COVID - NOT A CASE OF THE FLU
There are many doubters out there who say, "COVID IS JUST LIKE THE FLU". I am here to tell you that if you had it as bad as I did, you will know this is a pile of shit!.
If you are lucky enough to get it mildly then yes it can feel like the flu. However, if you are one of the ones who are more suceptible to getting it worse then it is seriously not like the flu. It is so much worse. I have had the flu and I have had COVID-19 badly and I can say, it is not like the flu.
When I had it it came on quickly. I just started coughing and I measured my tempreture and it was above the range their telling you to report. I called the 111 line and they told me I was symptomatic. I could hardly do anything. Just walking to the phone I was winded. If you saw my flat, it is not that big. Just talking made me feel like I would pass out. I was sleeping for 15 hours at a time. This is nothing like the flu. I was so bad that the doctor that was calling me every day said if I had not got substatially better I would be in the hospital.
Because I know how susceptible I have to risk assess everything I do. Unless urgent I cant go to the store because I have to wear my face mask door to door. I cant go out in the heat because having to wear a face mask door to door can risk me getting heat stroke. I am doing everything in my power to be responsible for this. It is important that everyone does their part. It is not something that some people can fake it is important that we all do our part. Please start doing things that helps instead of hurting.
