Covid-19

Hello everyone, hope everyone had a great time with their loved ones. 

I have been feeling super sick, I think it might be covid. I have a test in a few days. 

I have been in so much pain but been putting off going to the E.R because I don't want to die alone on a ventilator. 

The fear of leaving my kids behind has been debilitating.

I'm trying to see if anyone here has had covid and recovered? 

I'm 28 had a H.A last year 3 stents HBP and diabetes, all the comobridities that are killing people left and right.

    I had three stents in 2016 and COVID in November and in to December. I am 76 and it scared me to death. My case was serious enough to put me to bed for three weeks. I didn't run a temperature, but had a variety of sinus and respiratory issues. Most important thing is to get tested... a few days is too far away because you need to quarantine right now until you get the results. Don't expose other people needlessly! It came to me at the worst time in my illness that I had to choose what to do so I set paramaters for how bad I could feel without going to the hospital. I never got over those limits. I was lucky. I must say I have had bad after-symptoms and must impress on you how important it is for you to do this right. Please get help from your doctor! Best wishes, Carol

    We are sorry to hear you are not feeling well and this must be very stressful for you and your family. 

    We understand that this is a scary time but hospitals are a safe place and we encourage you to go to the ER for an evaluation. 

    The American Heart Association has more resources as part of it's Don't Die of Doubt campaign, which you can see here:

    Please take care of yourself and let us know how you are doing. 

    Best,

    Please get tested and go to the ER if the symptoms worsen.  Most don't die from covid and you are still quite young.  I've been to the hospital twice since Feb and I'd say all of them are taking precautions to keep everyone as safe as possible.
