Had classic flu symptoms all day, but it turned out to be Covid. Headache, chills, weakness, etc. I expect to blow through this in a day or so. We shall see.

Sorry to sound cocky....
How do you know it isn't the flu...because the test swab said it was covid?

Took the test. But sure, I suppose it could be flu. Never had it in May, though.

Wanna spot me for a flu test? It might help put your mind at ease.
If you get sick......and you have to tough it out.........what good is a test?

You're sick.

A test doesn't get you better any faster.

Just curious why people are now so quick to "get tested".

Curiosity, mainly. And the kits are about to expire. In addition, I was just reading that Ch-na supposedly has a new variant, and it's spreading rapidly.
Yeah, it hits everybody different. My father and I were early adopters in 2020, I was pretty much asymptomatic except it hurt a little when I smoked, he was bedridden for almost a week, lost a lot of weight, and could barely breathe. I hope you make a quick recovery man, my thoughts are with you.

My mind is at ease.
Doesn't affect me.
I just don't trust much of anything to do with the scamdemic.

When mRNA vaccines start curing other stuff, will you ignore those, too?

One other thing, if I may. It's good to know what you have as you "tough it out". Recently, two people I know were "toughing it out" for quite a while. Turned out they both had cancer, and now it's advanced. Funny thing is that neither remotely considered that as an option. One had mild balance issues, and the other just felt weak. Now they"re in for some real treatment. Shame it came to this.

No, but it has reduced spread and symptom severity.

How many shots and boosters did you get?
How many shots and boosters did you get?
Two, total.
Worked great then, eh?
I thought Biden said if you were vaccinated, you wouldn't get it?
:devilish:
You aren't high risk, so you should be good.

Even if that was said in error, and all politicians say retractable stuff from time to time, the reality is that it reduced occurrence and severity. Pretty basic. If you want to hang your argument on a statement like that, you don't have a clue.

I'm still waiting for the "winter of death".
I'm high risk...overweight, heavy smoker, etc, etc, etc.
No vaccine, no boosters.
Mingled with everyone like covid never existed.

I have a clue about one thing.
The population was hoodwinked...big time.
Intentionally.
