You're going to INTENTIONALLY expose yourself to a disease on the hope that it doesn't render you hospitalized/permanently injured/dead just so that you can "get on with things" ...
Why don't you ask people who got West Nile whether or not being exposed was a good idea. Or talk to any of the survivors. Here's a link to a famous one (for some degrees of famous): Georges Laraque.
Seriously. Don't be dumb. Don't intentionally get a virus that could PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR LUNGS AND IMPACT YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE.
