We have had the vaccine, but I've not had the booster shot.
My cough and tiredness remained for like 20 days, but then I got better. I was fine.
Then, some time fairly recently, for a procedure, my father tested positive for covid again. This, in spite of having previously having tested negative. My family wrote it off as a false positive from the prior covid exposure on Christmas. Just to be sure, I asked my boss, and my boss said that I didn't need to take a test and could still work, and that was that. Nothing came of it.
But I am beginning to wonder.
Because I am permanently waking up with fatigue. Fairly bad fatigue, at that. This, in spite of taking every step to get plentiful high-quality sleep. I always feel well-rested, and it's 7-9 hours of sleep. Plenty of sleep, and it feels high-quality, too! In the past, I could tell high quality sleep from low quality sleep so I don't think I'm wrong that I am getting high quality sleep.
And yet, I am constantly neverendingly tired--in the exact same way as I was the 20 days after I got covid in Christmas.
You know what also happened for my Christmas covid? A persistent cough that just. would. not. go. away.
I don't have that now.
What I do have though is a sore throat that just. won't. go. away.
And constant fatigue.
And constant achey joints, a general feeling of being overly tired and exhausted.
It just feels so familiar to me.
