I'm sorry you can't get tested. Hope it's nothing and that you and your family are safe. It must be very scary to be in your situation.
Yeah, the stress of not knowing is as bad as anything. I keep seeing all these stories of the illness taking a sudden turn for the worse, even after you seem to be getting better. I've had a few relatively-sleepless nights worrying over my wife and daughter already. I imagine there are a few more yet to come. Or of course, I could be the one waking up in the middle of the night gasping for air.
It is absolutely and unequivocably inexcusable that the federal government didn't do anything to make testing more readily available. They sat on their hands about this for months, and it's going to kill a lot of people before it's all said and done.
Yeah, I'm on day 9. I've had the cough, chest issues, periodic light fever. I'm feeling a lot better today, though. I've been isolating even within my own home because so far nobody else is showing any symptoms. It absolutely infuriates me not to be able to get tested.
If nothing else, I'd love to see a full investigation launched of all of Trump's cronies (and all the rest of government insiders) to see who started dumping prior to everything going sideways. They couldn't get mobilized to make more PPE (personal protective equipment) or tests, but they sure as hell had time to dump their stocks. Throw them all in jail.
Mine is kinda weird, haven't coughed once and haven't shown even the slightest bit of fever or fatigue... Started off early last week with sinus irritation and a slight headache but no real congestion, with periods of light post nasal drip. Then on Wednesday I developed some mild shortness of breath and associated chest discomfort, not nearly enough to where I'm wheezing or gasping or anything, but enough to make me really feel it when I get back from taking the dog for a walk or lugging something upstairs. The sinus issues all dissipated a day or so after the breathing issues started, and here we are 5 days later and the mild shortness of breath hasn't gotten better or worse, it's just there... With absolutely NO other symptoms.
Hope you guys are both feeling better soon!
