    That sucks, hoping you can get some sort of relief/remedy that starts working for you.

    Have you asked or discussed about the vaccination? It apparently does not keep you from contracting it, but it helps hinder the symptoms of it. Wondering if a post vaccination for those who have been infected has had any sort of relief for those that have continued/lasting effects?

    Similar to a Shingles/Chicken Pox variant.

    Lastly **** China and many of the Asian leading counterparts eating slugs/snails/reptiles while also collecting bacteria from other marsupials/mammals/reptiles/livestock/family pets/wild animals/dinosaur DNA/Livestock/Forum Members/etc... to conduct testing on.

    Well, the first day of being on Prednisone is amazing. I have not had this much energy since last Fall! I hope it is enough to suppress my immune system from overreacting to the Covid and let my body get back to doing its normal when I quit it in 10 days. I fixed breakfast, banged out a bunch of things at my desk at work and put down all new baseboard in a new office for my wife over my lunch hour! And I still have energy to go for hours. I think I might have a little understanding now how meth-heads roll. :evilgrin::nana:

    Wife had her first vacination round on Saturday. Once she has the second one I will be a whole lot less stressed. So I've got that going for me.

    Better than the first, she had Moderna.

    Arm really sore for her, headaches and really tired for two days. After two days she's was fine

    My wife's second shot was nothing compared to the first dose.

    The studies now seem to be focused on optimizing duration between doses and longevity /need for annual vaccination...

    Annual vaccination? I have a hard time believing any of these pharmaceutical companies bc so much money is on the line.

    Id put it at about 2:1, the pharma companies studies (initially) indicate annual vaccinations are needed...maybe for a few years... Then presto a new study shows 1 and done.

    Yeah, they are already developing/planning for fall boosters.

    I feel like the first dose is going to effective for most, but the question will be is there any noticeable decline in antibodies over time with one shot compared to the two shot dosing.
