Have you had it?

After dealing with COVID for as long as we have I'm wondering how many people have had it and how have you been after having it? *Side note this is not a debate about weather you should or should not be vaccinated*

My husband and I just recently had it I am vaccinated (not be choice that's another story) my husband is not. He felt like he had the flu for two days and then felt great and as of now only has a small cough that lingers. Me on the other hand was knocked on my butt for a week felt like a horrible flu. Did not have any major breathing problems. Low grade fever and a nasty cough. I also lost my smell and taste. After almost two weeks of being better I find that I still get short of breath and very tired very quick. Its the smell and taste that is still kinda odd. I can small something but not much and I'm starting to taste things again but only about half the things I eat I can taste. Like I love peanut butter M&M's I cant taste the chocolate but not the peanut butter it is very odd.

Did anyone else lose smell and/or taste and how long did it take to go fully back to normal? I hope anyone who did have it is now healthy and stays that way.

Also is there anyone who has gotten lucky and not had it?

My parents and I had it (my dad and I had the booster) - work related too.

So, from ourselves and few we have talked about who had the vaccines, "second COVID" will have side effects of diarrhea, fatigue, muscle aches, fever, chills. So, what I meant was if you had COVID, that 1st vaccine dose will be symptomatic, and if you have not had COVID, that 2nd vaccine dose cause symptoms. (We all had COVID back 12/2020 ?)

Glad to see you have recovered well! That loss of taste and smells is also happening to few of the patients I have come across. That loss of taste and smell can take months to years to recover partially or to a fuller extent! :hug:

It may depend on the variants and the exposure or contact with certain work  type or school area or affected population. Because I'm sure there are many who has never had the vaccines at all or not going for the booster and who have been well!

(I did lose my grandpa and few loved ones recently to COVID, but that was in the birth country, a developing country and politics). :'(

When I got my vaccine both shots made me soooo sick so I wont get the booster. I was not going to get it in the first place as I knew I would get sick as I get sick from most vaccines I have had. I was a bit jelly of my husband that I went though that whole prosses of getting the shot and he did not and he was only sick for 2 days lol. He is very much a baby when he is sick so glad it did not last long on him. I slept for 4 days before I felt like even getting up to get food. Thank goodness for my husband he took good care of me.

Im sorry you lost loved ones I know so many people did. I had an uncle pass from it and pneumonia. My bio dad had it and was told he recovered for the most part but passed a couple weeks later due to his own non self care with other things.

Always good to have a caring significant other and someone you can consult with (or make fun of for being a sissy fruit cup being all sicky icky from shots  :P  ) That's great he was well the whole process! And ya, vaccines are reasonably for the high risks and prevent the worst symptoms, but regular or healthier ones, mix results. Plus "herd immunity" was all needed, not all, just 70-90% depending on the type of pandemic.

For me, night chills and bone aches of 1-2 days was the most symptoms, and maybe a low grade fever. I treated myself conservatively with vitamin C, vitamin D + fish oil, zinc, and multivitamins and cycling  :skipping:

Sorry for your loss as well. I kept noticing about the COVID 2nd wave to be the significant effector. Recovery and 2-3 weeks later,  :-\  But all in good hands or whichever you want to believe of Goodness. For my grandpa and others, back home, country is at the verge of war or return of military regime, so many sad news and tragedies as is. "RIP but in safe place" so to speak!
