    It sounds like there's a window for the presence of antibodies, so I wonder how useful such testing is.

    Nevada just made masks mandatory even outside. Our cases are rapidly increasing and I applaud our governor’s decision.

    We have been talking about it. We still think my DH may have had covid along with the flu (tested positive for flu, no covid test at that time) in January. He was very sick for three weeks. Then about a month later he had a stroke. The Neuro says the size and place of this second stroke doesn't explain the symptoms and amount of setback DH is experiencing. I get that there is compounded stress with all that is going on, it still doesn't totally explain why both of us have been feeling overwhelming fatigue for awhile now. We exercise and eat properly. We were not like this before. Afternoon naps have become a thing where they were never even a thought before. My sister is certain (has not tested) that is what she had when she went to Arizona in January and ended up coming home early due to fever and coughing/chest pain. She is still on two inhalers 6 months later. I would really love to know.

    So sorry simple that you all are going through all of that. Many people are having lingering fatigue and issues months later.

    I had an antibody test during my last every eight week blood donation. They are looking for antibodies which may be useful to transfuse to sick patients. It was negative. I am in a National covid study already. I Have sheltered in place and been meticulous about face masks and hand washing. Never had a symptom or came in close contact with someone positive I know of. I live next to a hotbed county. So far, we are not doing too baldly with cases in my county. However I often am the person who is one of only a few mask wearers which is why I am very careful about where I go.

    anyone who believes the medical opinion a medical coder, politician, plumber, talk show host, reporter, weatherman or neighbor is nuts. Here is who to believe. The CDC, WHO, NIH, top infectious disease specialists, scientists working on a vaccine and physicians who care for covid patients every day. They may not always be 100% right but they have a astronomically better chance at getting it right than the former group. And not TV doctors who run the talk show circuit hawking products for their own gain. Remember Hydroxychlorquine? Lupus and other people that it actually worked on could not get it after some snake oil salesman hawked it. It proved not to be helpful and maybe harmful. Now we have tons of it in the federal stockpile. Gee, I wonder who owns stock in those companies Donald and friends?

    Word!!
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    It was announced today MLB players will not be wearing masks during games, even though they can be in close contact - for example, when tagging someone at a base or the plate.

    He is so over it! And he can tweet insults at it all night long, but it won't be intimidated by him at all.
