KSR caller on battle with coronavirus: “This is living pure hell”

Darryl McCoy is a familiar voice to KSR listeners. For years, the Belfry native and Paintsville resident has called into the show, producing some of our favorite moments, like his debate with Chester over Mark Stoops a few years back and his love affair with J.Rock’s mom.

Today’s call was different. Darryl, who cohosts The David and Darryl Show about Eastern Kentucky sports, revealed that he has COVID-19. Through contract tracing, Darryl said the health department tracked his infection to a church service on July 26. He started noticing symptoms (sweating, body aches, headaches) a week later while on a family trip to Kings Island and once home, self-quarantined and got tested. He’s sharing his experience in hopes it will encourage others to take the virus seriously, which he admitted he didn’t before his diagnosis.

“For all you big, bad people like I was at the beginning sitting there saying, ‘I don’t want to wear a mask, it’s hard to breathe,’ listen, you’ll be counting your prayers you wore a mask once you get this. It literally puts you in panic attacks. It gets to where I’m scared for my life sometimes because I’ve kind of let my health issues go a little bit. The migraines and the breathing is by far the two worst things of this.”

Darryl said that before all of this, he even thought the virus was a hoax.

“100%. I was the first one. I was this big bad, MAGA American that wasn’t wanting to wear my mask anywhere I go, wasn’t wanting to stop shaking hands, but now that I got this…This thing is very easy to get. I don’t know when it’s going to end. Last night I didn’t sleep a wink. You’re talking about living pure hell. This is living pure hell.”

Darryl’s advice to others? Take the coronavirus seriously and do your part to stop the spread.

“As bad as this thing is, we can root it out as fast as it comes in. Do what you’re supposed to. Wear a mask, wash your hands, and we’ll have football but if not, it’s going to be like it is now. We’ve had two schools here just yesterday cancel activities until further notice. It’s going to keep being like that until people learn to do what they’re going to do and take care of their neighbor because listen, you don’t want your loved one getting this, Matt. I’m telling you, this virus is not a joke. I appreciate you letting me tell people and hopefully it gets through to some people like I was, some hard-headed people.”

You can listen to the call below. Thanks to Darry for sharing his story. We wish him and his family a full recovery.

      The real point is you can play the odds if you want to but perfectly “healthy” people have had severe cases as well. Who wants to take that chance? And of course we still don’t know what the long term residual issues are. Many things have shown up even for those who only had “mild” cases. Perhaps you would be fine but then again perhaps not.

      And even the experts disagree on some of this. For all you “What’s your doctorate in?” types, look at the medical doctors that have been censored by all the big social media companies. I don’t know if they’re right or not, but do Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube (Google) know more than those doctors? Does Bill Gates have an MD, training in virology, immunology? He’s not being censored.

      BTW, I have never thought the virus was a hoax, but I’ve always thought the lockdowns were too much, and I still do.

      Yup, and luckily we have a vaccine that either prevents or limits the intensity of your illness if you catch it. I get the flu shot every October and haven’t missed a day of work in the 6.5 years I’ve been at my current job. Just missed three weeks with COVID and it was MUCH worse than any flu I ever had.

      Hello visitor from March 2020,

      You’ve conveniently dropped the talking point about the flu killing more people than COVID, as the first seven months of COVID has killed nearly three times as many people as the worst full flu season in the U.S.

    Got a couple people already in the comments who think like he did. Unfortunately, just like Darryl, people like that have to personally suffer from it before they acknowledge how bad it is for so many people. Empathy and reason are in short supply these days.

    Can’t really be surprised since there are so many people who keep driving drunk or “buzzed” until they kill someone else because they “know their own limits.”

    Wow! Y’all are some real jerks. “Hey most people don’t get that sick or don’t have symptoms, so why should we worry about it?! Tough sh’t for those who have a hard time with their symptoms, or get really sick or even have to be hospitalized (and potentially rack up thousands in medical bills) or maybe even develop long term issues like congestive heart failure, paralysis from strokes, or chronic fatigue syndrome, and God forbid, those that die. I don’t want to have to wear a mask or change my life in any way to help anyone else because I’m an American and that’s my freedom and God given right.” Doesn’t matter to you if we can’t predict who is going to get really sick or who won’t. Some people have a higher chance given comorbidities, but it can affect young healthy people in terribly even deadly ways. My doctorate is in medicine and listening to Daryl this morning, I heard one thing that was very key to his experience. The symptom of shortness of breath. Some have described it as feeling like their drowning. Others have described it as like they’re choking. Daryl said it almost gave him a panic attack. That doesn’t happen with the flu. THIS IS WORSE THAN THE FLU. Get it with your heads. And have a heart. Damn. Y’all are some cold cold people. What if that was your brother or friend? Pause for a second and be a human being who can experience empathy. PLEASE. And I pray that you never have to know someone who gets this illness and suffers from it. Really I do. I wouldn’t wish this on the biggest Louisville fan.

