    Thanks for all of the continued well wishes. I believe I'm officially out of the woods now. On Thursday and Friday, I was feeling pretty terrible. As a matter of fact, now that I feel better, I didn't realize how bad I actually felt. That's something I didn't expect from this. It also hit me psychologically.....although that may just be a product of my own personal issues and totally unrelated to Covid-19. I'm not sure I can describe it accurately, but I was feeling extremely depressed; more depressed than I have been in a long time.

    Christina, my fiance, got tested on Saturday and got her results in 24 hours. She tested negative, which to me makes no sense. We live together and sleep in the same bed. We have been intimate throughout my illness too. Now I wonder if she already had it and was asymptomatic and gave it to me. Tim, any thoughts on this theory?

    Anyway, I plan to get tested tomorrow and hopefully get a negative test so I can get back in the office. Like Tim said, things are getting crazy for us right now and the extended corporate tax deadline is September 15; right around the corner.
    Glad to hear you are on the rebound. If I had the Covid in January, I felt fatigued and had some shortness of breath issues for several weeks after I didn't feel physically sick. I think it would be nearly impossible for your fiancé to not get infected living in the same house let alone intimacy etc. My guess is that she either got a false negative result and is asymptomatic, or previously had it and if she had it recently may test positive on an antibody test.

    Lots of people report mental effects, could be a lot of things. Stigma from getting it, fear resulting from the MSM "reporting" (fear mongering) of the potential negative outcomes, or even an actual component of the disease itself...Lots of people report similar though.

    Matt, good to hear you are coming out of it. I have read about the psychological effects such as depression. I think it is good that you made this thread because if anyone here gets it, they might be more aware that depression may be a side effect that they can expect. If they or we are more aware of expectations, even though they widely vary, it could help them deal with it better and know that it is temporary until it clears.

    All the best.
    Helping one person may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.

    Good to hear! Even though we hear stories of the threat being overblown, there is always the wonder if it might not go good.

    Glad you are on the back end!

    Quick Update:

    Yesterday, Christina and I went and got tested again. Our results just came in and I came back as positive and she is still negative......

    Obviously, I'm not happy. Guess I'll have to go again next week and get that swab shoved up my damn nasal cavity. Maybe I'll get tested Monday, my birthday, lol.

    I am mind-blown how my fiance can be negative for this shiit. To me the only explanation I can come up with is that she is the one who gave it to me...

    Exactly! The only explanation is that she had it and has the antibodies.

    Honestly, I wouldn't really care about the negative result except for I have to have one in order to get back to work at the office.

    Glad to see you on the mend Matt!

    This virus seems to have some cross over immunity from some of the coronaviruses that affect us as the common cold. I've seen a number of cases of one person in a family being ill and nobody else getting sick. I currently have three congregants with family members that have been ill for over a week and none of the rest of the family in all three cases has gotten ill.

    Out of the three only one is really having difficulty and is hospitalized.

    I seem to have forgotten how to embed the youtube videos? I'll try again (nope... didn't work, here's the direct link)

    Hey Busta, you still hanging in there?
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.

    Sorry I didn't update the thread. This forum has lost it's marbles with Covid-denying it seems so I figured nobody was interested.

    I finally got a negative test on Thursday, August 27 and went back to work the next day. I actually went to see a physician, so I got some good information from him. He was genuinely very upset about how the Pandemic has become so politicized and I agree wholeheartedly.

    Correction, it has lost it's marbles on numerous topics that we can see with our own eyes.
    Glad you seem to be back to normal, not everyone is.... after a rumble with Covid.

    It certainly has become politized unfortunately. I don't see many people denying that the virus exists. I see people pushing exaggerated claims of the virus effects and lethality as well as people underplaying the potential effects. The same thing has likely gone on forever. Was certainly a component of the flu of 1918, Hong Kong flu 1968, even reports going back to the plagues in 1500s (usually until it got there lol). The data is now there to show who needs to worry with this one, at least to some extent. The fact is most who will get COVID-19 will have a complete recovery without the need for medical intervention. Many, specifically in ages over 65, or with significant comorbidities will require medical interventions, and some of those will not be effective and people will die. Communicable diseases specifically targeting the lungs typically kill around 3 million annually worldwide. As of today COVID-19 is reportedly a cause of 870,000 worldwide (This is likely undercounted in terms of ability/willingness to test in some countries, data fraud in others). I think many just want to see a balance where the cost of mitigation does not result in future effects that could be more detrimental to the populace than the disease itself.

    Good news, Matt. Glad you are out of it and healthy.

    Glad you're back on track. Hopefully, you're back training too.

    There has been a bit of an uptick in cases here locally due to a big birthday party at the Country Club where a bunch of folks ended up sick. I just talked last night to an online doc and have a script for HCQ coming. My wife has been using it for about 5 weeks already.

    Son has had cough about a week. My wife and I both got it. My wife has not been feeling great and her doc wanted to give a covid test.

    Prior I had called my son's doc and they did not think it was necessary to test.


    I am feeling a little run down. Persistent tickle cough. Extra mucus in chest. Not horrible, but enough to listen to my body and take last night off gym and just rest.

    I am going to do light workout tonight.

    So we get results back Sun.....

    Sorry to hear this man.

    Are you in an area with an uptick in cases? I'm surprised your results will take so long.

    How's the smeller? That was my main indicator.

    I am in NC. My son has had lingering cough and been tired for about 10 days. My wife and I both got same thing.

    All it feels like to me is being run down. A little discolored mucus if I clear my sinuses, and a tickle cough.

    My wife feels like she got hit by truck. But she has bad sinuses all the time.


    I spoke with my sons Dr yesterday and they did not really think it was anything to be worried about. My wife called today to get in to see a Dr and they wanted her tested. Could just be a plain old cold.....

    I upped my zinc yesterday to 60mg and gonna get good rest. I actually feel a little better today than yesterday. Who knows....now everyone is paranoid!

    I think they are doing the tests that take a little longer to get results because the 'quick' tests have proven so unreliable.

    Will update for sure. Thanks for well wishes.

    it fits if the numbers are accurate

    I was lucky that we found a clinic that does the PCR tests and guarantees results in 24-48 hours. I believe they are with a Hospital system with it's own lab. Keep an eye on your ability to smell. If you lose it, you likely have Covid. But, as we discovered, everyone has differing symptoms.
