Husband and I both had it.  Like a really bad cold, I'm mildly asthmatic and it made me a bit wheezy but that meant slightly more use of my inhalers.  Has taken time to get appetite and energy levels back to normal.  We've both had 3 jabs.

I'm not sure what I expected it to be but it wasn't too bad but I assume that was partly because of being jabbed

Yes some people have already had it, I was speaking to a committee member yesterday & her son who is vulnerable has had a 4th jab. Rather that than the alternative for me, thank you.

We may have had it. Both of us felt off-colour for about 3 days, I had a persistent headache too. Neither of us felt bad enough to think Covid and we weren't going anywhere so didn't take a test. Wish we had as I'd be a lot more comfortable knowing where I stand.

I've had a couple of 'heavy' colds, with aches and pains, but the LFTs said they weren't Covid.
So who knows  :wacko:

It's a shame there isn't some simple test that you could take to tell you if you've had it and are pretty much immune. At least the Omicron variant isn't as pathogenic so somewhat less worrying.

If you have had your jabs, your anti-body status would register from that so I think it it would be hard to say whether you had natural anti-bodies on top. I guess either would work, so it would not really matter  :)

The last wave (Omicron) was getting almost everyone, so you would have been hard pressed to miss it.  If you came through with just the normal winter off colour type bug symptoms, I would chalk that up as a positive and unless you have been told otherwise by the doctor, get out and enjoy the spring and summer as much as you can.  You know the old saying - 'gather your rosebuds while you may, the plague may strike again at any day'  ;)  :lol:

OH tested positive on PCR while testing negative on lateral flow last year and had no symptoms whatsoever, so make of that what you will  :wacko:

Early on in the pandemic I was selected by the NHS to take part in an antibody response trial, to see how/if the first round of vaccines were working. They involved dripping a blood sample onto something similar to a diabetic glucose test unit. So yes there are tests, you'd think they'd make them more available than they are

Yep, tested positive with PCR and flow test. Real heavy cold like symptoms.

No (touch wood). 
Same for Mrs. SubP and son 1 / son 2.  (touch wood 3 more times).

I tested one time, negative.  We have vaccinated and boosted whenever it's been recommended and will continue to do so.  Also, we are regular mask-wearers in public places.

Fortunately, the desk I'm chained to while "teleworking" is made of wood, so I can touch wood all day long.
Gardening is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.

Neither myself nor Mrs Hog have succumbed thus far.
However we are on full alert as son in law came down with it Saturday and grandson was positive by LFT today. They live in our village so we see them regularly.
Son in law is pretty rough but Grandson is bouncing around like tigger. Supposed to go up north this week so fingers crossed we dont have it!!
Not sure they should have lifted all the constraints and stopped free LFTs. Agree that we need to get back to a new normal but we also need to be vigilant.
Keep digging

When his parents got it, my 8 yr old grandson was a bit subdued for half a day. :)