      Then why is the establishment suppressing the use of hydroxychloroquine (sp?)? You have plenty of doctors out there saying it’s helping their patients, but they’re being censored on social media and some states are threatening to take their licenses away, yet Bill Gates the computer guy is somehow the Pied Piper whose leading us to a vaccine and isn’t being censored.

      I have empathy, and I wore a mask before it was mandated, but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with the continued lockdowns. Incidentally, my wife is a nurse and she is on the front lines, and she believes those doctors should be heard.

      CG, big pharma can’t let people find anything that is effective other than the vaccine Bill Gates, who as you stated has NO background of any sort in the medical field, is pushing. When will people wake up to the censorship that is hiding any and everything that does not fit the official narrative? If everything they’re forcing on us was true why would there be a need to censor anything? Freedom of speech is the first amendment in case anyone has forgotten. This is not the America I grew up in, the constitution used to mean something….not anymore.

      TO chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door,

      Not sure about whether lockdowns are truly helping. I would have to weigh the economic impacts (loss of health insurance for unemployed, loss of income, etc) vs the health impacts to answer that question…which is pretty much impossible.
      My opinion….I agree lockdowns have done more harm to society via the negative impact on the economy than the good done by shutting down the economy to stop the spread of the virus. (Maybe this is due to people not following protocols, but this is impossible to determine statistically. Anyone who says otherwise is just guessing like I just did).

      Now to hydroxychloroquine…

      Three firms (not leftist organizations but research organizations) have published studies saying there is no evidence that hydroxychloroquine helps covid-19 patients.
      I’m a data scientist, and I downloaded my own data and analyzed the results. I also found no evidence that the drug made a significant difference (in improving covid-19 cases).

      BTW, I’m relatively moderate, but lean conservative more so than not. I’m not trying to say you are not intelligent, I’m not that kind of person or at least I try not to be…I’m just sharing the info/knowledge I have gained through careful study and analysis.
      There has been an extreme amount of misinformation spread about this drug’s potential impact on those that have the virus, so I can understand why you would think it would help. However, the data clearly shows that it does not help fight off or prevent covid-19.

      The only logical explanation for why this would help someone with covid-19 is if the patient that has covid-19 also is suffering from an auto-immune disease, the drug should be used to treat certain auto-immune diseases (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis). By improving the overall health of the person (whether or not they knowing had an auto-immune disease) it then helps the person fight off covid-19. However, it is not directly helping the person fight covid-19.

      Below is a link to an article talking about the 3 studies I mentioned. Not linking my own research because there is no way it is better than these three, it’s just another confirmation that it doesn’t help fight off the virus.

    • Ukcatlee
      5:18 pm August 10, 2020 Permalink

      I will listen to doctors rather than flawed studies. There have been plenty of doctors in the middle of this battle that say Hydroxychloriquine works when presented at early detection of sickness.



    • plumloopy
      2:52 pm August 10, 2020 Permalink

      Thank you bigbluebg for the reasoned response. I believe there are FIVE international tests as to the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine and they all came to the same conclusion. The problem is, that doesn’t matter to people just repeating talking points. There is no Big Pharma conspiracy and they’re ALL racing each other for the $ (capitalism).



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      3:31 pm August 10, 2020 Permalink

      bigbluebg, I know a nurse whom I trust who believes it is effective. She has looked at the studies and knows more than me (what to look for in their methodology because of training in stats, etc.). You may be right, but again, there is disagreement even among experts. I appreciate your info though. I’ll try to check out that site but I’m busy and I’ve already wasted enough time on KSR today. lol

      To Chris Gettelfinger INWTTD,

      I respect your opinion. I’m just reporting what I see in the data. No dataset is all encompassing, otherwise we’d just report on results and not need to estimate anything (I’d be out of a job lol). The studies could be wrong, however, it is very unlikely. As I stated before, perhaps there are certain portions of the population that are helped by the drug, but not a large enough group to come across as statistically significant.

      I don’t trust doctors as much as I trust data. Doctors can be biased, bought, and/or have their own agenda, political, financial or something else. To me data can’t lie. I acknowledge that data can be misleading, people can massage data so that it tells the story they want it to tell. Which is why I did my own analysis. But again, you are entitled to your own opinion, I just respectfully disagree.

      Thanks for keeping an open mind and engaging in conversation. I appreciate it, also thank you for your dedication/service as a nurse. I’m a cancer patient and nurses have done sooooo much for me these past 3 years (and currently).

      Shout out to all the nurses, you da real MVP.

