I got the Covids

I recently got tested for Covid-19, because I'm a truck driver.

I came up positive.

Instead of picking up a load of steel in AZ and heading to ID and WA to deliver it, my ass is stuck at home in quarantine until 01/01.

I have no symptoms--none whatsoever.

Therefore, this must be a hoax.

Damn weird virus seems to affect certain conditions and blood types, That’s good you don’t have any symptoms, are you O blood type ?

Re: I got the Covids

Wow, get better man, but at least you are asymptomatic, the symptoms are no joke, my aunt and uncle both got it both in '80's, he had no symptoms either, she was in the hospital a week, but both have recovered, you will too, at least you know and can wait it out and are not infecting others.

Re: I got the Covids

Could be a false positive test. It happens.

Re: I got the Covids

It does, but not often, stay quarantined.

That's the first thing I thought. The problem is that no one will re-test me if I've tested positive, unless I lie, which I am not willing to do.

My research tells me the test tends to err more on the side of a false negative.

I look at it as a 10 day vacation from work and humans. It's not as though I really came in contact with that many people, anyway. Since I had been prepared for a 5-week run, I have plenty of food, and my friends have brought me other things I need.

Sure would like to go to the gym (during slow hours, cautiously, and not using the locker room, as is my MO), or take a bicycle ride without worrying about crossing paths with others, but it's just 10 days.

The crazy thing is that if I don't get symptoms, and if I hadn't have tested, I'd have never known I (allegedly) have it. I wonder how many people pass this around exactly like this?

I'm not surprised. I drive a truck. I've been to 25 states in the last 3 months. Though not as often as I'd like, I take showers in truck stops and truck terminals. I use the restrooms at rest areas (though i am more inclined to pee next to my truck with zero fucks given).

One can be careful AF, wearing a mask, washing hands, sanitizing, social-distancing, etc., but if it's gonna getcha, it will getcha.

Super-grateful I have no symptoms (thus far, fingers crossed).

It's funny-not funny to me seeing Covid culture out on the road amongst other truckers, shippers and receivers, and the general public. It is vastly different from different segments of the population, and it varies from state to state.

For example, the Indians--especially the Sikhs, the Africans, the Iraqis, and to a lesser degree, the eastern Europeans, mostly all wear masks. The US-born truckers rarely do. I've also noticed that most of the US-born truckers lean to the right politically, so this theory is consistent with that of the general population.

In California, people wear masks outside and alone, and while driving alone in their cars. I've had more pick-ups and deliveries there where I can't enter the office (which I prefer, anyway), and where they have taken my temperature. Conversely, states such as Texas, and sparsely-populated states, such as Montana, Wyoming, and the Dakotas, seem to care less. I have been in truck stops in the aforementioned states where I was the only one masked up (even though there was a sign on the door mandating them).

Ironically, one of my last pick-ups before I went home and subsequently got tested was in Beaumont, CA, where I had my temperature taken before I entered the procurement yard to pick up a loaded trailer. I was fine. (edited)

American’s are a bunch of fools. Something so simple as a mask. I’ve got friends who’ve been irresponsible and gotten it whilst doing so. Meanwhile my lady has wiped asses and noses of positive patients, and through safe practices, she’s been fortunate and tested negative many times. So I can hear fools say masks don’t make a difference, but I’ve witnessed first hand that they absolutely do. Stubborn ass Uhmericans.

Re: I got the Covids

Good luck, I hope it doesn't get worse.

Nice to see you're taking it seriously, instead of jumping on the "it's just a flu," or "I got it and I'm just fine" bandwagon.

I mean, for most people, yeah, the symptoms aren't bad, and it's no big deal, but it'd suck to be the guy who laughs it off and infects someone who ends up really suffering. Or dead.

Merry Xmas.

Re: I got the Covids

Get better, if you really have it. Who really knows, because the test is so overly sensitive & inaccurate. I hope you don’t have complications.

I’ve had several friends & acquaintances all across the age spectrum come down with it. All recovered well, with only mild symptoms. Everyone I personally know that has had it we’re avid mask wearers, too. So masks don’t really work that great.

Best of luck I hope you recover fast if you do have it.

Again seth you're a fucking idiot. No, the pcr gets are extremely accurate, the rapid antigen tests are the ones prone to false negatives. Masks aren't to protect the wearer, unless they are n95 rated, they are to limit the transmission of an infected wearer.

Mask just stops you infecting others by sneezes and coughs

Does not stop you from getting it. Wash your hands...

Re: I got the Covids

Most people will have mild symtoms or none,but if you are one of the unlucky ones that dont you might die or suffer pemanent damage,I think we all will feel better when they get it somewhat under control. The vaccene hopfully will slow things down,I think even if you are careful,there is a good chance you or someone you know will get it. I wish you the best and that you have mild symtoms,i know a few people that have died from it alone,without their realtives being there one last time.

I had the flu in early February... my 3 year old also had it at the same time. He tested positive for flu b but they never tested me. This was right before Covid really went into full force. Ive wondered if it was actually covid, but perhaps i really did just have the flu. This pandemic killed my grandpa about 2-3 months ago and nearly killed my Uncle this past week. He was released from the hospital yesterday after spending like 6 days in the ICU.

Anywho glad to hear your doing alright with it, i hope it stays mild. Get better and enjoy the time off! Catch up on some good shows or hobbies around the house!

Your super dumb, my lady would’ve already contracted it if your statement was anywhere close to accurate. You should have your brain checked out.

Re: I got the Covids

What she doesn't wash your hands?

Re: I got the Covids

I wouldn’t argue against the obvious benefits of washing hands or wearing a mask when it comes to decreasing the spread of airborne pathogens. Your brain’s fuct, sucks for you. Your mentality is in the minority for a good reason.

If your breath isn’t very fresh, swipe the inside of your mask with your favorite flavored chap stick.

I discovered this by accident when my candy cane flavored chap stick melted out a little in my pocket.

At first it reminded me of when my grandmother used to shove vicks vapor rub up my nose holes. It makes wearing a mask a little more tolerable.

Re: I got the Covids

Quote Kevil:` One can be careful ..., wearing a mask, washing hands, sanitizing, social-distancing, etc., but if it's gonna getcha, it will getcha.'

Making my point? I wear a mask, when indoors with others. Keep hand sanitizer,etc.

I guess we should be glad only one out of a thousand in USA has died of the China virus.
