    I contracted it a couple of days before Christmas. It's a lot like the regular flu. Yesterday was pretty bad, today a little better. I can certainly feel it in my chest but it's not like I'm struggling to breathe but it's like I'm at about 70% of normal breathing.

    It's ironic that we are so close to a vaccine.

                Get well soon. If you aren’t 80+ years old or have any bad health problems you will be fine. I work for a company involved in testing and the stats for the normal population are really low concern. Not saying it will be fun but you will pull through no problem. Rest up!

                  Man, I saw your post and wanted to wish you well soon! I believe to many have family and close friends from COVID-19, I always felt lucky I knew a lot of people, but it was a double edged sword in 2020.... wishing you well soon!

                      Get well soon!! I dont wish it on anyone..I hope you have a mild case. I had it in march...a solid 2 weeks of hell. Now if its bad they can usually get you out of it in a hurry. At the time they wouldn't even see me because I could breath. In that 2 week time I ate over 120 Tylenol just to keep the fever in check ,as if I didn't damage my liver before that!! Im 54 never sick ...it just got me good!

                                        Take care of yourself Steve and get well soon! I know several that have suffered or are suffering in various degrees with it.
