I have usually kept up with masking and social distancing to avoid the covid virus. But my friend came over the other day to bring an item he had bought for me and we sat around and talked a bit. both unmasked. yesterday i tested positive for the covid virus. now isolating and waiting to see how things turn out

I hope it doesn't get too bad for you. Omicron is reported to be milder than earlier strains like the delta that I had.

Pretty sure I have had both and the Delta was a lot worse, almost as bad as the worst flu I have ever had, and the Omicron was more comparable to a bad head cold with a sore throat.

I think the rule is that whoever gives you COVID owes you a beer. Does Montana still have Summer Honey in the summer? (That was my summer beer when I lived there.) I think your friend owes you a few of those to help with isolating.  cool.gif

Hmm, I don't know...

(I should probably add a disclaimer for people who think I'm actually serious.)

Hope for a speedy recovery, regardless.

^ I can assure you, sir, as one who appreciates a good Cabernet, from my own personal experience, that is complete nonsense.

On the bright side, near death experiences have a tendency to cause one to re-evaluate life choices and values.
(Probably why I have so many people here and other forums on ignore now.)

Hope things go well for you there, CD.

The question of whether the Omicron strain causes milder disease is lost in the noise because of rising immunity due to prior infection and vaccination, coupled with such a wide variation in personal response.  While it is possible to include these factors in calculations, they add enough uncertainty that strong conclusions are just not possible.  Too many variables changing too fast.

In CJ's case - since he has been forthright about being unvaxxed - we would expect his second case to be milder than his first regardless of strain due to having some immunity, and that is certainly a far more important factor than strain.  He is lucky to have survived this particular bout of ...well, whatever it is that kept him from being vaxxed:

All that being said, the first person known to have been re-infected - both cases prior to availability of vaccine - had a mild first case and died from the second infection.

Yes, but repeated COVID exposure increases the risk of developing long-term health problems.

so far this infection has been mild, slight headache, a bit of fog, sinus blockage but very little breathing problems beyond my normal copd. 18 more days til I make 75 years. wondering where all the time went!

my ten day quarantine period is over and I feel fine. Never had much problem beyond my normal copd. So I believe my being vaccinated/boosted might have contributed to a mild case.
