    Any respiratory problem is extra bad because of asthma, and my GP heard pneumonia when I went in. My blood oxygen was kinda dumpstered (mid 80s) and, since I already have a clotting thing that COVID could exacerbate, she told me to get to the hospital when my test came back positive. I'm also lead to...

    Yeah, I seem to have lucked out and missed all of the potential clotting problems. I was really, really worried that would not be the case. The fact that I was already on an anti-coagulant probably helped.

    As far as permanent lung damage, all indications suggest it's unlikely. I appear...

    The course of this thing has been wild.

    Almost everything is gone. Head and body ache with a very slight fever is still around. I’ve been clearing a lot of mucus and sputum both by coughing and by blowing my nose. It’s kinda firm and cohesive rather than thin and watery —...

    Mike Perry posts hamburger video last week, misses weight by 6 pounds this week.

    Yeah, I actually asked the neurologist how to differentiate it from a plain old bad headache. I will always feel the head pain but it can cause some specific vision and hearing disturbances, too, so I keep an eye out for them as well. It’s sort of like an acid flashback with horrible pain :p...

    The possibility of a clot is what has me worried as hell. It resolved with medication again, they couldn't figure out what is causing it still. Not the coolest situation to be in.

    I got called to take a test through contact tracing, so I am pretty certain I know who passed it to me.

    The coughing is almost gone, so I'm hoping I shake it pretty fast. My experience is almost exactly what WPA described... insanely fatigued all the time. My biggest complaint is the body...

    I can distinguish between different tastes, but nothing is normal and it's like 5% of the normal strength. I got nuclear heat chicken wings the other night and they were still rough....

    There's certainly more to slowing infection rates than masks, but there's a reason other nations have more successfully flattened the curve than we have. We're just not buying in to the stuff we could do behaviorally that would make a difference. Sucks.

    Guess who got the bug... this guy.

    I went through a whole psychological process. First, I was pretty terrified, then I got some (maybe fake) courage, and then I was legitimately pissed.

    The anger kicked in when I was at the COVID clinic, which is an area within the hospital...
