The wife and I both got Covid. She lost her sense of smell this morning so we were having some fun having her try to smell stuff around the house.She says she canít smell a thing so I tried getting her to take a whiff of Dunlapís Hellfire. She refused to try it. Iím praying none of you guys get covid. Iím not trying to make light of Covid, rather make the best of crappy situation. But I am curious is the loss of smell skunk proof?

My brother felt bad for a couple days then early one morning he started his coffee. 10 minutes later he came back to see what went wrong because he couldnít smell it. Yep coffee is made!! Opened up the Folgers coffee can and stuck his nose in it..Uhhh nothing!! He has a good nose so he figures he had the COVID bug

Never lost our sense of smell, but did lose our sense of taste for awhile. All in all it certainly didnt live up to everything Ive heard about it. No worse than a mild cold was our experience.

I had covid, ordered some gusto. When it came in the mail it was in a plastic bag wrapped in another resealable bag wrapped in plastic wrap and newspaper. I knew it had to be strong but I couldn't smell a thing I had my 8 year old tell me it was strong. 2 weeks later got my smell back and it isn't as bad as he made it out to be, but it's strong a little goes a long ways.

Absolute most positive way to tell if you have the Covid, without going to take a test or expending the time to a doctor and expense is knowing you have a loss of smell and or taste or both.

You can just this symptom as well as others, however taste and smell loss generally does not show up until well infected, best be knowing who your around or been around a while if you suddenly loose one or both to make others be aware.

According to the CDC the most suffering the greatest reaction of the virus are immune compromised already, but that does not mean that it can take normal immune responsive people down as well.

You can also be infected with out suffering any loss of taste or smell.

We have to take this test every two weeks at my work, company requires it, first question they always ask is about your sense of smell or taste being gone, I've been through 4 tests and have another next week, sure don't see it as infectious as is being said !

For you folks that are having fun with this, my wife's sister died from the covid virus Wed evening. She was about the most healthy 82 year old in America and she was gone in one week! No meds at all, none. Zipped around country driving herself everywhere in all weather. Somehow got exposed and blown away!

Didnít mean any disrespect with this thread as stated on the first post. My condolences to you and youíre family. We just finished a road trip with my inlaws who are both high risk and sounds like at least my father inlaw got it. My family is not out of the weeds yet. I am aware of the severity and damage this can cause. It just surprised us when my wife said she couldnít smell anything, and I was just really curious as to wether covid could keep a guy from smelling skunk, being that she canít smell anything else.. If I had lost my smell youíre dang right Iíd shove my nose in a bottle of skunk essence, just to find out. I canít handle negativity and thereís a lot of it out there. Just trying to learn something and maybe put a smile on someoneís face.

My wife tested positive for it, pretty sure I had it as well. Lost taste and smell for a little while, but I don't have much of a sense of either anyway I'm told, so I didn't really notice. Did have a little chest congestion for a couple days and was a bit tired feeling, but only dealt with those symptoms for about a week. Neither of us suffered much physically. The quarantine really messed with my wife's head though. She lost a lot of sleep worried about all the what if's for her own kids and her students and their families.

One of the guys I coached years is ago is now about 40 and has been in and out of the hospital with covid for the last 3 months or so; he just can't seem to get it whipped. Seems like most people breeze through it pretty good, but when it gets ahold of some people it wipes them out.

I don't believe anyone on this thread is having "fun" with covid. Just expressing their own experiences

Covid has, regardless of our political or religious ties, exposed everyone to a continuous story of subjects we don't really like or want to think about much; threat of illness or death. The facts are scattered it seems yet everyone has an opinion on this disease medicine has labeled as Covid-19.

Americans don't talk about death much. We don't like it much because we captain our own ships and death doesn't really care about captains.

Recently a couple of us were ministering to an older fella and I asked him why he thought he was grieving so long about the passing of his loved one from Covid?
His answer was sincere, candid and honest. He said, "Death is the end. That's it. Done. There's nothing I can do about it and there's nothing I could do to stop it. I'm not very good with the things I can't control. My father, who fought for all of us in WWII, always told me to get it out, figure it out, and then work it out. I did that all my life until my wife got sick. There's nothing to figure out. Period. It just happens. You live and then you die I guess."

Americans, unlike many cultures worldwide, don't face death often because we are so blessed in so many areas.
One thing for sure, Covid has made some more reflective about life.

Blessings,
Mark

Mark June, you are correct. Americans or maybe its the West in general, don't know really how to talk or deal with death. Perhaps, as you say, its comes from our independent streak that we want to be n control, and yet in death we ultimately aren't in control. Or maybe it comes that in the West we have been given the insight to what death truly means in a spiritual sense and we still want to rebel. even a lot of believers in Christianity. And because we don't like or are even able to talk about death, we have a hard time scaling it into a context of the greater society. The USA has gone to war twice in the past 80 years for single attacks that left 3,000 Americans dead (Pearl Harbor and 9/11) in a country of over a 100 million (1941) and nearly 285 million (2001). I'm not saying those wars weren't justified in being waged, only that those initial 3,000 American dead was only the beginning of both American and our enemy deaths that were to come. Maybe the real reason why those wars were prosecuted wasn't because of the initial dead Americans but because both of the attacks were direct assaults on American culture and that couldn't be left unresponded to or "deals" made to appease our enemies.

In regards to covid, the following may seem extremely cold and uncaring, and I mean no disrespect to cohunt or anyone else who has lost a loved one to the disease. And I take full responsibility in being so blunt to "scale" covid deaths, but I work with numbers, statistics, data, and numbers have no soul, no emotion so let me put into context of how the coivd situation shows how we can't really scale death wel in this countryl. In the 8 months of covid in the US, I have never heard anyone, not even on a show such as Tucker Carlson, ask "well how many people die a year in the USA?" or a sub-set of that, "how many Americans die in a typical month in the past few years?" To me, these should be fairly known answers by now, but because we can't talk about death well as a society, no one seems to ask them. Americans know almost nothing about national "vital statistics" (how large is the population? how many births are there a year?, how many deaths are there a year?, etc). The overall national population, or at least a good guess at it, might be fairly common to know (how many American know we are the 3rd most populated country in the world?) but the next two questions I asked, almost none without looking it up (as I had to). In the past few years before 2020, the USA had about 2.8 million deaths out of a country of around 330 million people or less than 1% of the population a year. There is intra-annual variation that forms that 2.8 million deaths, but if the number is simply averaged over 12 months, it ends up being about 230,000 deaths a month. So not to belittle the impact that covid has on the individual scale, which can obviously be devastating, it has taken this disease 8 months to reach what we typically lose to death in a "average" month over the past few years. Why hasn't that been talked about or even mentioned...? To me, that seems rather stunning. But, as we circle back around, its because we as a society simply don't want to talk about death even though its coming for us all, and we all know it is.

I wish all of tman a restful and blessed Sunday...

Not sure what praying for the people that are no longer here accomplishes, better to pray for those they left behind.

Bringing my girlfriend back from Sterling Illinois tomorrow.
She is finishing up the estate of her 90 yr old mom.
Who went from active , loving life , and calling daily.
To deceased in less then a week from Covid.
Not many of us in here are spring chickens anymore.
We have all experienced death of close friends and family.
I'm trying to live everyday of our lives together as an adventure.
You just never know.

My thoughts and prayers to all affected.

I think the saddest thing was watching my girlfriend go thru the death of her mom over the phone on a daily manner.

I wonder why if they can suit up an employee in that hospital to nurse and serve her mom.
Why couldn't they suit up my girlfriend and let her squeeze hands and say goodbye?

Like previously stated , from others.
The inability to help is frustrating , depressing and Bitter.


The Dillrod has spoken !!

Mark you hit the head on the nail. You are born. You live and then you die. What people remember most of people is what you did in between and how you treated others. Covid has brought reality about life.

I am sure by next year there will be some members from this site that will die from the Covid. The worse part of this pandemic has just begun.
