Hi all, I recently developed anxiety and depression about the situation that I am in. Let me brief you on the recent life story that has been hitting me and keep me in the dark.
It started on Friday night when my brother doing the RAPID test (Quick test for COVID-19) – The test detects both early marker and late marker, IgM/IgG antibodies in human finger-prick (capillary) or venous whole blood, serum, and plasma samples. (source: https://www.biomedomics.com/products/infectious-disease/covid-19-rt/).
There is only 2 result for this test: Reacitve and Nonreactive. Non-reactiVe means you are healthy and well. Reactive means you have weak antibody and your physical body is currently fighting against certain virus. This test cannot detect what kind of virus that enter your body. Some say the test result is inaccurate.
The procedure of this test is by taking your blood sample.
- Collect blood/serum/plasma sample.
- Add blood/serum/plasma sample to sample well.
- Place 2-3 drops of buffer in the sample well.
- Read results after 10 minutes and no more than 15 minutes.
I was furious to see his test result, and he immediately does self-quarantine and waiting for Monday to be able to do the PCR test. My sister trying to gather information, while I am sitting in my room in agonizing, try to think about what could have infected my brother. Who the person he got in touch with. And then my sister got information from someone – if the rapid test is reactive, mostly the PCR test result is positive. This person has encounter lots of her friends who have this virus, while around us nobody even told us if they suffer from COVID-19.
I am having a bad mood and blame my mother for it. So on Monday, he took the PCR test and then followed by myself who getting the Rapid test result on Tuesday – REACTIVE too. I immediately do the PCR test, the rest you can read on my DAYRE, click here – kindly read on mobile.
Just a little bit about Dayre is a blogging platform mainly for women. This platform is popular in Singapore. You can always share what is on your mind because the community is built to encourage each other. This platform is using paid subscriptions so only people within the community will and can read your blog, so if you have kaypoh friends or co-workers they gonna need to sign up and pay in order to read your mind. but not if you are gonna private so it is really fun if you wanted to trick these people into spending money and then when you actually lock it private they will be so annoyed to realize they have just spend money for this kaypoh stuff they do.
