    Hi kjkj77

    Sorry you got the two red lines. Do you have any underlying medical conditions? If you do, make sure you pay attention to your stats, hopefully you will be asymptomatic and not feel unwell. It's a great positive attitude you have, thank you for sharing.

    It's unfortunate to miss the bbq/pizza day and puppies! Who doesn't love puppies ☺️ Hopefully you will be back to the bbq/pizza and puppies in no time. If you get bored whilst isolating, you can keep us here on the forum entertain with your positive banter ☺️

    Get well soon!

    Hi kjkj77,

    Sorry you got Covid, but You have a great attitude about it.

    I got it late January and too thought that it was almost inevitable that I would get it and January around Australia Day was a good a time as any as we were on annual leave.

    It would be great to hear how you are feeling 

    I am trying to be more active before Winter hits and hope that I get less sick, if I get Covid again.

    stay Well 🙏🏼

    Hi Fiatlux

    Its coming up a week now. The (covid ) infection seems to be progressing normally like a seasonal flu. (At this stage).

    The hardest thing is the self isolation. I have a lovely park just around the corner and its frustrating not being able to get out and go for a walk.

    I miss coffee from the local cafe. Its driving me nuts. Making a plunger coffee at home is just not the same.

    My energy levels really fluctuate. Some days Im good and are getting light chores done, other days I have low energy and get nothing much done.

    A video whats app call with some friends yesterday was really good to do.

    Im anxious that this covid / flu I have will linger on and develop into a chesty cough.

    Another variant, another surge, & like so many, I am tired of it, too. It saddens & angers me, & I feel despair.

    That's just what I feel. I'm doing what I've been doing all along, as if there is no way out & forward through this. To challenge what I'm doing, means accepting more risk of becoming infected. I'm debating in my mind whether the reason for seeing my Ophthalmologist is worth the risk, considering that the practice is fairly large, many paitents, Doctors, Nurses & reception staff.

    I still can't wear a mask, so I'll take the shield, (but I really think these are inadequate), but it will not be practical during an eye examination.

    I have asked my helper to assist me, & do a RAT before we go ... I'm still nervous she will do the test properly. That will only reassure the practice I am COVID negative, nothing more.

    I'll be vigilant for a week after, I suppose, & isolating myself - just in case! Practically, I'm not changing anything I've been doing already.

    It's just the frustrated desire to get out more, again, to regain some of the confidence I have lost about going out & feeling I can manage my safety when I do. The longer this goes on, the more difficult it will be to feel I can confidently walk around in public spaces on my own, as I once did.

    Ride the turbulence, eh? Isn't that what we need to do? Grumble all we like, while we strap in & hold tight anyway.

    Hi mmMeKitty

    I feel exactly the same! Two and a half years of home isolation is eating me away day by day. It's very hard because for the past couple of years we're told to stay indoors and only go out if necessary, now we're being told there are no restrictions and we need to learn to 'live with COVID', it's very hard to go from two years of shielding then suddenly change your mindset to go about life as per 'normal' . There's not much difference to two years ago, case numbers are still high, more infectious variants are circulating and COVID safe measures have been relaxed.

    What pains me is that there are so many healthy people that just keep saying, get on with it because fortunately they came out of COVID with merely flu like symptoms and recovered, but for those unfortunate souls that are vulnerable to COVID we can't just think like that, it would be foolish.

    It saddens me to hear you are evaluating your risks to see an opthamologist. I'm supposed to see a cardiologist but too afraid to go to hospital. I'm also supposed to see an exercise physio but have refrained because I don't like my chances going into a busy practice. Not to mention, I have also delayed seeing my dentist, there's no way to wear a mask to get your teeth cleaned.

    It's so sad because it's the vulnerable people that need to see health professionals most but are too afraid or anxious due to the risks of getting COVID. I can't imagine what our health system will be like because vulnerable people will have exacerbated health issues due to not seeing their health professionals on time.

    On the other hand, I'm really trying to learn how to live with COVID, I too fear the longer I shield myself the harder it will be to do simple things like walk to local shops to pick up milk or pick up a parcel from the post office.

    Every week I'm trying to push myself as much as I can tolerate. I get so scared because no one else is wearing a mask anymore or even trying to social distance but I just have to keep telling myself, that I can only do my best and can't worry about things that I have no control over, just focus on what I can control.

    Really unfortunate you can't wear a mask. I know it might be useless but I wonder if it helps to wear some kind of bib over your face like a veil? (I'm thinking Arabian Nights... It won't protect from airbourne but maybe larger particles? I really don't know what I would do if I was in your situation and can only sympathise.

    Hope things get better for you!

    Hello & thank you, Bunny Rabbit.

