    i remember when it was flattening the curve
    is there really anyway to stop this thing?
    been an advocate for herd immunity from the beginning
    i hope all here are ok as i do everyone
    no way china pays any price for this deadly virus now
    should have been international shunning

    Yes, don't we all know...I know I wish some made it that far.
    But, it's just a joke, man...it's funny, to me anyway...he also said he got absolutely no fide refects...
    I guess he's gotta stop making jokes because he's made a fortune at his craft ?

    its like asking people to stop fucking when aids broke out
    everyone saw the truth and people were concerned as they should have been
    but it was primarily the gay community and had little to do w the girl i just met unless she was spreading for everyone
    i've been patronizing every place i can that remained open for the same reasons
    it's not fair to subject private businesses to random orders and its not natural for a society to cower in fear
    no politician can regulate that
    but man have they been successful at instilling the fear cause i hear it daily from people who are hiding
    going for a bike ride w a buddy in Valencia today and he knows some places w can still hang out after
    99% and CA w the worst numbers maybe anywhere
    stop the madness and recall farcetti

    That's because most people want to be afraid.
    And they want to be told what to do.

    Such an odd, inexplicable fact about human nature, isn't it ?

    Probably goes way back to pre-civilization days.

    When there's a bunch of predators looking to eat you, being scared probably keeps you alive.

    Thanks for asking. Still waiting for taste and smell to return, but other than that, I'm doing OK. Very happy I didn't have to deal with any high temps or respiratory issues.

    Bad news is wife tested positive yesterday. As of this morning she still feels relatively good. Hoping she got a false positive.

    How about you and yours?

    thanks for asking
    last night was the worst so far
    wife woke up at 4am with a 101 temperature and sick to her stomach
    she’s down to 99.5 right now, but a little dizzy and weakened
    amazing that, so far, i haven’t caught it from her
    i should have the results from my 2nd test sometime this weekend, but (again, so far) i have no fever and only minor symptoms
    praying for the best

    aw fugh
    my heads only half here
    thanks for asking blazer, really appreciate it
    wife is really sick but still at home
    sleeping right now as we speak
    i’ve tested negative twice, but i feel pretty crappy tbh
    today is day 11 under quarantine for my wife, and today and two days ago were awful
    yesterday she actually felt improvement in the morning, unfortunately that was only momentary
    doctors are useless... not their fault, they just don’t know what to do
    we both have zero appetite, but we’re still eating as healthily as we can
    not sure what to do, caring for my wife as best as i can
    but i feel so fkn helpless

    sorry for the rant guys, just had to vent somewhere to someone and we are kind of a family (albeit dysfunctional lol)

    and thx again for asking blazer

    Yeah man this virus is just shitty. It affects people so differently. Lots of fluids, if difficult breathing try laying on your stomach. Vitamins with Zinc, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C and D. My gramps, mom , dad, sisters, brother in law’s and nieces nephews all had COVID and this worked well for them all. Lots of feedback from colleagues as well.

    and you’re right brother. Family here. Dysfunctional as fkuck.

    This is a website where you don't need to apologize for going on a long rant about personal stuff.
    Safe Space

    All jokes aside fuck the covid, God bless your wife for putting up with a member of DSP.
    Give her coconuts, buy a dozen and give her two in the morning before she eats.
    Just the water. Then you or her can eat the food later. But let that coconut water hit your kidneys on an empty stomach and let it circle around for at least half an hour before you start eating.

    Doctors can't do anything good other than stop you from dying if you are about to die, maybe.
    My dad had a cold for a couple of weeks but no covid. His tests were fine.
    His wife got covid and because he is compromised they took him to the hospital to help him breathe.
    He got sicker there and had some kind of attack and also did end up with covid.
    They put him in the torture machine to help him breathe and he did not survive it.
    Covid is a bad SARS mutation that gives you lung attacks making it hard to breathe which make it hard to taste/smell and leaves your blood with low amounts of oxygen causing all sorts of issues in many of your organs and limbs.
    Its bad news.
    Doctors that don't know what to do because they can only do what the books the drug companies publish say they are supposed to do.
    So when novel things happen they have no answers and can't innovate or even go backwards to older traditions because it is anathema to their scientific beliefs which are stationary and useless during a pandemic or whenever something new is happening.
    Science will strip you of your last shred of dignity and tell you they are trying to help you.
    Help you die.
    Kaiser lied to my mom about our grandpa too with the cancer.
    No more cancer they said and a few months later he has it again and dies a couple days after they tell us he has it.
    That was 25 years ago.
    My point is don't trust the doctors.
    Normally fine, trust them if you want but right now they have no clue.
    You are better off trusting Mr Miyagi and making your wife some ginger lemon tea and cutting out the mucus causing foods like sugar/dairy/wheat till lungs improve.
    And whatever you do don't let them put her in that horrible machine.
