I kept it to myself for three weeks. Its been three weeks of hell for me and my family. I had Covid-19 for about 3 weeks.
“For those who noticed I was in my room during my draw instead of my usual location. I was self-isolated, I was imprisoned in my own house and it was just me, I was sick and I tested positive.”
