Nah, I'm young - It'll never happen to me


"It won't really affect me," I said to myself, but it did...big-time...

I heard 80% of COVID-19 cases are mild, yeah, sure. "Even the 'mild' cases of this disease are serious," says Mark Davis from Asbury Park, New Jersey. Even if I caught the virus, after a couple days rest I would be back to normal. But that's not the way it was...
"It knocks you down, runs you over, sits on your chest and never, ever lets up."
Nothing "mild" about that. The upside was, "I'm lucky enough to not have asthma or one of the many other conditions that can lead to further coronavirus complications." Mark learned three days after feeling the symptoms, his father, an emergency room doctor, had tested positive. Bingo, now you know the source...
"On March 23, I drove myself to an urgent care in Marlboro, New Jersey, to get tested. A team of three employees took my temperature and administered the test — a cotton swab pushed just past the point of "comfortable" in the back of my nose. I had a 104-degree fever and uncontrollable shakes and shivers."
When he did eat, even though you lose your appetite, that and just getting up off the couch was an effort. Mark is just beyond being a millennial, where the nonchalant attitude has resulted in numerous cases of coronavirus in the 18 to 29 age group, most recently a Texas group that went to Mexico on spring break, returning home with 24 cases of the virus. Close to home a family member in this group told my wife, "Oh, it's just a virus,"

Listen to Mark...
"I implore you: Stay home. Practice social distancing. The various mandates and guidelines passed in the wake of the pandemic were put in place to protect us."
You're on Progressive Street...Where Liberals Walk...
