    Ya know I am sick to death of hearing Trump put the public at risk, didn't say how bad it is . Didn't do enough. Well let me tell you, I have a brain and I knew what to do from the get go. Im in a county where there are still Only 8 deaths. Everyone wears masks and they distance in public. Private well that's been scary...but knowing this I PROTECT MYSELF!!!! It's not Trumps responsibility, the states responsibility. It is only MY RESPONSIBILITY PERIOD!
    I take D,C, magnesium, potassium, B6, B12, E, zinc. Lost over 40#'s, exercise. If I get it well that is fate. If it kills me it was my time period. I wish someone would line a bunch of these whining blame everyone and take no responsibility pukes up against a wall, fanny out. Let my slip into a pair of steel toed boots and allow me to show the goalie skills I actually still have. I could drop kick a ball down field to the other goal. Yes I do wish.............

    We're up to 3 cases at my work, two are from one Dept. on day shift and the third is someone on nights. Today, the remaining 4 in the one Det. were sent home as at least one was having symptoms. The first gave it to the second, and it is believed that if the 4th tests positive, or the others as well, they contracted it from the 2nd.

    Have a feeling someone is going to call the Health Dept. or maybe even OSHA, crying unsafe work conditions. A few of them are under the imp[ression that if we are forced to close they will get Covid pay, I'm of the firm belief that it would fall under unemployment and I hear that is a nightmare here in IL right now(and has been for months). NO THANK YOU!

    We have cancelled my extended family Christmas, usually a 30 + people gathering. I am in favor of this.

    Add me to the list of positive for the Rona. Send me your good vibes if you are so inclined. Im not really scared, but it is kind of sobering.

    That sucks, symptomatic or precautionary from exposure?

    Hopefully you make it through unscathed or mostly so like most here have.

    Interesting to see the uptick in cases here on the forum coinciding with the uptick in cases world wide. Should be an interesting winter.

    Fletch, get well soon!

    Fever, hurt everywhere, headache, uncontrolled shivering and cough until I gag. So, pretty much the fun stuff.

    Maybe tomorrow, but right now Covid is juping off the top rope and fixing to smash me over the head with a metal folding chair.

    To be honest I was asked to host Christmas in July, hell no was the quick response.

    We will all chant Fletch if you are on the mat in a submission hold, and you will prevail.

    I'm sure it is just like any new flu strain in comparison, talking the spread and re-emergence, starts out in the major hubs and dense populations then in the next season it becomes more prevalent in the lesser affected areas as they do not have the immunity built up due to prior contraction. If we had a proper vaccine for Covid-19 I'm sure it would show results similar to a flu shot, probably moreso as it seems the past few years they have been a bit off with the flu vaccines as it is more of a presumptive guess at what strain to combat.

    Hope it doesn't turn any worse, how long have you had symptoms?
