are you vaccinated and is it severe?
Doesn't get bad til around day 8... un vaccinated.
Interesting it's still drifting around... I know of people whom got it not long ago and died... unvaccinated. I know of some whove got it again and again... vacced.2
I haven’t had it yet, wearing a KN95 mask everywhere, mostly avoiding public areas and staying away from friends after they attend public events/areas has helped to stay covid-free so far. But I’m travelling to Wellington for Easter Weekend so I know I’ll be much more at risk compared to staying in my town 😬15
I *may* have just finally had if a few weeks ago. Really just a cough that lasted a week and a half or so. Only a day or two where I really felt sick and had some hot and cold flashes. May have been something else though, not sure. If I ever had it before that, I didn't get any symptoms.10
What Girls & Guys Said
Our immune systems were designed to become stronger through exposure. Thus those who think that hiding away is going to help are going against nature. Thus you are only weakening your immune system and lessening it's ability to function correctly. I've no idea how people have forgotten decades of logic. More oxygen is also key to killing any viruses and yet people think masking up and using KN95 is going to help. The COVID tests aren't tests either, they are designed to do something else, as is the 'vaccine'.16
Oh wow. yeah i had it last month and this is way after when i was still driving out to deliver food and working at a home depot before a vaccine ever came out. somehow i managed to not get it during that time.
Well get plenty of rest, drink lots of water. if you lose your taste or smell don't worry mine came back maybe a week after i tested negative again.14
Fully vaccinated and been extremely careful, wearing a mask and gloves pretty much everywhere. I've had it four times. One of those times was late 2019 early 2020 before people talked about it. That was my most severe time having it. Couldn't breathe. Was working as a barista and lost my job after being extremely sick for 7 days. The other three times were all pretty severe too, but I could breathe at least. Only time my sense of taste disappeared was last time, which was in January this year.0
I've never gotten it. I'm not high risk though. I don't go out a lot these days. Plus I've always had a good immune system. For example I think I've only gotten one cold in the last 25 years or so. Even when I was still working in an office surrounded by people with colds, I never got them. I guess I'm lucky. Some people get sick all the time. That would suck.0
I had January 2022's Omicron strain. Hit like meningitis, then turned into imitation Parkinson's, then began to feel like dementia. Then turned into satyriasis, then a respiratory infection, weird sweats, horrific chills, weakness, and then I finally got over it.
Long covid gave me 9 terrible months of hyer-reactive skin, resulting in getting hives often for seemingly no reason. I became allergic to almost everything, including oats and dog fur. I'm slowly returning to normal.0
Officially I haven’t caught it yet but during the second wave my whole family caught a bad cold which lasted for 3 days so I’m not sure if I had any experience with the virus or if it was common cold. Anyway try taking all the medication for recovery and have ginger tea everyday.10
I had it and honestly I've had colds that were worse. Really the only thing that sucked about it or that was annoying was how weak it made my body physically as far as moving around went but I recovered from that overtime as well.10
I haven’t had it. Still wear a mask everywhere though and avoid people cause my oldest daughter got it at her dads and it almost took her out. Her lungs are fucked up so it wouldn’t be good if she got it again. Hope you feel better soon🖤10
Yeah last year March or it was the prior year, I'm not sure, I had it once and it wasn't bad for me, just had a sore throat for a few days11
I’m sorry you’ve caught C19. That virus is vicious. I’ve had it twice. I caught it for the first time in March 2020. I still have unexplained lingering side effects from the first infect that haven’t resolved.0
I haven't had it, not for lack of listening to the news. I don't wear the masks they tell me, I wear the one I want. Not for corona... because people just stink. Aaand still just fine. So thank god for that.0
I've has it at least once, maybe twice. When I had it the first time, it trailed me with symptoms for more than two months. It only emerged when I had a companion septic UTI two years ago. Praise G0d that I am still above the ground.0
Not yet but I’m sure I’ve had it, maybe just asymptomatic? Scared of it though, heard some horror stories but most of my fam has been lucky somehow. Fingers crossed it stays that way!0
Same here... I have had all my shots and been fairly careful and just got it last week. Uggg to go three years without it and then get it kinda sucks.0
You probably had it but we’re immune so didn’t get symptoms before. I had it when it was new the only thing I had was lose of smell so I wouldn’t have even noticed if my husband hadn’t bought me perfume at the same time.0
I got hit in December for the first time. Lucky enough it didn’t hit me too hard. But still hard enough I didn’t make it home for Christmas.0
Had it but it was no worse than the normal flu. It just lasted longer. Other than that, no lasting ill effects.0
I got it last year , was home for 5 days only.2
I got it every year... probably caught it this year as well, but nobody testing for it anymore0
I still haven't had it. I go everywhere without a mask these days. Malls, gas stations, restaurants, public transport during peak times, you name it. Just lucky not to encounter it yet.
Haven't had a vax in over a year now too.0
I cannot say for certain if I've had it yet but I don't think so.
My friends and family have all caught it at one point or another and I've been around some of them while they were infected, but I've never had symptoms of any kind.
I took care of my nephew when my sisters household all got infected because both her and her husband were essentially taken out of commission for over a week while you know kids... hyperactive little shits whether they're sick or not.
Knock on wood; I don't get sick. It's been over a decade.
