T Baggins: Mikey1969: ...So m-a-y-b-e we had a breakout in those two offices and I did get sick. I don't know...

I would think an antibody test, to see if you seem to have had COVID in the past, would be worth getting, next time you're at a doctor's office.


like I posted above, a negative ab test won't mean that the person didn't have COVID-19.

backhand.slap.of.reason: Long Covid is super rare.  Only 1 out of every 5 PCR confirmed cases develops Long Covid symptoms


1 out of 5 is super rare?
Also, citation needed.
Also, 1 out of 5 is a weird way to say 78%.

Mikey1969: Stibium: Myself and science would be very interested in the list of 50 symptoms.

I've had so much shiat happen this spring/summer that I'm starting to wonder about this as well...


Mikey, the unexplained weight loss plus night sweats plus rash has me immediately concerned for lymphoma. Hoping your doctors have or will investigate for this.

I think that's on the list. It's something he mentioned for sure, if it isn't in the tests he's scheduled, it's something that would be upcoming.

Mikey1969: Oh, and a little more weird backstory on the issues listed up above.

February was a hell month for our IT folks in our HQ in DC. For almost the whole month, someone on our team (about 15 people there) was sick, one after the other, and all missing multiple days, with some struggling in to work, and then going home an hour or two in. With that many people, there would only be 3 or 4 who would have stayed home more than one day, we're workaholics when we're sick, usually.

Then our Phoenix office, pretty much the same story for about 2 weeks. Small office, only around 20 employees there. They were sick so much that my buddy from our Georgia office said "I think they have the plague in Phoenix." as a joke.

I, OTOH, went to bed every night in February sure that I wasn't going to be able to get up the next day, but I bulled my way through. I had to audit 7-800 pieces of equipment that had never been done before, I had to be 75% done before I could travel to our remote office, and since I had to book that a month out, there wasn't wiggle room.

Anyway, I never actually got sick. And these different locations matter because our company had extensive travel, so I can guarantee that people came from DC to our office in that month. And then that remote office I visited? Phoenix, a week after the last person called in. So m-a-y-b-e we had a breakout in those two offices and I did get sick. I don't know...

So it's been a little bit weirder year for me than some... 😁


Has your group reconsidered their culture of working while sick? It sounds you'd be more productive overall if people stayed home if they're ill instead of trying to tough it out and getting others sick.

It would be great if they still got paid while they're sick. Or if they weren't judged on job performance because they were sick.

It's pretty sick the way we judge people for things usually out of control. But it gets tricky because then you have people pretending to be sick. So do you pay them to take the day off?

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: WTP 2: ok i did find 5 kids in Florida that died with covid, still trying to find if it was from not with.

aren't you in the wrong thread?


i forgot what door i came in...
it was for joker420 99.5 survival rate.
a 41 year old friend died from an aortic aneurysm, they counted her as covid because she tested positive. i am beginning to think the numbers are a bit off. the real death numbers might be like the common cold, 1 in a million.
