I had the test yesterday and was absolutely terrified, I cried the whole way through because I thought the throat swab would make me gag, but I had someone do it for me and honestly the nose and the throat one was absolutely fine and I genuinely got scared for no reason.
Best of luck

I have aspergers syndrome and anxiety so honestly I can relate to how scary it is, dw they dont touch you tho it's just the swab that touches you. Yes I drove to a testing centre and got someone to do it for me as I was literally in tears and so scared that I couldn't do it myself. Nope, hoping I get them tomorrow so ik how much school I have to miss if I'm positive

They do it on your tonsils and I was so scared it would make me gag but honestly I barely felt it so dw, in the nose they do it up to 2.5cm I think and honestly it's not that bad either. I have a blocked nose, I had a sore throat and today I keep coughing up mucus and have shortness of breath

Getting tested is worse than having the covid symptoms, no cap.

It's worth it though to know. I think the best way to describe it is when you have a fizzy drink then you laugh and it comes out your nose. That like weird feeling :laugh:

Ahhhh so proud of you, I just kept going backwards and my mom had to push me toward the person taking my swab 😭

It’s been 8 hours and only now do I feel better after the swab stick(?) poking my throat and nose
