How are YOU doing?


Recommended Posts

During this period of time I’ve been working from home and I adopted a few healthy routines like eating well, use my time to improve my GIGs and skills and develop my marketing strategy for the next few months.

If you can simply stay home and not come into contact with anyone you can learn to live a hermit’s life and work on being healthy, and improving your gigs. Of course there is always a need at some time to venture outside, or do errands that involve people contact.

Even if you live the Hermit life, you aren’t safe. I got diagnosed with Corona yesterday even though I haven’t left home in weeks. And it absolutely sucks.

@ssj1236 Oh Jim sorry to hear that! I’m concerned about you. Please keep us updated. Maybe a family member or visitor to your home brought it in? Anyway hoping it goes away and you get well very fast.

Who are all these people I see on the news out and about as if the virus doesn’t exist? How, why are they out there without any sort of protection or distancing?

That’s probably what happened so now I’m locked in a room. Luckily, the fever went away today but took my sense of smell and taste with it which is driving me up the literal wall but other than that I’m doing well.

You sound like it’s going to be very mild. Lucky you got tested! Did you have symptoms that made you do that? Was it at a clinic? I guess the fever made you get the test. Scary. I read that happens to everyone, losing the sense of smell and taste but it comes back.

Yep, luckily they are mild. I had a fever and a dry cough that weren’t going away so I called a doctor and he was pretty much certain it’s Covid.

Unfortunately, my mom caught it too and it’s hitting her a bit harder. So just be careful. If you think someone has it in your family then get them tested and quarantine them unless you want it to spread.

I also want to point out for anyone who reads this that there are what they call “super spreaders” which are people without any symptoms who have it and spread it around easily to everyone they come into any sort of contact with.

One such person with no symptoms gave it to 32 people.

I was talking to someone I know who says he “doesn’t believe in wearing a mask” yet he it out running around as if it’s not even in existence and has a wife and daughter. It’s one thing to not care about your own health but this is not just about that. It’s about anyone around you that you might infect.

Yeh we should be seeing the major outbreaks begin in about a week or two. The protests everywhere here are like pouring gasoline on a fire. It takes that long of an incubation period to start having symptoms. I’m upset about what happened here too but to go out in a huge crowd of chanting people for hours, packed together…

Nah, after the protests, the next pressing crisis will be food shortages, economic Armageddon and, lots of civil unrest.

You have the entire Western world having just willingly closed shop and stayed home for several weeks, only to have lockdowns be proven completely pointless by mass protests undoing any benefit. That is going to upset a lot of people and there is no more money in the kitty to keep paying people’s bills.

I’m pretty sure that in a couple of months, people will be more concerned about catching something for dinner than they will be Covid-19.

On the upside, though. all them, protesters are getting lots of vitamin D. 😉

It’s gonna take a week or so for the symptoms to pop-up for the people out in the streets and after that, we’re probably looking at mass lockdowns around the world again.

Nope, most major protests start after the sun goes down.

We have middle class families lined up for hours waiting for free food now. We have this week a 13% unemployment rate.

It’s hitting our Hispanic and African American populations disproportionately hard.

That means you don’t have middle class families anymore.

People who usually make $40,000 to $60,000 per year are suddenly going without food, unable to pay rent.

I saw in Las Vegas they have a huge parking lot with big squares drawn on it each at a distance apart from the others and people laying down on a blanket on the pavement. That is their new home.

Las Vegas gets up to 110 degrees F. in the summer.

They don’t look 6 feet apart to me.

So, you didn’t take a test?

My older sister, who lives in France, is in a hospital there since several weeks. Doctors thought that was COVID19 due a chronic cough she has, but the bad news was that her breast cancer was returned after 2 years, and now she is starting chemo therapy again in the next weeks.

COVID19 is not so dangerous as cancer. I understand deaths, but the damage of cancer is increasing every day.

I’m sorry for your sisters situation. However, she might be lucky if France is still treating oncology patients. In Malta and lots of other countries, most cancer screening and treatment is pretty much on hold at the moment. I have a friend with lung cancer who hasn’t been to the hospital in weeks.

COVID19 is not so dangerous as cancer.

More people have died in building accidents on Malta this year than they have of COVID. However, the constriction industry is the only industry that has been allowed to continue operating as normal throughout the pandemic. Apparently, the cost to the economy would be to great if they ceased operations.

Then you have the suicide rate in the U.S. In some states, they have already recorded more suicides this year than during the entirety on 2019. Sadly, most people aren’t interested in looking at the bigger picture. 😦

I hope your sister recovers and that you can get to see her soon. 🤞

I hope we all be better soon!

Hi, I agree with you that some of these emails can be annoying at times because we personally might not know what this company is about and we also might not be so close to it but it is nice to know what other companies are doing. It makes you feel thta you aren’t alone in these hard times. It’s my opinion after all

COVID-19. Reached out to Bangladesh as well. Already one people died.so every one so panic now. Over all we are not a rich country and for it our country shut down for 17 days. So many people have no job they only do physical jobs like farmer, worker, driver etc. Then don’t have job until next 17 days don’t know how they manage their food because they earn money by doing work each day. So I think COVID-19 is a big problem for Bangladesh. Let’s see what happens next. Pray for the Bangladesh guys.

Yes!!

Happy BD Freelancing:)

Well, since I haven’t been on the forum in a LONG time except to occasionally help mod, why not the COVID thread? Hello all. I’m doing okay. Hope everyone out there is as well as possible and staying safe!

Hello, Maddie! I have missed you and it is so wonderful to hear from you again. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I have thought of you so many times.

Hope everyone out there is as well as possible and staying safe!

We are trying to be as safe as possible and I feel lucky to live in one of the states where COVID is not as prevalent.

OMG, am I seeing things? 👀 Is this really you… 😲 It’s so nice to see you, Maddie. ♥️ I’ve been wondering how you are doing and if I’ll ever see you around again. I’m doing OK, so much has happened since we’ve last spoken. I hope you, your partner and everyone is doing fine.

Missed you, Lady! 🌹
