***Updated 4-22-20 with my test results. See below
I have always been good at taking tests. I am fortunate enough to not have test anxiety and also fortunate enough to learning things relatively easily.
However, as I pulled into the Coronavirus drive through testing station this morning, I actually did have a little test anxiety.
First of all, I was not looking forward to a long swab being stuck up my nose. A friend was tested a few days ago and she told me all about the swab.
The biggest anxiety, however, came from the thought of finding out that I was positive. While my age is not a major risk factor, my hypertension, which is under medicinal control, is a factor.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say my anxiety level is around a 5.
When I pulled up to my testing spot, the nurses asked me to rolled down my window. The verified my identity, scanned their testing kit and then they did the deed…the stuck the swab up my nose.
It actually was not too bad. I mostly tickled and made my eyes water. Even so I was grateful to be able to take the test.
The nurses told me I would get my results within 72 hours and then they sent me on my way. The entire process took less than 5 minutes.
If you want to, you can watch the video of my test below.
