Holy shit that’s creepy. Did 100-meter-tall alien war machines march down the street right afterwards? That’s the stuff of nightmares. :lol:

I finished my isolation and am back home. Wife and daughter never tested positive but still have to isolate a few more days. I never had any symptoms and was lucky to have a place to isolate.

I’m hoping to get an antibody test some day as a way to confirm I did in fact have it, but will wait a bit.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Congrats, including surviving your time in a remote cabin with a crazed killer on the loose.

Glad to hear it. It would really be good to know why some people exhibit no symptoms.

I'm happy for you. How was your health over this whole episode? Were you under the weather at all?

Nope, no symptoms. Well, when I found out I tested positive, all of sudden every little discomfort was some raging symptom. But in reality, I coughed maybe five times in the ten days which is probably on par for healthy Matey.

I'm going to wait a couple days and go for a run to see how I'm holding up. I think I mentioned, but the day before my positive test, I had a very strong time on my six mile run in the hills. So cardiovascularly, I was fine right before the test.

My friend here just went through the same thing. He said it was a solid week of paranoid.

Last weekend I picked up some kind of bug that for about a day left me with the worst case of vertigo I'd ever experienced. Stumbling around, grabbing onto furniture, staying low as possible. The Boss immediately assumed I'd gotten the rona until she read that vertigo isn't one of the symptoms. And then I was fine the next day. She's been kind of uncomfortable the past ten months in assuming the worst in even the most innocuous experiences.

Oof, loss of equilibrium is so awful. You just want to throw up and it's all in your head and there's no relief that you have control over.

Hello,

I think I've stated this elsewhere but when my son tested positive, he ran 90 minutes of full field (120 yards) sprints every morning. His only issues were lack of smell and taste. He ran every morning until he got 2 negative tests - which meant he had to go back to work.
