Lakewood OH?!?

I was raised in Cleveland, Brook Park actually - Smith Rd about 100 yds south of Brook Park Rd right on the border of Cleveland.

I graduated from Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School. Definitely some similarities in our life stories!

I was born and raised in Michigan, though, 0-15, and then did undergrad at Eastern Michigan. I did do one semester at Kent State before I decided to go back to where I considered home, Ypsilanti.

Damn. What's the word for right now? How do you feel? One of my dad's best friends got it at the age of 60, recovered, but he had 8-9 days of feeling like he had a pretty intense flu (fever, cough, aches, etc.). I wish the best for you. This thing is no joke.
Took my first test. I have chronic symptoms that all appeared as Corona symptoms (but what's NOT a Corona symptom at this point?). Sore throat wasn't a symptom until last month...?

Finding out by Monday. Fingers crossed.

You went to Evanston for record stores? When right there in the area you had Wax Trax, Reckless Records, and 2nd Hand Tunes? Oh, the countless hours (and dollars) I spent in those places.

I grew up in Hyde Park but my dad moved to an apartment on Briar (just one block south of Belmont) and Lake Shore Drive in the mid-90's. Who knows, maybe our dads crossed paths all the time.

In high school we use to drive into Chicago from the northern suburbs  just to go to Wax Trax and buy pink Floyd bootleg records.

Tested Negative.

I've had all of these symptoms at one point or another and some of them have been consistent:

- Chills
- Cough
- Fatigue
- Headache
- Sore Throat
- Congestion/Runny Nose
- Nausea
- Persistent pressure in the chest

And yet I still tested negative. I believe the diagnosis. It truly is a virus that contains the symptoms of most common illnesses. I also suffer from clinical depression so most of these symptoms might have naturally occurred.
