I am not worried or concerned about the Corona virus. Most people survive the virus without being in the hospital,more people survive the Corona virus than die from it. The media is making it sound much worse than it really is.

Hi, I have to say I'm doing ok with all this...
I was really scared at first and was freaking out every time the news came on. I don't watch much of it now .. just a quick check to see where we stand .. and that is it ..
My worst fear was to bring it home to family. Because I work for Amazon in a sort center, and all I can say is we all did what we could.. these people I work with are my friends ... people I care about, we made a a pleage to each other to keep away.
We have 15 or so cases in my building.. but my family and I are a safe. And I pray this ends soon so I can see my mother and hug her ...

As an MS patient, I'm pretty well used to staying inside most of every day, so the only thing that I am really missing is going to church. Only other things I do normally are the many doctors appointments for my MS, picking up grocery orders, and church - so the "stay in" policy isn't much different for me.

In Oregon we're still on I'd like to call it shelter-in-place I don't feel like I'm a prisoner on lockdown even though my mental illness makes me feel like my brain is on lockdown all the time I guess my own little prison. But I just know I'm tired of this Coronavirus and if it keeps up I'm going to have to build an underground bunker made out of nothing but toilet paper!

My experiences with Covid 19 pandemic so far has been negative and positive. I had a cough that would not stop, called our local ER and asked where we should go to be tested for Covid 19. I spoke to a person, and this person transferred me to another number which no one answered. After waiting for 15-20 minutes on hold, I hung up and said "forget that." I made myself a hot drink, put 2 tablespoons of vodka in it, and sipped it slowly. I had read Covid-19 goes to the tonsils first, then to the lungs. I continued this treatment once or twice a day, and my tonsils went back to normal size and my cough became sporadic, then finally cleared up. During this time I quarantined at home and made face masks for my son and myself to wear. I suppose I might have been exposed to Covid-19 when I was at a regularly scheduled doctor's appointment. While I was in the waiting area, three women came in and sat down in the waiting area. They mentioned they were all three from New York. My cough started several days later. So, possibly I had Covid-19 but I do not know. I still have not been tested, but I did wear a mask any time I had to be near other people. I should mention I pray the rosary every day and watch mass online. I believe God was watching over my son and myself. When tests are finally available in our area, I will go for a test to see if I have antibodies for Covid-19. I would suggest drinking hot drinks with a little vodka, bourbon, or rum if you start to cough. Alcohol does kill this virus, and this is the only way I knew of to take alcohol internally.
