Sorry to hear of a second time with that virus. Our family had it early, one passed but every one else came through fine. We also had the issue here where people at risk could not get the shot and younger folks did. That sucks. We know how it shuts down the entire family. We also know that the more they vax the fewer get it so hopefully this will pass quick for you and will be your last time. Of family and friends totalling maybe 30 people (I quit counting) , with all the vaxing going on here in Oklahoma, we do not know one person who has gotten it since late January. We were having 50-89 people dying per day in this state about the first of the year after the Christmas travel season. Today is is very few, under 20 most days, so it is nearing control, We are getting a few increases probably due to spring break but by the end of April the numbers should be very low and lots more people will be vaccinated. Hope your area does the same. Best of luck getting through it.Put myself and wife on a waiting list a week or so ago, still waiting for an appointment to get the shot.
Think I have caught it a second time, same symptoms as last time, just not as bad.
Fever of 102.But took some day quill and fevers is less and I was able to get to work tonight.
Just kinda realized what it might be when I lost my appetite and other symptoms, hit me about 2 hrs ago.Just trying to make it till 5 am and get home to bed. Can not afford not to stay and work, this time. Used up my families first last time when Myself and the whole family got it.
Not too worried as to exposing anyone. If I have it it, is to late for the family, they have it. The 2 people I will be in contact with, tonight, have already been vaccinated.
You'd think , being an overweight 55 year old diabetic, with respiratory issues, and rheumatoid arthritis. I would have been able to get the shot before the two healthy, under 30 fellows, that I work with. But apparently I do not live in the right zip code???
One of them is going to clean the lab after I leave just so no one else will get it. Just in case that is what I have.
I do not think I will get tested as I cannot afford a week, or more off with no pay. I can keep it down low next week (It is only a 3 day week for me and all of my work will be in the lab). Just have the company restrict who is allowed in the lab. We had a manager get sick and just stayed in his office with the door open, everybody just had to talk to him from the hall. And no one could touch his physical paper work till the next day.
Hopefully its just a normal bug and I will wake up fin tomorrow.
We are already down 1 fellow in the lab, so If I do not show they would literally have to shut down half of production, for a shift.
Wish I could work from home, but need to be here to run spectrometers, melting pots, and the milling machine.
