a sports writer on getting the virus

I was going to type some emotional tweet about how I’m thankful to be back on NFL coverage this week and I am but most of you don’t care and that’s fine.

I’m 33 and healthy and I got COVID and it sucked. It sucked feeling like a truck hit me and having no life in my body.

It sucked going from my bed to my kitchen for water and feeling like I was going to pass out. It sucked feeling like I couldn’t breathe beyond 50% capacity for three days, fearing the same thing that Emmanuel Sanders, A PRO FOOTBALL PLAYER, feared.

Save your “survival rate” and “infection rate” screenshots. I’ve seen them. They won’t matter to you if you, the individual, go to bed honestly wondering if your body will stop working overnight. I’m not sure how people can’t comprehend that. The whole experience sucked.

And it sucked a lot less because I took in a lower viral load cause I wore a mask as diligently as I have while traveling. I don’t know when my lungs will decide to be 100% again but I’m going to work my ass off to get them as close to normal as possible

In the meantime, have some empathy for your fellow human, in fact for millions who dealt with this and likely will continue to deal with this in some capacity, hopefully a small one, and wear the @#$%& masks and stop @#$%& about LITERALLY the least you are being asked to do.

I usually say things nicely, so I apologize if this wasn’t nice.

But I don’t want to feel the way my body felt like that again. And I don’t want you to have to feel that way either. So I say these things in hopes that maybe you’ll minimize the chance you or someone else gets it.
