Not feeling well. Very fatigued. Headache. Dry cough. Difficulty breathing. Sore throat and an odd temperature drop to 96.2. I was not sure what I had, but I knew what I didn't have. I didn't have a cold. I didn't have the flu.

Experiencing the same symptoms as day 1 but only on a greater scale. Sleeping for 12hrs at a stretch. I could no longer walk from the bedroom to the kitchen with out stopping to rest and to catch my breath.

Feeling better. Coughing less. Temperature back to normal. Still dealing with fatigue and long stretches' of sleeping 10 to 12 hours. I didn't do a COVID test, because I didn't think it was necessary at the time. I had it. It wasn't that bad. I got over it quickly.

Oddly, and suddenly I developed intermittent gallbladder pain. I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years. I have not had beef or pork for over 40 years. I don't eat bad fats. I do eat olive oil, coconut oil, flax oil and vegan butter. I eat very little junk food. Pre-CV19 I was in good health. Out my door at 5am to walk up and down the hill I live on, 5 days a week, at a good pace, for 3 miles, with Big Sis. Each day that passed, the pain got worse. For the next 17 days I only consumed liquids, hoping it would help. No change.

Finally on day 18 of chronic pain, I visited a Surgeon.

On day 23 I went in for an Ultrasound. Results? No stones. No Sludge. GB appeared to be healthy. Therefore, I kept thinking I could solve the problem with diet and lifestyle changes....NOT....
