Gonzo Journal – My ‘Rona Test

Well, it finally happened and I’m not proud of it. If you follow my stuff, you know that I was in the ER on Saturday for heart attack like symptoms. When my heart was given a completely clean bill of health, heat exhaustion was blamed for my dizziness and chest issues. Perhaps that was not the case…

Tom Thumb was not quite ready for the Plague Doctor mask…

The ER NEVER tested me for COVID – 19 although I have no idea if they can tell that from the several vials of blood they took from me. My dizziness continued on into Monday as my sense of smell and taste disappeared. My wife was exhibiting similar symptoms as well. So, we got swabbed in the nose today to take every precaution possible. It was the smart thing to do and nowhere near as bad as what some people with an online presence have made it out to be. They stick a Q Tip in your nose, swish it round, and put it in a vial. It was a public site organized by Parkland hospital of Dallas. Everyone there, patrons and employees alike, were very pleasant and helpful. There wasn’t much of a line either. Don’t believe a lot of the hype you see on television or online concerning Dallas. If you’re symptomatic, get tested. End of story. I’ll know the details in about a week. Until then, I’ll just keep doing C. Derick Miller things from the comfort of my home office. Positive light is much appreciated. So are book purchases and podcast listens nudge nudge, hint hint, wink wink, say no more…
