If you are keeping up with my frey miller post i am in quarantine after getting covid. Whether you wear the mask dont wear the mask if you feel like you have the flu like symptoms get checked out. Please please please dont be a super trucker and try to fight through it. I wouldnt wish this feeling on anyone in the world especially on the road. Just typing this on my phone is exhausting me. Well that's my two cents. Now im broke.

Georgia Mike, I'm very sorry that you contracted Covid-19 but stay tuff. Keep resting and do everything the doctors recommend and praying that your recovery is quick and complete. There are plenty of "super truckers" here on TT that think they have all the correct answers either professional, political or medical but until you experience the effects of Covid you can not form an opinion. I get the flu vaccine yearly ever since my one and only time of contracted the flu. Being in my 70's now and trying to do everything possible to prevent contracting Covid-19 it is concerning but not overpowering that you do whatever you can to keep safe. Masks, washing hands, sanitizers, safe distances and covering coughs and sneezes are the easiest ways to help yourself and others to try and stay safe.

Stay safe Georgia Mike and I wish you a quick and complete recovery.

Howre you feeling Mike?

Also, what does the diabetes diagnosis (mentioned in other thread) mean for your employment?

Im taking vitamins and switching between ibuprofen and Tylenol to help with the aches.
