I was told to expect sheer physical collapse after tonight's 2nd Covid vax so I made some pre-emptively resuscitative cabbage soup. With bacon.

Good thinking. Looks delicious. I've heard that people who get sick from 2nd one are sick for a short time. I can get my first in 2 weeks. If I can find one

Not yet @charlotte ! Just about another hour and I get my jab. Amazingly, it's suddenly warm enough to just wear a t-shirt under my parka so that will make it a little easier to roll up my sleevarino.

@emch Good luck! I had almost zero side effects with both of mine. But I had plenty of advice on what to do and what NOT to do. So I took their advice and did absolutely nothing for 2 days after my second.

How are you doing today? @emch after getting your second vaccine? That's what we plan on doing also @cheriej absolutely nothing. Going to make a big pot of vegetable soup before hand so just heat it up👍

@crabby58 I thought I was fine at first but went home with a fever and a headache and slept all day. This morning I'm enjoying the headache more than ever with the added attraction of vertigo. I was so disoriented after the shot,, when I thought I was fine, that I left my soup on the stove all night after eating 1 bowl of it. The rest had to go down the sink. Just loving every minute of this LOL

Yes, I've heard there would be more of a reaction to the second vaccine, hoping it passes quickly for you. Guessing it effects everyone differently @cheriej We had our appointments postponed for another week do to our inclement weather. @emch

@crabby58 and @emch it does seem to hit everyone differently. My co worker thought she was fine and then had to lay down in her kitchen floor because she thought she was going to pass out! I hope it passes quickly for you both.
