    Any idea how you contracted it? Surface? Aerial?

    Do you know or have an idea who gave it to you?

    How did you get tested for it? I've noticed that Texas hasn't conducted very many tests relative to its large population.

    What was the chronology of your symptoms?

    Did you need to seek medical assistance or did you just ride it out?

    Seriously.

    Did you actually get tested or did they diagnose with symptoms?

    Not exactly sure. I was in very close quarters two weeks ago with two people that tested positive.

    One of those two lol

    Yeah I didn’t get a test. My doctor said it was pointless in that situation and I agreed. Leave the tests for people that need it. It was obvious a few days ago that it was the virus.

    Have you ever had the regular flu?

    If so, how does this compare? If not, how does this compare to the common cold?

    Ok let’s see...

    Sore throat, Cough, my sore throat turned into a burning sensation and my tongue felt like I had scalded it, severe aches, lung capacity diminished (I’d say 50%)

    These last few days with the breathing shit. Tbh I think the worst part of that was the unknown. If it would get worse or not.

    Thanks

    I’ll add another scary part is my family. There’s 4 of us and I’m the only one so far that’s shown symptoms. Hope it stays that way.

    This is the best question. I can think of several things I’ve had that are worse BUT I’m sure it affects everyone differently so yeah. For me it wasn’t that bad other than the mental part of wondering if my lungs would knock it out.

    Its the weirdest feeling.

    I had this as well. I don't think I had symptoms as bad as you but the complete loss of taste and smell was real. It lasts about 5 days and comes back really slowly. I don't think it comes back as good as before as well.

    Glad your over the hump of it.

    It’s crazy. I’ve never had this symptom before with anything else. I never had a temp worth noting btw.
