Thanks all for your concern, as I said on the party thread just now, I am not that bad, sense of smell gone, and coughing but nothing serious, back to work monday unless something drastic happens, I am very touched by your thoughts thank you.
You can say that again Jim, it used to be you couldnt find anyone who had it now its completely reversed.
Last year I totally lost my voice - worst in my life. LFT negative.
This year coughs, sneezes, fever two nights running, two LFTs a week apart both negative.
And now it's hayfever season. It's looking as though now is the time for gritting our teeth and herd-immunity, unless we need hospital, even if it would have been a deadly disaster two years ago.
Emily yes we have a box full of the tests, we stocked up, but I have to go back negative or not, as long as I feel ok, I have no choice, they dont care about it being passed to others in this country.
Gordon, my missus came down with it a week ago I tested muself every day for four days, all negative, even thouģh I had all the symptoms, then suddenly whamo, went red even before I put the used stuff in the bin, tested twice since and still the same, I think those testa only register when there is a significant amaount of virus, cant think of any other explanation. Like I said I dont feel that bad really, had worse colds, but saying that I am almost certain I had it originally 2 years back when it was hard to get tested, my chest was really bad for a week, sense of smell gone all the usual, so I may this time already have a natural immunity as well as the many injections I have had.
Dont like the sound of that west nile one, we are bound to get that here next
I have had it at least once before, when it first camre out over here, I had the terrible cough, loss of sense of smell and all that, this was before the vax, and when it was supposedly more deadly, so I may have had some immunity from then as well as having had all the vaccines since, in any case it really did barely affect me at all, I only tested myself because the missus had tested positive otherwise I wouldnt have known I had , had it.
