I woke up on Sep 7th after having chills the night before. So, today I count as day 9. I'll be glad to get back to my local church, hopefully soon.

I've had all the symptoms, bad headache, bones/joints ached, weariness, loss of smell/taste. It has not been the most pleasant experience. 

Hope you get to feeling better soon.

I can sympathize with you, the covid flu bug went through our entire crew before covid was even identified, it was a doozy.

Luckily two of the days that I was down were days off and the 3 day back at work I was dragging.  Never went to the doc and recovered just fine.

Praying for you, Brother. I can totally empathize and sympathize with you. Vivian and I have experienced it twice...her with just a few symptoms, and me with near-death experiences both times. We got it the first time in December of 2019 before they could truly identify what it was. Because of this, they couldn't truly treat it. The second time was last year around this time. I lost a lot of weight, and because of the side effects, I lost a lot more. 80 lbs to be exact. I still have what they call long-covid. You're definitely in our prayers here.

Praying for you also brother. Indeed I had a terrible bout of flu in 2016 this time of year also. Down for two weeks, hard to breath, chills, aches, hardly could move the entire time and no sense of smell or taste. Worst illness of my life. Come to think of it, I have never had a common cold where I could smell nor taste very well either. Get well soon.

Just read this - I'm glad you are recovering. My hubs and I had it last winter - and it hung on for weeks. We had a real issue with lethargy after the respiratory stuff cleared up. We were blessed to get some Ivermectin (😉 ) which helped us.  We also took zinc, drinking it down with tonic water. We drank that for a while even after things cleared up.

Thanks. I feel fine now. A little cough with some congestion is all I have. I've mowed yard, taken down the tomato plants, cleaned the grill, and just a little weariness after exertion.

Amen, brother. Good to hear you're on the mend. I had it in May '21. As an asthmatic I was a little concerned when, after several days, my blood oxygen wouldn't climb higher than 87. Because of all the hype I went to the hospital, but that was a waste of time and money. They kept me over night for monitoring then sent me home with a new prescription. For me and my family it really hasn't registered any worse than a typical flu (except son lost taste for about 6 months). We do have a pretty healthy diet (plenty of C and D3) and are relatively active. I believe that helps.

As an aside we need an "AMEN" or "Answer to prayer" reaction emoji. That would have been more appropriate than the "Like" I gave your post.

Thanks brother. I attended prayer meeting yesterday evening for the first time since Sep 4. Yes, an AMEN and Answered Prayer emoji would be nice. Thanks to all who prayed for me. I thank God for the bodies He gave us, able to heal itself from the nasty diseases and maladies we've brought on ourselves after the fall. 

Revelation 21:4   And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Revelation 22:3   And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 

NO MORE! AMEN!

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
