    My wife is an RN, and she had an exposure at work. Now we have it, but we both assumed it was a matter of time since she’s a nurse and I’m a cop.

    The first day was brutal, but it has tapered off to minor inflammation and extreme fatigue. On the plus side, I can use a vacation from work, so I can’t complain.

    Have you been tested? What’s your age range? Your post makes it sound like it’s just you and your wife at home which probably means you’re very young or on the older side (no kids at home).

    Hope you have a speedy recovery!

    Prayer for you both, friend. Thanks to both of you trusted public servants!
    No way of knowing,- I don't know what you gotta do to get an "antibody" test, but I think I had it. It hangs on a while. Just rest, take it easy and look forward to a good future!

    Bad luck, but as long as there are no respiratory problems you both are golden. Have you a pulse oximeter?

    well good luck since i hear from watch the news that you pretty much always die from this..were you trying to get rid of anything cool and do you have a will make sure you do!

    Just wanted to make sure you were prepared since this is almost always fatal once you get it with supposedly/apparently no recovery possible or very rare apparently...

    I would imagine you need a vacation lately. Wuflu or Riots? Hope you guys heal up but I would milk it for as much time off as possible.

    We need a thread with actual Wuflu recoveries with their personal stats and what they took and how they felt during recovery. How do you feel about putting private info. On a forum for all to see?

    My wife is also a nurse, and has treated COVID patients. We figure it is inevitable too.

    Wife and son both sick in late February. But antibody test (hers) negative. Mine as well.

    Last week I had a weird "barky" cough, no phlegm, chest burning sensation ( mild) and felt wiped out. Got up as usual at 5:30 got wife and son breakfast...then went back to bed 'til 11:00. Just didn't / couldn't do anything. Four days in a row, then it faded. Feel fine now.

    The 'Rona? Who knows?

    We’re both in our forties, and we both had the deep nostril swabs...the ones that tickle the brain.

    She came back positive, and I came back negative. But a doctor has declared me a false negative due to the severity and variety of symptoms we’ve both had and continue having. And we were told that method only has a sixty percent chance of identifying the virus.

    Neither have had a fever at all, but neither did the eighty-eight year patient who is the suspected exposure link.

    We both had the worst headache either of us have experienced. It was off the charts. Fatigue is relentless no matter how much sleep or rest we get. Chronic joint inflammation continues to hit us, along with random muscle pains with no rhyme or reason. I had shortness of breath for two days which has now left, and I hope it stays gone. She hasn’t had any which is good.

    I was out of commission for two weeks in January.
    My wife is convinced that I had it then.
    I never go to doctors so have no idea if it was Covid, or just a case of industrial strength crud.

    I hope you and your wife have a smooth recovery!

    You mention fatigue...... I gotta look into this......
    Considering the people I am forced to work near daily, maybe I had it already.
