I believe many people thought we’d ‘overwhelmed’ Covid. We did every part by the e book, took each precaution and revered all of the mandates. When the vaccines and boosters rolled out, we breathed a sigh of (wholesome) breath that we’d been spared from that scary + signal. After which that d*ck omicron confirmed up and was all, “Who’s you Daddy?” It appears Omi can get to anybody, like Dr. Fauci, and now Buffy. Sarah Michelle Gellar posted that she, too, caught Covid after efficiently avoiding it for 2 and a half years. And it hasn’t been enjoyable, both. Sarah is vaxxed and boosted, which has saved her out of the hospital, however Omi nonetheless kicked her butt.
Lots of SMG’s associates jumped on her feedback. Amanda Kloots, with whom SMG talked about the effects of the pandemic on children final yr, hoped she feels higher quickly. My coronary heart still goes out to Amanda. Charisma Carpenter and Selma Blair each despatched their love. And whereas I’m positive it was good to receive love from Brenda Track, Reese Witherspoon and Dule Hill, my guess is SMG posted this not for sympathy however as a cautionary story. As she identified, loads of persons are nonetheless scripting this off as “only a dangerous chilly” and there are not any ensures the place Covid is anxious. I’m positive SMG didn’t anticipate to get the virus and she or he definitely didn’t anticipate for it to take her down. And like Dave Navarro said, simply because an individual will get a unfavorable check, that doesn’t imply the results of Covid go away.
I do know we’re preaching to the choir #OnHere, however I’ll reiterate every part that CB, Kaiser, Peridot, Dr. Fauci and now SMG have stated – please don’t take this variant with no consideration. Age, preexisting situations, the pressure you contract – all of it impacts how sick you get. And “pre-existing” doesn’t must imply COPD or some large medical difficulty. Bronchial asthma, allergy symptoms, dormant bronchitis, acid reflux disorder, and many others. could be triggered. My son (17) introduced Covid house from college. He was sick for 3 days. He examined unfavorable on the seventh day however remains to be coughing. My daughter (15) acquired it after my son and I did. She has bronchial asthma and acid reflux disorder however was asymptomatic. She examined unfavorable on the fifth day, by no means as soon as struggling (besides that she acquired her interval throughout and cramps laid her out). My expertise is nearer to SMG. I’ve been sick. At day eight I’m nonetheless very a lot optimistic and have signs, though they’ve lessened significantly. It’s painful, of us. There have been moments it felt like an all-over flu-like ache, however others like a Shingles every-nerve-ending-has-been-triggered ache. There are chilly signs however they’re along with different points. I’m drained on a regular basis, like being pregnant drained. My dangerous signs come again at evening however they differ. One evening it’s a headache, one evening it’s tingling, one evening its continuous sneezing or coughing, one-night strep throat like ache. There was half a day that I felt like I had a brick on my chest, and it scared the hell out of me. Like SMG, I’m not on the lookout for sympathy (I name my mother day by day for that), I’m attempting to scare you. I’m vaxxed, boosted and carrying a masks in every single place however it nonetheless acquired me so please: Be secure and Keep alert.
And throw a pie at my silly husband who’s STILL testing unfavorable.
