I was just diagnosed with Covid-19. It is no joke. I’ve been pretty lucky that my symptoms have been fairly mild but others have warned me that could change pretty quickly. Please wear a mask, socially distance if you can and stay safe, I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.
I have not been on this site much in recent months, and I am so sorry about this. I hope you are feeling better.
Just curious... has anyone here received their vaccine yet? As an educator in Michigan, I was able to receive my first dose last week. Mine was the Moderna vaccine. I didn't have any pain the first few hours but my arm was sore a few hours later and stayed somewhat sore for about 48 hours. I didn't experience any other side effects but I understand the second dose usually results in more side effects.
In Michigan, our daily case count has dropped from 7,500 a day in late November to 1,000 a day this week. Our governor just opened up restaurants to in-person dining after 2 1/2 months (takeout/curbside was still available). Also, high school sports just resumed this past week... apparently, Michigan and Hawaii were the only two states not permitting winter high school sports to play. Most private schools and charter schools are in person or have a hybrid model while most public schools are online but wanting to go in-person soon.
Thank you for all that you do . I haven’t received the vaccine yet. In Canada the general public won’t be able to get the shot until June or July at the earliest.

Coming up on a year now since the stuff hit the fan...I've been extremely fortunate all this time, especially being an essential frontline worker. Me and a good handful of my co-workers were sick in mid-November 2019, but that's been the last big sickness I've had. My immune system has been good, even before COVID; not perfect, but not as vulnerable as many are around me. I seem to have an immunity to the flu; pre-COVID, I'd just get the common cold once, maybe twice a year on average. I have no plans on getting the vaccine. There's still a huge handful of others who need it much more than I do.
Jessica - keep us posted on your health. My thoughts and prayers are with you also.
To those who've lost loved ones during this pandemic, there are no words...but may God (to those who believe) and the passage of time ease your pain. I haven't lost anyone due to COVID, but I'm no stranger to loss.
There appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel. It's been a long tunnel, and it's been a challenge for all of us, having to totally revamp many avenues of our lifestyles.
I was able to get Moderna shot #2 on February 24. The aches and sluggishness were worse this time. Yes, you could say I jumped the queue using a connection. I'm not walking around boasting about it, but there is a sense of relief.
I qualified for the vaccine as of last month. Haven't had any shots yet. I don't want to drive 40+ miles to get it. I am waiting for the vaccine to arrive nearer to me (I would prefer my local pharmacy where I get my flu shots).
