…..life is a sort of game of chance with various doors and windows continuously opening and closing....
My wife and I were early sufferers, March last year, sadly my wife of 40 years did not survive.I still suffer with Long Covid.
I've had it, my sister and her partner had it, a fair few of my relatives have had it, both my housemates have had it, and lots of my students have had it also
It is a bit worrying as we seem to be hell bent on getting people to catch it whilst we are dosed up a la vaccine. 1 in 45 people in Scotland last week. This pathogen hasen't even seen it's second anniversary. God knows what long term prognosis is.
I'm the only person in my work, aside from visitors, that actually wears a mask. Many anti-vaxxers and conspiraloons. Yes, I'm interviewing elsewhere.This winter is going to be messy. People seem to think because they don't like it/ignore it/the government gives up, that it's actually gone away.

This pathogen hasen't even seen it's second anniversary. God knows what long term prognosis is.1200 scientists wrote to the Lancet stating that the government (re. "Freedom Day") had a "murderous" policy of "herd immunity through mass infection". The people of this country are still being encouraged to believe that vaccination protects from infection and prevents transmission which it does not to the extent they believe. The vaccines reduce the severity of symptoms in infected people but not for all. As for "double jabbed" and "fully vaccinated" and the consequence of people ceasing to wear masks or take other precautions this only adds to the current levels of misunderstanding and overall chaos.
Can’t be sure it was C19 but my wife had all the symptoms November/December 2019 before it had been recognised as being in UK.Incessant cough, sore throat, fever, fatigue, breathlessness etc which lasted about 8 weeks in total.After trying various over the counter remedies and ventolin inhalers which had very little effect we finally forced her to see the GP who after a thorough assessment in the surgery sent us to A&E where she spent the day on oxygen plus intravenous antibiotics & steroids before being discharged that same evening.My daughter & I thought we were coming down with a cold at the time as we both had a mild cough and sore throat for a couple of days but that’s as bad as we got so whether it was a mild dose is anyone’s guess.Suspect if it was Covid the wife picked it up at work as she was working in a pub at the time where a couple of the regular customers had been to the rugby World Cup in Japan just prior to her getting unwell.
I have heard that from a LOT of people complaining of feeling unwell but somehow different. I also felt Bloody awful in Jan 20 just before it was announced saying to my wife " I don't know what's up with me It's not a cold and not influenza but I feel dreadful " There was a case also revealed in France in the July of 19 way before it was common knowledge
