When COVID started popping up in the USA last year, I took note. The more we heard, the more nervous we got, not so much the family as a whole, but me for sure because my son and I are both asthmatic. When we finally caught COVID a year later, in April of 2021, I made sure to keep track of my symptoms so I could share them with other people when I was feeling better. Here's how it went.

I don't watch the news a whole lot, I get that fear sells and "if it bleeds it leads", so I tried to stay away from the screen and look at the overall survivability rates. I knew they were high, something like 99.98% chance of survival in my age range (43 years old) and about the same for my ten year old son, if not a bit higher. Still, in the back of my head I couldn't help but feel afraid. What if we were different than other people? What if it was worse for us? What if it didn't feel like it was going to be bad, but then it got bad and....and.....and....you get the idea.
In case you're wondering and you don't want to read this whole blog post, we're fine. It was basically a mild flu that lasted about two weeks for me, and about three days for him. I'll get into all of that below, but I figured I'd help you out if you just wanted the end of story part right at the beginning.
So, while I don't know the official chances of surviving COVID with asthma, I do know that we survived just fine, and I doubt my son even noticed he had it at all.
