La Quinta California: The chips Fauci+Gates put in my MODENA vaccine were fighting it out in my system over the past 24 hours, because I woke up yesterday morning feeling terrible. Not only was my arm sore, I was aching and freezing cold. Could not get warm. My teeth were chattering so hard, I actually bit my tongue. I had chills, yet no fever. Dave felt so poorly, he did not exercise. He ALWAYS works out. ALWAYS. The day was long. I could not eat. Just napped, and sat in front of the fireplace wrapped-up in every item of wool clothing I own. My goal was to stay alert until 9p, when I figured it would a good time to get in bed, under the duvet, with a Tylenol PM or two.
Even though the Tylenol PM had expired in October 2019.
Interesting thought from yesterday: this is how I felt when I had the flu several years ago (yes, I had a flu shot), just without the fever, congestion, etc... and that flu lasted a month and this reaction lasted one day. Still, since we have been so quarantined - and our grandchildren have been so quarantined - we haven't had as much as a sniffle for over a year. Health is everything.
Also, I forgot to mentioned I had MODERNA arm after my first injection February 5th. This is a rash that can occur days after the injection. My rash began 10 days after. I woke with an itchy hard red (palm-sized) lump about two inches below the injection site. DT googled, found it is a thing, and to just treat the rash with antihistamines (mine had expired April 2020!) Wowser, did this itch - for another ten days. Just as it disappeared, the second vaccine made it reappear within hours.
Still, a rash and one day feeling like drek are a zillion-times better than getting (or giving) COVID-19. Be sure to heed the advice of drinking plenty of water after your second injection, and maybe have some (preferably not-expired) antihistamines in the house.
Until my next update, I remain, your feeling fine correspondent.
