Several people in my family have gotten in including my 85 yr old, struggling grandfather. Fortunately, they all had minor cold symptoms if any at all and no lasting side effects. I’m hoping it might mean the same for me, but not going to take the chance.
My wife and I narrowly missed it because people close to her were in LifeCare Ctr in Kirkland
So we followed friends that did get it and recovered or NOT.
William: recovered and doing fine
His daughter and grand-daughter: fully recovered, and now well
Margaret: Hospitalized, and home now, but still has weakness
*2 friends that work in healthcare: mild symptoms, doing fine now
Because I was recently exposed by clueless friends, I ordered the test from K.C health and SCAN. Test was free, delivered to my door and results the next day: Negative!!
Had it 2 months ago. The cold was worse than covid. Literally nothing changed.
SO and I both got it a few weeks ago. Our symptoms only lasted 2-3 weeks, but I still have some lung pain.
I got COVID in late March, when it was outbreaking in my city. I’m pretty young (in my 20s) and it hit me hard. I never had a fever, but I did have chills, shakes, cough, sore throat, and trouble breathing. It was bad enough that I went to the ER and got an inhaler; I’ve never had lung issues in my life. There were a few times when I felt like I was dying. Fortunately, my symptoms completely cleared up after 2 weeks.
As for how it’s effected my life, I’m a little less careful, since I’m pretty sure I’m immune (I spent a few hours in a car with someone who tested positive the following day, but I tested negative afterwards). I’m more willing to do things like visit my grandparents, though I normally isolate for a week before hand, just in case. And I’m a little more willing to go to restaurants, for the same reason.
