    Maybe take your badass American muscle car out for a cruise if you are up for it. I know going for a drive usually always helps make me feel better. Hope you start feeling a little better each day.
    I've done that a few times since I got sick and it really helps. But it doesn't help when it rains etc. I don't take it out on those days. It's a garage queen and it's not a daily driver.

    I missed a little over 3 weeks at work and lost 20 pounds in 10’days. Didn’t think I was going to make it for a while. Finally back to near normal except my smell. I smell cigarettes all the time for some reason.It is almost nauseating. Hope that goes away. Mine started at the end of August.

    I smell something like that 2. It's so strange I think it's like my face oil so I wash my face but still smell that smell. I got my Sense of smell and taste back. I also lost weight. I lost 17 lbs.

    I feel little better today but I don't want to speak out of terms. I feel good one day and then like hell the next. It's so frustrating.

    Took me 22 days before I actually felt better.

    Then about 4 months of what felt like really bad allergies and a persistent cough that would wake me up at night. July/August 2020, when the heat finally hit in the summer, is when I started being able to breath again without it being labored.

    It'll be 2 years since I came down with it on January 12th and I still have lingering effects. Breathing troubles during allergy seasons, congestion from mask usage, blood pressure problems, shortness of breath at times, all of which I didn't have prior to SARS-Cov-2. Yeah, getting older matters too but this wasn't gradual. It was like a switch got flicked 2 years ago and it hasn't been turned off yet.
    I'm so sorry to hear that. This thing sucks so bad and it effects everyone differently. I'm going on 4 weeks now and I'm not out of the woods.

    I got it in January of 2020 before anyone knew what it was. It knocked me down hard for 10 days. A few times I woke up struggling to breathe and spent almost an hour in the bathroom coughing up chest congestion. The doctors at the company I work for said I should have been in the hospital. I never went because I thought it was just a bad flu. But after I started feeling better, I felt a sinus infection coming on. So I went to my doc because I had to travel soon. Told him what was going on and he rapid tested me for flu. I came back positive for flu b so he took blood for lab work.

    He called me while I was traveling and told me tests came back, no influenza antibodies at all and didn't know what I had. Fast forward to like May/June and he was going through patient records from October to February on everyone he saw that came in with flu like symptoms and was making reports on them to the appropriate resources. He told me he estimated that 70 to 80 percent of his "late flu" patients were actually SARS-CoV-2 but it wasn't verifiable outside of symptomatic analysis because nobody was bothering with antigen tests at the time.

    It was messed up, dude and pretty scary. I know what you're going through and the false hope of good one day, like schitt the next is exhausting.

    My doc told me to take Robitussin DM, the night time stuff, every 6 hours despite what the label said and keep the congestion out of your lungs. That's what helped me the most. I probably drank 2 gallons of the stuff over the course of 4 months but it helped a ton with sleep quality and coughing.

    As a former medical researcher....Antigen test or it didn't happen (Thank Dr. Kary Mullis). Extra Vit C, D3, selenium, and Zinc with quercitin if it did happen. A multitude of published data on these, specific to their anti-viral properties. (Thanks Pub Med)

    @ Dec '19, I recognized flu-like symptoms and started double-dosing said vitamins and minerals. What usually took only a day or so to knock out fever and chills, took 3-4 days.

    Fast forward to now, knowing this chimeravirus (Thank Fauci and Peter Daszak because the Bat Lady did) targets the lining of the airways, I've added a daily ozone generator to the household.

    I caught it (pretty sure anyways) at a Boxing Day party (Dec 26, 2019). Rich friends of my girlfriend's in NY state in a smallish house packed to the gills with well to do travelers of the world. Lots of artist types. I have no idea if anyone had just come back from China but anything is possible. I won't mention how I treated it this time, so the thread doesn't get shut down again. I was sick for 3 weeks with the strangest respiratory infection I had ever felt. I've had worse. Pneumonia was worse, but this was weird and I did lose ability to enjoy food as tastes and smells were all outa wack.

