Thanks for sharing your story. I thankfully haven't had to deal with it, but working primarily at a food pantry at a YMCA, I have heard a lot of stories. One of my jobs was to contact COVID families under quarantine and one person that I contacted whom had contracted early on (late March early April) was saying how he finally felt better and telling me how horrible his experience was (and this was in July). An acquaintance of mine contracted and passed away at the early age of 32. The only other condition he had was asthma and a few weeks prior, he was in Colombia having the time of his life.
Another family friend went in to the hospital because his wife wasn't feeling well. They tested him and he was positive. His wife went home a week later and he didn't. They suspected it they got it from another friend who thought it was a hoax and made a point to hug people.
Once we did reopen the Y, one of the first people to come was a nurse. She began sharing her experiences with me and how horrible it was to open up one floor, to second floor all the way up to 7 floors of covid patients. They couldn't do CPR and she knew the ones that were going to make it and those who weren't. Worst for her, since she lived in a house with roomates, she couldn't even be comfortable in her own home. When she got home, she would go straight to her room so her roomates didn't become infected.
I think the other forum has reached a lot of very interesting topics but it is important to maintain a focus on how bad this disease can be and as things begin to open up, we still have to do everything possible to reduce the rate and not get infected ourselves.
