RE: "I Have Coronavirus/Cold/Flu Symptoms" thread
My buddy had such a long-lasting strange cough. Took him over 6 weeks to get rid of december to january. I got it from him after weakening my system due to food poisoning. It took me over 3 weeks to get rid off. Vitamin C is limited with coughs that seem to have some connection to the lungs. It didn't get worse, but it took a while. My buddy had also a rough cough especially at night.

Seems that something like that is going around.

Roosh, is it just at night?

Are you sleeping with a window open?

How long have you been at your new location?

Any change in diet?

I'm not saying it's one thing or the other but it may be related to other things like allergies and food sensitivities.

Well you are in the target zone then for Influzenza A or Corona. Also, in the mountains the bounty of flowering plants makes for some intense allergies but that is also accompanied by very itchy eyes, an nose and a non stop running nose.

Day 3 of this cold*

Currently: runny nose and some slight head congestion. Scratchy cough is gone.No issues breathing.
Still doing vitamin c megadose with B vitamin and zinc
Very little human contact now that I'm choosing to not work in the office for the next couple of weeks and instead am working in/on the trucks at my terminal.

Don't know if it's CV but I'm not taking chances

For those of you who are displaying symptoms but need to get food, consider pickup services at places like Target or Walmart to not infect others. You order online and then pull up in your car. They drop off your groceries in the trunk. I will try it for Walmart. Otherwise, when you go to the store, wear gloves to not shed virus on packages (or sanitize hands before entry) and also try not to talk to staff so that you can limit emission from your mouth.

I'm learning that my food stock is not at all sufficient in terms of variety. I can survive technically on rice and lentils, but it would be difficult to eat that every day other than in a war-time scenario.

We do the walmart pickup, its great, they often are out of stock on items and will substitute a size larger to replace it, at no extra charge.

Corona pro tip - bring a tablet pen or gloves with you to the pick up as they give you an ipad/credit card reader to sign on that everyone else has handled.

Anyone tried Amazon food delivery straight to the Amazon Locker?

Minimum contact - not even delivery driver and you can pick it up late at night. I use those kind of delivery systems whenever I can becaouse a courier forces me to be somwhere at a specific time:

They even offer high quality frozen steaks and other goods.

If it's laying down you might be dealing with reflux. I tend to get indigestion at night as well.

I've found that most of my coughing is due to acid reflux. I've gotten used to taking a Pepcid AC as soon as I start coughing. I can recognize when other people cough due to this as well, now that I've become aware of it.

When I get a bad cold, apparently the acid stomach is riled up, or something, and it is far, far worse. About every 5-10 minutes, the acid boils up my esophagus. It irritates my throat, making me cough. It also goes down my wind pipe a little, making me have to cough up crud as my lungs try to flush it out. Finally, the irritation makes my sinuses dump suddenly, which causes post nasal drip and aggravates the cough even more. About the time I get the crud coughed up from my lungs, and get my sinuses blown out and settled down, and get my throat to stop tickling, the acids bubbles up the next time, and the cycle repeats.

I take Nexium or Previcid when this happens. It takes a few days for Nexium or Previcid to take effect, so you have to get some and start right away when you realize this pattern is happening. You can take Nexium and Pepcid AC together., as they have different methods of operation and do not have drug interactions. Important Note: On the Nexium package, they tell you to take one pill every 24 hours. However, if you look up the dosage information online, you can take up to two every 24 hours. This is what I do when this problem is happening. You are only supposed to have a max of two Pepcid AC per day.

Sleeping on an incline can help. Also, try to eat a modest dinner at least 3 hours before bedtime, so your stomach is more settled when you go to bed.

Finally, when I'm having bad coughs that keep me awake all night, I sleep with a cough drop in my mouth. I leave it up against the cheek, and don't roll it around in my mouth. It can last a long time like this, and will stay there while you go to sleep, soothing my throat just enough to prevent coughing.

I'm the tower of power, too sweet to be sour. I'm funky like a monkey. Sky's the limit and space is the place!

RE: "I Have Coronavirus/Cold/Flu Symptoms" thread
@Roosh - what helped me get over the cold faster was mixing 15 drops of clove oil into water and drinking that mixture once per day. It’s the worst flavor I’ve ever tasted, so I recommend using no more than a shot glass worth of water in the cup to make it drinkable in one gulp. Did that for about a week and the cold subsided, got the oil at Sprouts for 7 or 8 bucks.

3 weeks ago, I was very sick for a few days. I was shaky and fluctuating between hot and cold. I did not take my temperature the first day, but the second day I did not have a fever. On the third day I went back to work. I've had a very bad dry cough for the past 3 weeks.

Ever since the Vitamin C tablets have sold out at my local woolworths.

I feel like the iranian minister and wiping sweat off my forehead. I am not consuming as much C and it got worse today.

