I’m fed up with shielding but as a NIV user dont much fancy catching covid. Is there anyone out there that’s willing to share their story of catching covid and what their treatment was like? I’m triple jabbed and guess could also benefit from home administered antivirals if I test positive. Am I being too cautious? I feel like the balance btn protecting my mental health by getting out and about vs protecting my physical health by shielding is shifting. Anyone else feel the same way?JC172ParticipantPosts: 0Joined: 30/01/2022February 4, 2022 at 12:09 pm #202414Reply To: Living with Covid 19
Can you not take a walk/wheel at night? That’s what I do. I go out into the countryside in my car, with my Staffy. It is so peaceful, only deer, rabbits, and foxes around. I would pound pavements if I lived in a city, I just happen to have a giant MOD training area on my doorstep.February 8, 2022 at 1:05 pm #202416Reply To: Living with Covid 19
ranaid, I think one of the problems is that people tend to join groups on Facebook and maybe WhatsApp. If they want advice they go there, me to I say so sadly. I have posted on here a couple of times asking questions, I think I’m reasonable, but people don’t respond. Maybe they’re going somewhere else as I mentioned maybe they’re busy in other ways. I went on this charities site on Facebook and asked a question it was deleted! So I don’t know why anyone if they’ve had the same experience as me with this charities Facebook page will go there either. It’s very sad.

Ranald I feel the same about social media myself. Hence I would like to see this site develop more. It can only develop if people post and they get responses. A look at the list of those who have signed up to our site shows there is a large number, not just a few as sometimes you may get that opinion.
JC172 I am in the process of recovering from a near fatal covid encounter, and believe me its not pleasant. I have not been vaccinated on the advice of my GP as apparently he cannot predict the outcome. Without it the outcome was huge weight loss, hallucinations, hospital stay , becoming type 1 diabetic and so many other things I cannot tell yiu, and possibly cannot remember through the brain fog. You can never be too cautious with this nasty little bug. I spent a good deal of time inside before I got ill and it still did not stop me getting it. I can understand how you feel about going out, it can affect you. I remember when can from hospital, as soon as I could walk, I went for a walk in the garden. Just a few steps, but the fresh air and the greenery way just so amazing to experience.
But I have kept myself busy at home since discharge. Apart from a bit of reading I have been rep/airing the damage my absence created (I have had to restart my weather station which I run, but I am struggling to remember how I did it), I build model aircraft, I am teaching my self to fly on a simulator and many other things. What I am trying to say is keep the brain challenged and it will help you no end. You may already be doing that, but there are always new things to challenge you. Currently my main challenge is getting back to where I was before I got covid. You do not need that challenge in your life believe me. Do everything you can to keep it away.
So many love songs, so little love.embayweatherModeratorPosts: 8Joined: 02/11/2015
