as far as i know stet and i have it. anyone else?

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 31 March 2020 11:47 (one year ago) link

Saturday 28 March
During the day i started feeling that classic tingly 'emergency' feeling that accompanies pretty much any fever. i had a scheduled aperatif/hangout at 7:15 with my wife's family, about a dozen of them shouting over the top of each other for an hour. my wife also said she didn't feel good, so we PRETENDED to drink by pouring some kombucha into wine glasses. it wasn't so bad.

by the time i was ready for bed i had a proper fever - 38.3C (101F). that night was terrible. classic delirium dreams. i was one of many little bundles or hashmarks that needed to be grouped and lined up inside a large pen somewhere in westminster. it was my job to do the grouping and lining up, and i was also one of the hashmarks. i tried every combination. it never was right. i woke up maybe 4 times and always returned to this same anxiety dream. my body ached. it was hard to get back to sleep.

Sunday 29 March
toast was bitter. coffee was horrible. i started coughing. not a lot, and it never felt violent, but it was there. i ached all over. in the afternoon i slept, which was massively helpful. after that i even started to feel okay.

my wife having similar symptoms to me, but milder. little or no fever, and less aches.

i went for a walk (allowed under NHS guidelines) keeping well away from everyone and feeling like the angel of death. as i walked i could smell something. it was persistent. extremely recognisable yet very unusual. i could smell it wherever i went. once i got back home i could still smell it. i finally figured it out. burning hair. since then i haven't smelled it.

another symptom began: little pain flashes at the base of my skull lasting for no more than a second or two. right side, left side, at random. no trouble breathing. but chest feeling tight and a bit... hollowed out sort of. there is some serious shit happening in there. prefer not to know.

whole family watched Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol which was WAY more trash than i had remembered. still kinda fun.

i started to feel even better. by this time i'd started taking paracetemol right up to the max dosage each day (2x 500mg tablets three times a day) and kind of trying to game it so that it would take effect at the ideal time but not put me over my limit. felt better going to bed.

Monday 30 March
night absolutely awful. worst yet. woke up needing to pee and couldn't go back to sleep for maybe 2 hrs because of the aches. finally realising i was being an idiot and should just take some paracetemol. did so, got to sleep in 10 minutes. some untold time later wake up absolutely DRENCHED. hanes beefy T just wet through. changes clothes.

realise there is an eerie resemblance between how i feel in the mornings and how i might feel after an almighty speed bender. metallic taste in mouth, insides feel totally used up and squeezed out, flashes of pain in head. strong urges to pee that result in very little.

actually take a shower and change into real clothes to try to feel more normal. it kind of works! and guess what - it's a homeschool day!

somehow my wife and i manage my kids through a few online classes, set them up with some videogames and lunch, are incredibly irritable towards each other and the kids. after the kids are in bed we have a big talk and apologise to each other.

Tuesday 31 March
new night strategy: keep two paracetemol by the bed and take as soon as i wake up in the middle of the night. IT WORKS. more or less. i basically sleep through. rise at 8:30 feeling like shit but at least i slept.

the first of several grocery drop-offs arrives courtesy of a neighbourhood friend. the lovely Emma B feels significantly worse and i'm about the same. we're basically holding steady. no shortness of breath is what i'm holding onto.

it turns out one of my bosses at work had it right before we were all told to work from home and it took him 15 days to come out of it. he urged me in a text message to completely disconnect from work for at least 3-4 days and get better. that's what i'm doing.

as i'm writing this my kids are playing PS4 and my wife is in bed.

i fully intend for this to be as bad as it gets. i'm not drinking alcohol at all. i'm having like a half a cup of coffee a day (as opposed to my usual 3-4). it tastes nasty now anyway. drinking lots of water. getting to bed around 11pm.

the most amazing part, which i had completely forgotten, goes something like this:

cruise: 'you're an analyst?'

renner: 'that's right'

cruise: 'pen'

renner: 'excuse me?'

cruise, more pettily: 'give me a pen!'

renner gives cruise a ballpoint pen. cruise then starts drawing on his own palm with the pen. as he's drawing, he's talking. cruise: 'if you're such a hot shot analyst, i'm looking for a european male, mid-50s, blue eyes, looks like this' and then cruise HOLDS UP HIS PALM to show him the BALLPOINT SKETCH and renner says...

'well.. it's crude sketch, but it could be...' and pinpoints the exact dude, rattling off the guy's postdoctoral degrees

There is nothing strange about the Sars coronavirus, they said; it certainly evolved from other known viruses.

One leading expert said Professor Wickramasinghe's letter "must be a joke"; another said it is simply ridiculous.'

surely it is the Professor's name that is the joke here?!@@

Wednesday 1 April
Best night yet. I didn’t need my emergency paracetemol.

