Health Coronavirus - How Did It Go For You?


Recommended Posts

Covid hurt. Not in the top 10 pain I've been in, but I also wouldn't recommend it. Wash your hands, you nasties. Aside from getting the virus, and a couple of other shitty but unrelated medical things that happened, Covid made my life a lot more convenient. My husband got a new job where he was able to work from home, and aside from never seeing him, even though he's across the hall from me at all times, not a lot changed. On the few occasions I do get food out, I bring it home instead of eating it at the restaurant. Vet visits have categorically sucked, but and I'm sick of hearing "The new normal" in ads. I miss traveling, since my husband and I usually do a Disney vacation every other year, and 2020 was that year. I was supposed to see my parents, but they live close to my mother in law, so I dodged a bullet there, I suppose. Honestly, I think we should have been wearing masks before now because wet mouth holes are gross.

When I initially heard of the virus spreading to the United States, I wasn’t expecting it to advance to the degree it has. When it did, my concern grew a bit more but not to a crazy level. When all places but essential businesses shut down, I was fine with that. Me, already being a total shut in, didn’t mind being quarantined & alone for a long period of time. I was also making more money on unemployment than I was actually working. My family and friends have been fine and my life really hasn’t been impacted that negatively.

I flunked in school this year because I wasn't really good with the online classwork and that really sucked.  Several other frustrating things happened to me throughout the year, but to be fair, Covid had pretty much nothing to do with them. The only positive thing that came out of this for me, was that it made me rethink my entire perspective on almost everything, which I'm somewhat grateful for. As much as 2020 sucked, something in me still hates 2019 more, but I guess that's more down to personal experience.

The way our company is screwing people over who get it, it honestly pays you to lie about not having covid and endangering everybody else by coming to work. It’s punishing to be honest about getting sick or having any family getting sick. We’re already a small team and we’re down people due to covid. Not only has our workload increased but the engineers are being an extra pain with wanting their stuff done. Because it’s the “future”, we don’t exactly have the manpower to care about your future, we can’t even fulfill customer orders due to lack of people. They don’t even schedule it, it’s a surprise. They just show up and expect you to drop everything you’re doing to do stuff for them. Normally this was a day walker problem but with our people sick with covid being on day shift they pushed it to us on the off shift. They don’t come up to me because they know I’ll possibly argue about it but it still screws us all over because it puts us more behind losing a person to their nonsense. Especially when it’s unplanned. 

I have a hard time not voicing my opinion when in the moment. It’s a probably a problem.

Worst year of my life? That's far from being true. Have had way worse years. Hay, even 2019 was a worse year for me than 2020.

The lock up can't hit you if you can keep yourself busy at home. For me that was taking a new hobby (music composition) and dedicating more time to older hobbies (playing videogames and developing them as well). All I needed to keep myself busy was my computer, a pencil and a notebook. I don't like crowded places, so the lockdown was actually nice for that part.

My entire family already had COVID. Everyone is doing fine. No one needed to go to ER (2 members of the family are medics, so they took preventive measures to avoid that). As far as I'm concerned, COVID is more annoying than fatal if people just bucking wear their masks, stay home and stop bitching. Duuude, we have teras of entertainment on the web. How can we get "bored" if everything is at the reach of a couple clicks?

My life wasn't drastically affected by COVID aside from my gym closing and a planned trip to Florida in May being cancelled. Instead I took a couple of trips away from the house with the furthest being Pennsylvania. The busy season at my job was pushed to July due to tax deadlines being extended three months.

I had two close calls, both among people I work with. In September, someone who visited my office tested positive. In December, my boss tested positive so we had to work from home for one week.

Its been a mixed bag for me. I don't mind the social isolation so much, it's pretty much what I'm used to, but seeing all the death around me (that hasn't affected my family yet, fortunately) is still a bit too much for me.

On the bright side, I've been participating in a vaccine study for astrazeneca which has given me an early vaccine and quite a bit of money (by my standards). I've spent some of that money on a custom pony plush, so at least I'll have something to cuddle when it gets finished and the pandemic is still going on.

i think i got off easy. i didn't have anywhere to go that was important, i live dab smack in the middle of nowhere, live in one of the least affected states of my country, and my government actually did okay with handling the situation. i'm very germ-conscious even before the pandemic, so i was all over social distancing when that system was put in place. the only thing that i really wanted to do for 2020 was to travel, but borders close and stuff.

i downplay covid more than what i should because of my experiences, so i admit i can come off as insensitive on how other people are handling it. i do worry about my friends though, they are in a tougher situation than anyone else i know.

Between both my parents catching it and working for a shitheel company(Amazon) that does fuck all in protecting us and working us to the bone for that last few months, it's been pretty miserable for me

I hope I never get COVID, my dad only went to the hospital for a couple of hours but it was still really scary when he did. Not to mention, tons of family friends have either been in the hospital or died from it. He didn't take it very seriously at the start but from the moment since he caught it he's been really strict on making sure we keep our distance

Let's see. Gladly I didn't get ill, even my family avoided it on the personal level. I have become a total misanthrope and have no hope for the future on the emotional level. I am glad the place I am at now handles it more sensibly. Also I am glad I can avoid as much media as possible.
