Hopefully you'll be right as rain soon - meanwhile, take it easy and pamper yourself.

Tested positive yesterday.  No symptoms except for a ghastly headache, wouldn't have tested except friend at the plot said that was her only symptom earlier in the year .

Oh, thats not very nice.  I wonder how you got that, are we becoming complacent now and dropping out guard.    I still wear my mask in any shops etc.    Take care, hope you feel better soon.   regards,  Mrs Bouquet

Feet up at the moment, desperately thirsty but headache has eased. 

Still wearing mask when I'm in the shops, can't imagine going in one without it.  Husband clear so far.

Got the thing at Christmas after a family gathering, along with my wife and son. I was the only one of us that tested positive but we all had the same symptoms. Weird. Two weeks of misery followed, like a bad student hangover without the headache, if that makes sense. None of the traditional cold and flu symptoms, though; not even a sniffle.
Five months later I'm still not right and being investigated for long Covid, with horrible neurological disturbances, brain fog and periods of zero energy so complete that all thought and activity cease, like someone took out my batteries. It comes and goes, but the periods of abeyance are getting longer and the crappy parts are getting shorter - about half-and-half at the moment. It's a bind, but it's a vast improvement on 2 good days in a whole month, which is how it was in the beginning. Onwards and upwards!

Couldn't resist the cheap shot, eh? How predictable.

You know the problem with forums is that you only get a small portion of the communication. Body language and facial expressions etc. A jest can come over as an attack when that's not the intention.
Hope your long covid goes away soon Rob

That's what emoticons are for, John. Considering the subject matter and the profound suffering that many are going through it seemed a little crass. Thanks for your good wishes though; bless you, kind sir.

Sorry to hear of yet more people getting the dreaded covid. Hope you recover soon.
One point to remember on masks is that unless they are serious medical standard masks theory is you are protecting others not mainly yourself. I still wear a mask in shops but try to avoid the unmasked breathing all over me! I must say it wouldn’t harm to have maintained the masking rule for shops a bit longer. The current situation is that those of us still wary of Covid are protecting others but many appear oblivious to the continued risks. As far as I can see the incidence of infection is greatly reduced but not eliminated.
Keep digging

I feel exhausted, having a shower meant  I had a snooze to recuperate.  Can't shift the headache but still so thirsty.

The thing is, it is doesn't look as if it is going to be eliminated, we will have to learn to live with it, perhaps with a winter booster like older people have for 'ordinary' flu.

Mumofstig you are right, it will be an annual booster along with the flu jab.  BUT if it helps us stay healthy it will be worth it.

Just as I am starting to feel better my hypochondriac husband has  tested positive.  His will be the worst case ever that does not require admission to hospital!  The dog and I may very well relocate to the greenhouse.
