  1. yes! who the fvck knew not to take ibuprofen? well i definitely didn’t but the virtual doctor said basically to hide my ibuprofen bottles so i don’t take it by accident. i was told to try to let my body fight the fever as much as possible and when it got unbearable to take tylenol. ive been taking lukewarm baths and they help with the fever tremendously.
  2. i’m still just “presumptive positive.” my wife pled for me yesterday in the phone with our local hospital but they basically said if i’m young i should be ok. and i will be ok, and we’re operating in my house as if i’m confirmed. when i’m getting a bad spell it becomes imminently clear how elderly people are dying. it’s scary sh!t. today was an overall good day. hoping for more of the same tomorrow. some people’s severe symptoms only last a day or two, i’m praying that’s me. lucky for now i’m young and it’ll pass. my main concern now is keeping my wife healthy. different bedrooms and bathrooms and maintaining 6’ distance is about all we can do for right now.
  3. This is the weirdest sick i’ve ever been. Woke up this morning and told my wife i was about 15 minutes away from needing a hospital. It felt like i had been running wind sprints. Within 5 minutes of saying that, i felt okay-ish. 2 hours later i felt like i was completely and totally over it except for lingering throat and lung discomfort. Now i’m back in bed wondering if i’m going to need a hospital. Stay the fvck home.
  4. Morning everyone. After what can only be described as the worst night of my life, I have been declared “presumptive positive” by a video conference doctor and told to self isolate for 14 days after my fever has gone away 72 consecutive hours. I asked about getting a test and was basically told that i’m young and don’t need one because i live in a town full of old snowbirds. I asked if that made me less of a taxpaying citizen which the doctor did not appreciate. oh well. thing comes in waves. i’ll have two full hours where i think i’m completely over it and then i’ll have a coughing fit so bad it’s hard to get air. i’m a healthy, pretty fit 28 year old who plays hockey and tennis and works out.
  5. to answer the questions, I've been told that since I am not hospitalized and not in the age range of concern (and I have no underlying health issues), I can't get tested because of the limited quantities. which is a catch-22, because if I need to be hospitalized (and if this is the worst of it, I definitely don't) I need a positive test. Can't get a test without hospitalization, can't get hospitalized without a test. started 3 days ago. I had weird, weird, weird vivid dreams. A few migraines. Little bit of a cough. Tons of gastrointestinal distress even though I'm eating really clean lately (my wife is required to eat ridiculously healthy lately, so I'm doing so out of solidarity). it legit felt like I was housing wings and pitchers of beer. Yesterday it felt like a nasty cold. Today definitely feels like the flu or worse. When I inhale, there's a little bit of rattling... which is unsettling to say the least. I've been self quarantined since last monday, but our plumbing went out completely this weekend -- we had no hot water and low water pressure. So we had a plumber on monday morning. guessing that's where I got it, but who knows. stay home everyone. please. EDIT: and yes @Satans Hockey, I'm fortunate enough to have an unused guest room and guest bathroom at my house. We still pass eachother in the house, but at least I've been able to stay away from her as much as possible.
  6. Guess who has two thumbs, a 101.8 degree fever, a smoker's cough and a third refusal from Indian River County on a request for a COVD-19 test while I have an immunocompromised wife sitting next to me? this guy.
  7. 20% delayed salaries for three months as opposed to thousands of layoffs and some of you knuckle draggers act like the owners are Scrooge McDuck. It's still a business. In a world where I personally know 9 people who have lost their jobs since last week, that's pretty damn good.
  8. Arizona can win the lottery, and end up with pick #1, 2, or 3. If the season were to end today, Arizona could not end up with the 4th pick.
  9. My mom in NJ works at a grocery store. My grandpa who has serious heart and health issues lives at home with her. I’m barely sleeping, to be honest.
