    Recently lost my boyfriend to COVID-19.

    It is incredibly difficult not to overstate how quickly things seemed to shift. One minute he was exhibiting flu symptoms out of nowhere and the next, he's in the ICU with severe pneumonia. It took six miserable days on a ventilator and then nothing more. No recovery we had hoped, cried, and prayed for. Not even a life-long medical condition as a consequence. Just his passing. One of the most important and amazing people I had ever met is now gone at the mere age of 26.

    I still have his voice message promising me he was going to wake back up. No pre-existing medical condition. No irresponsible behavior on his part I can point to and rage at. Just an unfortunate casualty of this fucking virus.

    I keep weeping when something tiny comes up in my mind that reminds me of him and it is the worse type of pain because the only cure for that feeling is time and even then, I'm not sure that can be enough. One of the most generous, non-intimidating, and lovably goofy guys you can meet was ripped away and I could only sit on my hands.

    PLEASE stay inside and only come out when absolutely necessary (work, groceries, pharmacy, etc.). I would not wish this on anyone.

    EDIT: Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of kindness and grace. It's already hard to focus on my coursework, but the well wishes are a nice distraction at this point. All I ask is that you please take care of yourselves and each other.

    It's crazy how this virus can kill some people and some folks are just fine. Scary.

    Man, it is my sincerest/ deep sympathy/ and condolence to you. COVID-19 Has no face or color "but it is a very hard sacrifice where people rather stay home/ not check in the ER and tuff it out than to die alone." I am so sorry.

    It's complicated
    This is heart breaking. It so hard for us to meet people like us, much less to get to know and love them only for something like this to happen...
