    I am too and also I learned that is pretty normal these days other than learning 98.6 when we grew up.

    Before going into a couple accounts last week, they took my temp, and I came out around 97.5 both times. Threw me for a loop as I've always heard 98.6.

    Unless I missed it, Tony Ray Bans how old are you? Also, what is and your wife's blood type if you know? The last question is relevant to some very preliminary research about who is more susceptible based on blood type.

    All day today. Sucks that my anxiety gives me chest tightness and short of breath. Took some Xanax and feel better but shit had me taking my temperature all day. Had my wife take it when I came out of the bathroom after rubbing one out and it was 99 something so I know what my “active” level is now.

    Hope you get better. Looks like your case will be pretty mild, watch out for worsening shortness of breath around day 8-10, otherwise you'll be in the clear by most case reports.

    The loss of taste and smell thing is very unique to COVID and so far I haven't seen a mechanism. We've actually added it to our screening questionnaires now.

    Any before anyone yells at me, no I didn't panic buy. The wife accidentally bought two giant packs of TP at Sam's back in Jan instead of one TP and one of paper towels. And since we still had TP at the time, we haven't bought any since.

    One benefit of living close to Costco and having a big closet is I usually keep two giant packs of TP and paper towels each so I was ready to roll for the panic.

    We were out of town when TPocalypse hit; our house sitter invited 2 friends to stay with her, and those broads crushed most of one of the big Costco bags. Starting to think they packed them back on the plane.

    We both were pretty serious about it. I would give myself a 7 (do it a lot but probably should have done it more thoroughly) The Mrs I would give a 12. Shes very anal about cleanliness and does a full 20-25 second wash every single time. Being in the medical field she is a pro

    Wife is experiencing tightness in her chest. Did y'all experience any of that, Tony Ray Bans ? Some COVID19 accounts seem to but not all. Certainly hoping it's something else bothering her. She isn't experiencing any other symptoms currently. No fever, no cough, nothing else.

    the hospital where I work is doing staff screening where they ask us a series of questions and then we get our temperature taken. They aren't allowed to tell us the result, they either let you in or not...kinda frustrating. Mrs. Celemo has misplaced the thermometer in the house and all I know is I don't have a fever...yet

    My bad dude! Neither of us had that. A mild cough but no chest tightness. Mostly some fatigue, chills, mild body aches and a little bit of a cough. Without the smell/taste thing we would have both assumed we had a cold

    My gf had tightness in her chest for around 4 days or so recently but never had any other symptoms. Finally went away and chalked it up to allergies. She did call teledoc bc it’s free through work and they didn’t seem very concerned.
