I eat some surprisingly weird stuff, but never camels, bats, or other spiny animals. Seriously, what are the Chinese doing eating these things? Yuck. 

If this is merely a cold I always thought that a cold was without a high fever? My fever without moderating tylenol/advil has been right around 102.

I was trying to watch a show called The Expanse and I don't think my brain is working right because I can rewatch an episode I can see that I have already watched and it is all new. 

I am really tired of coughing so hard that I get dizzy and my head hurts. Sneezing is always fun, though.

I have to say that does sound like covid19.

Get LOTS of rest TG.  Viruses can do permanent damage to people who work out or strain themselves a bit.

Hey maybe you are patient zero and have mutated your very own version of Covid19. Now that would be exciting. Take care and get better soon. My personal get well arsenal contains strong cups of tea - and plenty of them, and chocolate digestive biscuits. It's a winning combination. It works particularly well whilst you are wearing your pajamas and watching an old movie. xx

Love The Expanse.  Miller is one cool dude.  And Bobbi she could kick anyone's butt... but seriously please rest.  

My backup plan was chloroquine which supposedly shipped two weeks ago, but was told today the order was going to be refunded i(darn, I was really looking forward to the 6 free Cialis).  Just kidding, so it will be Sambucol and essiac tea for me.

Turbo your test is most likely what they are calling presumptive positive. They have to send to CDC for confirmation

So funny thing happened to me a little while ago. I had to order groceries from Hyvee. Protip: If your bill is above $100 delivery is free.

Anyway, the guy showed up and I walked out onto the balcony. I said to him, hey just leave the boxes there on the ground and I will come get them when you're gone. 

He said that he couldn't do that and why was I telling him to set them down there anyway and was I going to tip him?

I said, "I have coronavirus, do you really want cash from me or for me to touch anything that is yours?"

He said, "I see...." Set the boxes down, got in his car and drove away. Seems like the answer was no. 

At least now I have Asparagus!!!

You may well be his first case of corona virus. I bet you scared the pants off him. I had no idea you have to tip the delvery guy. We don't tip anyone here in NZ. I've tried to but I've been followed out of a number of cafes for leaving money on the table and they've given it back to me. lol.

"I see"   

But on the flip side, it illustrates how careless people are still being even though the alarm gong is crashing.  It's just not in their ken that this thing has spread.

So I just got off the phone with the doctors!

They sent my snot to the CDC who proclaimed me free of Covid19, however they said that I *DID* have "A Coronavirus" and was hereby ordered to stay in isolation until I am better. 

My comment of, "Well if I don't have *THE* Coronavirus I should be good to go out and spread disease and good cheer amongst society, right?" was met with a long silence and then, "No... What we really don't need right now is you going out and spreading an entirely different virus..."

He has no sense of humor or they deal with a whole bunch of dumbarses. 

I am still coughing, slightly feverish, and my lungs are full of fiberglass.

So.... first, glad it's not "the" CV. And that you got groceries. And hoping you feel better soon!!!

That said - what's up with the initial test being kind of positive? Does this identify a testing issue?

Asking because I just read this on Facebook:

 One was about a nurse practitioner who went to Hawaii for vacation and came back with the sniffles. After two weeks at work with the sniffles, she tested positive for COVID-19. She never had a fever - never had a cough - nothing but sniffles. Then xxx said that she has been looking but has not been able to find anything to confirm that the test they use specifically tests for the COVD-19 strain and not just "coronavirus".   xxx  is looking at things through the lens of a couple of decades in animal and vet science.

No idea. Is the first test to see if it is a coronavirus and the second at CDC says whether or not it is the real deal? 

The thing I think we are all really missing is that this thing is an escaped weapon of war. Why the blue F*** is China developing biological weapons? And if they are developing this shit, why isn't the rest of the planet slapping crippling embargoes on them?

Very glad you don't have the CV, but am really confused with the information you were given.  Transparency is everything right now .  If you were the average uninformed person  hearing this, you might just decide to throw caution to the wind especially if you need groceries, etc., or just have cabin fever.

What I am confused about is if you don't have "the coronavirus", does that mean you have a known coronavirus, as opposed to the novel version, or do you have an as yet unknown variant of covid19, one of the 49 variants?

