coworker's mother in law came to visit and was clearly sick when she arrived. she swore up and down it was just the flu (we don't want that either!) and they finally get a swab up her nose and of course it comes back positive. she starts yelling about how she couldn't possibly have caught it since her roommate has been in the hospital (what for? dying of covid). the finally force her out but him, his wife, and their three kids all got it

whoops, turns out that the colleague who we all thought was very covid conscious since she's wearing a mask in the office was actually wearing a mask because she's sick and still wanted to come to the office to get that cool in person presence bonus my boss set up.

i don't think anyone is ready to revisit the argument i had with them about the definition of perverse incentives, though

I finally caught it in December. hosed up my holiday plans good. Symptoms weren't that bad honestly, no coughing or shortness of breath or lung issues or anything, but had a pretty decent fever for a couple of days, 39,5 celsius at the highest. couple days after the fever died down I lost my sense of smell, which lasted for a week or two. That was the scariest part for me tbh. I would get very depressed if I lost my sense of smell. Thankfully it came back fully.

I don't feel like this is some moral failure or anything but I also could have done without. I'm not at all happy to have "gotten it over with" or whatever trite bullshit people say to make themselves feel better.

fortunately modern society has developed something called a "vaccine", that gives you all the immunity benefits of having caught and recovered from an illness without having to suffer through it or experience any of the long-term side effects

I hear the vaccines are so good they actually give superior protection than getting sick a bunch of times! but I also hear they give you early onset parkinsons but only when a cell camera is pointed at you. not sure who to believe because both sides are dumb

depends if you're talking about protection against infection or protection against (severe) disease. against infection the protection diminishes after a couple months but against disease we don't know the limit yet. years.

cjs: boss is advocating to make my position fully remote again, aside from having to come in for meetings here and there (still dumb). Iím only there partially on Wednesdays and even then maybe two or three out of the month. officially on she and i share the lovely little annex thatís in an entirely different building than the main department so weíre both wtf-int at the whole situation.

she likes to maintain more of a physical presence because sheís at departmental leadership level but she also fully understands that i can do my jorb just fine remote. so dumb.

Living the Dream
My elderly, high-risk parents caught it and were okay, and I was exposed to it visiting them before they bothered to self-test and I didn't catch it. However, one of my relatives that was visiting with me DID catch it.

As far as basically everyone I know in real life, anyone who caught it after vaccination mostly had symptoms ranging from a cold to a pretty regular flu (fever, muscle aches especially lately, cough) and were fine afterward.

Both people I knew who were unvaccinated before they caught it got way, way hosed up. One is probably going to have to get a lung transplant.

yeah, mine was somewhere between cold and flu for like a day. the rest of the time it was pretty much like a cold. i have no doubt it wouldíve hosed me up royal if I hadnít been up on my jabs.

i was vaxed but i had a 103 fever for like 4 days and things like sitting up for 30 minutes straight were exhausting. i guess i got omicron before the omicron boosters were out or something, im not really sure. i just know it tucked me up real good. no lingering effects as far as i know though

i had it very early on before vaxes were available and it was pretty awful

certainly the most sick i've ever felt in my life. lungs still hurt every now and then and i'll probably need emergency albuterol for the rest of my life :cool:

Cycling is one of the few healthy things in life that gives me pleasure and if I got hosed up and couldn't cycle anymore it would really mess with my quality of life.

i really liked biking but i'm still so wary of biking alone ever since i broke a vertebrae from a car hitting me

it really sucks but i just do not trust being on the road with cars anymore. The only cardio exercise i actually enjoyed doing, too
