Infirmary Thread #18: Keep Your Social Distance!

Even wilder and wackier than pre-crash Miscellaneous, the survivors talk about the weather, puppies, work, and coffee.

Yeah, and I don't get them as often as I used to. By the end of my time at BMC, I was getting them two or three times a week.

I hope you continue to feel better.

Do you think it's caused by allergies?

My right knee has been steadily improving until this past Sunday, when it got a little sore and swollen after golfing. I'm planning on going out again to hit golf balls which is probably a mistake. But I'm thinking this may just be the "new normal". What I'll do different this time is ice my knee as soon as I get home.

I think this time it was just caused by the weather. There can also be a stress component, which is why I used to get them frequently at BMC.

Not as often. I'm trying to wean myself off her. But I'll likely visit her once a month for maintenance.

I had a sinus headache. It wore on me all day, I went to bed at 7pm. Bru woke me up to let him outside, at 11:30pm. I'm going back to bed in a bit.

When I woke up this morning, my needlepoint... er, jab spot... um, place where the vaccine goes in... was very painful, and I had some mild aches and chills. Unfortunately it didn't stop there. By about 1oclock I felt like I was 90 years old. I logged out of work early and laid down for a few hours. I still feel like a wreck, but I think the chills are over. My Sister had a similar nasty reaction, but she had nausea, too.

Good God. I'm sorry to hear this. Sounds like you've mutated into a sick, stiff, achy elderly man. :no:

these jabs can be lethal....its why i am so against being 'expected' to have them - EVERYBODY should make up their own mind whether to have a jab or not - we shouldnt be forced into doing so. there is no way i feel the jabs are safe - i only had one to satisfy my best friend, otherwie it woud have been a fat NO WAY. (i simply dont trust western medicine - and dont wnt poisons injected into my healthy body)

I am sorry you felt lousy, yesterday, RJ. It just means the vaccine is doing what it is supposed to do...building up your immunity to COVID. It is much better to have a day feeling unwell, than having the virus. I have seen what the virus does to people, and the long term effects of having it. It is not good.

The injection site is a bit sore this morning, but mostly when I raise my arm. Might have a touch of fatigue.

Well, vaccines have saved hundreds of millions of lives from deadly diseases, and saved millions more from the crippling effects of diseases like Polio, over the past two hundred years, so I feel there's plenty of evidence to go with Western medicine on this one.

I agree. A little misery is a small price to pay to be safe and make society safer.

This morning, I could barely raise my left arm above my chest. Now I can get it above my head with only a twinge.

The most concerning part is that they injected your right arm :lol:

Injection site is better this morning.

So to compensate I punctured my right thumb while trying to dig a rock up.

It sounds like Lupy is having the same kind of reaction I did.

And I agree with Cayla. Your reaction, RJ, proves you have a robust immune system. :thumbsup:
