Deleted Member Posted March 22, 2022 Posted March 22, 2022 Hello, apologies, I don't know if this is the right place to post this. If not could someone point me in the right direction. Anyway.... The other week I met with someone from grindr. I picked him up and started driving down the road, 10 minutes into the drive he announced that he has a sore throat. By this time I almost home. I was mildly concerned but continued with the 'festivities'. That was a big mistake. A day later I came down with a sore throat and dry cough and runny nose. 'this doesn't feel like covid-19 but ill check anyway. Luckily it wasn't. However a week into being slightly ill I had been coughing quite a lot and was starting to cough small amounts of blood first thing in the morning. OK now I'm starting to get a bit worried but not overly worried. After all I do have a very robust immune system and I'm sure it will sort itself out in due course. The next day my coughing started me to have a headache in my right temple and eye when I coughed. Now things are getting painful and difficult for me to function properly. But still I carried on working as best I could as work waits for no man. Next day (yesterday) I now have a full blown eye infection requiring eye patches, hospital appointments, and a lot of pain. For all intents and purposes I am currently blind. Well almost. So two lessons learnt here. 1. IF YOU ARE I'LL DO NOT EVER AGREE TO MEET WITH SOMEONE! 2. If you do meet someone and they announce they have a sore throat or are ill in some way, abandon the meeting and walk away. A sore throat for one person could mean a full blown chest infection or cause an eye infection or something else for another person. Because of this I may have to cancel my first visit to a fetish club at the end of the month. I was really looking forward to going as it would have been a birthday present to myself for my 40th. I don't really celebrate my birthday but this year WAS going to be different. I am really upset about this and makes me lose faith in the human race. If you are ill PLEASE don't agree to meet anyone until you are well again.
