Would the business still be profitable if you paid $15? That's only $200 more a week.

Yeah the business is very profitable these last two years.This spike in deaths have been very good to us. It would be more than just another $ 200 a week, the payroll taxes and the workers comp plus just more BS that you have to deal with.If I'm out, the overtime that we would have to pay would be huge too. Most weekends and holidays , I'm out there delivering.If our driver is out in SB,I sometimes get up early around 4am and get going to get the deliveries made......My brother didn't even realize how much that I was doing until I got sick.I've always just gone to work whether I've felt good or not...

This is tough, I hope that I am just real slow to beat this, I might wait another week or so, but if this is long haul covid, I'm gonna sell the business or shut it down until I heal up... Just thankful that we've saved our money.....Did learn from reading online that one of the things with this is that blood stays in the legs and if you prop your feet up that it helps when you stand up...

Near West Side, beautiful Clev...
Our first acquaintance who got it was laid really low, although it sounds like you got it worse.
He is president of a small company and (I would guess) is in his young 50s.
He is also the elected head of our local Community Development Corporation.
Two months after he had it (in April) we had a small (10 person) widely spaced meeting in our back yard.
We were al suprised that he had had Covid. Weakness and symptoms were such that he said that this was the first time that he had left his house. He had two full workups to check for residual effects..
Like you, he said that he was not sure that he would ever get over it - but he had. Still quite tired. But with as sharp a mind as ever.
This was before news about people getting heart problems had come out. A mutual friend said that he has continued getting - slowly - better
I hear stories like his and yours and am even more supportative of making control mechanisms a priority, whatever it is doing to business.
Sounds like depression is a problem for you. Do talk to loved ones and if you can bite your male macho lip even a professional.

But most of all, follow Lee's advice. Tele-medicine is cheap and your knowledge of symptoms is the first thing they want to know. Do it. Anything is better than it impacting your whole life.

I get my second shot in two weeks. Anthony Fauci said that the Moderna vacc (what I got/will get) really knocked him out for a couple of days. Better than your story.

Yeah pogo, yesterday I was depressed and I never get depressed Today I feel some better.I'm watching my heart rate and oxygen levels. The oxygen levels have always been good, but when I'm sitting the pulse is 68-74... then before today everytime that I got up my heart would quickly go up to 95 and sometimes over 100, just walking 10 ft.Then when I would sit back down, would go back to the mid 60's to low 70;s.....Today though the pulse rate is only going to the mid 80's when I walk around. I walked outside to the truck which is not far and I was give out when I got back, but heart rate was still in the 80;s. Today is the first day in about a week that I don't feel chest pressure around the heart area...

I've been researching LONG covid or long hawl covid and there needs to be more reporting on it....I called my doctor two weeks ago when it hit me again in the second week. She gave me a steroid pack and told me to take vitamin D3, vitamin c and zink...I hope that none of y'all get this.
