Thread: I tested positive for Covid

  1. #1
    Got a runny nose and scratchy throat on July 4. I had a Covid 19 Home Test Kit so took the test yesterday and it came up positive. Took it again today and it came up positive again.

    But the thing is I don't feel sick. The runny nose and scratchy throat was annoying but no loss of energy. I did take a nap today after a good nights sleep last night.

    Called my Primary. She knows my age and medical history, knows I'm in the high risk group. She was surprised I wasn't feeling bad. She said the 4 covid shots probably kept me from getting sick.

    She said I would be getting a call from the hospital. They will probably want me to come in and confirm I got it. She said something about an infusion. I'm going to have to goodle that one to see what it is.

    Good luck with it. AIQ got it a few days before you.

    I've heard a range of stories but it seems like the latest variants are much easier than the earlier ones.

    Infusion?

    It’s random the outcome is based on genetics.
    Sadly theres No money in educating the public on this.



    4 covid shots ? Is that what everyone is doing?

    I had covid February 2020. Got it at Borgata. Tired for a week real bad headache coughed for like two months.

    Second time in July 2021 I was in Biloxi. Lost my smell and taste no cough headache lasted a few weeks.

    Third time was January of this year , got it from a friend who was positive and visited me at home.
    Just a runny nose slight headache, never really felt sick .

    I don’t have the vaccine.

    Druff and Mickey are the only two staunch righties who have taken 4 shots LOL. Definitely a very rare occurrence !

    Arguing against left wing insanity does not make one a staunch rightie. I’m actually in the middle.

    You can’t get around the fact that the unvaccinated die at 17 times the rate of the vaccinated.

    Yes, I know. The stats are bogus, right? You betcha.

    With all do respect mick that stat is not correct

    In fact all case mortality is up about 25 percent in the highest vaccinated areas.

    Why that is is open for debate I guess

    What’s not up for debate is the genetic research regarding covid.

    Statistics have a lot of nuances. You really got to know how to decipher shit. Is saying the deaths for the vaxxed went up really the truth? If 1K people are vaxxed and 10 of them die....how do you compare that to 2K people vaxxed and 20 of them die? The number of deaths doubled....but twice as many people were vaxxed. It's a wash but if deciphered wrong it can appear that the death rate went up. It didn't. In other words, sure, more vaxxed are dying....but that's because more and more people have been vaxxed. Most Americans are vaxxed now.

    Since the vaccine came out regularly published results are that the unvaxxed die at a rate multiple times higher than for the vaccinated.

    This was just published a month ago in the Scientific American for death rates in March, 2022:

    Another way to think about the protection vaccination provides is to compare the ratios of death rates among the vaccinated and unvaccinated. For the month of March, “unvaccinated people 12 years and older had 17 times the rate of COVID-associated deaths, compared to people vaccinated with a primary series and a booster dose,” says Commissioned Corps of the U.S.Public Health Service commander Heather Scobie, deputy team lead for surveillance and analytics at the CDC’s Epidemiology Task Force.* “Unvaccinated people had eight times the rate of death as compared to people who only had a primary series,” suggesting that boosters increase the level of protection.

    It is also important to consider the ages of those who are dying. People 65 and older make up the group that is both the most likely to be vaccinated (and boosted) and the most likely to die of COVID. (Being older is one of the biggest risk factors for severe COVID because the immune system weakens with age.) So when you separate the age groups, it becomes even clearer that vaccination reduces the risk of death. And because immune protection from vaccination wanes with time, and because some older people do not mount a good immune response to the primary series, being boosted reduces that risk even further.

    An additional factor to consider is that as the pandemic wears on and a disproportionate number of unvaccinated people die from COVID, the unvaccinated population shrinks. This leaves a comparatively larger vaccinated group, leading to an increase in total deaths despite the lower death rate among vaccinated people. No vaccine is 100 percent effective, but immunization reduces the risk of dying from COVID substantially."

    The latest Washington State study, published a week ago says unvaxxed in my age bracket in June died at 4.2 times the rate of vaxxed.

    Texas data published on June 10 for May deaths showed unvaxxed died at 21X the rate of vaxxed.

    Should I go with multiple studies that show unvaxxed dying at higher rates or should I go with the "they can't fool me" crowd in the internet forums?

    Should I believe my Doctor who says the 4 covid shots probably saved me from getting really sick....or should I believe maxpen who says the vaxx is poison?

    Mickey-there are some meds they give you within 4 days to (they claim) reduce the symptoms, etc. One warning to you though. They cannot give you those meds if you are on statins or certain blood pressure meds. Tell them what you are on. If they can't give you those meds they do use an infusion instead so they may already be aware of that for you.

    All three times I got covid my Cock got rock hard for like 13
    Hours the first day. My Head was almost purple like some kind of overdose of viagra side effect. I think that suggest that covid antibodies are stored in the cock. So the more surface area one has down there directly correlates with how fast you recover.

    You should believe unbiased data.

    Your risk of death was higher on your cross country trip from driving then it is from covid. That’s unvaccinated or vaccinated.

    However if you have a certain genetic profile vaxed or not your dead.

    Thanks, regnis. I'm on Atorvastatin for cholesterol and losartan for high blood pressure. Yesterday my Primary told me someone would be giving me a call requesting that I come in. But she also told me it's up to me whether I want to come in or not. And if I got bad do the walk in at the emergency room.

    Today, in honor of having covid and not being able to go around people I washed and vacuumed my van. Then armoralled everything up.

    I got a runny nose but that's about it. A little hacking up flim here and there. Other than that I feel fine.
