My tongue is starting to feel dry and gluey, I probably have it, that's great so far. I'm not staying in if I recover. I'll either be dead or a free man in 2 weeks.

Free to do what? Hang out at the local grocery store?

So be wary that not everything is Coronavirus

One of my team members I reported was very sick and finally got her results back at the hospital. She had trouble breathing, dizzy, headaches and body aches

She tested negative for Coronavirus. She has had a serious allergic reaction to a high blood pressure medication she was prescribed

So don't assume and please don't self-diagnose

My overall goal is not to be sick enough with anything to have to need to go to a hospital, not just coronavirus. *

A really overly busy hospital is probably not the safest place for being sick right now. More time not being seen, probably more errors.

Sucks she had to go to the hospital, and possibly pick it up by finding out she doesn't have it.

She was pretty bad. She stood home three days before finally going

Her high blood pressure was over 200 I think.

Exactly. Now that everyone is stuck at home, itís a great time to focus on overall health. Eat real nutritious food, get some exercise even if itís just push-ups and walking, soak up some sunshine/natural vitamin D, get a solid 8 hours of sleep every night. Thereís no better better recipe for a strong immune system IMO. The last thing you want to do right now is go to a medical facility for any reason .
Itís all about making that GTA

Seems I'm either not sick with COVID or I'm asymptomatic for now. I'd rather have been sick, so I could get through it and not worry about getting sick or infecting others. Exhausting resources feeling stagnant, terrible. 2020 was supposed to be a breakthrough, not a breakout.

Very soon, if not already, you'll be able to get a simple blood test to determine if you had it (positive for antibodies) or not.

So correct me if I am wrong

If positive and asymptomatic then I have been exposed and have developed immunities. I can go anywhere

If negative then either:

A) I don't have it but could still contract it and get sick/die so still need to quarantine

B) I do have it but within the last 14 days and have not yet developed anti-bodies. I may still get sick and still need to quarantine

Is that pretty much a correct assessment?
