FDA: Serological Tests Not Sufficient To Diagnose COVID-19

Directly from the FDA today (4/21/2020) "Health care providers should be aware of the limitations of serological tests intended to detect antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 and the risks to patients and the community if the test results are used as the sole basis to diagnose COVID-19.

The FDA is not aware of an antibody test that has been validated for diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection. While the FDA remains open to receiving submissions for these tests for such uses, based on the underlying scientific principles of antibody tests, the FDA does not expect that an antibody test can be shown to definitively diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection."

Anxiety is frustrating

I know it's probably confusing for people to see me talk about having anxiety while simultaneously putting out content that isn't.....sugarcoated (that's best word I can think of,) but that's just what it's like for someone like me. I'm great in a high-pressure crisis. Give me an emergency to deal with and I will switch into crisis mode and start solving problems however I can. Ask me what I want for dinner or what color you should make something? I might break down on you. I can't explain WHY my brain is like this, but it is. It's helpful in a crisis, not so much at other times😂 I have learned to keep it fairly well managed by being vigilante using my anxiety cards & other techniques AND keeping up with my daily management routine. The combination of methods keeps me from being overwhelmed by anxiety, even without using medication. I've wrote about all of this on my blog for anyone interested in learning to do the same. It takes time and effort. It's not an easy, overnight fix, but it's a sustainable management method that works.

#COVID19 It shouldn't have gotten this bad

I am posting this here because most of us are at risk from this virus, so the way this has been handled impacts us significantly more than the average person. We should be more angry with them than most. We are the ones they saw as acceptable losses. We can't let that go. This is my message to our political leaders: If this country gets reopened too soon, it will be the most irresponsible move in American history, and will result in losing EVEN MORE lives than we already have to. STOP MESSING UP. Can you really not see how bad of a mistake that would be?? Stop being weak. Stand up to those saying that you need to move faster than medical professionals advise. Get on the right side of history because it WILL be recorded forever in the history books, and hopefully they'll tell the truth about how the majority of these lives could have been saved if our leaders had reacted when they should have and with the seriousness that was required. We should have been shut down AT LEAST in January. We wouldn't be staying at home now it we had. There would be some guidelines in place, but they would have been able to contain the spread. Every death beyond what we would have lost if we'd shut down in January has been directly caused by political drama and we should NOT be accepting that as just life or okay. We should be outraged and letting them know how horrible it is that they've allowed so many to die. Yes, I blame them because it IS their fault.

#ChronicIllness After #COVID19

Since I'm all about finding the humor and any sliver of anything positive to hold on to when crappy things happen (while also acknowledging reality. You know I can't be one of those "positivity only" people. Life can suck,)- this virus will at least give us #chronicillnesswarriors some fuel in the future when someone tries to act like how we have to live is completely acceptable. I sincerely hope there are many changes coming that will make things better for all of us, based on the experiences able-bodied society has had during this crisis. I'm sure there are some that will still act like it's nothing (they are probably some of the same ones violating guidelines right now,) but I can hope😂💜 For more from me, visit the link in my profile #AloneTogether #stayathome #stayhomesavelives #InvisibleDisability #invisibleillnesswarrior #InvisibleIllness #Fibromyalgia #fibrowarriors #Spoonie #spooniewarrior #writtenbydida

Is it bad that I want to be quarantined?

I am an essential worker, Iam a vet tech, I feel bad because I want to stay home. I know many wish they still had a job, and I should be mood is so much better when I’m home, my boss is yelling at everyone for minor things because of the stress of the pandemic. #pandemic #essentialworker #COVID19 #stayathome


Maintaining contact with people while social distancing

I suffer from a lot of things but I’ve been getting incredibly lonely over the past couple days. I fear it’s all finally coming to me, the isolation is now affecting my mental health negatively.

I stayed up till 4 worrying about my future last night.
I am on the verge of tears right now and have been super sensitive.
I’ve tried to ignore my feelings and focus on the next step but I’m having trouble with that next step. Is it going to be bindge watching a TV show? Watching Coronavirus parody videos? Games? I’m running out of things to do. I used to go to coffee shops and meet friends for study groups for school. I used to be able to talk to people and hug them... and I just feel so bored and so alone right now.

I know I’m not alone but I’m very worried about myself. I am not sure just how much I can take.

The one person I can talk to is my roommate but he isn’t the kindest roommate and I end up just hiding in my room from him all day.

I almost feel like risking infection is worth my sanity because part of me thinks that if I don’t solve my mental health, I don’t know how recovery will go for the virus.

Suggestions, comments, and advice on how to connect would be helpful.

I’ve been hiking a bit, but it’s so lonely going alone.
