Default Well, I got the covid....

I'll be driveway campin for the next 12 days in Isolation due to covid. I had no symptoms until Thursday evening around 630. Started off with extreme weakness and fatigue. Then the fever hit about 10pm. Highest was 101.1 but I've held onto a low grade since then. Went to my doctor Friday morning and tested negative for Strep and Flu so she sent me to the hospital for a rapid covid test. 2 hours later she called to confirm that I was positive for Covid. Great.

So far the only symptoms that are persistent is this fever, muscle soreness and the chills. I do have a little pressure in my chest but O2 stats are staying in the 94-97 range. I have no underlying conditions luckily so maybe the symptoms will pass in a few days.

Any recommendations on what to binge watch while I'm stuck away from everyone for almost 2 weeks.

Good luck. Keep the fluids going. If you develop shortness of breath for a period of time, get to the hospital, you don't want to blow this off. I know!

Otherwise, binge Justified.

I went from personally not knowing anyone with it to all of the sudden knowing about 15.. something is changing..
A couple of cases have developed into very serious cases but the others were mild.. Oddly but thankfully the 2 oldest aged cases(75 nd 81)were pretty mild..

Welcome to the party! I tested positive on Wednesday. I only have some head congestion and headache. I can't taste or smell either.

The good part about this that when your wife cooks something you don't like, it doesn't matter because you can't taste it anyway.

Prayers for a quick recovery, brother!

Hope you recover soon.... Do you think you know where you caught it? Do you wear a mask? I guess what I'm asking is.... Is there anything you could have done to avoid it? I think I had it in April (had all those symptoms) but never got tested.

I have a personal friend who has it. Only symptom is loss of smell and taste. Thats it. No fever, body aches etc. My moms twin sister went into the hospital for Pancreatitis and she tested positive too. They treated her for the Pancreas and told her to let the covid work its way out. She left the Hospital in under a week covid free and feeling much better.

When I had it I binge-watched Narcos, Narcos: Mexico, and Ozark.

Watch your breathing and O2 stats. That can go south quick and if it does get immediate medical attention.

Prayers for you. I came down with something Wednesday night. Lost all sense of taste and smell, and have sever fatigue, but no fever. Problem is, in Lubbock, I cannot get tested until Monday to confirm. So I just sit and wait. Hope we all make it out of this alive!
