Tuesday or Wednesday, had a mild headache on awakening that lasted until about dusk. I ignored it as a sign of anything bad impending. Dumb.

Thursday, I opened a new bottle of wine for dinner, and drank it all. Dumb dumb dumb.

Friday, I awoke from a dream in which I had caught a cold. But my throat didn't feel abnormal, I just had the usual stuffed-up sinuses I get on cold nights, and once I spit out some mucus, I shrugged off the dream. Went to visit friends that afternoon, and of course there was some discussion of the coronavirus. I said that due to my chronic respiratory problems, I probably wouldn't even notice if I got symptoms, at first. But right after that I started analyzing. By the time we were on our way home, I decided my throat was probably abnormal (i.e., producing cytokines), so I messaged a warning to my hosts. Now this morning I am sure my throat is a battleground. Going to fight this with probiotics for now. I have plenty of sauerkraut and probably still some yogurt.
