Sunday night it hit me like a ton of bricks. Iím fully vaccinated and take precautions and I still got it. Iíve had pneumonia twice and never felt this close to death as Iíve felt the last 5 days. Fever up to 104, every part of my body hurts and I mean hurts, no energy and no desire to eat. Just a walk to the bathroom takes everything out of me. I do thank god it didnít go into my lungs, yes I have a minor cough but no breathing issues. The first night when it came on my lungs burned so bad I was afraid to breath but by morning the burn went away. The only thing I can think of on how I got it was off of someoneís money that came through the coffee shop. I am starting to feel somewhat better, not like death anymore lol, I just considered myself lucky I didnít get it any worse.
if you kick me when I'm down you better pray I don't get up.

Scares me. Wife and I are both fully vaccinated and got the flu shots. We're still nervous about things.
Good luck. Hope recovery is quick and complete.
If I had known I would live to be this old, I would've drunk better whiskey.

Thanks everyone, getting there slowly but Iím sure itíll take a few more days to feel it. I went to med express and had a 3 1/2 hour wait in my car before I could be seen. Then went to local ER and had 33 people in front of me. At the time I had a 104 fever so I said screw it and went home. I was hoping to be given the new pill but never happened. I just took DayQuil and NyQuil to keep the fever down, drank plenty of nasty pedialyte to keep hydrated. The worst thing about this is once u got it you feel like you are at a leprosy colony. No one comes anywhere near you. Drop supplies off in porch and let them leave before you open up the door. 😂😂
if you kick me when I'm down you better pray I don't get up.

Several in the local area have also described the leper colony scenario. I was dropping off veggies on the neighbor's garage pad and leaving. Just felt strange.  :confused:

Gee coffee,curious if you have other underlying health issues?

Back in 2018 I was laid up for 10 days laying in isolation,everthing you discribed I had including 70% of my lungs were full of fluid,5 doctors scratching they're heads,fever lost massive amount of weight as my smelling senses were off lived on popsicles for 10days while in the ICU.,never hungry ...blood transfusions,oxygen hookup,one doc said possible bronchitus virus....today my doc told me I had covid only they didn't know what covid was in 2018,he said covid has be around since 2015,most often diagnosed as the flu... who know's,now we have a more lethal variant coming called the south african variant,W.H.O. claims our current vaccines won't work against it,hell our current vaccines don't work against covid-19 now,sure seems like "ring-around -the rosey".

glad your on the mend coffee,hang in there.

Sounds like you had covid 18 snow. In some instances it was worse than covid19.

Snow, luckily the only thing I have is a touch of high blood pressure and I am a smoker. Whatís weird is I never lost my taste and my sense of smell is on over drive. Today woke up felling 100% better. But there are a few weird feelings, fever is gone but my body is burning up, I can feel my body working fighting off the virus, hard to describe but I can tell something is going on inside. I started sneezing this morning and havenít stopped all day, starting to pizz me off. I want to go but I know I have to wait til at least Sunday to test again.
if you kick me when I'm down you better pray I don't get up.
