Got the rona, here's what it feels like

Timeline proves it in my mind from contact with the grandfather and their onset of symptoms. Both parents were vaccinated months ago. They are both very careful about public exposure. The two boys have been with my wife and I for the last ten months 5 days a week and they have had no other outside contact.

See, and logic says that I got it from Monello but he could just as easily gotten it from me, or we both got it from someone else. I don't think they even know how it spreads, given that they were all about plexi barriers for cashiers.....who are handling every purchase you make along with cash.

:crazy:

Well apparently I am going for round two, so I will let you know if it's any different. Already it feels more "chesty" than the first time, when I really didn't have much of a cough at all. Haven't re-lost my smell so that's a plus.

So am I understanding correctly- both parents who were vaccinated got the ‘rona from their 5 year old kids? How bad are the parents symptoms?

Not quite the twins were symptomatic first as they were all over their Grandfather on a Sunday, he tested positive on Monday. In the hospital on Wednesday. Twins symptomatic on Tuesday tested positive on Wednesday. Daughter in law symptomatic on Thursday tested positive the next day. Parents are still dealing with smell taste issues and full on lymphatic issues, fever aches etc. This has transpired over the last two weeks.

Best wishes for a full recovery, this has the ability to last months.

What makes you think it's the rona and not just a normal boring bug?

That's a real question because the only thing that made me think this was covid and not a random flu bug was the loss of smell and taste.

Just wow! Hopefully full recovery for all.

Just sneakin' around....
We all should have been on vacation in Upper New York state, so much for those plans and reservations...
State of Emergency has been declared for Long Island and portions of upstate NY, so it might have been tough going anyway.

Take care. Hope everyone feels better quickly

Hope you recover soon. I try to keep up on the forum. Did you get the vax? Just wondering. You can say nunya biz.

Got the test. I was getting the phone calls/texts for being exposed and had "symptoms" (basically anything other than perfect health) so I did the drive through free test at the place by the hospital.

Hope you recover soon. I try to keep up on the forum. Did you get the vax? Just wondering. You can say nunya biz.
Thanks. Yes got the vax, and also had the rona like 8-9 months ago.

That is what my son is experiencing now zero smell or taste. His lymphatic system is reacting strongly too. All 4 (two 5 year old twins) members of the household got it from their non vaccinated grandfather. The twins boys kicked it in two or three days fevers, things taste funny etc. Daughter in law was next then finally my son tested positive. We all should have been on vacation in Upper New York state, so much for those plans and reservations...
Yikes. I hope they all get better sooner rather than later!

Two weeks from onset of symptoms:

Smell is mostly back. I washed my hands and noticed I could smell my lemon bergamot hand soap. So I went around smelling things - teriyaki sauce, shampoo, hand lotion, woosterstire sauce, etc - and I'm at around 75%.

I've been taking Airborne every day, which may or may not have anything to do with my recovery but certainly can't hurt.

I don't feel bad at all. Still a little stuffy but that appears to be going away as well, which may be why my smeller is recovering.

Background: I am 57 years old. Not a spring chicken but not in the danger zone. No health issues, typically a fast healer and recoverer, I don't get sick often and on the rare occasion I do it doesn't last long.

Not gonna lie, the first week of this wasn't fun but it certainly wasn't worth shutting down whole countries, destroying the economy, and shooting dogs over.

My Neighbor had the 'rona this past week, laid up in bed ... isolated in the basement
He thinks his daughter brought it back from Ocean City partying with her friends

The question is - if it wasn't the 'rona, were you sick enough that you would have stayed home and isolated for 2 weeks or would you have done what you normally do for something like the flu - stay home a couple days and then back off to work or whatever your routine is?

Do we have any evidence or studies that you are really that contagious after 5 days or a week? I keep saying we have to learn to live with this but under the current guidelines - 2 weeks of isolation doesn't work for most people. Kids can't miss 2 weeks of school. Small businesses can't afford to have their employees out for 2 weeks and of course a lot of employees don't have the vacation time to miss 2 weeks of work. So really - what is the data on the viral load and infectiousness of this virus after a couple days, a week? Is 2 weeks really necessary to "slow the spread"? I really haven't been reading the data on this part of it so I just don't know. Anyone?

That's the thing, the data is all over the place and you play hell trying figure out what counts as what in the data. Looks to me that you can't rely on the traditional govt run sources any more...or we never should have to begin with.

As many people as I come into contact with - when I was doing events at KOA and then my short lived job at Publix, not to mention rolling through a number of states that weren't locked down or taking any meaningful precautions - if it were really that contagious I'd have gotten it long before now and so would Monello. We only really had isolation for a month in New Braunfels in March/April 2020 where everything was closed and there was nothing fun to do. Other than that we've lived normally and the cities we've been in were operating like usual.

Also the very fact that our overlords who are making these edicts - Fauci, Pelosi, Biden, Michelle Obama, Larry Hogan, all of them - aren't abiding by their own hysterical demands. Fauci himself - Mr. Double Masks for Kindergartners - has been photographed numerous times at ball games and whathaveyou not distancing and not wearing a mask. Hogan posted a vid just yesterday on his own FB page showing him hobnobbing up close with a bunch of people and not wearing a mask. Pelosi and her ritzy fundraiser, all those freaking dinosaurs huddled around a table not wearing masks. Joe Biden freaking coughed into his hand during a speech and just kept on going. Then there's Mike and Barry's soiree in Martha's Vineyard....

So this "pandemic" must not be all that if those turds aren't worried about it. They just want to perform these breathless diatribes and make us worried about it, and it's pretty amazing that anyone is falling for this nonsense.
