The Covid Party

My invitation to join the Covid Party arrived after being lost in the post for the last two years. Perhaps I’d bragged too many times about dodging the Covid bullet or perhaps I’d gone to one too many post-Covid get-togethers including an all-staff meeting in the office sans masks where half the office tested positive in the days following. Either way, my invitation finally arrived as I tested positive and had my first taste of Covid 19 in 2022.

The first day I thought it was hayfever except I don’t get hayfever anymore so I assumed the supercold had returned. Then, due to go into the office, I stuck the old Q-tip up my nose and did a lateral flow test thinking it was nothing. After that, things happened very quickly. By Thursday afternoon I shut my laptop and decided I couldn’t go on.

Two days later, after a temperature, brain fog, exhaustion, coughing and sneezing, I felt almost normal. I’ll test again in a few days time to see if I can go into the office but I think I’m over the worst of it. It wasn’t that bad.

If I wasn’t vaccinated, would it have been worse? Hard to say but I wouldn’t fancy finding out!
