The blue states and cities aren’t really doing great with this stuff either. They may not be publicly strident about it but no one gives a shit. MA is doing terribly. Philly is doing terribly. California is doing terribly.
So, I’m still sick. It’s weird-I’ve never developed severe symptoms, but my nausea hasn’t abated at all in nearly two weeks. I can’t really eat more than a few things without feeling terrible. On one hand I know that I’m lucky to have avoided severe illness. On the other hand, it’s been emotionally draining how long this has gone on and not knowing if it’s ever going to end.
My wife is doing better. The Spawn tested negative twice and is negative for antibodies. So she isn’t patient zero and didn’t get it at the orthodontist.
We have no idea how we could have gotten this. The only time that anyone had any unmasked contact with a non-household member was when the Bride went into Whole Foods for two minutes wearing a KN95 mask to pick up a pre-order. The other alternative is that we got it off of a package/surface.
My wife is pretty much recovered thankfully.
I’ve had pretty persistent nausea and on and off muscle pain for about a week. It hasn’t been so bad in an of itself-I haven’t been bedridden. It’s just the general uncertainty about the disease’s course and the abrupt way that my mom died from it adds a lot of fear and uncertainty to the process. On average it is a fourteen day disease course with things improving around day ten. So hopefully I’ll start seeing some improvement around the end of this week.
BM sorry to hear about your ex. Fwiw, notwithstanding my current situation the household spread rate is like twenty percent so there may be a good chance your kid an you did not get it.
I just tested positive. I am currently feeling fine (other than terror and anxiety). PCR tests are super sensitive. so possible that I had COVID symptoms last week when I was feeling headachey and nauseous. Possible also that I just got it from the Bride and I am about to get sick. The future is full of exciting possibilities. We are waiting for results for the Spawn.
Get out. It will be better for both of you if you end things as soon as possible.
I want you to think ahead five years from now. What is the scenario that comes from staying together? She’s miserable in an opposite sex marriage and you’re feeling endlessly rejected by a partner that isn’t interested in you sexually? You live with a wife that has romantic partnerships with other people? There is no endgame where you live happily ever after together. There may be endgames where you both go off and have happy lives with other people. Rip off the band aid now and end your marriage.
Support her as a friend if you want but do not stay in this marriage. The fact that she figured this out now, and not ten years from now when you have kids together is a gift. Do not squander that gift. Get out.
I know that getting over her sounds scary, but you are 22. You have your whole life ahead of you. Do not squander more of it on this marriage.October 2, 2020 at 9:51 am in reply to: This whole Trump situation just gets worse and worse everyday #962820
Just a reminder that this is on Thursday night. If you are interested in participating and have not previously sent me your email, please email me at the address in the first post. Hope to see everyone on Thursday.
Bring your kangaroos if you have ’em.
All, since Thursday night seemed to work pretty well for everyone, I’m going to try to hold another Zoom at on Thursday September 10 at 9pm. If you’re interested in participating, please email me at Fyodor32768 at the gmail email service. I’ll automatically include everyone who emailed me last time.
It could be feasible by next April, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
