    They are saying 14 days here now

    But before they were saying 7 after no symptoms. I guess the symptoms will include the moss of taste and smell.

    Well I don’t think it’s looking to kill me but today has been a backtrack for sure. Groggy and achy. Let’s see how COVID likes a few shots of tequila. I’m over this shit.

    This is crazy shit @Matrix@Matrix. Glad to hear you’re doing okay man. Scary stuff. So let make sure I understand. You were around those guys on a Tuesday and started showing symptoms 3 days later, on a Friday?

    It would’ve been sometime between the 10th and the 17th. Not sure when I got it. I was around both of those guys a lot.

    Oh I’m not going anywhere. Btw, with no smell tequila shots are tasteless basically. My wife is under the impression that’s a bad thing. I’m not so sure..

    Sheesh. I’ve been quarantining to the house but I had to take the dog to the vet yesterday. Steered cleared of everyone, except the vet who was wearing a mask. They were taking temps of everyone coming in and only allowing 2 people in at a time, but the shit still worried me to death. Also went to Lowe’s a couple of days ago and touched their carts but didn’t have hand sanitizer when I left. I don’t want any part of the shit.

    Glad to hear it hasn’t been too awful for you. The smell and taste thing is so odd.

    Yeah I’m in an essential position so I’ll be going back in a couple of weeks. Good thing I suppose is I should be immune at that point. Everything I’ve read says that at least.

    Being that it was never confirmed he had the virus, I can imagine that's a good reason lol

    I don’t think a test is needed at this point but either way the experts don’t think it’s necessary.
    Yeah they should either add people that show symptoms (That speak up) or get us tested. I asked and was turned down. I told my doctor and he has no doubt I have it. I’m just ready to smell my food again. My family is getting pizza and I’m pissed!!

    Just having fun with you buddy. I like how you take it in stride and give it back when openings present itself. I have heard you get dehydrated easily, if that's the case make sure you drink lots of gatorade instead of water.

    You will be okay. You have kids and more than likely have built up a very strong immune system because of that. Plus you're not a dumbass so you're probably going to be taking vitamin c and being extra careful. No need to worry and cause your blood pressure to go up. Try to have a cool head for both sanity and health purposes. Remember there's an uplifting thread if you are ever down in the dumps.
