Caronavirus surviving statistics
Hello I am interested in the fact that just like me there so many Americans with Hbp. If you **** positive can you survive the treatment. I know about how to prevent youraelf from being at risk but once you have systems can you survive. Just a General question.

I can only offer my opinion based on my own experiences with HBP and the virus: I believe most people can survive...and looking at the worldwide numbers, that rings true.
For me, the coronavirus pressure-tested my lungs, heart, kidneys. It probably affected hormone production, as well, as it took a few weeks to get back to a decent night's sleep. I will state that if I didn't have my lisinopril, blood pressure monitor, space heater, the smarts to perform deep breathing exercises when I needed....and a good friend to talk to....I would not be here today. You have to listen to what your body is telling you with its sensations and react appropriately. Head pressure: check your BP and have your BP meds ready. Heavy lungs/heavy breathing-wheezing: mucus build up - ease of fluid intake a little and have some Mucinex DM handy. You have to be mentally and physically prepared to yo-yoing between feeling good and feeling like **** -- for days or weeks. You have to be prepared for skyrocketing blood pressure (over 200 SYS, 130 DIA for me).
Although I tested negative for the coronavirus weeks ago, I am in my own personal therapy now as I still have mucus build up. I monitor my fluid intake, work up a sweat exercising and take Mucinex DM to keep things in check. A benefit of beating the virus is my BP is at or slight below normal almost all the time. Physically, I am good -- still a work in progress, but good compared to the hell I went through. The "new" body normal I am calling this. Mentally, though, I still haven't grasped the feat I just completed. With no health insurance and scrappy work, I survived when others didn't....in hospitals even! Part of me is happy I am here to tell the tale, another part of me is guilty.
So, can you survive the coronavirus with HBP: yes.

@Bringitdown, Thank you sharing your success, and sure is reassuring to many. Never be guilty to survive, its what we all owe ourselves, as long as its not at someone's expense.
