Nearly 4 weeks after contracting COVID-19 I am finally able to return to work…
Yes I have had both Jabs (my 2nd dose was back in June), and this knocked me for six. I spent most of the time in bed, and only started to get up and about 10 days ago.
I passed this on to both my wife and daughter (my wife has also been double jabbed), fortunately they didn’t get it as bad as me and have been back at work / school for the last week. I also passed it on to a friend at the UK Debian BBQ, hosted once again by Sledge and Randombird, before I started showing symptoms. Fortunately (after a lot of PCR tests for attendees) it doesn’t look like I passed it to anyone else
I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.
I went on holiday back in August (still in England) thinking that having both jabs we would be fine. We stayed in self catering accommodation and we spent our time outside, we visited open air museums, walked around gardens etc, however we did eat out in relatively empty pubs and restaurants.
And yes we did all have face masks on when we went indoors (although obviously we removed them whilst eating).
I guess that is when I caught this, but have no idea exactly when or where.
Even after vaccination, it is still possible to both catch and spread this virus. Fortunately having been vaccinated my resulting illness was (statistically) less bad than it would otherwise have been.
I dread to think how bad I would have been if I had not already been vaccinated, I suspect that I would have ended up in ICU. I am still very tired, and have been told it may take many more weeks to get back to my former self. Other than being overweight, prior to this I have been in good health.
If you are reading this and have NOT yet had a vaccine and one is available for you, please, please get it done.
