    I’ve been battling what I thought was the flu for over a week. Went to the docs today to be told I have walking pneumonia. Kava is being stored for the duration of this one until the antibiotics are done.

    I’m an idiot. I let this thing get me to temps of 104.2 thinking it was the flu.

    I hope everyone is doing and feeling well.

    Yeah man, that kind of fever is too high for the flu. Glad you got checked out and diagnosed! Many people in the world don’t have that chance. Get well soon, brother

    Just think how sweet that first shell will be once you feel better.

    Get well Kapm! Doesn't sound like a fun way to start the year.
    An encouragement: I was off kava for a couple weeks until this evening, and the first session back is extremely euphoric and powerful. Kavatom is right!

    My year also started off shitty. I had a flu (without the fever) and then slipped and fell down a flight of icy stairs. My life flashed before my eyes, but I must have fallen just right and walked away with bruises and whiplash. I still feel like I got hit by a train though. I'll throw back three or four tanoas in your honor, Kapm!

    That is no fun whatsoever. Here is hoping you recover quickly and get well soon.

  8. Sorry to hear about everyone having a rough year so far. As hard as it can be; we have to put things into perspective. We have it so good. There are so many people that have no freedoms, food, housing, etc. I’ve been listening to BBC news a ton the past couple of weeks to get more of a global perspective compared to the news in the US. This planet is a mess. We are blessed to have what we have. Have a great weekend everyone! Bula!

    Take it easy and get well soon but prepare for the possibility that total recovery can take awhile. That is true, at least, for Pneumonia. I am not certain what the difference is in Walking Pneumonia. Rest and frequent napping may become the norm for a few weeks or month. In 2018 (for the 1st time in my life) I had Flu/Broncitis/Pneumonia- one after the other. Long time recovering and now I (also 1st time) got the vaccines!

    Thank you everyone. Still fighting. Was running 102 last night. I’ve had a conversation with the wife and parents and Monday is doctor #2 day. These antibiotics are killer too. Nothing like dry heaving, a chest full of congestion and a 102 temp. It’s gotten old really fast. I’m at day 10 now.

    Well they’re laying on the barrage of viral tests. They think it’s likely a rarer viral pneumonia. They’re saying it’s much worse than the flu and I can fully attest to that. No shells in the hospital room unfortunately.
