    I got very very lucky and have been careful with some ill vulnerable people in the family.

    The person and a dose of luck, you never can tell how it hits people (apart from the clinically vulnerable which is obvious). My wife has Covid right now (2nd time, isn't that greedy!). She has very mild asthma well managed by inhaler so never a problem as long as she uses the inhaler every morning, but some other health issues including rheumatological and the Covid has stirred up her asthma and left her unable to manage breathing so on Wednesday she had to make a trip to hospital, although they patched her up with a few days of 2ter0idz (cue predictable jokes ) to calm the lungs. This never happened to her with any cold, but hopefully each infection will get easier?

    She had 2 doses of PZ at start then a PZ booster and maybe 3 weeks ago Moderna? so 4 doses of vaccine total (4th dose is not available in UK unless you meet health criteria or age but is available to quite a few). While I am pro vax as a general principle and supported people being offered (with free choice no compulsion!) the first 2 doses back at the start, at what point do we stop and question the benefit/sides and general efficacy of continuing to vaccinate anyone other than exceptional vulnerable cases.

    I got ill a day after my wife's first symptoms, I was really ill last weekend spent most of the time in bed, blindingly painful headaches, sore throat, hoarse voice, sinus pains, slight tickly cough, upset stomach, very weak and tired, sweaty, a little short of breath, felt very bad -- but LFTs show negative - who knows eh? Monday morning I felt fine, miracle recovery after that weekend, and tested negative so went to the gym squat, ohp pullups, but didn't do the sit-ups or rowing machine intervals (1 min sprint, 1 min recovery, 20 minutes)
    Still not 100% well, yesterday lunchtime suddenly felt ill and had to walk, the worst run I've ever had. I'm not sure if it is Covid or not as if the viral load is low LFT shows negative where PCR would be positive, then again... it might just be a cold

    My point is, illness affects people unpredictably. Probably this thread is split down the middle on partisan grounds
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    "you never can tell how it hits people"
    i have said this from the start, i could never see a clear pattern just a multitude of symptoms.

    " and the Covid has stirred up her asthma and left her unable to manage breathing"
    Scary, and so glad that you got her regulated, whew.

    "at what point do we stop and question the benefit/sides and general efficacy of continuing to vaccinate anyone other than exceptional vulnerable cases."
    A very good question which has prevented me from getting a booster, but with the situation in the DC metro area now, I am am rethinking my prior position.

    "My point is, illness affects people unpredictably. Probably this thread is split down the middle on partisan grounds"
    I never really thought about it from a political standpoint but rather a science perspective and how to end the madness sooner.
    I thought that if we all get on the same page, then maybe we can return to February on 2020, but nope!

    Glad you are feeling close to normal, sorta.

    Closing gyms was the wrong way to handle it.

    I’ve had relatives hospitalized from covid, but these people are unhealthy and don’t exercise.

    Gyms are essential to battle covid, if people are scared to go to the gym, then don’t go. Gubmit was stupid to close gyms, more people ended up pre diabetic because of that decision.

    That’s not public safety.

    Local medical center here advised against going to the gym even though we all know how important it is health wise. But our local gyms weren't closed for a single day.

    I agree. Our gyms were closed for over a year and I tried to workout at home with bands but it wasn't the same.

    Imagine testing negative on Wednesday, then testing positive Sunday and it behaving like a boomerang and returning.
    This is what the gf told me; 11 days so far.

    While I fully respect ones belief to not receive the vaccine (its basic civil rights that should not be infringed upon for any reason)... the shear amount of death and devastation I have seen makes me question the non-vaccinated and certainly not want to be around them or have them on my professional team. The risk is to large and benefit of defying the vaccine request is laughable small.

    Any reaction to the initial shingles shot? My first shot was a motherfukker, the second was nothing.





    In other news

    Even after recovering from Covid, the virus' brutal side effects could linger on, and even develop up to a year after first falling ill, new research suggests.

    The findings from Johns Hopkins University in the US revealed that anyone who's had the virus – however mild, and even those who were asymptomatic – is at higher risk for heart issues in the future. And it seems no one is immune.





    "What we found is that even in people who did not have any heart problems to start with, were athletic, did not have a high BMI, were not obese, did not smoke, did not have kidney disease or diabetes—even in people who were previously healthy and had no risk factors or problems with the heart—Covid-19 affected them in such a way that manifested the higher risk of heart problems than people who did not get Covid-19."

    My first shingles shot was a very sore arm and very mild flu-like symptoms for a day. Second put me in bed for two days. Arm is still very sore, very hard, very red around the injection site 5 days later. Better than getting shingles though

    LMAO yep, much better than shingles.

    I had some serious redness around the injection site as well, it spread and by day 10 it was almost down to my elbow and still spreading. I dropped in to see the pharmacist, she said not to worry until after 14 days, it should be gone by then. She wasn't wrong, it was gone by day 14.. Weird though.

    COVID No Longer 'Pandemic of the Unvaccinated'

    People who had been vaccinated or boosted made up 58% of COVID-19 deaths in August, the analysis showed. The rate has been on the rise: 23% of coronavirus deaths were among vaccinated people in September 2021, and the vaccinated made up 42% of deaths in January and February of this year, the Post reported.

    Yeah, well ephedra alkaloids are actually beta agonists which can trigger SVT in those who are susceptible. In fact, one of the treatments for SVT are beta blockers like metoprolol (which have opposite effects of ephedra). Glad you didn't suffer any damage from it... those episodes can be scary.