    I try to keep up with the most recent info, but that has become more difficult to do. I'm not spending nearly as much time looking for the info as I did for the first year, year & half ... & realised that was causing me more stress than it was relieving. I got the basics, have decided pretty much to do what I can, which does mean limitting my exposure to crowded & enclosed places, because of the problem with masks.

    While I might wear something much thinner & looser, or even a fce shield, these things are not a suitable substitution for a proper mask.

    I can imagine if I did wear something else, just for show, or because maybe I would feel more socially comfortable with something over my face, I could inadvertently attract unwanted attention.

    There's a lot to be said for thinking about what we can control. Trying to assess relative risk, then doing what we can to maintain our usual lives where we can. Your attitude seems very sensible to me.

    I suppose, good things coming from this are: learning more about how to manage my anxiety & learning that I do actually need people, at least to some extent, sometimes. & recently, I have learned how to use (at the most basic level) Face Time to talk to my PDr. Now if someone else wants to Face Time call me, I could oblige.😸

    Hi mmMeKitty

    I think most people that care about their health will do the best they can to protect themselves. It's just the parts we can't control that cause me anxiety mostly. i.e. being vulnerable to COVID, I didn't choose to be vulnerable, it's just unfortunate but the pressure from society can be debilitating at times ... I want to be part of society but I'm conscious I'm not an equal when it comes to health. If a healthy person gets COVID they probably won't die or get really sick, if I get COVID chances are much higher for a bad outcome. But for society, there is no balance, I went to pharmacy to get some medication, did my best to stay away from people but there was one guy that was literally breathing down my neck in the queue to pay, I asked him to give me some distance because I'm vulnerable to COVID and he just gave me a really dirty look and took one step back but he was still less than a metre from me. It was really frightening for me but I guess this is part of 'living with COVID' there will be plenty of people that don't understand how hard it is for vulnerable people.

    I too have stopped scouring the internet for COVID news, for one part it also made me more anxious and in other parts the news I've noticed has really been watered down to a point where it doesn't add value. Just focusing on things that can improve my current situation, such as improve my health, work out alternative solutions to risky situations.

    That's pretty cool you're upping your game on technology! Well Done! 😁 My mum who used to be computer illiterate is now teaching me how to find things on YouTube, it's pretty funny what she looks for online. Some things I would never expect her to research but if anything, COVID has taught her the limitless bounds of internet 😁

    Hi BunnyRabbit,

    I'm finding things on YouTube too. Mostly audiobooks. It's can be difficult to find complete books or series. & I hate ads! But that's something to put up with unless I find posts of gold lying around, & subscribe to everything which promises no ads. (& give over all my valuable data).

    My main problem in crowded places is the people, especially those who do not respect the 1.5 metres. Alone, I struggle to keep track of where people are, because of my vision. There seem to be a fairly high percentage of people who don't understand what it means, when someone uses a white cane. They don't seem to comprehend that it means I might not see them. Or, worse, seem not to care & wilfully move closer, as if it won't matter if either of us has COVID-19.

    Even my helper is not as conscientious about as I'd prefer.

    I too, am one of the vulnerable people, & not being able to wear a mask has really messed up the idea that I could get through all this okay.

    I also am doing online food shopping. I have issues with some aspects, but manage to get most of what I want. I think I ought to do some this evening, too. A few too many things I'm running very low on. Even going into the local supermarket by myself & locating what I want takes so much time, so I haven't done that for two years, by myself.

    I begin to wonder if I will feel independent ever again.

    *

    Gotta get to my bikkies. My place smells so nice & friendly warm when I do a bit of baking. I am discovering I like to cook such treats for myself. 😺

    Hi mmMeKitty

    I'm so sorry you're doing it especially tough during the pandemic. I find it hard enough being unable to drive so need to rely on hubby to do all the shopping. I used to catch a bus or get an uber but both those options are so risky.

    Unable to wear a mask must be so hard, as it's pretty much the only protective gear we've been told to use. Unless like in your case you are unable to wear a mask, I don't understand why people can't put one on to reduce the number of infections going around or to protect the vulnerable people in our society, especially for those that can't wear a mask.

    I really feel for you, when people don't try to look after the vulnerable. It's a bit hard to miss a person walking with a cane. I have a disdain for people that think what they're doing is more important or above anyone else, thus putting someone else at risk for them is justified. I've seen it happen so often, like you say, they might ignore that you are visually impaired and instead of being patient or considerate, they decide to 'overtake' and ignore any social distancing so they can go about their own life faster. It's pretty horrible, but I see it too often. I've been hit with a shopping trolley a few times, because they were in a rush.

    Some of the positives being homebound means you don't need to interact with horrid people, stay at home and bake cookies and complain about how much ads are on YouTube 😁 I watched one clip the other day, it was 5mins long and it had an ad every minute that went for 30 seconds each time! The worst part was, they didn't even give you the skip option, but you're right, subscriptions are becoming so costly, will almost have to sell your first born soon to keep up with it all!

