Beware Of A New Virus

Last week I tested negative twice for Covid, but this so-called "stomach virus" walks like Covid, talks like Covid and has almost all of the same symptoms as Covid - oh and it's a straight-up BEAST. 9 straight days of fever, chills, body aches, extreme fatigue, headaches and diarrhea to name some of the symptoms. Tomorrow I'm going to my primary care physician and I'll attempt to get the straight skinny on this thing. Personally, I think it's a mutation of Covid and they don't have a test for it yet.

You don't want this, trust me. Be careful out there!

    I'm sure you've heard this a million times, but it's worth repeating - drink plenty of fluids, including Pedialyte.

    I was just told by a fellow Atlantan that there's a summer C-19 virus going around, however it is detectable by current test kits. What's puzzling to me is cases like yours and mine that are very similar to C-19, but are not showing up in test kits. I'm wondering if it's mutated again and I have a new version that hasn't been identified yet. Who knows? The good news is I'm turning the corner on this thing.

    I'm about 90% back to normal right now. Nose still a little stuffy. I get a little of the "crud" every time I come here. I come to England every year for work for 2-3 weeks (not nearly as cool as it sounds, England pretty much sucks...). When I was here in 2021, I had to take a Covid test before leaving, another within 3 days after arriving, and another before leaving. I was a little worried about the the departure test because I felt like c.rap the whole time.

    My Mother was sick then got me sick a few months ago. (It was covid) lasted like a week but what’s funny is when I showed up dying to my doctor on day 3 he said, “We don’t test anymore. We just treat the symptoms and want you getting better.”

    I would have cracked up laughing had I not been shivering out of control all the while sweating my behind off.

    He’s right. I was sick…these are my symptoms…let’s do something about that!!
