    I and my family have already had it. Family has zero side affects so far.
    I have shortness of breath but I smoked cigarettes for 25 years. I haven’t smoked in almost 7 but I think it still affected me. No other reason for me to have shortness as I still wear a toolbelt every day

    I had it two weeks ago. Lasted 2-3 weeks. Days 7-10 were scary. Lungs took a real beating. I tested negative 10 days ago. Gonna try the gym again this week.

  3. Cobraboy Says:

    What medications were prescribed?

  4. SB Says:

    None for me. We had it back in Dec. Didn’t know it was a ‘thing’ then.
    Only the AB tests told us we already had it.

    Hopefully he won’t have to worry about contracting it again before the season and playoffs are over.

    Hoax, right guys? :eyeroll:

    There is now documented evidence that people who had COVID at one time can get it again. If you want a calculated way of figuring out your COVID risk by group size you can look at this site:

    I got covid-19 2 months ago. I’m still feeling the effects of it. Doctors said it’s probably a 6 month total time for a full recovery. I can’t walk for more than 10 minutes without being exhausted, still have occasional coughing fits, and have one or two days per week where I sleep most of the day. I was healthy before catching it, running everyday and power lifting 3 times per week. It affects everyone differently, but it’s like playing Russian roulette with what symptoms you get and their severity.

    Thanks for sharing your story ArmchairGM. I’m really sorry to hear that you and SB dealt with it. Your story is a reminder that this thing is very real and it does not discriminate based on age, status, wealth, political preference, ect…

    I was prescribed Prednisone and Doxycycline.

    I was also prescribed a cabinet full of OTC meds and supplements.

    The Prednisone is what kept me alive.

  10. Cannon Says:

    To follow up on what Armchair said, it affects everyone differently.

    My wife and sister in law caught. Both had completely different symptoms than me.

    I actually got Covid induced Conjunctivitis for 2-3 days. Not the crusty weepy stuff… just blood red eyes for a few days. Was bizarre.

    What’s really strange is brushing your teeth and not tasting the toothpaste.

    Let’s get an article about JPP breaking his neck in a car crash, then have everyone who has been injured in a car crash or lost someone to a car crash comment about how dangerous cars are….

    Or you could just go take a drive…..

    I appreciate the real life comments from the posters.

    No reason to hide from how things personally affected you because of the negativity from Mike.

    To all thanks for sharing!

    I’m glad you like Vita are given a chance to experience some Bucs football this year.

    Go Bucs!!!

  15. SB Says:

    Thanks to you guys that spoke from the heart.
    I appreciate it.

    Came thru our house in mid Feb – two days of complete exhaustion, couldn’t get our of bed at all – tired I have never experienced before and flu like symptoms – the wife 3 days, exact same symptoms – the grandson was first, then our daughter, then us

    Only fitting in the life of a Bucs fan, we get Brady and Gronk, have a legit chance at the SB for first time in over a decade……….maybe after the election amazingly it’s safe to go outside in groups again

  17. Mike Says:

    I will, to the Bucs game!

    Three of four in our family had it. I probably had it the worst. Felt hungover and had a two day headache, I don’t ever get either, slept an entire day off and on and a slight sniffle. I was completely clear in about 2.5 days. It wasn’t a big deal for any of us. Didn’t know we had it until we were better.
