    SO! Day 7 of my coronavirus adventure continues. This REALLY sucks but I’m trying to keep things in perspective.

    You've got it too? I tested positive last Friday when I realized my sense of taste/smell were completely gone. It sucks since I have only been out of my house to go to the grocery store and pick up an order at the bike shop. I suspect my husband (who has to go to his office 2 days a week) picked something up there and brought it home. People here are mostly OK about wearing masks, but there are definitely a few who won't comply or leave their noses hanging out.

    Luckily I don't have any other symptoms, but man, long term effects are unknown.

    Yep. Worst part so far is not being able to taste anything. Starting to really bum me out.

    Oh man, I feel you so much. Anyone who knows me knows I eat a lot and LOVE food. This Day 6 of not being able to taste, I am seriously bummed out. I've been pretty bleh the past 2 months but not being able to smell my food and just mindlessly chewing is pushing me off the cliff. I'm glad that there's some holiday time off coming up so I can lay on my couch feeling sorry for myself while binge watching LotR or something.

    My wife is making all these great meals and it’s killing me not to be able to taste any of it.

    Thanks a lot Legs! So good news, Legs has a cousin who got a job in your neck of the woods, so hopefully when this BS clears up we will have a great excuse for visiting.

    Thanks for all the dog compliments, I passed them along to Mr Max. He said "Mom, take me on a walk and give me infinite dog cookies". I like the pics of everyone's dogs as well, thanks for sharing.

    I am getting more whiffs of scents and a low level of taste, so I'm hoping those olfactory nerves are regenerating.

    Well I'm in good company! Tested positive yesterday for the 'rona. GF tested positive over the weekend so I knew I had it. We are both in healthcare,she is a rad tech and I work in a super busy ED as an RN, still play medic a day or 2 a month. And just picked up a side gig in West Virginias only female prison. Now thats an interesting job!

    I feel fine, more like cold/flu symptoms, some aches and pains. I'm using OTC meds for. And I thought the no smell no test thing was BS. Nope! can't taste a damn thing! Which in turn might be a good thing while I sit around for the next 2 weeks. It will keep me from eating anything and everything

    Make sure you guys keep your fluid intake up.

    Day 8 and I still can’t taste a thing. Which is the worst part. Otherwise I feel like I have a cold.

    Sounds like you’re having a blast. Did you watch the Mandalorian yet?
