    Hello
    My GP thinks I have it and am on day 3.
    Feeling frightened as I have a seven month old and a three year old. Trying to act normal for them but am exhausted.
    Anyone got anything to give me hope? Am fed up of people saying "you will be okay, its the people with long term conditions you should worry about"
    If you have had it, how were your bloods etc?
    Thanks.

    Hope you get well soon. Have your blood sugars been higher than normal? Im assuming like any virus, blood sugar levels would be raised....... It would be interesting to know as it could help others identify if they have it.

    If anything, they have been lower than normal. But, am extra paranoid to keep on top of them and not distracted as much so probably managing better. It's very hard to tell but certainly don't think they have been higher than normal.
