought I had turned a corner with my COVID-Vaccine shot symptoms and I WAS WRONG! I woke up with so much pain in my arm pit, of all places. It was so tender to the touch and when I lifted up my arm, I gasped! It was soooo swollen!

I immediately told Dr. Google and he quickly reassured me that it a side effect of the shot.. a rare one, but none-the-less, a known side effect. I exhaled in relief and got ready for work, noting that the pain isn’t that bad and otherwise, I felt fine.

I was arrogant. I was overly confident. I spoke too soon.

My student teacher was in the middle of teaching reading and the headache started. Soon after that, I started sweating uncontrollable, followed by shivering. The swollen lymph node started to bother me even more and as the symptoms starting compounding, I wished I hadn’t spoken those over zealous words out loud.

Not to jinx myself again, but I think I’ve turned a corner- for real this time. Time will tell. Hopefully I’ll have something new to blog about tomorrow!

  1. I love this! I laughed out loud when you wrote, “I immediately told Dr. Google…” The way you give the search engine so much authority and sarcasm all in one! I also enjoyed the repetition of your title to show this happening again and again. Well done!
