My wife and Zach tested positive today.They both got sick on saturday afternoon/night. Both had fever and headaches. Zach has a sore throat and a cough....Wife has cough and is tired....Neither has fever now.... Last Monday when I found out that one of my wife's coworkers had tested positive, I moved to the other side of the house.She teased me about it until Saturday. I have no symptoms and feel great, I've been working as usual but I am wearing a mask every time that I get out which is not often. I almost peed in my pants this afternoon because I didn't want to stop at a business.I'm not going to be drinking water much tomorrow....

They seem to have the worst behind them. Zach laughed when they called to tell us that he was positive. He said that now he'll be able to tell his children that he had covid in 2021... I told him that I just hope that he'll be able to tell them that his dad didn't get it.....

Hey, think positively, get your rest, and follow the doctors orders.

You'll get thru this, let me know if you need anything Martin. Hope Zach and the missus are doing better soon too.

Thanks again John... I was kinda teasing, Ofcourse it's nothing to joke about but I'm in decent shape and the wife and zach's symptoms have been on the mild side... This is a different feeling that i've had when a flu has set in.This is draining.... no breathing problems of shortness of breath, nothing like that but just weakening,,,, I'll be ok...

Martin, if you have any questions you can pm me. My wife is a nurse at the local health dept. and can probably answer any questions you have.

Thanks Carolina..... I feel much better this morning. It was almost like the virus kept getting more intense until I went to bed.I've never seen an intense fever like that. It was 102 and then when I went to bed and was still for a while and it seemed to let up. I woke up sweating like crazy about 4 hours later.I have my strength back this morning too. No real symptoms now, but I'm going to have to stay home for atleast a week.I feel guilty working my brother and driver while I sit at home, but I just can't risk giving this to anyone else.

I haven't had a flu in 5 years. I had a 24 hour stomach flu then and it was much worse than this....

I actually sympathize. No one should have to go through this.
I am tempted to make several political points but I will control myself as I have come down on you for doing exactly that.

Our very healthy 30 year old neighbors went through a week of, literally, symptomatic crap, similar to what you describe with additional disgusting specifics.
Their two year old wasn't bothered in the least.
They are back at work as teachers (mostly remote.)
Take care of your loved ones.

My wife got her first shot. Mine will probably be next week.

Lord have mercy.... this is the worst thing that I've ever had.... last time that I had a fever was friday so monday I started doing a bit more and then yesterday I did a little bit more.... it KNOCKED my A^^ out!.. Fever back, I can't even walk from the guest room to the other side of the house with giving out. I had worried that my oxygen levels must be low so I had my brother get me a pulse oximeter that measures your oxygen levels....

My doctor said that I just need to rest and take vitamins....Might take another week or so to get back...
