    Hey DVXUSER community,

    Hope everyone is safe and healthy during these crazy times. My wife and I both tested positive for Covid-19, so I'm doing the only things that I can right now: staying home, resting up, and documenting the ups and downs of our journey. I'm currently several revisions into a cut of the whole story (well, our story keeps growing/changing by the day....), but today we shared the first two videos about it on my YouTube channel.

    Here's the link to the first video:





    if you'd like to follow along, here's the website I created where I'll be posting updates about the film project: https://www.makinglemonade.film/

    Wishing you both the best! My wife’s 80-year-old mother tested positive three weeks ago. She had a mild fever for two nights, and after that she’s been symptom-free. Hopefully you guys will be on that same path.

    I’m from NYC and we know more than a few family, friends and friends of friends who have tested positive.

    The good news is, now you know and can take appropriate measures.

    Stay patient.

    Stay strong.

    Thumbs up.

    Thoughts & prayers, Mr. Chris.

    Based on the Stanford, Chelsea, and USC studies, I'd be surprised if there are more than a few of us here that also have and haven't realized it.

    Hang in there! You'd be surprised how many people have had it and probably don't realize it, or connect the dots. I just skyped with a friend from Europe who visited us in LA at the beginning of the year. Not long after he landed - a few days - he got extremely sick, temperature, couldn't get out of bed for days etc. We met up a week after his illness and thought nothing of it. Now during the skype convo, he told me he thinks that was Covid he went through, because when he landed at LAX he stood in the "immigration" line for 3 hours, and it just so happened that he stood with a crowd of Chinese folks who were coughing and so on (as happens after a long flight). He now suspects he caught it at that time and a few days later was very ill. Fortunately he recovered, but thinks that as soon as he gets tested he'll find out he's had it.

    On the flip side, apparently up to 88% of the people who get it are completely symptomless. And now they say that Covid must have reached the U.S. weeks/months before it became an official thing and a couple of people who died did so from the virus. Bottom line, this thing is probably much more wide-spread and varied in how it impacts people - there's no real standard way it works in everybody. The more we learn, the more we learn. It's a journey.

    Stay safe, and keep turning those lemons into lemonade with your documentary! Best of luck!

    Stay strong and be well. I suspect I had it in mid-March. A few days of fever and general cold-like symptoms. Luckily it went away without issue over a few weeks. Hope the same for you!

    We know of four friends that have had COVID-19 and all with varying degrees of seriousness. All have recovered and are doing well today.

    Take care, stay safe, and get well.

    best
