I have a couple of the symptoms of Covid-19

I’ve had a very bad cough for a long time. Also, I’m more disorientated than usual. I’m no marvel of efficiency, but I have been more confused than normal.

Do you have a fever ? Do you have a thermometer ?

No. No fever. I think that is one of the most definitive symptoms. They took me to urgent care, and they gave me some antibiotics for my cough, and it seemed to work for a while, but now the cough is back.

I’d call your medical people again then. A persistent cough is no good.


If you have bronchitis, that can take up to six weeks. I hope they took an X-ray to rule out pneumonia.

I hope you don’t have Covid 19 and I hope you start feeling better soon.

That would be great. Anything would be better than covid-19

I don’t feel sick. It’s just that damn cough.

If you feel short of breath then you should get checked out.

My dad used to beat me with the belt.

Now he beats me with the cough.

I’ve been keeping track of that. For a while it seemed like things I used to do with ease wiped me out, but then I realized it was because I was wearing a mask when I did those things. When I started taking my mask off when I was walking up the stairs to my apartment I didn’t get quite so winded, but I did get winded more than usual.

Fever and shortness of breath. Get checked out if you have those two.

For how long? Days? Weeks?

Did they take a chest xray when you went to urgent care?

Hope you don’t have the virus @crimby.
Here’s to a speedy recovery.

I haven’t kept track, but I would guess that I’ve had in two or three weeks. It comes and goes. Sometimes I think it is over with, and I won’t have it for a few days, but then it comes back.
