Stay quarantined for at least 30 days, ASSHOLE. [View all]

It's time for the people of the U.S. to demand Trump go into full quarantine for at least 30 days.

As I've written in numerous threads here on DU, I had covid back in March. It took 3 full weeks to clear my symptoms. I fully quarantined at home for 6 full weeks. 3 full weeks after my symptoms ended. My symptoms ended Apr 9th. I ended my quarantine about May 4th.

Yes, the quarantine was maddening at times but my family called me daily and kept my spirits high. I only opened my front door to grab the grocery bags delivered by my beloved sister and niece.(on edit: I waited until they left to open the door..)

There is no fucking way that Trump can start doing anything public for 30 days. He will likely be infectious until then. More like 6 weeks just to be safe.

As I've stated in other threads, my symptoms were moderate. Had they gotten any worse, I would've required hospitalization. I chatted every few days with my physician. She was the best. She closely monitored the situation and her guidance was solid gold.

My mother is a recently retired registered nurse. She was also solid gold. I was very lucky to have her call me daily to check up on me and give advice. Due to mom's professional, iron-like constitution, she never shed a tear during our daily chats, even on the worst days when I had difficulty with speaking, I simply couldn't get the air out of my lungs. Mom never teared up. Although, I'm guessing she broke down after getting off the phone with me.. I could talk all day about the importance of family through trying times like that.

My symptoms..

Lung pain

Shortness of breath

Chills and a low grade fever

Restricted breathing

It felt like a boa constrictor wrapped around my ribcage, constricting.

Yes, covid is serious, obviously. It kills with reckless abandon. It scars the lungs of many, often permanently, like me.

The point of all of this...

Trump will be infectious for weeks. We need to call on the orange asshole to fully quarantine for several weeks.

Take it from someone who's had their eyes opened by this super-infectious disease. Me.