On the fourth day of my illness, I felt better so I only took 4,000mg or so of Vitamin C instead of 8,000mg. I did get noticeably worse the next day. Could be a coincidence, but I will take a full dose until I'm 100%. I'm taking 10-12,000 a day now.

RE: "I Have Coronavirus/Cold/Flu Symptoms" thread
I was digging in the garden last Thursday until I suddenly stopped, and leant on the shovel, with a fever out of nowhere. I went inside, too a drink and rested for about 30 minutes, then cooked dinner.

After I ate, I drove 25 minutes to go and pick up a chest freezer from my Stepfather. Between leaving home and arriving, I felt very ill, so loaded it quickly and returned home.

Just before dark I felt better, so went for my evening prayer up the hill near my house, but noticed I was very tired and a bit harder to make the ascent than usual.

The suddenness of this struck me as interesting, because there was no signs that I was unwell. I've had a constant increased fever ever since.

By Day 3, I figured something was up, and decided to self-isolate, since I match the described symptoms well, including some progressions I read online. I had a suspicion that some kind of societal chastisement was about to happen towards the end of January after the end of the bushfires, based on theological study and contemplation, so started stocking up, and accelerated a few weeks ago, when I heard about Wuhan. I am well-prepped enough now to remain at home from a few months and can support a few other people, if necessary. I even prepped for some people around me, a couple of weeks back, though most thought I was mad. So I'll stay here until Saturday next week. I only venture out before dawn to walk - very slowly - up the hill to practice contemplation as the sun rises for I need to watch for Him at the break of day: I never see anyone on these walks, so feel I'm not putting anyone at risk.

I decided not to attend daily mass because it's an old community, even though they removed the Holy Water from the fonts and stopped communion on the tongue the week before last. God can't contradict himself, so illness overrides any legalistic obligation to attend mass.

The problem is getting anyone around me to take the fact that I'm sick as any kind of threat: "It's just a flu, bro." Which means a friend came to say, despite my warnings. My stepfather turned up last night, despite my warnings. Even a Priest I've been working for turned up on the weekend, despite my warnings: "Well, you haven't travelled..."

The thing is, I'm sure I had this at the end of January / Early February. I chalked it up to lung issues from the bushfires. But this is it again, just worse. If this was spreading in Wuhan in December, why could I have already had it, given the size of the Asian population in my town and the fact that the Government is more interested in protecting the economy and the stock interests of the wealthy than a rapidly-aging population who number crunchers would see as an incredible financial social burden on the country?

I've also been drastically-isolated over the few weeks before this. My last social event was working a Rodeo at the start of February, after which, I had a very short amount of time to proofread and citation check a Priest's Dissertation, which meant 12+ hour days of reading the work and studying the Summa Theologicae and Catechism. I only left the house for adoration and morning mass at 5:50 am, and a quiet evening walk. I only went to the grocery store at 7am or after 9:30 at night, when barely anyone is there, and brought my own bags and even back then was being very careful to not touch anything unnecessarily and to use Isopropyl on my hands after. Yet, I'm still sick...

Lung pain was making itself evident by Day 4. I dug my humidifier out of the shed by Day 5, and found it makes sleeping easier, because it's a rough night with my chest hurting so much. I'm growing increasingly-tired, so just laying around, resting, as much as possible.

It's now Day 7. Slight runny nose down my throat. Occasional dry cough. Based on the progression, the next few days are the danger area for hospitalization. Whilst my lungs are scratchy, I suspect a lot of pain in the chest is from compensatory muscle movement, and a bit of reflux. In the past, I've had pleurisy, pneumonia (twice) and legionella, and this, whilst unpleasant and painful, doesn't resemble that 'sucking air through a wet sock' feeling of the latter two. I'm also somewhat mortified to physical pain due to the dark night of the senses, so keep forgetting to take any pain management, instead 'offering it up'. This is a known thing with Catholics, since my Sister returned to Church last year, I was amazed to see her go through a tooth nerve infection and root canal with a (admittedly-tired) smile. She's learnt to suffer well. Maybe I should drop something on this for the Catholics in another thread.

Understand that I type all this as someone whose immune system was damaged in my 20's by adult chicken pox, meaning, whilst I'm healthy most of the time, it's very hard for me to fight off bacterial and viral infections, and there are some antibiotics I'm already resistant to, such as Amoxycillian. I should be a good canary in the coal mine.

I'll keep you posted over the next few days as to what happens. I can recommend buying a cheap Pulse Oxymetre online to measure your Sp02 levels: if it dips below 90%, you'll need medical care. I haven't bothered up until now, because all they'll tell me to do is what I've been doing.

