Hypochondriac's Lounge: "Have I had it?"
I think I have. I had almost no symptoms but the dizziness and the sense of having a bug. I have other stuff I'm dealing wtih so it's a little ambiguous. Had a cold/flu 6 weeks ago or so. Jackson Browne said he has tested positive and is at home, no medical treatment necessary.

No test for me according to my Dr. Go on with life for now. I'm aging but not elderly.

I wonder if many cases are going to be like this.

I know I havn't had it. I'm still alive. I was tested in the hospital after my surgery, as well.
Of course being a hypochondriac I think every sniffle or cough means I have it. I keep tamping down the fear.
I'm kinda sad, ain't I?

I'm self isolated if living in the middle of the nowhere counts.
