“Actually, everybody’s tired – all the time. It’s just that you’re the only one who’s too lazy to work past it!”

– what it feels like the internet’s been telling me lately

A couple of weeks back, I received a positive result from a COVID rapid test. In retrospect, it may have been a false positive because a PCR test I took that same day (which is supposed to be more accurate) and a follow up rapid test both came back negative and I was experiencing no other symptoms.

Regardless, although I was feeling perfectly fine beforehand, as soon as I got that first positive result I thought, “Wait, do I actually feel fine? I have been feeling awfully sleepy today.” Never mind that I’ve felt sleepy every day for as long as I can remember of my adult life – at least this time I felt justified taking a nap in the middle of the afternoon.
