Default Well, it happened

I got the 'rona.

Felt like crap the other night, seems like a medium grade flu. Just blah, and not much energy. Did have some stomach issue, low grade nausea, but managed to get some sleep.

Last night after rehearsal, getting ready for bed and massive wave of nausea comes on, stomach tightening, etc.
Then the cold sweats. Headed to bathroom and fainted out, came to laying on the floor with wifey freaking, saying she can't hold me up.

Got a COVID rapid test, and within about 15 sec the red line for positive lit right up. Grrrrr.

Ok for now, lots of fluids, fruits, supplements. Wish I could find a line on the Ivermectin tablets somewhere... supposedly good for every stage of COVID.

This, sucks.

I'm just reaching the last parts of my COVID experience.

Other than the typical cold/flu symptoms...I had lost my appetite. Ended up sipping on Ensure to get some strength back and calories in my system.

A LOT OF PEOPLE will come down with this Omicron variant; it spreads a lot easier. Fortunately it is less severe than the Delta; but still I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Yah, not sure which variant I have (if any). Mostly chills on/off and some nausea depending on what I'm doing.

I got the J&J vax in April (I'm sure I didn't have anything left in my system, and no booster) when I got this.
Haven't figured out where I was to get it. Or from whom.

Ugh.

I'm pretty much over it with the exception of taste and smell. I have none.

It sucks. I'm pretty sure I had the OG kungflu in Dec 2019 when I visited my little brother in Tacoma. Had me down for about 4 days, but nothing too bad.

Pretty sure I had it around then also, hard to breathe low fever, loss of appetite, zero energy for about a month. Canceled a trip felt so bad. Fairly certain I've had it twice since also.

Less severe the last 2 times though.

OP need get finger O2 dohickey thing a ma bob check your levels. Mine went into low 90s as it flared asthma up.

Hopefully it will come back. Taste came back to about 99%. Smell came back to about 95%.

A buddy of mine can't taste anything sweet.

Friend lost all salt taste... He's a good cook but somebody else has to check salt levels now. Been a year and still gone.

I came down with it on Thursday, it felt just like all the times I had the flu, but I got over it more quickly. Weird thing is, I didnít lose my sense of taste until yesterday.

Oh damn. Forgot about that. Hopefully I don't lose that! One of my few "happy places" left, having good food and drinks with friends!

Same thing here. I was pretty much over it and THEN the taste thing happened.

I got both shots and the booster and I've been really lucky that I haven't been sick at all. Then again, my dog is the only one who can stand to be around me, so I have built-in social distancing.

That said, I'm not taking any chances. I'm staying in when I don't need to be anywhere. No restaurants, bars, night clubs, theaters, concerts, etc. until this blows over. Wearing the mask in crowded places...don't really like it but what the hell.

Oh...I can still play golf...the ultimate social distancing sport.

Hope all get better soon.
