I just got over a Serious bout with Covid-19 ; it nearly, took me out !
I was in good shape, non smoker, exercised every day , and took
Vitiman D, zinc, and other required supplements, for old people.
On Aug-3, i got a bad headache ; body temp, went to 101-F. the next day
the temp was spiking to over 103-F. Friday the 7’th, i got tested for
Monday the 10’th , it was obvious, that i was gonna need some help
to get through thus alive ; so i called the VA, and was informed that
there was nothing they could do, without a positive corona test result.
I was on my own … …
By the 11’th, blood was leaking from in my urine, stool, nasal cavity, and i’m
spitting blood from my lungs. Temp was spiking to over 104.5F and i’d jump
into the cold shower, every time it happened.
I had to hang on rather Tight , to remain in control ; was afraid to go
to sleep, out of fear, i wasn’t ever gonna wake up , and stayed in that
condition till the 15’th. That is when the fever broke, and the blood stopped
flowing from All my body orphus. That same afternoon, i got a letter
from the VA, stating i Was positive for corona 19 ; and was eligible
to come in for treatment , (now that i Did Not need them).
You guys — listen to me :
You do “NOT” want to catch this bug ; if your over 60. Don’t listen
to any Crap some dumb-Ass with a wanna be brain has to say ; this fricken
thing , “IS” dangerous !!!

Thank you for sharing Billie, I’m so glad you pulled through.
Hearing from people we know that were affected, makes it feel more real.August 19, 2020 at 7:45 PM #10029Bille FloydGeneral Member
Jerome said : “makes it feel more real.”
And this is as real as it gets :
Slowly suffocating , while drowning in a pool of your
own blood ; it is a truly Horrific way to die ! It almost
happened to me last week.

Glad you made it out the other side Billie. The infection rate is low and death rate lower, but that doesn’t mean they don’t happen. And may happen to those we know and care about.
The times I have chosen to fly, I have chosen to maintained my distance on launch, and upon landing I packed and left immediately. I miss socializing with everyone at the LZ, but I don’t think now is the best time so I have chosen not to.
We must be free to make our own choices. But I would encourage everyone to be good humans and to be cognizant of how your choices may effect others.
Be safe everyone.
