Do you currently have Covid? Did you have Covid and recovered or died? Tell us what you did.

I had Covid but then I died just like the news said I would.

I sat on my ass for 3 days and popped some vicodins. I thought I had the flu and that it was just as bad as when I had the swine flu. Except I had no sinus issues (congestion, drainage, sneezing that sort of thing) whatsoever and lost my sense of smell which had never happened before. Sore throat was odd too I never get those but the virus replicates there so it makes sense.

This was 2nd week of Jan 2020 before covid was a thing. I shared a small office with 2 guys who went back home to wuhan over the holidays.

I fly all over the place and hang out a house parties where people wind up with the coof and I can't seem to catch it again.

10 days later I was fine. Back to work on the 6th but would have went earlier but there was a weekend. I gave it to my manager.

Fever for a week, weakness, no appetite, then another week felt tired. Nothing else. I am 50.

In early 2020 I had the worst flu I had ever had in my life. I was deathly sick for three weeks. Worse yet, my usual comfort soup remedies had no taste whatsoever. I ended up having to use a nebulizer with albuterol almost daily just to feel like I could catch a breath. Unfortunately, I had to keep working the entire three weeks, only taking one actual day off. It was one of the few times in my life I thought I was just going to die from how bad it felt. It really felt that I just couldn't get enough oxygen.

Ultimately, it was COVID. However, I don't believe it was the potency of the virus that kicked my ass so hard. Rather, I was living pretty poorly at the time. On the lead up to getting infected, I had been losing my will to take care of myself properly. Eating junk, drinking energy drinks, not sleeping properly, not exercising. Things I had stood for my whole life I just slipped out of like a fool. Ironically, I did go from being a pack a day smoker to quitting cold turkey right before I got sick, I heard nicotine helps fight it off. The flu would have pushed my stuff in too, I'm sure.

It was a wake up call to be certain. Some long haul symptoms were blessing in disguise for me. Carby and sugary foods tasted like metal or sanitizer for a few months afterwards, which I didn't mind at all. I did end up with some seemingly permanent chest pains, exacerbated whenever I consumed products with bad oils (soybean, canola etc). The chest pain actually started to clear up a bit when I took some Ivermectin last week, but I can't be sure of the correlation or permanence of that recovery yet. I've been back on track with my health, actually weighing less now than I did as a teenager, and being far stronger now too. Permanent ketosis is my spirit animal.

I was mildly reinfected twice afterwards, but those were just immune checks than anything serious. I started to feel sick today, but I slammed it with the I-MASK+ protocol. We'll see how I feel in the next few days. I'm not too worried.

I do have this sneaking suspicion that despite defeating the COVID, it shredded a few more years off of my already shortened lifespan. I intend to make the rest of my life worth it though. Nice try CCP.

Tl;dr im ded leave me alone biden

I had those two terrible, near killer flus several years ago, but that was before coof, and no coof that I am aware of. The chest flu years ago was like a pain amplifier, everything hurt, even just taking off clothes and putting them back on again. There was an 'acute strangulation' phase that lasted for a few hours before relenting. That's where ivermectin might have helped.

Since those incidents, mostly just non serious colds lasting days to over a week. However, I have noticed since this 'epidemic' began, more chronic coughing and little dribbly stuff that hangs and doesn't easily go away. I don't know what causes all that or if it's related, it just seemed to start around the same time. I have a hunch more than one thing was released, but they like to hang on to Covid as the brand name fear totem.

Covid in Dec 2020. Headaches, chills, mild fever, fatigue moderately bad for 48 hours. On the third day, I felt a lot better but still mentally out of it a bit and cough and total loss of taste and smell. I did a light workout on day 7. Cough and phlegm continued for a couple weeks. Taste and smell very gradually recovered over time to where I felt I was restored after a month of losing it. My wife and kids got it from me, but had it even easier than I did.

I've been healthier than ever for at least the last year and a half.

My wife and I got Covey.

Wife: lost her taste and smell for about a month. She took 1 HCQ tablet. About 2 weeks into her no taste, no smell, she tested negative.
Me: I came home and started to feel like shit. Headache, extreme fatigue. Bones/joints hurt. I took 1 HCQ tablet. The next morning I felt as if nothing ever happened.

Both the wife and I have been on a preventative protocol for the past 12 - 14 months. We got the Covey about 4 - 5 months ago.

I am 55 and she is 50.

I "guess" I had it January this year. Tested negative, but we all know those aren't accurate. 2 people tested positive that were at my house for NYE right when my symptoms onset two days later. Their kid eventually got it too. So I'm convinced I had a false negative PCR test.

I had literally every symptom the CDC lists, besides the loss of smell. So it may have been traditional flu, I just don't know. I was down for 6 days. WineHorror mentions headaches, I never get them but that was one hard part to deal with. Fatigue, aches, shitting liquid, coughing, sinus, sore throat, etc. It was rough, but not enough to even visit the doctor. I just rested and hydrated.

The one guy at the NYE party still hasn't regained sense of smell 9 months later that tested positive. So that's a bit scary long term issue for some.

I think it's allergies now, but I'm feeling a bit off with runny nose, light cough and feeling tired. Tree pollen and mold are super high right now where I'm at, so probably allergies even though mine are minor enough to not medicate, so who knows.

Biggest thing, which our government doesn't promote, is a healthy lifestyle. Don't be fat. Move. Doesn't have to be running, just walk. Do some low weight high rep workouts every other day. I finally got down to 226 this morning from February when I was 250 (broke heel). Looking to hit 215 by the end of October. I'm 6'3", so the weight seems high, but there's just more there. Basically I don't look fat if you met me. Goal weight is 200-205 and stay there until I get old and shrivel up.

Besides substances or cancer, weight is almost everyone's biggest issue health wise. And Covid seems to like the fatties or at least those that die.

Me and about everyone in my orbit, all got a two week long flu, around late January to early Febuary 2020. Of course, they were saying the only reported case was in Washington State at the time. But we all know it was Covid as none of the people I knew that got it around the time we all got the flu, has gotten as much as a cough since then.

My oldest daughter as well as friend of mine took that antibody test, and came back negative. But by time they took the test it was about 10 months later.
I suspect we have the antibodies for it, but they aren't as abundant as you would find if you tested someone who just came out of a battle with it.
That's assuming that the test for the antibodies aren't as big of a load of bollocks, as all of the Covid preventative measures and the RNA PCB bullshit tests are.