Two massive naps today. Worryingly, Paul comes down with a 103F fever and sleeps for hours as well.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation on the teevee with the kids. Goodness me what a movie. The opera scene. The ‘water torus’ scene. The car chase in Morocco. Kidnaping the Prime Minister. The final cat-and-mouse shootout / knife fight among the foggy alleyways of Tower Hill. The delicious conclusion. Best MI hands down imo.

Appetite still good (though still no sense of smell) and breathing still fine.

Thursday 2 April
Rocky night. However Paul has woken up in a great mood, and no fever.

Went for a longish walk today with the lovaly Emma B. Made avologmeno for lunch and was then attacked by a headache the ferocity of which I have probably never felt before in my life. It wasn’t all-encompassing like a migraine but it somehow felt worse - it was sudden, implacable, vice-like, a heavy boot holding me down. Utterly defenseless. Slept three hours in the afternoon and the boot was still there when I woke up.

Managed to rouse myself for dinner, read to the kids before bed.

In some ways this is maybe the worst day so far. Just flattened. Currently watching Pitch Perfect, which is exactly my speed. Head still throbbing. I’ve heard that people can really take a nose-dive in the second week and I hope this isn’t the beginning of that.

Thanks everyone.

I've still got my senses of taste and smell, so that's something. Just utterly, utterly exhausted. Bleurgh. So far, my wife and kids are clear so that's good too.

I loved the government guidance: use a separate bathroom; sleep in a separate wing of the house; don't use the same butler. I'm only partially exaggerating.

Feeling much better, finally. Still knackered but the constant headache has passed and coughing/sneezing minimal. One weird corollary: I've never had two weeks off in my working life (nothing more than a couple of days here and there) and I feel like a fraud and that I'm stitching up all my work colleagues who have to pick up the slack. Sure, what goes around comes around and all that but it's a horrible feeling.

Double Chocula (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 20 October 2021 10:03 (one month ago) link

I've been reading back through the thread and it makes for an interesting document.

I wonder if I am marked somehow; if people will pass me in the street and, consciously or otherwise, prickle, shrink or bridle. I want some of the glasses from John Carpenter's They Live, just to see if there is a warp in the play of light around the fallen: the auratic equation, dazzled or dampened; a new sharpness in the penumbral glow... (This way to the new age thread ->)

Vanishing Point (Chinaski), Wednesday, 20 October 2021 11:20 (one month ago) link

Okay, it is confirmed: I'm carrying the Vid within me.

I had a leftover Abbott home test from an earlier scare (good to have on hand, though maybe not super reliable) which tested positive. I was not caught off guard as I was starting to feel pretty crummy. Went down to my HMO (Kaiser) on Saturday and got the real test (drive-up), the results came in this morning.
Pretty sure this is my second infection, I had something in March 2020 with the exact same symptoms, right as the Bay Area was becoming an epicenter (while I was riding public transport daily, and nobody had started wearing masks).

I've had/am having cough, chills, congestion, and a mild 'fever' which never got above 100.8*. I also have the weird sunburn feeling across my back and shoulders that some folks have reported. I don't have that great a sense of smell anyway, but I can smell fresh coffee, whisky, and not much else.

Fortunately, I'm pretty well stocked with groceries, but I wish I had bought more TP on my last trip out. My GF and friends have offered to drop stuff by, I'll be okay... just already bored stiff, I usually like to go for a long walk after work.

Oh, and I had a single dose J&J in April.. was starting to shop around for a booster, I guess I waited too long.

got the rona.

started feeling bad Thursday last week, bed ridden with flu-like shit Saturday (Saturday was the apex, high fever, delirium etc.) to Monday. Tuesday I felt well enough to be out of bed, pondered getting tested but didn't really want to leave the apartment. then all of a sudden I realized I couldn't smell at all despite not being congested, for the first time in days. went and got tested, tested positive.

weird thing is that for weeks before this I had felt rundown and had intermittent coughing fits. I didn't get tested because my wife gave me that illness and tested negative. but it feels like this was a continuation of the same illness.

public health tells me I can go back to normal activities on Monday.

wife now has it, not quite as bad as I did but is pretty sick. I also think my cat has it, he has a case of the sneezes. but seems ok otherwise

I spent my birthday alone at home in early November with this shit... my smell & taste have mostly returned (somewhat dulled), but I had a weird hacking coughing fit the other night. Most mornings I'll cough a bit, and it's been over a month; I tested positive right before halloween.

Welp, I had managed to keep myself and my family Corona-free since last March, up until this week. Started getting chills and muscle aches on Monday, got tested and result came back positive. No coughing/breathing issues, just lots of sneezing and nose blowing. Tuesday and Wednesday were the worst, but today's almost back to normal, except the complete lack of smell and taste is crazy-making.

I'm isolating in our downstairs family room to try to keep my wife and kid from getting it. So far, so good. Thank goodness for Criterion channel!

I wasn't boostered yet but being in Canada I didn't get my second vaccination until late July so I'm not even at 6 months yet. probably be able to get one next month. think actually having the thing and then getting a booster will mean I'll be antibodied up the ying yang.