I'm not really scared as I accept His will. I'm more scared for those around me I love who haven't accepted Christ, and even those who hate Him. I also had the grace of receiving the Anointing of the Sick last Tuesday before I showed any symptoms, one regular effect of which is peace and calm acceptance in the face of sickness and death. I also was, well, warned by God something was coming after January that could be misread as bad, and to be feared, but was to accept as his merciful love, which seems to be the latest in the long line of 'themes' I've been graced with since 2015. 2020 is 'Do not be afraid'. Suffer well, and it becomes sanctifying grace for yourself and others.

Godspeed, all.

RE: "I Have Coronavirus/Cold/Flu Symptoms" thread
About one month ago, it got wickedly cold in Las Vegas where I live. It lasted for around two days, with a strong desert wind blowing through. I remember telling my wife, “That was the coldest day I have felt here in a long time.”

The next day I had a bit of a wet cough (phlegm). There was no fever or shortness of breath. I still had plenty of energy and was still doing an hour of cardio a day at the gym.

I pounded garlic and lemon juice like I normally do in such situation. Each day I got better. So the bug followed the general trajectory I see with whenever I catch a little cold/cough.

Then, around a week later, I torched my throat with my CPAP machine (I have sleep apnea). The dry weather can play havoc with me in this regard, and I frequently will wake up with a very dry throat. This delayed my recovery, and it took me an extra week to lose the phlegm.

Now I am 100%. That being said, with the paranoia that’s going around, there is always a bit of doubt in the back of one’s head. I imagine that when the hullabaloo dies down, I will go get checked just to be on the safe side.

Quote:I'll keep you posted over the next few days as to what happens. I can recommend buying a cheap Pulse Oxymetre online to measure your Sp02 levels: if it dips below 90%, you'll need medical care. I haven't bothered up until now, because all they'll tell me to do is what I've been doing.

You will probably need medical care before that (lower than 94%) but it would depend on the person.

From what I read, Day 7-10 is crucial. That is when maybe people require hospitalization (after a period of steady decline).

I will pray for you. I hope other members do as well. Keep us posted.

@Roosh

That's good to hear. Today however since I suggested the Vitamin C cure to my family my dad got a hold of strong vitamin C tablets. The kind that doesnt dissolve in water.

Hope that will help my condition.

Likewise may God bring you victory over this illness.

May your time on earth be a little longer also. To do more for God.

Yeah, also different if you're a smoker, or have existing lung issues.

Assuming I survive, I expect to lose three people out of this:

- my stepfather, (morbidly-obese)
- my brother-in-law, (heart issues)
- my friend Bill, (emphysema)

These three were the most resistant to my warnings. It's odd, they're all very aware of how incompetent the government is in the simplest issues, but somehow think when it comes to matter of health, they'll suddenly be competent. And this is just after living through the bushfire season, and me telling Bill that the women whom shuffle around uselessly pushing paper at Centrelink and can't get the computer to retrieve the info they need are no different in the Health System.

I love my Stepfather, but when he showed up yesterday, despite my warnings, he complained about their being no sugar at the supermarket. "Really?" he paused. "Really?" Then he virtue signalled about people being racist towards Asians.

A while back, when I was shown the realization that people cast themselves into hell when they finally understand how God is, and how far they are from him, and see him as the Stern Judge waiting to punish instead of the Merciful Father waiting to love. So, rather than the gradual little shocks of Him showing you who you really are after the First Conversion, it happens all at once. (It's been a humiliating couple of years, which is good, because I'm no longer under any delusion that 'I'm a good person'. Which is great - I know I need God).

I then thought about the people I love who are very far from God, despite my sacrifices and sufferings for them, but I trust in his mercy. Then I did ask him that I die before all of them, so I can be there at their final judgement, to help them suffer through that brutal shock, to challenge the voice of the demons condemning them - after being delivered I have nothing but contempt for their manipulation - and to speak of the truth of his mercy. Yeah, God doesn't need me, no more than he needs St Therese to 'rain down roses from heaven' but it couldn't hurt to spend my heaven serving those in deep pain who come after me, for St Catherine of Sienna was shown by God that everyone - even those in mortal sin - is given a final chance to choose him. Meaning, if I do die before them, he's answered my request. As such, I accept whatever comes.

This might sound like presumption, but God doesn't grace you with unachieveable desires, and, who better to have mercy for the Sinner than one who has so greatly sinned as to serve a demon and sees the manipulation of wounds involved. We're all victims. Instead of assuming someone is damned, reach out in love, and forgive any negative responses, because you can't predict how one little act of love might impact them, years down the road.

There was a video a while back of a drag queen saying he wanted to march up God and ask him why "He made him like this". Instead of mocking him, I wish someone had shown him compassion and explained to him that God didn't. That God love him, and that God was capable of showing him the lies that have led him to where he is, if he would let Him do it.

I'm serious about this being the Passion of the Boomers. Forgive them, and show them compassion and care. They're going to need it. Not because you will be forgiven and rewarded, but because you become the Imitation of Christ.

I'll update each morning until this passes. If I vanish, I'm in hospital.

You should go get tested Roosh.
