I've had it twice. Once at the very beginning, second time last month. Second time was the "worst", with the Delta variant. Had a fever and felt extremely tired. I have heart issues and lung issues, so I do lose energy fast. I experienced it as a good flu, same for my wife. I'm not vaccinated, so the good thing is that I've got a recovery certificate and now can go everywhere again for the next 6 months.

My wife's uncle is 73, and wasn't as lucky. Two vaccinationd and ended up in a coma for 17 days. Now he has a long recovery ahead of him. My sister in law and her husband are also vaccinated, and they were ill for a good 2 weeks. It's all a bit luck.

I know I did my part in not spreading corona, but the government decided to extend its 2 weeks ad infinitum anyway. Who could have predicted that when they said "2 weeks", that they would break their promise? The government would never misrepresent themselves. There must be a valid explanation, and I think you are onto it. I look forward to the next time I that I can blindly trust a group of power hungry people that treat constituents like currency and fodder.

Kind of the sad reality of this topic. Instead of simple answers, you get anti-vaxxors making garbage claims vs people doing their best to debunk them.

Well of course not, considering your general attitude, it's not because you choose to ignore what's actually going on around you and refuse to look into the subject more and just take the droll the government gives out, nope, it's because you believe in the science like a good sheep model citizen that you are.
Who truly are the sheep?

Those who listen to science, or those who listen to facebook/twitter loons?

In the UK, we're trying to take the prime minister down for his failings during the pandemic. So I'm not sure we're classed as good model citizens. But that doesn't change the science.

Was it a promise?

Trump tweeted. "AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!"

I was under the impression restrictions were going to last six months, right at the start. I wasn't alone.

I was pretty safe, until I started dating the second half of 2020, and wound up catching it from a pharmacist who went out to a rave the night before. I didn't know until she was at my place, bragging about how her and her friends went out partying all night during a pandemic. I assumed, since she was in the medical field that she would know better...

The flu like symptoms weren't so bad, but the breathing issues that cropped up a week in were pretty scary. I'm an active guy, and going up the stairs would have me completely winded, and I could feel the fluid in my lungs if I bent my back. Lost taste and smell, which was weird, but whatever - it came back.

My breathing never completely returned to normal, though. To this day I'm about 90% what my breathing used to be. When I breathe in, it feels like my lungs just can't expand fully anymore. Thankfully it never got any worse. I was 30 when I caught it.

And on top of that, both me and my roommate had a lot of brain fog for about a month after catching it. Sort of felt like I was woke up in the middle of the night and just couldn't get my focus back. Or, kind of like a mild THC high. Tasks as simple as reading an email were way more difficult than they should have been. I had to have meeting with my bosses telling them I was struggling to focus on anything, and thankfully they were pretty understanding.

Thankfully I wound up being fine, but it was definitely a bizarre experience for both me and my roommate.

Apologies for taking so long to respond to this, crazy past few days, but to be honest, I don't think to begin to refute the points you presented, I'm not sure I should even bother. But tell ya what, how about we do some role play? I'll play the part of the crazy right wing racist bigoted conspiracy theorist and will attempt to refute these points.

This is not a verified source and the claims are suspect at best. Checking through the comments shows more questions about the article and the legitimacy of the editorial.
And what's a "verified" source to you? The lies the Mainstream media tells on a daily basis? It's not even conspiratorial anymore, they either get caught saying out loud to other people or just outright say it live since they don't even bother to hide it anymore, and even occasionally getting caught in a hot mike moment. So tell me, why should I believe in what most of the vile stuff the media spews out on a daily basis as true when they lie and admit that they lie and perpetuate bias constantly
You deliberately misinterpreted my request here and then posted far-right websites that misquote or makeup stories. They don't properly cite their sources and you would realize that if you actually researched the topic instead of just believing shit that confirms your beliefs.
And referring to my comment above, one could say you do the same in believing the lies you've been brainwashed to believe.
You used the same conspiracy site and outdated articles that were written before the understanding of Delta and Omicron.
We've had scientests numerous times throughout the two years saying stuff like cloth masks don't work and that the shots aren't that effective, that you can still catch and spread the virus. 2 years. But it only matters now since the CDC and Dr. Science God Fauci say it. It shouldn't even be called a vaccine. Vaccine's give immunity. This only strengthens your body to the virus, but you can still get it. That's not a vaccine, that itself is just a booster shot to begin with. But forgive me for using logic here.
Again with the same conspiracy site coupled with a clear understanding that you didn't read any of the sources.
And again, one could say the same with you since you clearly don't understand what you're talking about.
Most of your posts are the same conspiracy site that is provably an organization that spreads misinformation, which of course you dismissed. Can you actually prove that it's a trustworthy site? You didn't even address the concerns with the ties to a far-right political and religious cult. Why is it that you misquote sources and post nonsense, then get snippy when people call you out on it?
Can YOU prove the outlets YOU listen to are trustworthy? Not that you THINK it is, but that they don't lie and have been transparent from the start and haven't lied or withheld facts from the beginning? You may say yes, but then that would be a lie, so no you couldn't, even if you say you can. I get snippy because we have people like you spreading actual misinformation and mock those who actually know what's happening with the virus and stuff. You've most likely been brainwashed, are scared, or are just plain stupid. Call Ad hominem attacks all you want, but sometimes the truth is the truth and it needs to be said, and I gave two shits about people fee-fee's a long time ago. You and others constantly talk about others spreading consipratorial nonsense and misinformation when you believe and spread it yourself, which is the typical lack of self-awareness, as in none at all, I expect.

Of course this'll all go over your head, so I'm not giving anymore sources and try not to waste too much of my time after this since it'll go over your head. You and a lot of other people here and in your safe space, happily circle jerking each other off and making yourselves feel superior and mocking people like me who think they don't know what they're talking about because you know the moment you step out of your comfort zone, reality is gonna hit you incredibly hard. I know you and others will write this off as "other lunatic Trump supporter" or some shit, but if you have just one functioning brain cell left in your head, I'd say take heed of this and mull it over, but I'm not holing my breath. Until then, whenever you ask for sources you're just gonna ignore, I should warm people not to waste their time and breath on something that's gonna be a big waste of time that you'll just discredit simply because it doesn't follow your views that you've been falsely led to believe.

Human medical trials are already used for medical testing. My wife was actually part of the vaccine trials for J&J.
Did you get paid or was it free? Well, it's your wife's life but that's not something I would advise others to do.

If you have a point, make it.
If you have a brain, use it. See, I can make smart ass responses as well.

its sad, we are at the end times, when "punching a NAZI in the face" is controversial. All the WWII Vets are rolling in the graves...
Can't relate, since I hate almost all, if not every, extremist group out there. And I'm talking about the actual ones, not ones like when people shout "NAZI" if someone else doesn't agree to their own extreme agenda. Facism and Socialism/Communism, BLM and KKK, Antifa and the like can burn for all I care. WWII vets are rolling in their graves, but not for the reasons you think.

Didn't your prime minister also get caught hypocritically holding a big birthday party bash at the time where everybody was locked down in their homes "social distancing" from everybody else? That could also be a reason why people want to take him down, but that's just me.

A good citizen/sheep would be fine with his behavior.
