Have you had Covid?

Fortunately I haven't, as far as I'm aware. Have you, and what was it like?

I thought I did when I had a period of a high temperature but the test returned negative thankfully. Read stories of people who've taken ages to get back to some sort normal fitness.

I haven't had it yet, although I knew like 6 or 7 who have.

This year has been so insane, makes me sad that this site isn't active anymore.

I also know quite a few who have, mostly people at work. It's a bit worrying as I work in a hospital now (fortunately not a patient-facing role) but when the first wave happened here in the UK loads of my colleagues became ill with it. I managed to escape it, but now we're seeing a second wave here and I fear it's a matter of time for me.

Thankfully I'm still young-ish and don't have any underlying health conditions, but if these stories about lasting heart/lung damage are true then it does make me a little worried.

I've been tested for it a couple of times, but I've never had it thankfully. I never thought I had it, but I have had to take some hospital appointments for an existing condition, and they have to take precautions with incoming patients. The test kinda sucks, but the plus is that it only lasts a few seconds.

Trying to get regular medical treatment during the pandemic can be pretty frustrating and confusing here, so I feel really bad for anyone in America who is going through anything right now. I'd imagine the situation over there is much worse.

I've not even been tested for it yet, but I've also been locked down pretty well since the pandemic started. Only seen friends a couple times in small outdoor settings.

With winter coming, it's probably going to get a lot worse, so I'm sure a test is in my future at some point. But at the moment I hardly see anyone or go anywhere (fml) so yeah.

Remember socialising? That was wild, wasn't it?

I work from home full time since the pandemic broke, which actually suits me fine, but it's a bit weird spending the day in your pyjamas and putting on jeans for the first time at 7pm so you can pop out to the shops to get some milk. Times are weird.

I had it, yeah. My Mum came out of retirement as a Nurse this year to help with the added demand placed on the NHS so our bubble were kind of expecting it at some point or other. I had one sweaty, headachey, sleepless night but other than that it was largely symptomless.

I’ve since given convalescent plasma to try and help others. The hope is that I’ll have a high antibody level but I’ve not had the results back yet.

Thankfully I haven't. But I'm not going to lie, I also took the last half of the year off. More for a change of scenery from my last job. But in that, I've become quite the hermit. Not that I'm complaining lol.
