    My covid experience

    So finally got it now I have natural immunity
    Figure writing this out I was looking for others experience just to get some idea and I have had a lot of folks I know who have had it so here is mine

    Our friends are about 50/50 on the vax and most are non mask types
    Have had no friends die but two hospitalized one has had serious issues but she had a lot of issues to begin with diabetes weight and lung issues etc...
    Quite a few got bad flu like symptoms really bad cough etc...
    And about equal with was like a cold but they felt it
    A few were a few days barely noticed or not a big deal reckon I fall into this

    So myself
    Not vaxed no desire either !
    58yr old 5’11” 175-180lbs lean ripped insane shape
    Eat zero sugar 0 junk 0 process food etc...
    Diet is Carnivore but OK with a few whole foods but rarely do anything but meat just no desire to and no reason check my blood enough again labs etc... insane good true metabolic shape etc...

    I had history of lung damage from sulfur dioxide in my 40s I was around a lot and it got to me that is my only bad history I was worried about
    But I used to be a big free diver like 4 min breathe hold rode 250+ miles a week on bicycle and swam a insane amount etc...
    Never been a drinker never did drugs etc... I had a craft beer like 3 years ago at a friends 4th july so truly no drinking person my only vice is Espresso

    So on Fri the 5th my wifes Bday I was going to have a tiny bite of some mochi ice cream she got as a desert on her and kids Bday I allow myself one bite of their Bday treat but was like HUH I cant taste it so grabbed my coffee beans could not smell ! HMMM grab some vinegar and YUP no smell at all I did think I was a bit worn down tired that day but just chalked it up to a lot of work but kinda knew with the smell what was up !
    Whats funny is at dinner I could taste my food ! So my smell went within a hour !
    Called in and could not get test till Mon no temperature or anything ? Did take some nyquil that night just to help lower any fever and get a bit more rest in case that would be a issue

    So Sat 6th I did have a bit of ache in my upper body kinda like I had done some yard work in my arms and was a bit more tired than usual I never take naps never get tired during day kinda person took some dayquil in morning temp was at 100.4 (not a fever) was back to normal couple hours later that eve (bedtime) took some nyquil again just to help sleep and temp was back to about 100 so bring that back down no cough or any breathing issue

    Sun 7th my upper body was fine but my lower body now was a bit soar and again was more tired than usual and slept in quite late got up temp was 100.4 again so took some dayquil no cough no breathing issues temp back to normal in a few hours

    Mon 8th got up felt quite good no aches temp was again at 100.4 so took some dayquil and went to my drive through check and got the results a few hours later (quick check) just took it easy and got to bed early no temp that eve no cough no breathing issue felt fine

    Tue 9th no temp in morning no aches no pains felt good just took it easy no cough no breathing issues

    Wed 10th I could smell my shaving stuff ! So smell was back No temp no aches again took it easy no cough no breathing issue

    Thur 11th I did get a bit of chest tightness and a bit of lung feeling when I breathed deep almost like super light feeling bronchitis but no coughing no wheezing etc... so scheduled a doctors call (like call in telemed thing) that day just to see about getting something for the lungs to make sure nothing got in and asked for some albuterol and qvar 80 (got the generic equiv) asked about ivermectin (YIKES with that guy) this was a zoom call he did say if he had not known he would not have thought I had it as many he said cant complete sentences without a extra breathe and do seem to have some labored breathing and very common cough and just appear sick and tired

    Fri 12th woke up perfectly fine about a hour later I could feel a touch of tightness in my lungs again no cough no other issues but taking the albuterol qvar cocktail to be safe (past history) and would say a few days of the albuterol qvar everything was fine

    Basically have just kept up on the albuterol qvar and will continue till its gone I never had a cough never had any breathing issues again I could feel it but was super minor today the 21st been fine for over a week and feel fine and would say for sure its gone

    The only thing that started about the 12th 13th was a bit of a clear my throat thing that I am positive was just that lung tightness breaking free and getting out from the lung cocktail
    again this was like a few times a day to clear my throat and no real issue but was there

    So overall for me a few days of feeling soar/tired but again was so nill I have had colds that felt worse this was like I worked in the yard feeling more than soar !
    The fever/temp never broke 101 never lasted more than a couple hours and was controlled by the nyquil one dose at bed one at wake I hate hate taking drugs if I do not need to so a few days and was done and the 2nd week that bit of lung tightness again very small but again not taking chances ! I know this is a real thing like the flu etc... things can sneak up and bite you ! so be honest with yourself and get a scrip if you have to !

    I used to be a medic and worked in EMS and I do study the heck out of health and fitness etc... so pretty good on that side of things but did consult a doctor ! Again not a denier ! But a realist and this is real thanks China and our own mengele fauci

    Side note on doc hahahah I do not have a set normal doc anymore I need to get one but this guy OH WOW I asked about ivermectin and I might as well have asked about killing puppies or something got the horrid lecture on that stuff is dangerous and not safe or approved for covid and it does nothing but can kill you etc..
    then I got the get vaxed lecture to be safe in a few weeks etc... ? Was your typical no clue doc IMHO but was just a telemed call to get something for my lungs
    but the push to get me vaxed was insane he would not let it go ! And kept trying to make me agree that its something we all need to do to be safe and the only way life will be normal etc. OH WOW to funny on that he was nice but a true leftist drank the kool-aid type I reckon !
    He did say the albuterol and qvar cocktail is a thing that is common for lung issues with covid which makes since since its a common bronchitis thing localized steroids work in this case

    I did wait a bit just to make sure nothing popped back up or so before writing this
    but reckon good to go for a week plus now
    Might try to get some lab work done in a few months for antibody check as I am my own lab experiment now

    Kinda a relief to have this behind me now honestly I never wear a mask I shake hands and so on I do think this is a WHEN you get it more than IF and do think being in good shape is the most important thing for not only this but quality of life etc...

    If you choose believe in the vax cool to like anything freedom and nobody should be against what you want to do with your body my wife got the Moderna which I am fine with she did her research and decided that was best for her and family history etc..
    she is not a health freak like me I try to nudge but maybe one day she will be but she is pretty good about eating properly no sugars etc...

    Nobody else got it in the house and I did stay home throught it all

    Glad youíre feeling better.

    My fully vaccinated wife and non vaccinated 4 year old son both have COVID-19 right now.

    The boy is unfazed and operating at 100% effort, his immune system is unimpressed with the Communist Chinese biological agent.

    Wife has been fully vaccinated since April or March if memory serves. Probably could have gotten a booster by now, but didnít. She works administrative duties at a rural health clinic, so she is exposed on a daily basis to COVID-19 positive patients and had been from the start of cases appearing in our area. Itís a wonder she didnít get it sooner.

    Her symptoms are so mild that until she lost her sense of smell on Wednesday night we thought it was just a cold. Never had a fever, barely any cough, mild sore throat for a bit, and a runny nose. Were she not working for a healthcare provider she probably would have just continued working. However, since she is exposed to immune compromised, and elderly people every day we agreed that she is ethically obligated to not knowingly expose patients to COVID. As of today she feels pretty much normal and her sense of smell is returning to normal. She never lost her sense of taste oddly enough. So even though she got a breakthrough case, the Moderna vaccine certainly didnít exacerbate symptoms, and can probably fairly be given credit for making them extremely mild. She said sheís had colds way way worse than this.

    Iím fully vaccinated with Moderna as of approximately July 1st. I have no symptoms at all, have not quarantined, and continue to operate as per normal except for self isolation in my office and sleeping in a spare bed room.

    Yeah diamondback that doc is NOT my kinda dude I can relate to AT ALL
    We had to change pediatricians as ours went off the deep end a few years back about gun control and idiocy and prying my wife just says I am Canadian !!! Like she must be against it and he left the question alone ? We found new one ASAP that do not ask so good enough ! But for sure docs have changed over last 10+ years to be political sadly

    Coal dragger yeah kids seem to be non fazed ! But hey Fauci wants to poke babies now ! Insanity
    Will be curious if you get it ? (Breakthrough) or the shot kept it away or you never would have ? Million dollar question we will never know My wife wondered if her shot saved her from getting it from me ? I had mentioned she got the moderna above so interesting oh she also had her booster some time ago never more than a sore arm for a day or so

    your wife almost like me the smell was the WHAT UH-OH moment ya can tell her HEY some guy on the forum was like you ! Hahahahaha

    I did loose some taste but more related to that no smell which I think enhances the taste so my espresso I could pick out the bitter notes but not the sweet so maybe to say taste was altered

    I think my Moderna vaccine is still in the first 6 months of high effectiveness and hers being a few months prior had started to fall off. She hadn't had a booster before getting it.

    I'll probably go ahead and get a booster next week or the week after just to be safe since I had no negative side affects from the first series of shots. She'll probably get a booster as well.

    Given that my 4 year old son was climbing all over me, sharing food and drink, coughing in my face etc the night before he got a positive test result I can only assume the Moderna vaccine has been effective for me. I suppose it is possible I have an even milder case than my wife or I am asymptomatic, and if that is the case I still got some value from the vaccine.

    Yes I get colds and I get the flu. Especially now that I have a live in mobile disease factory called a child.

    Glad you're doing ok.
    Wife (RN) tested positive last Wednesday after feeling crummy with fever. We both started ivermectin and other than feeling run down with a slight cough she was fine. Fever was gone after the first day. Her clinic asked her to come back to work this last week after 7 days. I never got it. I had it last fall and I'm pretty sure I've got some natural immunity.

    Thanks
    Curious on how you got the ivermectin like did you ask or did the doc say going to get you on this ? Or did your wife (RN) get it herself or through a doc friend ?

    Did the pharmacy give you any issues ?

    Interesting on going to work 7 days I was told no go anywhere for 10
    Glad she is doing well and sounds like minimal and you skirted it

    I had a backup plan of a naturopath if I thought I was going to need it so just curious if it comes up again

    I do say like thinking HEY I want a blue VW and then you get one and realize how many others you see have a blue VW now talking with friends who had covid I think more skirted it than had issues than I realize ! Just chatted with a buddy yesterday and asked he was like yeah whole family big nothing I was riding 30 miles a day (bicycle guy) and would just skip a day but was over in 3 days with less than a cold feeling

    Again I wont mess with it and ignore it but feeling like its just another thing

    Serious question: if you can get monoclonal-antibodies, why would you even think about Ivermectin? I don't understand the insistence on Ivermectin when stuff like the M-A are available.
