    I'm surprised you guys got through screening to be tested with such mild symptoms. Was getting approved for testing a pain in the ass?

    My theory is that we only got tested because the Mrs runs a very expensive, very exclusive nursing home. Shes pretty important in that world and they need to know if she has got it for sure

    Did you have almost like a buildup on your throat that needed to be cleared constantly? I’ve had the weirdest sinus stuff where my nose isn’t stopped up but I feel like I’m constantly clearing my throat...

    As quickly as capacity will allow yeah. Some of the big big names got private testing from who knows where (Kendra Scotts mom, Elija Wood's mom, Dr. Goodenough, the nobel prize winner who invented the lithium ion battery are all residents so there is some serious pull in the facility).

    I think a lot of us including myself are playing the “allergies, cold or COVID?” game. I’ve had an irritated throat, light nasal drip and on and off head ache for a little over a week which I’m attributing to the early pollen dump we are getting with the early heat here in Bama. Did have a low fever last week but that’s probably only bc I’m checking it daily like a mad man. Normal for human temp to get up in the 99’s for various reasons unrelated to illness. Just telling myself to relax and try to not focus on every single feeling of malaise

    Ive also been more tired than lately when I get home from work but I’m in supply chain so I’m constantly stressed and under duress throughout the day. Headaches on and off... again, attributing it to mainly stress and allegories... but IT COULD BE THE RONA maybe...

    Kind of what I was thinking. If I knew the symptoms would be as described here, sign me up and get those antibodies in.

    Pretty wild how this virus spans the spectrum from zero symptoms at all to death. Is that normal?

    I think that relates to the “novel” factor. No previous exposure or immunities makes it hard to predict who will react well or poorly to it, or whose immune system might overreact

    I’m not a doctor that’s just how I’ve been reading into it

    Has there been anything about the amount of the virus you're exposed to and how it correlates to the severity of symptoms? I feel like I saw something about that early on but don't really remember.

    Mid 97’s checking in. There was some article about how internal human temps are dropping and there really isn’t a good answer but I’ll save my climate change theory for another thread.

    Yeah I saw something about viral load but it's so early that nothing has really been studied extensively enough to have a definitive answer. I've also seen stuff about different blood types but again the evidence is weak

    Definitely. I love cooking, as long as my steak is rare-med rare with a nice sear on it, my meats are smoked properly or there is a well balanced contrast im good. Spicy, sweet, and smokey I enjoy the most.

    every day around 4-6, my temp is at 99.3 or so. i panic that i have it but i turn off the heater in my living room and it goes down to 98.4. it’s probably being hungover and having the scaries.

    will i learn my lesson tomorrow? nope

    there is a nursing home in Little Rock that is up to 30 with positive tests. None, at my mom's to date. Hope they caught your wife's quickly. Really hope y'all continue to have limited issues with this thing. Do you live in 78741?
