Ive been missing the last few weeks... well after avoiding it for the last couple of years, we finally got it. My wife works in a nursery, so close contact with the kids is impossible to avoid. This is how we eventually contracted it. :help:

We self isolated, as per advice, we weren't too worried, we had our jabs and boosters,

She was ill for one night and felt tired, for a couple of weeks.

I caught it as soon as she was infection free. Bad luck, as I was looking after her in the bedroom. We tried self isolating within the household as we have two kids that live here too.

No worries, Leanne was not too bad I thought... Unfortunately it hit me much harder, I was actually surprised as I believed the government line that with your boosters etc. It should be like a bad cold. Yeah, some cold, for a full two weeks I lost most of the feeling in my hands, blinding headaches, pain all over, bad breathing, loss of smell. The wife phoned an ambulance at one point as I was getting worse by the minute, but as I live so remote, this would have been a air ambulance, so I refused to go. I really don't like helicopters. This was a few weeks ago, and I am much better now, still with weak hands though and still wheezy when I take a breath.

God this thing was sent by the devil.

Kids managed to avoid it though.

Any ways, I hope you guys are well and keep up with your boosters, thats probably what saved my bacon!  :D

You will eventually get back in shape. IdidnĀ“t get it yet (so I think) but my brother and his family did get it, nothing too hard.
A few people around me died of it or complications after it and some got really really bad, like a 3 months getting back to normal.
I hope you recover super fast.

Thanks Erico, strangest bug I've ever had. I mean, I'm over it, not infectious and yet it's still affecting me weeks later, weird!  :giveup:

Good to hear your brother didn't get hit too hard though.

this sux. i hope you and your family recover   :happy:
hard times .....


I still resist with Covid ... here in Italy it is recovering a bit, let's hope for the best.
Come on Bigofty comes back stronger than before especially with GLB.  :good:
