    Ibuprofen is not an antipyretic, comrade.
    Yes it is?

    That really sucks. I wish people would take this more seriously for this reason amongst others.

    Not sure if it helps, but I knew someone with long covid from the first wave (and for the sceptics: healthy, not obese, no comorbidities). She got revalidation therapy and eventually did get back to her old self. What I heard from her was: exercise, but not as you would before. I.e.: it's not about 'building up strength' and 'challenging yourself', it's about very gentle exercise. So if you can find it, perhaps therapy like that could help you too. Hope you'll feel yourself again soon.
    One of my friends got the OG rona, he was a healthy young male, ran marathons as a hobby, took him 9 months to be able to do any running again. Didn't need hospital care at any point during it, just the recovery sucked. He isn't up to running any marathons even now about 1,5 years after.

    That is rough, when i had covid in january 2020 it took me 5/6 or so weeks to get rid of the fatigue. For the rest it was a upper level mild flu tho.

    That, or we found patient zero. This poor person was apparently falsely accused! (Press release to confirm the first Dutch patient with Covid, dated February 27th 2020)

    My profuse apologies, literally never knew NSAID's did that too. Big ups to the boys at Boots I guess.

And this is with a population that had approx 80% double-vaccinated rate (mostly pfizer) when the wave hit and now we are up to ~40% triple vaccination rate.
    And that's why we're all collectively holding our breath.. what does it mean, milder but more infectious? Also, afaik nobody knows for sure what the incidence of long covid is from Omicron. You do not need severe disease progression for long covid to become your companion.

    There are some interesting long covid trials taking place in London you'll probably be eligible to sign up to if you're interested.

    I know a couple of people who are on one looking at anti coagulant drug therapy which has had promising results so far. Loads of interesting implication for future treatment of chronic conditions like fibromyalgia as well.

    I went ice climbing yesterday and was saying to my mate that this approach is more strenuous than i thought it will be. Now i see why that was the case...

    Negative, lateral flowing twice a week for like the last year too (girlfriend is a teacher).

    Triple jabbed like a motherfucker though so perhaps that helps.

    I haven't had Covid yet. Luckily all of my students that got it, got it over a long weekend or breaks. Plus they stay home on the first sign of not feeling well.

    Let's see how long my lucky streak lasts. Can't be much longer.

    Yeah, p. much, the way I see it we'll all be "blessed" at some point or another. As it stands now I'm actually astonished I dodged it for so long as it is.

    As an update I've been having fevers almost constantly since Friday, but they're lower and lower. Still feels like I got an massage from Freyja employing a couple of trees

    I've also not yet had Covid officially, although I had something rather grim in April 2020 that could have been Covid, but I'll have no way of knowing.

    Same here, still no Covid that I know of. Didn't even get a mild sniffle in 2021 and I don't think that is something that I can say about any other year.

    Hold your horses there dude. I'm still in the running for staying negative.

    Although i do feel as if something has kicked the shit out of me for the last year, all LFT's and PCR's are negative thus far.

    Get better/Stay safe all. Hope to see you all continuing to shitpost in the coming years.
