    If I read it right, @hampstor sister's kidneys are broken as a result of having Covid. She can no longer drink alcohol.

    idk about you, but I wouldn't wanna live that way.

    I know 5 people who have tested positive, all had fairly minor symptoms.
    One lost their taste/ smell, another said it felt like a bad cold.

    I also indirectly know 3 people who have committed suicide and one more who was (thankfully) unsuccessful, all since March 2020.
    Root cause in all 4 situations were bankruptcies/ lay offs, all left families behind.

    Take care of each other out there.

    My cousin in Florida had it, both her and her husband (30's) were knocked out pretty bad for a week, all recovered.
    Another cousin (40) here had it last month, with her 2 kids and partner. Kid's were almost asymptomatic and the adults symptoms were very minor and only lasted a few days.
    Friend's grandma died in a LTC in Edmonton (in her 90's).

    I’m positive the girlfriend and I had it in February before it was mainstream... kicked out asses. Our vp/ his wife had it and said it was nothing more than a sore throat / sniffles... I think the increased amounts of work hangovers has been the worst part for me so far

    I think I misspoke on an earlier comment about this but I know two people in their 50's, zero symptoms/illness experienced. Two people in their 30's, nothing more than fatigue and mild cold symptoms 2/3 days, and one person in his 30's very sick for 10 days but full recover so far as he is aware.

    My sister living in the UK had it back in March. It knocked her down pretty hard, couldn't get out of bed for days, and she should've been hospitalized. Her recovery was rough - she ended up with an enlarged heart, and kidney damage. For the first bit, she could barely walk a block before just being exhausted. Her kidney damage was so bad that she couldn't even have a glass of wine. 9 Months later, she's doing much better and mostly back to normal. She's still no alcohol though because of her kidney damage - not entirely sure when / if that will recover. She's ~30 years old, very fit and healthy (eats well, regular worksouts), and mild asthma (carries an inhaler, doesn't regularly use it).

    Her husband, almost no symptoms. Only symptom was a few sores in his mouth strangely enough.
    Female and no wine... thats pretty serious. Hope she gets better.
    My nephews girlfriend has it. She was ok but lost her taste.

    Just to add, a few people I know have non covid medical issues. The covid situation is affecting thier treatment, surgery, post care etc.

    I'm mildly disappointed that no one has asked for pics of my sister yet, since I can now preemptively say no to any such request.

    I know 2 people that got covid.
    First is a guy in his early 60's, works retail, got it in May. He thought it was allergies and it never went past his sinuses... Very mild, full recovery.
    The second ended up getting it bad in November and died in 8 days. He was all over the Edmonton news if you want to see his story.

    I'll tell you, having a media circus about a friend while trying to grieve really messes up the grieving process.

    Wife had it. Basic flu symptoms for a week. I can only assume I had it as we live together and I took zero precautions to not get catch it from her. I never had a single symptom, but obviously I can't say for sure if I even had it or not, I never had a reason to get tested.

    Nope

    I recall having some type of coronavirus about 5 years ago, thought I was dying, laid out for a solid 3 days, seriously worst three days of my life, I survived.

    And BTW guys, be careful out there. I've just been made aware of a new covid side effect through the rep system. Turns out your wife getting covid makes you retarded.

    Laughing at retards isn't cool, anymore. True story! The only cool things now are beer that tastes like a hobo's puke and eating a thing that was nothing more than a garnish for several decades - kale!

    Sorry to hear.
    Extra sucks to hear about these things when it is related to job loss, etc.

    That is terrible man, your year has been brutal. As always, I’m sure there are many on here willing to help in any way if you need anything.

    My uncle died of it in a quebec care home, outside of that we have only had some “hey I got a call from work, test results pending” calls from friends but no confirmed cases. The wife and I were sick in early March, her coworker came back sick after travelling and came into the office. We were both quite sick, but no loss of taste or smell that I could remember. I did struggle to get back into running, but that could have also been the sedentary lifestyle for months on end, as keeping at it for my pace and distance back in point.

    2 coworkers (+ one of their wives and + one sister), my boss, and my boss' wife have now all had it or have it currently. Everyone is either fine or still recovering (but OK). For them, it was like a bad cold/flu that lingered a bit longer than normal. One lost their smell, another lost their taste, but only temporary. None of them are older than 55 though.