    I do most my shopping online too, but I have a very shy postie, most my deliveries he doesn't even try to deliver my goods, he just puts a card in my box saying he tried to deliver but I wasn't home, so I have to pick it up from the post office, ironic that I'm homebound, makes you wonder...

    I wouldn't say I have it so bad.

    I live alone, & I have not been so close to any family to be so concerned over, not so many friends, & those I thought were from the writers' group seemed to have pretty much melted away when our group ceased meeting near the beginning of 2020. I don't have kids to worry over, to look after during these lockdowns we've had. No grand parents, or other rellies. I don't have a job to get to or figure out if I could do it from home. & mostly I am okay with being alone.

    I am relying on helpers, one for in the home (little flat), & one for outings, including going to the GP & sometimes Pharmacy (I've had them deliver sometimes, too.) My local grocery shop is a small shopping complex, which has a roofed over area in the middle, which does not fully enclose all the shops. So, going there has been a better option at times.

    Early on, I wasn't comfortable using cabs or buses. I have been trying to be sure my helper could take me to my PDr, if he can see patients in his rooms, again. Certainly while medical practices of any kind are required to have people wear masks while there, my PDr cannot have the in person consultations. Gov is requiring that the consultations my PDr offers to have a video component. Or I could have shorter voice calls only... I don't want shorter times with him. That would be too difficult.

    I do what I can to meet this 'compromise', as I see it. FaceTime at least allows him to see me! For me, seeing him on screen makes little difference - as he could really be anyone! I don't see gestures, or facial expressions, not on my phone's screen. 😸 I'm not so comfortable with him seeing me, though.

    We know, so when I am uncomfortable, that is something to talk about.

    I don't want to spend time & energy fighting every change & restriction. I feel the need to adapt, to make the best of what I can do.

    I know how lucky I am... being a solitary person. I haven't had so much upheaval & worry as many others.

    I am able to research & find reliable info from qualified sources, which has informed my decisions about the ways I can cope with this ongoing pandemic. It does get more difficult, every time another varient arises, then when another surge in cases, & waiting to find out how severe ..it's so tough, it could wear down Mary Poppins.

    Im really struggling. I tested positive and I've only been in isolation for two days but its so hard.

    I'm not allowed to hug my parents or even be in the same room as them without a mask on.

    The body aches and nausea are driving me insane and no medication helps.

    If anyone has any tips of how yo get through, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Gambit,

    As I tell lots of people, drink more water, & you can have soups, but not too hot, I guess. All that sweating, you can get dehydrated. & even if you are too uncomfortable to sleep, try to get lots of rest.

    &, as I said on the other thread, if you think you need more support, call your GP.

    😸Talk here, too, as you like.

    Personally, I wouldn't stop listening to books or music. Or do anything to help make the hours slip by, while I am distracted. Time really does seem to go by more quickly when you are busy.

    Thank you for your advice mmMekitty!

    Ive taken yesterday and today off from work, thinking about calling the gp tomorrow so I can maybe have the rest of the week. I just hate not feeling productive but I acknowledge I need to take some time to rest.

    movie marathon today i think.

    Rest is vital to recover quickly so take time off from workuntil you feel better even if you can work from home. My DIL & son both caught it from their 10yr old before he was able to get vaxxed. My SIL had almost no symptoms whereas DIL was exhausted and took much longer to recover. Both triple vaxed. Only difference was the sick kids want their mum rather than their dad at night to cuddle them and look after them. this meant she was more tired and got less rest making it harder to recover. Of course they all fully recovered with no after effects.

    For those like Me Kitty who are worried about Covid due to being vulnerable I think you need to do whatever is reasonable & in your power to protect yourself including being fully vaxxed and wearing a mask if possible in crowded areas and avoiding crowds as far as possible.

    The other thing to consider is avoiding things which really matter to you to avoid covid makes life rather pointless. This particularly applies to avoiding important appointments with health professionals. The risk of long term poor quality of life is too high compared to the risk of covid complications.

    If you have a support worker make sure you are clear on what you want them to do including protecting you by warning you of people being too close for safety.

    I think there should be better information re how to 'live' with covid for those of us who are vulnerable or are caring for or working with vulnerable people to help us make the best choices to live a meaningful life while remaining as safe as possible.

