Sun Oct 4, 2020, 09:37 PM

Speaking from my own covid-19 illness in March..

I showed symptoms for 3 full weeks. I fully quarantined for 6 weeks.

It took 3 full weeks to clear my symptoms.

My symptoms..

Restricted breathing. Difficulty drawing in a full breath.

Dry cough.

Body chills.

My beloved sister and niece delivered groceries to my doorstep for a month to my doorstep through a tearfilled window for a month+.

My point..

Trump, the SUPERINFECTOR will remain contagious for a full 30 days beyond his diagnosis, is already implying he will once again hit the campaign trail ready to campaign..

once again he will spread covid to more and more people, with out giving a shit.

Orange super-spreader will callously, carelessly spread this virus in careless fashion.

Trump is a patient-zero-type super spreader.

What else needs to be said?

27. I was one saying Friday that I don't wish anyone to get this disease

and certainly not to die. Even him. But this stunt today has changed my mind. He needs to go away to prevent more death and mayhem.

28. precisely, he keeps causing death

Itís not even emotional response, itís logical to me. I donít wish him death as it may accomplish the opposite, I want him disabled, incapacitated so no more harm is done by his actions. That means serious covid complications and multiple organ failure needed to spend the rest of his life in a nursing home.

11. The feeling of a boa constrictor wrapping around his chest...

if he is showing the same symptoms as me, he's feeling the same.

These symptoms are carried among the ill among their first days of being symptomatic.

From there on, Trump or any can go from minor symptoms to full on death.

It depends on health from the start. Trump was an obese junk-food-oholic to start with.

Over-weight people start their covid diagnosis with a foot in the grave.

Ask any doctor, they'll say the same.

Just sayin..

9. I have always marveled at how asthma

sufferers do it. They have no choice, I get that, but not being able to breathe is terrifying. My biggest fear is death by drowning for that reason.

So sorry you went through this

16. Moonscape, thank you for the well wishes..

I will not be beaten by Trump or his pandemic.

I'm too damn strong for that shit!! But, strong messages of support from great DU'ers like YOU help make it easier!!!

Thank you for the encouragement. I have taken up breathing/yoga classes to recuperate/rehab my natural breathing function.

I'll get there, I'll live but damn if this hasn't been a wrench in the spokes of my life...

I never thought that something like this would come along and smack my life down.

Having said that, I will fight on and breath well again soon.

31. Thanks, I'm doing much better now months after clearing the infection.

My breathing is about 90% and I think it will eventually get back to near normal. Deep breathes are still a bit restricted but I do daily deep breathing exercises. Getting there!!

Thanks for the well wishes.

to recover. He would hesitate to put his supporters through something like that.

14. Trump gets tested.

Trump feels crook.

Trump goes to Walter Reed.

Couple days later, Trump fit to go home.


Really?

Not buying that for a minute! Seeing Boris J, the UK prime minister, took a week getting worse, and not getting better for a week after that. And all the stories from survivors, taking weeks if not months, and being left with less severe long term problems.

The TIME LINE on the Trump story does not compute!

More likely, a false positive on his test. Did they do any follow up tests at Walter Reed? If not, why not? If they did, have we heard about any of those test results?

The story has always been that he was going to Walter Reed for a few days . . . not, that he might be there for as long as it takes, maybe weeks or months.

15. Treatments have improved since March, but I'm still skeptical of his claims.

Still the death rate has gone down and some are spending less time in hospitals.

That said, knowing Trump he will overdo it when he gets out, likely wind up back in the hospital and meanwhile violate health rules and spread the virus far and wide.

The well wishes have outstripped my ability to say Thanks to all.

I am fine. I've recovered mostly.

Covid is a bastard. But we canget through it. I dont know how or who recovers. But most do. Problem is some don't and we don't know why as of yet.

Wear your masks!!!!!!

Folks got over the flu of 1918 with the help of masks.

That stuff works.

22. Had i gotten any worse, I would've needed hospitalization..

The restricted breathing and lung pain were real, but I talked daily with family over the phone.

My mother is a nurse(RN). We talked daily. She analyzed me like a true pro. She put her motherhood aside and worked the situation.

I'm damn lucky to have her in my corner. She was an amazing professional with rock solid constitution.

She treated me as a patient first, rather than a son, and the tactic worked magic. She helped me maintain and keep a good attitude to get back to good health.

You're right by saying thanks to my family with their support. They were crucial.

Thank for adding to the debate!!

Stay safe and healthy.

25. How fortunate to have a mother nurse helping you

thru the ordeal. You're right about masks and the 1918 flu, they absolutely help.

Mom told us what she heard from her parents about the Spanish flu, a monster 1918-1920.

Stay well and healthy!

41. Yes, Mom was solid gold throughout my quarantine.

I spoke with my physician every couple of days through my illness and told her that mom was a recently retired RN and would call me daily to assess the situation and keep my spirits high. My doc told me that I was very fortunate to have a RN for a mother and felt much more at ease with me staying quarantined in home rather than going to the hospital. This was in the early days of the pandemic and physicians were still trying to get a grasp on the disease. They were learning the unknown. My doc was solid gold as well.

Thanks for the well wishes.

Stay safe and healthy!!
