Just wanted to know what people's experience of covid has been ,if they've had it of course
Mine was it was like having the flu but with burning lung's although I didn't have breathing problems
Although 5 weeks on I've got still got brain fog,feel like I've had 2 pints all the time unless I do anything physical then I feel vexed, first came back playing cricket the other weekend I couldn't focus ,really weird :?

Never had it but seen on tv the grief it causes, 18 month ago I spent 6 days in the ICU at Barnsley General with Bilateral Pneumonia which put me completely out of it and caused further problems with the heart, not sure which is worse the covid or my condition but I can certainly say that having covid can't be a pleasant experience.

I'm interested to also know how many people have gone through this mess without Covid ever coming near them. Neither me, my kids or their mum have had it (that we know). None of my parents, grandparents, wider family such as cousins, Aunties and Uncles have had it. And none of my mates have. Am I just in some sort of mad bubble or has anyone else had that experience?

That was the thing with me ,I didn't know anybody out of family and friends who had it ,I began to doubt the perceived
threat of it

I have known a lot of people that have had it and many that haven’t.

My BIL got it after being out shopping and was quite ill 2 weeks off work and about 3 months to get right. Age 56 but fit as a butchers dog

Nephew got it was like a bad flu but Ok after 5 days. Aged 30

SIL and all her family got it. Everyone of them about 10 people . All relatively ok just like bad flu aged 10 to 48

SIL. X 2 get it . Both bad flu type symptoms ( 1 got it twice) but ok. Aged 34 and 28.

Wife’s best friend got it. 11 months later still struggling with long Covid . Aged 47.

Best friends dad got it three weeks ago died despite double jabbed aged about 80.

Have known a few others who have had it a number have died all aged about 60 to 80.

Girl at work aged 24 got it hospitalised really ill 6 months later still got brain fog. She was fit as a lop

In general those who have got it have been involved in nob ish behaviours not distancing / going to pubs to watch football etc.

Those that haven’t had it in general have been careful despite being key workers in health and social care

I know a handful of people who have tested positive with varying degrees of symptoms, from a mere runny nose to burning up in bed for 3 days. A friend of my wife's had it last spring and still has breathing issues when cycling which she didn't have before.

What I have noticed is when you go into the big shops there a quite a lot of the older people what you would think would know better and try and protect themselves better are now not wearing any facial coverings at all, where as the younger generation you don't expect them to wear them and they don't disappoint either.

If I were a covid denier than my peculiar personal experience would have inevitably made me feel fully vindicated. As it is, I work for the DHSC and I've seen what the country has faced and the fight to stop it. The fact that no one in my circle of family and friends have knowingly had Covid, is just a rare fluke.

Had mild flu symptoms for a couple of days, then lost my sense of smell for a day, after that i was left with a frequent cough and bunged up sinuses for about a week. Thankfully no long-term effects.

Sister in law who’s 35 and double jabbed currently has it. She’s really bad and looking like she may need to be admitted to hospital as she is really struggling to breathe and has bad pain in her chest

Best friend had it during the second wave and was admitted to hospital but was discharged a few days later

All other people I know who had it have had mild cold symptoms
