Question for you Covid Survivors.


Let's say you know someone with the Delta Force variant.

They got sicker than hell for a couple days.

Then they started feeling a shìt ton better. Like everything is okeydokey except for a little sniffle and no sense of taste or smell.


Was that it? Or was the Delta Force just waiting to give them an expertly flung Judy Chop?

Asking for a friend....

First bout made me sick for about a week but lingered for a couple more. Second bout I just felt a little feverish for 3-4 days then felt like I had a slight cold or allergies kicking in.

I had something, no idea what, that gave me a wickedly sore throat and 3 days of high fever. Now I’m mostly better except my throat still hurts like dammit. Like I’m loosing weight due to not eating throat hurts.

Tested neg for Strep and Neg for the Delta88 yesterday. Of course Dr says I could have had it and just cleared, no virus but lingering symptoms. Who knows, but I believe I may survive.

Didn’t have the Delta variant, but last November it knocked my dick in the dirt for 4-5 days. Took close to a month to get stamina back to close to normal at the gym and cutting wood. Still feel like I get winded after I run a mile or other heavy cardio.

Never lost taste or smell. Tested positive for a month, work wouldn’t let me come back without a negative test.

Three days worth of the worst hangover I’ve ever had. Nutzo headache, chills. Fourth day back to work.

Exactly. To the "T".



Just wondering if this thing is gonna "circle back around" once he starts feeling cocky. No?

I had the delta variant almost 3 months ago. Stuffed head, headache, some chest congestion, lost taste and smell. Doc gave me a shot of decadron (sp) and a Zack. Felt great after a few days. However, my taste and smell are only back maybe 25%.

Loss of taste and smell is a giveaway to me, not sure of the variant I had.

Doc said if your symptoms subside and you feel better, stop taking the meds, so I’d guess that meant it’s about over.

Jim it’s hard to say because this China bug affects everyone so differently. I’m 8yrs shy of my medical degree but I’d have to believe that’s the worst/end of it for you friend.

I know a couple of people who felt good after a few days, then over exerted themselves and got a lot worse. I would take it slow for a couple days after feeling better if possible. PE is another thing that seems to be popping up with Delta for whatever reason and is something to watch out for. It almost got a friend 2 weeks into it recently after it should have been over.

He feels like a million bucks compared to a couple days ago.

Delta went through the house (presumably delta), positive tests, towards the end of August. Hit the GF hardest, like a bad flu, out of work two weeks, then lingering symptoms, etc. seemed like she was on her way to 100% recovery then my kid brings home a bad cold about a week and half ago. We all get the cold (symptoms wayyy worse than my bout with Covid, but that was really mild) but still just a relatively mean cold. We all test negative. GF still can’t shake it. Turns into wicked hacking, goes to doc, she’s got bronchitis, high blood pressure, some other Schitt. But, according to testing, no Covid. Moral of story - there’s still mean viruses going around, Covid or no covid. Colds, flu, whatever. Also possible the Covid beat her immune system down (and maybe mine as well) to where a common cold on the heals of it hit her more severely than it would have otherwise. I’m no doc, just my guess.

Mine was end of August as well, probably a good chance it was Delta.

The question posed is based on the idea that somebody knows they had COVID-19.

It’s a false premise.

My hunting buddy got it bad. Was mildly sick (cough, sniffles) for a few days. Started to get better, then it hammered him for three weeks. Thought we were going to lose him. Six weeks later, he is just regaining taste and smell.
Mine hit hard and fast, but I started Ivermectin right off the bat. Doc have me steroids for lung inflammation. Was better in 2 weeks, but not 100% strength for 2 months.
