Fuck you
My very good friends 87 year old mom has it. Saturday night was here worst night. Could not breath and he called me asking if he should call the ambulance. Told them chances are she will be sidelined at that age and left to pass. Best bet was to put her in a standing position. Do not let fluid build up in her lungs. They stayed up the entire night keeping her up right and or sitting straight up. By Sunday afternoon she was betting better with a 92 O2 saturation.. by Monday she was up to 95. Today she is able to walk around the house on her own. Her strain was a light one but her age made a hard time of it.

What has changed since March of 2020 here is infections are still happening, deaths are strictly dependant on strain of covid and how well your body is able to combat it. Treatments are some what better but still we are far from a true treatment. My verdict is still out on vaccines.. not to be a Nomad about it but I feel time has not proven conclusive on the results just yet.


Speedy recovery to those that have it.

In bed at 10, laid awake until 3:00 no luck so I got up, took a long shower, watched some TV and tried again at 5:30. Up at 9:30. Tired all day. I guess it’s to be expected. Gotta get some work done though. It’s bothering me sitting around burning off the days.
Hope you get over it quickly. Looking forward to that pizza!

No. Still in the mountains. Just thought it was interesting that they had received the vaccine and still got the Rona

Vaccinations are just NOW being rolled out....can you link something showing all the dead/infected were vaccinated???

As of yesterday .....and I'm in the tier one group:


"Employee COVID Vaccination update

Good Evening,

(REDACTED) have received their allotments of the COVID-19 vaccine and will begin the process of vaccinating employees tomorrow morning. The daily allotments of the vaccine are tightly controlled and monitored, so each employee wishing to receive a vaccination will be individually scheduled. Many of you have already been contacted and scheduled. Everyone else that responded to the sign-up survey that was sent out and has not yet been scheduled will be contacted over the next 2 days to set up their appointment. Please make sure you answer you phones over the next few days to help lessen the difficulty in contacting you to schedule your vaccination.

If you did not sign up for the vaccine, but now wish to receive it please respond to this email.

Notes on Vaccine Eligibility

  • You will be receiving the Moderna Vaccine.
  • You must be available 28 days after administration of the 1st shot for the 2nd dose.
  • If you have had a positive COVID test within the last 90 days it is not recommended that you receive the vaccination.
  • If you have had a Flu shot in the last 10 days it is not recommended that you receive the vaccine.
The vaccination process should take 30-45 minutes to complete the registration and mandatory 15-minute observation period after receiving the shot. Please be on time for you scheduled appointment.

Potential side effects of the vaccine may include fever, fatigue, and body aches among other flu-like........"

I would think deaths are far more dependent on how old you are
If you're under 65, you're more likely to win lotto than die from it. Over 65. distant chance. Over 75, tiny chance. Over 85, small chance.

Not even close

Mega millions chance of winning one in 326 million
Number of people in US = 328 million. Since more than 2 people under the age of 65 have died of covid, chances are much greater than winning the lotto

This shit has a mind of its own. One day I feel good and then the next it’s like it resets and starts all over. We can now add dry mouth and sore throat to the list of symptoms. On top of fever, couch, shortness of breath and some wicked body aches (mainly lower back).

Last night was difficult as I only got about 2 hours of sleep. Hard to sleep when you can’t breathe (congestion) and you can’t get comfortable because of lower back. My Garmin says I slept two hours but I think it was closer to 3-4 but it was not restful at all as I was up every 30-60 minutes.

The two pictures below are from my Garmin and show my stress level yesterday versus New Years Eve which was the last day with zero symptoms. I almost always have a stress level every day of mid 20s which is based on exercise/movement and sleep. It’s all calculated via activity versus heart rate. All the orange is stress, blue is rest and gray is activity

I dont get the point of waiting 5 or 7 days? The local health dept doesnt have testing? This is a pandemic... whats actually hurting people is delayed treatment.

You can show up at your local ER and get tested, with results within 30-45 minutes.
Then charged 500 for test 1000 for Tylenol and a male nurse will show you his butthole.

Sounds shitty to me.

I guess I should count my blessings im asymptomatic after having it last January..

Although the msm has said the new version is here in Chattanooga... Bullshit.

I told the VA what’s the point in getting tested if the results take so long?
I’ll never go back to VA for anything or use any type of veterans stuff. As an organization, it’s been my experience that they are worthy of staying away from. Free and worth every penny. Besides, I did my time, I got paid, I got out. I expect nothing from them. Just my personal take.
Get well Stites. I’m feeling worse than a couple days ago but all I have to do is think of those grunts on the ground in frozen Korea watching people drop, lose limbs to frostbite and starvation and I ask myself why my pussy hurts so bad. It’s all a matter of perspective. I’m fine til the end.

Wife works at the hospital and took a test this morning and got her results back today and is positive.

So far she hasn’t had the shit show of symptoms I have or even my daughter who is also sick.

I love the VA and have had many surgeries and they always take good care of me.

What are you doing for treatment? Acetaminophen seems to be helping the most

That's a shame... As much hell as I get for being unpatriotic I feel the va should be much much better..

Dad lost his prostate due to cancer from agent orange.

The va then took his benefits down cause he no longer had cancer... But without a prostate... You get the picture...

Slimeballs. Different states are much better... But most ive heard are horror stories

It's all about the Benjamins.....

3-5 day turnaround here.......did 1200 a day drive up at the casinos. Worked it a few times....National Guard assisted, or vice-versa.

Buddy's wife's test taken Wednesday at the urgent care....she got the + on Monday, but they knew.


I got the cushy gig doing the UFC fighters/crew on Tuesday and Saturday mornings for that night's event (challenger series I think it was called)

Everyone was quarantined at the hotel after the test. Health dept. picked up the kits and results almost immediately.

I have had over 20 covid tests all from Kaiser. I go in at 8am and have the results by noon. I know quite a few people who have had the virus and some just have a little discomfort and a few have died.

My normal vitamins, little Nyquil before bed and a shot of Jack here and there. Getting as much rest as I can force on myself. I’ll be at work Monday unless I’m a danger to someone else. The world ain’t slowin up for me and since I’m out to kick it’s ass, I can’t let it get too far ahead. Chin up motherfuckers! I’m coming!
