Is this deja vu? I thought you got sick and self-quarantined like last month? Got better then went back to work?
I think I asked you in that thread if you ever got tested, so did you?

It's been almost a week now.
The bride and one of the sons got fevers last week. Aches, pains, they just slept a lot, took tylenol, drank plenty of fluids. The fevers lasted 3 days, knocked down with tylenol, but only for a short time. They got better, and are feeling better.
Here's the kicker.
I never got sick, neither did our youngest son.
So what do we do?
I took the responsible position and reported it to my betters. What could I do? I was asymptomatic with it but because I did a little visit to Africa a few years ago I also spent about 18 months on chloroquinine because I had malaria.
So that's me.
So there we are. The docs would like us all tested, especially me, but since I'm asymptomatic, and the "state" has issued guidelines on who is to be tested, I can't get tested.
The "state" is determining medical decisions.
I'm still busy at (home office) work, the bills are paid, the booze is flowing and the work still comes into my home office, so this isn't a whine, neither is it a brag. It just is.
It's frustrating. Probably be this way until the 15th of this month. I can easily just return to work, won't have to grocery shop by email, will be able to go outside and mingle with other people, but they won't test.
The only testing they are doing is for people that need to be hospitalized.
People like me, asymptomatic, people like my little bride who were miserable for a few days?
This is my real life. . . on-going drama.
It's not MSM, there is no drama, just real people being stopped from doing what they'd like to do because government has said so.
So this is an honest, real life story of this stupid, effing crap-virus.
No jokes about running out of booze this time. (I have plenty)
And meat. Though my neighbors may not be answering their doors.
