That sucks!
Make sure you rest as much as you can to give your body as much strength as possible to fight the virus. And by rest i mean, if it’s not life-threatening it doesn’t need doing.

Very sorry to hear this, please get well soon.

How many flashlights does a "real man" need?

None, real men are not afraid of the dark.

Prayers sent out to you buddy. Stay strong mentally and physically. I hear it’s really hard to get out of bed but make yourself. Do some light walking around your room or house.
Perhaps this maybe of some help

Good Luck, I have heard that there are some breathing/lung exercises that can help.

Your body is a lean mean fighting machine.
And it has been preparing a lifetime long for days like this.
So let it do what it can do best: beat these little buggers.
Your only concern is to avoid distraction from that task.
So rest a lot, and eat and drink properly.
To check the last: if you pee less, drink more (water)!

And most of all: keep up your morale!
A bit of luck might help => I wish you a lot of it.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I normally sleep on my side, rarely on my back.
The word is that if breathing gets labored with Covid-19 to sleep/rest on one’s stomach .. Hospitals in the UK have used pregnancy pillows to ease breathing. These pillows have a large void and only support the upper body and hips.
Sure you can jury rig something with several pillows.

So best of luck and do recall that mortality rates are low. I’ll be 73 this July so I’m in a high risk group.

Been sick, trying to recover. COVID-19
Hello everyone, i somehow got unlucky, got the COVID-19 virus. I have been feeling strong flu symptoms for a week, fever, cough, & no-energy, but after a call to the doc, i am now under the weather and doing what i can to make it through it. I will post updates when i can here in this topic.

No no DBSAR, you’re doing this all wrong, you’re supposed to get sick of us, not sick with COVID-19.

Seriously though, my best wishes to you and yours.

Keep getting up and moving around . You need rest but you can’t stay down.

You can't compare the big flashlight in the sky to the little flashlight in your hand.

How do you know it is COVID-19.
Diagnosed via telephone?

Yh that’s what I’m thinking. Anyone who has sysmptoms is automatically labeled as having COVID-19 but does that mean they actually have the Sars-CoV-2 virus? I don’t think normal cold symptoms should last over a week though.