    Geez dude, again so sorry you had to deal with all that. This thing sucks so bad for so many people.
    I picked up Nyquil and DayQuil in the beginning and took them everyday and night. I beat the first round in 3 -4 days. But these new symptoms are way worse. I have my good days and bad and yes totally annoying and really stressful. My days are getting better but as soon as I say that, I fear tomorrow will be a ruff day. Sucks so bad I dream of the day I'm back to being me.

    I didn't get zinc or Selenium but they are apart of my Multi Organic Vitamin. I get Garden of Life MY KIND. It seems like a pretty good Multi.
    I also put in D3 and Vitamin C. Once a day small doses.

    What does the Ozone generator do? What's the benefits? I got a Air purifier , Blu Air or something like that. It was one that filters out virus and just about everything bad in the air in your home. It's a larger model so it does a lot of square footage. It's super quite as well.

    I had about the same time as John, back in early January of 2020, before we knew what covid was. I had just left the hospital after major surgery of which one of my surgeons just came back from South Korea. He saw everyone wearing masks then and didn't really understand why.

    I felt like I was going to die, loss of taste, no appetite, flu like symptoms, weak...almost to the point the wife wanted to take me back to the hospital, but I refused to go. In my opinion, that first wave was the strongest version of covid, every variant after was weaker to some degree. Looking back, I am surprised I made it, with no real immune system left from just getting out of the hospital and they had me on all sorts of meds not exactly helping immune response too.

    My regiment these days, looks like this....100 mg Curcumin, 100-200 mg ubiquinol, 300 mg magnesium, because most everyone is deficient of it. Also 5,000 iu of D3 with MK7, and a product that has a mix of B6 and B12 with some Omegas and resveratrol, carnitine. Just started experimenting with some Colostrum, to help with the gut and immune response since a good chunk of your immune response originates in the gut. If your not allergic to dairy, and if you have some gut issues, ulcers, leaky gut problems, nothing better than Colostrum. It's making my gut feel 30 years younger, and I had some gut issues.

    Try things, see what works for you. Anything that will give a boost to your immune system is a positive in this covid world....especially if your older.

    Thanks for sharing Tony , I want to really learn about these things. I setup an appointment with a Nutritionist so I can further my knowledge and learn how to balance out my life. I'm sick of the American diet and trying to figure out how to eat properly, to many variables so I need to tailor them to my needs.

    If you want to just try it, they have samples for I believe 7 or 8 bucks delivered. Thats how I started, just to make sure how my body reacted to it, or whether or not it would have reactions to the other stuff I take.

    Thanks for the info Tony, I have never heard of it, I have been taking D3 and Vitamin C everyday for over a year now, I am not sure if I have ever had Covid or not, before Covid was even a thing there was a time I didn’t feel the greatest, headache, and chills kinda like flu symptoms but different, and really bad bathroom issues, I probably should have went to the doctor but it didn’t feel life threatening, and all in all mild compared to what came and hit so many.

    The last three months has actually been the worst for us at work, more people have come down with it more than when this started. I have been fortunate to not be one of them..

    How are you today, do you still have lingering issues after all this time??

    Colostrum is one of the ways that the mother mammal, including humans of course, imparts immunity to the child. I took it for a while just to try it. I did not notice anything but I wouldn't have had a problem continuing to take it just on faith because the science is very real. I'm on so many supplements though I can't stick with them all because of $$$.

    Good for you. Balance is the key and portion control. Nobody wants to give up their favorite foods, ya just can't binge eat like you did in your 20's and 30's on junk food and fast food. Takes a little trial and error but you'll get there, and be happier you took that journey. Best of luck to you, stay healthy.

    Hope all goes well for you. On the bright side, in 1-2 weeks (typically) you’ll have the most durable immunity to Covid you can get.

    One of them went in to work knowingly I'll so that he would not lose his holiday pay. Putting everyone else at risk is not being very thoughtful.
