Grew up a UK basketball fan. Caught the scarlet fever from my brother-in-law when I moved to Ohio and watched my first OSU game at 13.

The fatigue was horrible. I remember thinking, is this my life now? Lol. Getting up to use the bathroom and telling myself to stay awake only to pass back out on the bed as soon as I tried to pass it.

I had it too. I lost my sense of smell and taste. The fatigue and body aches were the worst for me. I just couldn’t stay awake for a couple of days. Did you get the headache behind the eyes? Did it hurt to look with your eyes and feel like they were being strained? My highest fever was 100 but I felt like I was on fire.

So what happens when the essential workers go home? Are their lives not as important as the people staying at home? How many people freaking out about opening back up have not been in society for months? I had the virus. I was essential. It’s not world war Z outside. The fallout from the lockdown hasn’t even began yet. Meat production down 50%. If you think the toilet paper shortage was bad, what until the meat prices go up or people can’t afford to buy it. Sorry for the rant, I am just over all of this.

My entire work was wipedout. Only a couple had to be admitted to the hospital. Some tested positive but the vast majority were not tested. We all had the same symptoms. Some just worse than others. Judging from my experience at work, I would say a huge chunk of the population has contracted the virus and the testing is way behind. They are not even testing unless you meet a long list of criteria.

A nurse friend of mine in a different state, said they have stopped testing people with no respiratory issues and even when people do test positive they are being rejected because they are not falling within the guideline of symptoms. The truth is this thing is all over the place. The symptoms vary so much from person to person that they don’t know what the actual symptoms are. Positive test with zero symptoms in 50 year old out of shape adults and 30 something active adults being hospitalized. It’s all over the board.

It seems to be persistent for sure. Just won’t go away. The headache and mild body aches come everyday.

I feel like I am burning up sometimes but am never over 99 on the thermometer. Definitely different for sure. Take care of yourself. Go bucks

I know people who have tested positive. They think I have it now and I am on leave from work. I can tell you from the people I know who have tested positive, none have shown the symptoms described in the news. Very low to no fevers. No coughing. Just slight headaches. I have not been tested but I was put on leave because I was exposed and started having flu like symptoms. I have had a headache for 3 days. Not too bad. It hurts to move my eyes. I had a really bad body ache for a day and a half. Highest fever was 100. Most of the body ache is gone. The fatigue is rough. I slept for 20 hours straight. I get tired and take a lot of naps. I have had zero respiratory issues. None of the people I know who have tested positive, have had respiratory problems. Most showed no symptoms other than a slight headache. I am A- blood type.

Wow, Clemson calls a timeout on defense and gets a free shot at the QB with no flag. Looks bad on the refs. Should have been a personal foul.

I was with the same woman for 18 years. It ended last year and I had no idea what to do. I didn’t know how to move forward. I lost 40 lbs from stress. It does get better and there is light at the end of the tunnel. After a few months I started getting my confidence back. Realized I am the only person who can make me happy. So I focused on things I like to do and kinda rediscovered myself. After a few months she actually tried to come back but I was actually happier alone. I definitely would let her be. Anything you do right now will push her away. If she wants to be with you she will come back on her own. You never know, once you get over the hump your feelings might change. Just keep your head up and focus on making yourself happy.