    Today i was met with a very stressful situation. I will just discuss the relevent details to this thread. Yesterday I took hsb to ED as his condition was deteriorating. Nurse did a pcr as a precautio. While also doing the other tests needed to deal with problem. He was later admitted to a ward for treatment and investigation not covid related. Late last night got a text saying he had covid. This morning rang hospital for an update and then asked re covid . i was told there was an error He was _ve. This was later confirmed by other staff members ringing me to discuss hsb treatment. I then recieved another govt message with instructions on what to do andwarnings of consequences of not isolating as a close contact. I rang the number I was given to clarify situation to then spend several hours on the phone being passed from one to the other or getting cut off. In the meantime Im also fielding urgent calls from the hospital requesting info re my hsb and his complex needs. Eventually spoke to someone who checked his results and confirmed there had been a clerical errorin submitting his results as pos when they were neg. I then asked if that meant I was now free from isolation as I was no longer a close contact to be told no I had to wait for someone else to remove his name from the records. It was meant to be escalated so i would get confirmation in an hour. 12 hours later Im still waiting. I accept mistakes can occur but it seems wrong that it can't be fixed quickly and leads to so much stress when you try to do the right thing to check conflicting info. Ive got enough to deal with without hsving to contact people hsb had seen recently then contacting them to say he's not pos but still no official info to confirm he was actually neg.

    Hi Elizabeth CP,

    Outrageous - & even if I wanted, I don't think I could've come up with such a mess... makes me wonder how many other people are going through something similar?

    It must've been so exhausting for you, too.

    Hope some virtual hugs for both of you help a little.

    *

    & I get what you are saying about protecting myself as much as possible - it's that I don't have real control over others, if they aren't so mindful.

    I did get a third dose, given my diagnosis of breast cancer last November, so I had it before I went into surgery. I wonder about whether or not I could/should get a fourth? & for the flu? Since I am not going out much, once a week one or to two places, maybe three if we're quick... how much risk is that?

    I'm going to have to talk to my GP again, about what's ahead for this year, what might be best.

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😺

    Thanks MMMekitty, Yes a disaster. I wonder how many others get incorrect results but don't know so after isolating they think they are safe for a few months because they've been infected but they haven't or people getting neg results and not isolating when they are infectious. I don't understand why there isn't a simple way for someone to fix things when they have made a mistake. We only knew about the error because he was in hospital and so they got the conflicting results from their lab and could check but most people can't do that. Still haven't had confirmation from the dept that it has been sorted.

    Fresh air flow dilutes any nasties and blows them away so where possible socialise outside or have windows open when possible to reduce risk. this applies to any potential infections which could be lurking. My hsb is blind and vulnerable due to medical issues so family support workers and friends are aware of his risks so are extra cautious and won't come near if there is any chance they could be sick with anything. Anyone I'm not sure will be as careful as I'd like are only seen outside where we can spread out if we really need to see them.

    Hi Geoff

    I got all three, felt like crap for about three days after each injection but afterwards didn't feel any different to the usual.

    Same for the rest of my extended family members (we have several vulnerable people in our family so our whole extended family decided to take all three to keep the vulnerable ones safe), some didn't even feel unwell initially, just sore arm for a couple of days, otherwise we all went back to normal self afterwards, no complaints of any different aches and pains we don't usually have.

    Hope that helps

    I have had all three shots. It was imperative for me to have them as I live and work with vulnerable people and also was compulsory for me to resume work post lockdown.

    My first shot I was tired and rundown for a day. maybe a day and a half, before completely returning to normal.

    Second shot was a non event, did not have any effects at all.

    Booster knocked me around for a day or two, then completely back to normal. Had it on a Friday to minimise disruption for work, returned to work after shot, but the effects kicked in during the evening. I would of had a day or two off if it was earlier in the week.

    Life is almost normal for me now, back at work 4 days a week with the 4th day split over two days (Thurs and Fri mornings). I like having the heavy load in the first half of the week, then the taper off at the end. Having renovations at home and the less time spent at home, the better!!!

    Hi rx,

    I followed this thread a lot during our lockdowns and saw you as a frequent contributor to the discussions. I liked your openness and matter-of-fact way of describing things.

    I checked in recently and saw you hadn't been here for a little while and wondered if you were ok. Then I saw your April 2022 post and, even though I don't know you, I felt happy to see that you had popped in :)

    Hope you're well and are having a nice week.

    Hi Guest_342

    You are spot on where RX is concerned. He is a senior contributor on the forums and always speaks from the heart

    RX has a couple of current threads on the forums..I am sure he would appreciate your super kind thoughts. Just have a look see/search and you will find him.

    my kind thoughts

    Paul

    Oh, Covid strikes again and again.

    I had a terrible time with Covid in January.

    Since then I had a third booster.

    So, Monday a rep from another Co. pops into my office for a catch up. The rep is triple vaxxed too.

    This morning I get a call that this rep has tested positive for Covid and will be off work for 2 weeks recovering.

    We all scrapped mask wearing and now I sit and wait in limbo.

    Seems like we have to do our own contact tracing now too.

    I honestly don’t know what to do anymore. I am at work and can’t afford to get sick again. I am just barely making enough money to just keep myself afloat.

    This pandemic isn’t over yet!
