Yep. Omicron. A scratchy throat, some night sweats and just feeling mildly crappy. I was given ten days off from work, used eight and really, could've gone back after five.

Compared to other people, especially considering my age and heart problems, I lucked out.

I had the original Covid like 2 years ago (probably twice), it was just a one-day cold. Sugar has tasted nasty since then. It took 6 months before I could stand to drink milk again (just the slight amount of sugar in it made it horrible to drink), and I don't think my taste buds are going to recover any further. Which is a shame, because I liked making desserts, but it's pointless now as I can't enjoy them...  Cry

I'm glad I didn't lose my sense of taste. On the other hand, if I did, I wouldn't have just scarfed down two bowls of Blueberry Cheerios, and be considering a third.

But hey, maybe sugar's the problem. Maybe a different kind of sweetener would taste better. I have a little squirt bottle of monkfruit sweetener that I use sometimes. It's the best I've found.

I prefer the stevia to the monkfruit, but hey, to each his own.

I have a friend who had the virus last year and still can't taste.

That's something I really fear.

Losing my sense of taste would be almost like losing my reason for living.

Such is my love of food and eating.
