I’ve been fully vaccinated since early this year (Pfizer), and tested positive for Covid-19 three days ago. I’m laid up in bed feeling terrible and quarantined so that my wife (who tested negative) and two kids don’t catch it from me. Remember: be safe. Don’t relax yet. The vaccines are wonderful, but we can still get it and pass it on.

Sending you and you family prayers for a speedy recovery. Hopefully the vaccine has made or not be as bad as it could have been had you not been vaccinated. Take good care and get better!!! 🙏🏻🤞👏

Speedy recovery. From what I have read, the vaccines don’t prevent, but rather minimize the symptoms and shorten the time you’re sick. Hopefully that will be the case with you. All the best to you and your family.

Thanks. That’s why I’m waiting…possibly a few years

Sorry for anyone getting sick but we all know it is much worse for everyone, not just you, if you don't get vaccinated too. What are you waiting for? To help the virus spread? Of course with a vaccination you can still get sick but the severity will be much less and the virus will spread less.

Me again (the original poster). It’s been one week since my symptoms first kicked in. I’m feeling much better, though the headaches and exhaustion are still going strong. Thanks for all of the comments and well wishes. I’m glad my post has made people think about whether or not they’re keeping themselves safe. Top 10 things I’ve learned (in no particular order): 1. Even vaccinated Covid sucks 2. Family support is everything! 3. Losing smell isn’t so bad 4. Losing taste is terrible, but eating healthier, cheaper, and less per serving is easy when there is no flavor (by the way, mine is coming back in flavor profiles—first was bitterness, then salty, etc.) 5. I’m going to owe my wife BIG TIME for all she’s done 6. I’m going to need to exercise after all this time in bed 7. Teenagers don’t become less… hm, teenagery (?) just because you’re sick 8. Feeling I’ll after 2 years of being sick free is no picnic 9. There really isn’t anything that you need to stock up on 10. As you start feeling better, but still must quarantine, you find ways to be productive like organizing and making top 10 lists.