      How about the cold hearted medical professionals that refuse to treat the coronavirus until you’re in the hospital. There are treatments available that work and keep you out of the hospital and ICU when given early in the infection. You know, like Tamiflu when you have the flu.

      Huh? What does that have to do with his actual expertise? You called him a computer guy. He’s funded billions of dollars into treatments, programs, and policy based on the actual experts he’s engaged to do that work. He’s a spokesman for many hundreds if not thousands of actual professionals. There is a big difference there. These are not his opinions. They are well researched theories based on quantifiable evidence, experimentation, and results. I can’t even begin to comprehend the inner workings of the minds of these Trumplets that choose to willfully ignore data and evidence. I further can’t understand the mind of someone who can’t comprehend that this isn’t all about you. It’s true, you may not get sick and die. Nothing bad may happen to you. However, there are people dying needlessly because of the willful ignorance and lack of empathy you display. I’m sure the person in this article loses sleep at night thinking of the people that are probably impacted by a trip to an amusement park with an active infection. It costs us nothing to wear a mask (whether it helps or not) and be smart.

    Hate that he is having a rough go with it, but I’m still not wearing a mask for something I have a 98% percent chance of surviving. You can say that you don’t want to be the 2%, but no one does. You people seem to forget that each day you set foot in your car there is a chance you die or get hurt, everyday you swallow the food you eat there is a chance of choking, everyday you take risks with very close to the same odds, and don’t react the same way, so whats the big difference? There isn’t one!! Check the CDC on this one, less that 1 percent of the worlds population has died from this disease. I am not scared of nothing that has a 2 percent chance of killing me, and you shouldn’t be either.

    “big bad MAGA American…” Definitely a Matt Jones insert 😉

    But seriously, I had two different doctors tell me a while back to take zinc and magnesium and it will go a long way in preventing you from getting it…..they also said that if you think you were around someone who had it, to drink something HOT right away and it would kill it before it gets in your system…coffee, tea, or even hot water if that’s all you have

      I have read some good things about zinc and vitamin C to help your immune system overall, but the drinking hot liquids thing sounds sketchy. The virus gets into your nasal passages and lung tissues, so drinking hot liquids would not help with that unless you are snorting it.

It would be my guess that the ones making those comments don’t have their livelihoods and everything they’ve worked for about to go down the tubes because their jobs are being destroyed…and its happening everywhere…everyday. Its easy to sit back and assert what the whole country should do in the midst of a flood when your house sits on a Mountain Top. The reality is, that although the virus is real and potentially deadly in certain cases…those cases are extremely rare….and the information being given to the public is completely skewed. A small portion of the fatalities listed were actually caused by Covid….thats a fact.

    At the end of the day, wearing a mask comes down to being considerate to others. It’s not about catching it yourself – it’s about trying to lessen the chance that you are spreading it around if you happen to be an asymptomatic carrier or perhaps you have it and think you are just dealing with allergies. Maybe the mask makes a significant difference, and maybe it doesn’t, but I look at it as a very minor sacrifice for my fellow man. I’m not worried about not looking cool, or being labeled a sheep by certain people, or the minor discomfort of wearing it – I just want to do what I can to help humanity get past this awful part of our history. I would hope that most other people would feel the same way, but it hurts me to say that a lot of people apparently don’t and that’s just sad.

    My experience too, but I’m 48 and in great shape. I run 3-5 times a week and lift weights and hasn’t missed a day to illness in 6.5 years at my current job. I had left my bed for nearly three weeks, except to drag myself to the bathroom. This illness sucks! Just because you don’t know anyone who’s been affected, doesn’t mean it’s not real.

    You Can Call Me Cal: WELL SAID. Nice to see there is still some intelligence left in this screwed up world. Gives me hope.

    My brother, his wife, and their 15 year old daughter tested positive a month ago. He said it felt a little less worse
    than the flu he had in January. His wife felt less worse than him. Their daughter felt the exact same as if she didn’t have it. After 7-10 days he said he felt 100%. It’s crazy how some people that have had it had such extreme differences in their experience with it.

    I’m 50 yrs old and I tested positive July 30. I got a stuffy nose. I’ve been walking, dong yard work and eating more than ever. Not everybody is a puss. Don’t let a few scare the majority.

    Hopefully you get it so you can tell everyone what a breeze it was, and how it was no big deal that you killed your mother by infecting her, and now have ruined lungs and heart the rest of your life.

    I really do.

    We are so divided as a country on everything. Including this. Have been for like 15 years. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Media is the problem with all of the issues going on. BLM, covid etc. yes this is real and can be deadly. But the information and the numbers aren’t accurate. Can’t be! So we as Americans are left saying , “I don’t know what to believe”.
