This past week slipped by rather quickly. I didn't feel mostly back to normal till Thursday...and then was exhausted from feeling "sick" for six days so rested up for a couple more days--LOL! That's normal for me, though.
Did find out online that having a strong reaction to the vaccine is a really positive thing. That means my immune system is better than I thought it was! Hurray! It said that younger people usually had more reaction due to the fact they had healthier immune systems and seniors tended to have less reaction to the shots. So for the first time I was really glad I felt like crap--ROFL!
It wasn't that bad--but definitely knocked me back, shall we say. Was in my pajamas for days and even just threw clean ones on after I showered--LOL! Of course my having no spoons doesn't take much, as you know. I was pleasantly surprised my immune system was in overdrive and working hard for six days. Who knew? So if you have a flu-like reaction and a sore arm that feels like there's a softball under your skin--well, congrats!
I will just figure after I get the second one that I will be in my pajamas again for a week--LOL! I have my appointment with Dr. Kessler exactly a week after my second shot is scheduled so I hope I will be okay to make it there. They say you can have a stronger reaction the second time, so we'll see. All worth every minute of crummy time in my book. This nearly 70 year old is very happy to be getting the vaccine.
When I was laid up for days Annie was enthralled with Bridgerton...
