Anyone currently positive?



Tiny faint line on routine test Wednesday.
Had a mild headache Wednesday and dry mouth but that's it, and I'm high risk.
Still got the faintest of lines today and dry mouth (but that's not unsual for me)
 
Tested positive for the first time on Friday after our lass had tested positive Tuesday morning.

I've literally slept 40 out of the last 48 hours. Physically battered and keep waking up like I've been in a car crash! Heads absolutely stotting and have the worst cough / throat.

How long exactly can I expect to feel like this for? Start my new job tomorrow and this is exactly what I had hoped to avoid.
 
So here's my experience

I felt a bit iffy on Monday 24th October and properly grotty the day after when I got my first positive. By Friday 28th I was pretty much back to normal. So 3 days of feeling rough. This is after 4 jabs.
Mrs Dinsdale developed the same symptom pattern about 24 hours after, so she felt bad by Wednesday 26th October. She has only just started to feel an improvement today, 7 days of feeling rough with much worse symptoms (full loss of taste/smell, swollen glands, non stop nausea, the old thruppenny bits). She is on 3 jabs.

A bit anecdotal of course, but for one household there's your difference between 3 and 4 jabs.

I'm a 3 jabber.

I posted on here 20th that I was rough. Bed bound for two days and groggy as hell for another three. I tested negative a good 8 days ago or so but still not back to normal. Very tired and lethargic and headaches.

I wish I'd had one more recently.
 
Anyone had the symptom of having an absolutely disgusting smell 24/7 after losing their sense of smell completely?

Tested positive a week ago, lost my sense of smell on Tuesday night and ever since mid day yesterday I've developed what can only be described as a rotting flesh smell in my nose. Can't shift it at all and it's knocking me sick!

Anyone know if this is a temporary thing or am I likely to be lumped with it for a canny while?

Negative on test but Missus positive and I had all the symptoms Sunday through to yesterday. Migraines with aura, banging headache, constant tiredness, aching joints.
Will test again today. 4th jab 2 weeks ago.

Opps.... I thought the question was about how the team was going 😀

Just put $200 on Stewart leading goal scorer he's paying 20/1 and only 3 goals behind the leader Akpom, and hes no threat. (Stewart obviously miles in front if you look at goals per minute)

Positively great bet 😉

I've had 4 jabs and I'm 70 in April.

Caught covid in May while on my visit to UK/France (maybe at the Playoff Final or my last day at Spitalfields market).

Didn't feel all unwell and was really surprised at my positive mandatory test on arrival back in New Zealand. Had to isolate for a week of course and my wife and son tested positive next couple of days BUT all three of us had no ill effects and we all just stayed home drinking the bottles of duty free I had bought 🤣🤣