The doctors didn't get into specifics other than, "You have a coronavirus, but not Covid19." I don't think he thought I would have understood what they meant if they had said what specific version I have. If that was his feeling, It isn't like they're justified. I definitely would not have understood.

What I do know is that this thing is kicking my ass. The coughing is the worst. After all this is said and done I never want to cough again for the rest of my life.

You need to be careful the coughing could be the start of pneumonia.  If you don't get better by tomorrow I would call the doc and see if you need to go in to hospital and get an xray.

Seems they should be able to diagnose exactly which coronavirus you have. After all the sample did go to the CDC. It should have been identified and diagnosed.

I took a little of Mom's advice and boogied back to the hospital. They decided I was at risk of pneumonia so gave me a zpack. 

I bought some mucinex at Target while picking up my prescription and although the stuff tastes like Albert's rotten ass feet ;) wow does it work. 

I went in there wearing a mask. Although it was almost totally empty, if you walk around with a mask on people tend to get the heck out of your way. I went through the self checkout aisle and the attendant there kept getting close to me. I told him that I was trying to stay away because i am sick. He said, "It's all good, bro!" and kept screwing around until I said, "Dude, I have a version of coronavirus, I'm not f***ing with you, please stay away from me." Then he got the message and backed up with an "Oh s***" look on his face.

Turbo, glad you took Mom's advice, mom is all knowing and all seeing...listen to Mom.  My son knows that and will tell you that!  LOL!

Be sure you drink a lot with mucinex.   Do not drink milk it creates phlegm!!    Stay well keep us up to date!   If you can use a cold vaporizer.

I went in there wearing a mask. Although it was almost totally empty, if you walk around with a mask on people tend to get the heck out of your way. I went through the self checkout aisle and the attendant there kept getting close to me. I told him that I was trying to stay away because i am sick. He said, "It's all good, bro!" and kept screwing around until I said, "Dude, I have a version of coronavirus, I'm not f***ing with you, please stay away from me." Then he got the message and backed up with an "Oh s***" look on his face.

What's the dosage of your ZPack? How many milligrams, how often, for how long? You know in case someones fish gets sick and can't make it to the hospital errr I mean Vet.

250 mg per pill. 

5 days worth. Day 1: 500 mg all at once then one 250 mg per day for 5 days. 6 pills total.

You might get the shits.

Be sure you drink a lot with mucinex.   Do not drink milk it creates phlegm!!    Stay well keep us up to date!   If you can use a cold vaporizer. 

Well you're the mom I took advice from.

Although the I.P says Los Angeles, in China they have to use proxy servers to post anywhere in the U.S.  If he is in China, he could have some good information for us, or at the very least he may have relatives or friends in China (Wuhan).

Luckily our forum translates to Chinese so he can easily read all posts.  Having said that, not sure why I just posted a Chinese reply, lol.

lol... come on man... they're not that bad.  Don't be a hater lol. 

On another note, was wondering about a zpack.  Wonder why they are suspecting bacterial pneumonia.  Hope it works.

That is an easy one, Albert.  Coronaviruses (including the common cold version) damage the lining of the bronchial tubes and the alveoli.  This damage can let the bacteria that cause bronchitis and pneumonia in to do damage.  (These bacteria are in our environment all the time, but our immune systems kill them as quick as a wink.)

I hate coughing. That's legal right? I am so tired of coughing. It'd be really nice if there was a youtube channel dedicated to the best coughs and I could get paid for some of these hum-dingers I've belted out over the last few days.

I'm still coughing, I think they gave me the ZPack prophylactically to prevent things just in case, not because they saw anything. I haven't really noticed a difference.  

But the mucous of this thing. Remember old school Godzilla and the time Tokyo was so polluted that the pollution rose up and created a whole new monster that Godzilla had to come along and kick that thing's ass? Hedora I think it was called? Like a big slime monster?

I think that my mucous and the last week is loosely based on that monster's movie. Yes the psychedelic parts too. Those were the fever parts.

Keep the crap coming up and keep taking the Mucinex, keep drinking water/juice, and keep taking your meds!!!  This too shall pass as my 97 yr old mother still tells me...LOL!   Keep posting and I hope your family knows where you are exactly located so they can send someone if you get more ill!  If you don't have family tell Albert exactly where you are, so we can send the troops if we don't hear from you.   This is MOM talking!
