I've sometimes used the injury archive to see how long people have taken to get over specific injuries and see how they handled them, it's been pretty useful.

Would it be useful to add a specific category for covid like the flu one ?

You just make sure to stay on your side of the border you dirty Sydneysider.

Well, I was thinking of you and Matt (Elk) particularly, yes.

You can still type, so that's good :)

I especially like the cases where people suffered illnesses and injuries for a negative number of days. Must have been feeling really good.

Converse is when people have injuries and illnesses for hundreds of days when they are clearly recovered - they just don't turn it off.

I set my limit for 1000 days :P

For reporting or being actually injured?

If its plantar fascia I tend to take the high numbers at face value.

no kidding. I feel like pf is one of those things that's never cured, just sometimes in remission.

My PF has lingered since Feb 2019. Still bothering me so I'm leaving it on. :-(
(I like the "remission" thought; there were a couple times I thought it was gone but, nope, just waiting to reappear.)

@ Invisible - Ha! I just discovered the little checkbox for "recovered". Wondered why that one old injury was still displaying.... Thanks for pointing that out!

You've been on here for 15 years and only listed three injuries! You would be aghast at my injury history.

Scrolling through the list of injuries ordered by durations tends to alleviate self-pity.

@mikeminium - I demand 1/2 the credit for you finding the recovered checkbox! :-)) I noted it before Invis.
