    Default I think it got me?

    Two years since this thing started, not a sniffle. Iíve been both vaxed and boosted. Always wearing a mask, washing hands blah blah blah. Other than being at work, Iím home.

    Last night we had a significant snowfall and winter storm. I went out to clean the car off after work and got this massive chill! Violently shaking, teeth chattering, the whole bit. I quickly moved my car by the door and let it warm up and finished up closing the bowling center. The chill subsided.

    I got home and our bedroom was the typical 6 degrees my wife annoyingly enjoys. As usual I was a freaking popsicle. I closed the cracked open window but left her fan on. Under an extra blanket on my side, I resorted to curling up around a heating pad.

    Today I did not get up on my own which is very unusual. She woke me up two hours later than normal. I came down for my coffee, took a couple sips and said ďIím laying back down.Ē That never happens. Watching the clock I decided Iíd take a hot shower to see if I was just cold from the igloo we live in. Holy crap when I got out I was shivering so hard, I could have been a human house paint mixer!

    Took my temp, yep Iím sick! 100.9. Grrr! I hate microorganisms! Canít go back to work until I get Covid clean test. Getting tested tomorrow so I should know if this is Covid or simple flu. Then again, is it even possible to have flu not show up as Covid anymore? Get shot in the brain, itís Covid. Break your finger, itís Covid. I hate this crap! 🤬

    yeah. Lots of people I know are feeling sick right now. Daughter-in-law just took an off the shelf test this morning cause she was feeling sick and came back negative. She tried to get in for a PCR test but can't get an appointment before Wednesday and she is pregnant. I have felt sick since 11/10

    I went in and got tested, just waiting on results. Still got the on / off fever, slight cough, dehydrated and just about every joint in my body feels like someone poured sand in them. Other than that I feel great!

    Just drinking lots of tea, taking Tylenol and musinex and sleeping a ton. I haven't really left my bedroom much since yesterday morning.

    Made it the same 2 years with nothing, and bam, got it last week. This after getting all my shots as well. From what we're being told, it's now no longer a matter of if, but when you'll get it.

    I think at some point all of us will get it eventually. A co-worker who weighs about 450lbs said he hadn't left his apartment in 4 months (we work from home). Has groceries delivered, etc. And he got it last year. Only thing he can figure was the person that dropped off his groceries left it on the bag.
    Just have to be as careful as you can. Just IM'd another co-worker to ask him about a server and he said he is out with COVID.

    Confirmed. SARS 2 Positive 🤬 Whatever that means. Obviously it's Covid. I don't know what strain it is.

    I am actually feeling better than I did the other day. Fever is gone, still have some joint pain, a little congested and a little tired. Basically a flu, I've had much much worse. Only differences is I can't go back to work until at least a week from Thursday. This is BS! I get it but this sucks!

    I can help but to think that the bowling gods are conspiring against me to keep me off the lanes.

    Yeah I had it this past April. Had a bad headache for 1/2 a day and was shivering and teeth chattering for a day. Woke up the next morning with no headache but still felt weak and worn out. Called off work and went back to bed and a few hours later felt fine. That was Tuesday. Wednesday afternoon started feeling it again then got tested Thursday. Got the results back Saturday but felt fine by then but stayed home until quarantine was up. Only missed that one day of work but I work from home. Wife had to miss 2 weeks as she tested positive too. I probably had it again after that but didn't know it. I haven't felt 100% since 11/10. My daughter-in-law wasn't feeling good over the weekend and is pregnant. She called her Dr and they told her to get tested but nobody could test her until tomorrow so my son drove around trying to find an over the counter rapid test but they were all sold out too. Finally found one 30 miles away and it came back negative thankfully. Hope this stuff disappears soon.

    This stuff isn't going anywhere, that's the reality. It's just getting milder than it started out and more contagious. It won't be the big deal it is now in 10 years but I don't see that it will be eradicated. Just another PITA to deal with as a human. Hopefully we'll find better and less intrusive ways of dealing with it sooner than later.
