My area isn't a hot zone by any means, we only have 14 verified cases of Covid 19, and I still got sick. I'm #15. And, about 6 of the people to get it in my town have died so far.


Yikes hope you recover ok

Me too. I've never been this sick before, and it really sucks.

May I ask, do you live in a hot zone? Originally my locale was thought to be one though fortunately that turned out not to be the case.

NYC.

Understandable. I’m not too far from NYC, just over the border in PA. Thankfully my direct area isn’t bad though I constantly see NJ and NY license plates all around me.

I've been sick about a month and a half so far. It's stayed in my system for a really long time, and I have good days and bad days. They won't let me go to the hospital unless I spike a fever of 110 or more. My highest fever was 104.6, three weeks ago. So, I'm hoping to be better soon.

I thought anything above 102F is "get to a hospital ASAP". 110F is unheard of to me.

Our hospital lacks the capacity to treat everybody with the virus. And, they don't really want poor people there with no health insurance. Is what I'm taking away from it. They told me that there was nothing that they could do for me, and I had to either be suffocating to death, dying, or have a temperature of 110 or more for them to let me have a respirator and a hospital bed.

Wow, this is heavy. Please stay strong, Zantra. I'll be praying for you.

Well you're dead at that point if you have a fever that high so it sounds like they're basically telling you to frig off.

^Panic level is 104 here... but yea, if I hit 104 I know how unable to do shit I am... and how miserable it is. Couldn't imagine 110.

Yeah, it's been a super rough time, and I was in pretty good physical shape before this started, now I feel like I'm 100 years old. I can barely move without feeling exhausted, and I have weird bruises all over my body.
