    I know I rely on Vanity Fair to supply me with my information. I think I will wait until it hits a legit medical journal instead of publishing cherry picked snippets.

    Haha. I signed up for that last night and started thinking the same thing. But then I emailed pretty much everyone I know to give them the link. I am still of the opinion that the sooner we get the vaccine into somebody, anybody, the better off we'll be.

    Echoing Swansong- there is no downside to getting tested. If yo are positive then you know and can let others know. You could also call the local COVID hotline. I know ours does a great job answering questions.

    Go get tested. Why wait?

    Curious of those who've gone through it, when do you make the decision to get tested? Were you in severe discomfort, or just suspicious when feeling not so great?

    I'm having some mild symptoms, either just a GI infection, or it could be COVID-19, when reading the list on the CDC's site. There are just so many symptoms that it's tough to be comfortable with a decision one way or the other.

    I'm here on Earth with two feet on terra firma. I'm guessing your head is planted in Uranus.
    When the peaks and troughs of those zig-zagging lines are higher than the peaks and troughs of earlier in the graph, that’s an upward trajectory. It’s scary to face reality, but there you have it.

    Only on this thread, in this forum, would a data-driven graph be considered "opinion".

    Thanks for the amazing insight, Karen ...
    The place to act like an a55hole and insult people is on the thread for discussion. I know most of the people put you on ignore in there but don't pollute this thread with your nastiness.
    This is supposed be a thread to find resources to get help etc.

    I expect all these very dead people to resurrect right after the election and it will magically go away. That would be good because then the handful of people I know who have died, the more than handful of people I know who got really sick and the others who got sick but have not managed to fully recover will miraculously feel better and best of all maybe the truly stupid people will stop posting foolish things and go back to doing what ever it is they usually do (which one can tell is not epidemiology, medicine, or anything to do with healthcare).
