Sorry to hear that, I actually don't know anyone who has tested positive recently. I had it a few months back, felt horrendous the first day and was fine after that. Feel better soon fella

First day is like recovering from your first session in the gym after a year out. Once you get passed that it quickly disappears. I washed our 3 cars on the second day and cleared out the gutters. Sitting around just makes you feel worse, unless you really are on deaths door.

I’m more concerned about passing it to my wife or son, but that makes perfect sense about sitting around.

My girlfriend tested positive again recently as did a quite a few of her colleagues. Didn't last long this time though, she was bed ridden for 2 days and then fine. Get better soon.

It's absolutely rife down here again. Quite a few friends have got it again and I stay well clear. Just because the Government aren't reminding people anymore doesn't mean it's gone away. Glad I'm triple jabbed but I still don't want to catch it.

Yeah, I started feeling like **** on Tues eve. Tested +ve yesterday. My first time after 2.5 years of swerving it / triple jabbed. Seems to be a few colleagues picking it up again.

Have the full suite of symptoms except no loss of taste/smell. Haven't eaten for two days...thought turns my stomach.

On the positive, I've dropped a few lbs, saving on the bog roll and it's not polio....

Grim, get well soon mate.

Despite the absence of the level of reporting we used to see… those that know, confirm this is another wave, likely BA.4 and BA.5 flavours, and many believe the platty jubs weekend didn’t help. As posted elsewhere, I binned an event I‘ve not missed in over 20 years. Many friends went, and now many friends are ill. I went to a gig at the beginning of May, first since the plague hit. As far as I could see I was the only person wearing a decent mask, and I was ok.

Without kicking off a debate, please look after yourselves and each other, it ain’t gone away.
The other concern is whether the current upsurge gives opportunity for another nasty version. I hope not.

Tested positive on Monday after a trip to Dublin with the Tartan Army, 5 of us came back with it. Second time I've had it, Its about to explode again. So many people I know have had or have it recently.

I've got it too. I think my Dad brought it over from Germany where they still have a really high number of cases. I felt fine the first day and then it hit me like a ton of bricks the second night. Every symptom except loss of taste and smell, it's like having a cold and the flu at the same time. I felt better the second day but still occasional pangs of symptoms, the cough comes and goes, as does the fatigue/nausea/aches. I don't think being triple jabbed has made a blind bit of difference to me. My whole family is triple jabbed and we all picked it up with minimal contact and I don't think my immune system is doing any better at fighting it. I just don't think the antibody response lasts long enough in these vaccines.

It's pretty horrible for the first couple of days, but the majority recover really quickly, you'll probably feel a lot better for the weekend

Germany have already confirmed mask wearing will be compulsory through winter in public places. I will have no issues wearing one and social distancing if needed. I've still not even had a cold in two years.

Had it back in April, only one jab, felt shivery for a couple of days but otherwise fine, slight loss of taste for 2-3 days which came back as fast as it went, was like a taste overload when it came back lol.

Wife got it the week after, and is triple jabbed and was worse than me, and for longer, and 2 months later still has no taste back :(

FFS, I really hate wearing those things, it’s bliss at the moment.

Weirdly, I still have a full appetite (although I've never really had a strong urge to eat) and am eating a similar amount to what I eat when in perfect health. But I don't feel well enough to exercise especially in this heat with shivers/sweating bouts.. I could be the first person in history to catch covid and gain weight!

Ah the good old scamdemic! Fook me are we paying for this now!!
I don’t know anyone still testing let alone saying they have it.
FTR had it twice last year, had worse ear ache to be honest.

It won't become a requirement over here again, thankfully. And if it did 90% of people will ignore it, having lived normally for the last 6 months.

People are more concerned (and rightly so) with other stuff now, such as the war, and the prospect of heating their homes through winter and putting food on the table.