  10. I read somewhere that it is 7 times cheaper to keep an existing hire than it is to hire a replacement, even at a lower salary. I told my wife, during this whole work-from-home thing and with a likely recession that will follow, it’s time to show our offices how invaluable we are. Most people will probably produce less now that they’re home and free to do as they please, so if you can crank out work like an animal it’ll go a long way towards giving you job security when sh!t starts hitting the fan.
  11. I’m fortunate enough to make a healthy income while living in a state where you can live for the price of a VCR. But to answer your question; yes — outside my bedroom window i can see the clubhouse and restaurant area that’s been jam packed all week.
  12. I live in Vero Beach, where traffic has gone significantly *up* because all of the snowbirds decided to extend their stay or return to their winter house to "avoid" the disease. All they're doing is bringing it all back down to florida, which is woefully incapable of handling that demand. It's ruthless, but I think Florida should say "if you're sick while you're here and you don't have a Florida license, you don't get a bed if a floridian is in more need." These selfish old fvcks are putting everyone else at risk to slightly mitigate their own. They're not quarantining -- they're lounging around the country club (which I can see from my bedroom window), they're going to bi-weekly trivia night at the local bars, they're flooding the restaurants. My wife is immunocompromised and I swear to god if she even starts to sniffle, I'm about to go outside and make a sport out of running these cvnts off the road.
  13. It’s not like “not finishing a season” is unprecedented in US sports. Just look at Donny Baseball’s best chance at a World Series.
  14. I’d watch the fvck out of that lmao.
  15. If there’s no playoffs, I’d imagine everyone gets a small percentage chance at the lottery. I’m fully anticipating vancouver’s pick to be next year instead of this year.
  16. Did you just pick out “St Patrick’s Day Parade” and ignore the fact that AN ENTIRE FVCKING FIRST WORLD COUNTRY IS CURRENTLY ON LOCK DOWN YOU ABSOLUTE CRAYON EATING BUFFOON.
  17. “Put aside statistics. Here is how it looks in practice. Most of my childhood friends are now doctors working in north Italy. In Milan, in Bergamo, in Padua, they are having to choose between intubating a 40-year-old with two kids, a 40-year old who is fit and healthy with no co-morbidities, and a 60-year-old with high blood pressure, because they don't have enough beds. In the hallway, meanwhile, there are another 15 people waiting who are already hardly breathing and need oxygen. The army is trying to bring some of them to other regions with helicopters but it's not enough: the flow is just too much, too many people are getting sick at the same time.“ stupid media inventing a stupid disease, right @mfitz804?!
  18. Even if you’re not in the target age range, attitudes like this could cause irreparable and unnecessary harm. Try to pretend that you’re not the smartest guy you’ve ever met for ten seconds and read this. http://news.originalgreen.org/#/
  19. In the United States right now, you can’t get tested for the Coronavirus unless you have proof that you’ve been in contact with someone who has an active case. the number of reported cases is dramatically different than the number of active cases. “media driven panic” doesn’t shut down the entire country of fvcking italy.
  20. when the flu carries a 300% likelier death rate, a 1000% likelier infection rate, and is currently overflowing hospitals around the world and shutting down the 8th biggest economy in the world, i guess we’ll start talking about it.
  21. “I am concerned with Hughes” is a point well worth discussing. “Jack Hughes is a bust and will have a terrible career, we should trade him” is not.
  22. Is it your opinion that everyone on this forum is high on Pavel Zacha and that we all give him a pass? Because holy sh;t lol
  23. You're right. I take back my post. Only a moron would say something that stupid.
  24. Hughes was the youngest player ever for the United States team at the Worlds and was playing on a team full of top flight NHL talent and is holding his own just fine, as contrasted with Eichel and Matthews who got top line minutes playing with, at best, average pros. As a 17 year old Hughes excelled against college players, many of whom are older than 22. He could have entered the NHL 18 months ago and he'd probably be one of the twenty fastest skaters in the league. The only source of this ridiculous concept that Hughes is not going to be a good player I can think of would be David Conte or Connor Chatham.
