The nurse was utterly confused, because he looked like he had stereotypical flu: dry cough, intense fatigue, muscle aches. But the fever was low grade.
He was excused from work for a week, and mostly recovered, but had to go back to work as a firefighter a week later.
On December 24, 2019, I drove a delirious friend, who works as a first responder near the Atlanta airport, to a clinic.
He came back negative for flu and for bacterial infection tests.
It's looking a lot more likely he had #COVID19. In *December*. The symptom profile matches.
So, Bernie supporters. I know you're scared right now, and I know you feel like you're being let down by the Democratic Party, by the media, by everyone around you.

I have O-negative blood, I'm HIV-negative, and I've been on PrEP continuously for years.

So: Seven could be bisexual too.
It's safe to say that I'm emotionally numb to it all now.
That's a pretty standard coping mechanism, and why I tend to be the one in my friend group to take the torch in crisis situations.
I can fully grieve and let it out when the world is closer to normal again. #COVID19
#Medicare4All is not just a talking point. It's a matter of life and death.
Time to sign on to it, @JoeBiden@twitter.com.
