It’s real

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:02 am

Somehow by sheer luck alone I had managed to avoid getting Covid since the the very beginning. Even when my husband and #2 son had Covid last year we managed to isolate both well enough that I did catch Covid. But last week that all changed for me. I got Covid.

Fortunately I waited long enough to get Covid that getting Paxlovid was not difficult and, probably, made my symptoms a lot milder than they would have been.

It took a whole seven days for me to test negative from Covid which was not as fast as my son last year, but way faster than my husband who needed the full 10 days plus he had a bit of a rebound which was a drag.

Anyway, all this is to say, probably best to be careful out there folks. While the medicine is great, it’s still not fun to be sick and, potentially, pass Covid on to other folks.


  1. not to mention the impact of long COVID on one’s life.

  2. Glad you feel better, but remember this?

    “ You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.”

  3. I wish a complete healing. I no longer wish for “speedy” one, take all the time you need to fully recover.

    And, thank you for the work you do. Alameda is a better place because of it.

  4. I got the booster and I finally got COVIDs, but I didn’t have a bad case, just a bit of congestion and tiredness, most likely because I had all the shots I didn’t get an extreme case. Some people have post-COVID results that they still carry. My sister’s hearing in one ear has never been the same, I person I know had extreme nerve damage and will be disabled for the rest of her life, and there are others as well. It’s still a deadly disease, affecting the way we live. but we can still move forward living an awesome life. Wash your hands live healthy (exercise, food, sleep, meditation), get the medicine (my opinion), and use common sense.

  5. I think you left a word out? “..we managed to isolate both well enough that I did catch Covid..”
