Last Thursday my son developed dark/flushed lips - but no other symptoms. My daughter also developed dark lips, and some congestion and mild malaise; she popped a strong positive Sunday night on a home test. Mrs. Suhr has had congestion/headaches/mild malaise since Sunday - symptoms come in waves, but stabilized.

I've not had any symptoms yet; but the dog puked this morning!!
Whole family is unvaxxed, cleanish diet, healthy weights. I take zinc/quercertin/d3 everyday and try to get 20min of sunshine each day. Thankful so far that symptoms have been very mild in those infected in my house.

Omicron is gonna get everyone, get your house in order!

My wife tested positive last Thursday. Hers comes in "waves" too, as when I am around the world is ending and she needs constant care. When I am not around she is all around the house, outside doing things and washing her new car. She forgets I have cameras all over the outside of the house. So I see her feeling better until about 5 minutes before I get home, then it is "I can't muster the energy to get up, can you bring me this, that, those, them, and one of these too?"

Haha. I've been remote for 2 years - but nah she's not awful, but bad enough to stay on the couch watching TV.
Glad to hear... hope you are all through the worst of it. BTW, you said you were asymptomatic. Did you even have a slight cough or fever or any small symptom of even the common cold? Just curious

Not really, I get a bit of a runny nose when walking my dog in the cold - and I've had slight pressure in my right ear/sinus for weeks - long before covid hit my house. I'm beginning to think my immune system in not very susceptible to it - or colds/flus in general. I go years/decades between flu, and rarely get colds.

Okay good to know. I've never gotten the flu in my life and get a cold (mostly head congestion and sometimes a cough) about once every year or two. Although one thing about Covid and not being around people much these days (with working from home), is that everyone (including my twins) have been much healthier since the beginning of 2019.

So Covid has started hitting my wife's office. There are a lot of people in field, so they come and go. This one guy who's always in the office had sinus issues and everyone asked him if he got tested. He insisted it was just allergies because he's triple vaccinated. The HR manager sent him to go get tested and he came back an hour later and said his wife tested positive, but not a word about him.

So in all likelihood that asshole gave a bunch of people covid because he believed he couldn't have it. This is the cost of misinformation. Of course if one of those people he infected passes away and is unvaccinated, it will be a cautionary tale about vaccination, not a tale about being a responsible person.

Hope he doesn’t do anything brain intensive.

WTH lol. Why didn't he get tested?

This is part of the whole mis/disinformation deluge of conflicting guidance we've received over the past two years. I can understand someone thinking they can't infect someone else because they were told the vaccines protected both them and others. But at this point I'm kinda eh about going in public with the sniffles... those who have chosen to NOT get the vaccine absolutely know their risk - and covid is basically endemic at this point right? Even Fauci said everyone is going to have to be exposed didn't he?

The real 'a$$holes' are those in charge who have put ALL of their eggs in the vaccine basket, while demonizing possible therapeutics, banning possible therapeutics, and NOT warp-speeding therapeutic research and even encouraged detrimental behavior.

That's it. He was certain he couldn't catch it. That whole 95% efficacy was lost on him.

This is the hypocrisy. If you don't get the vax it's because of misinformation. But if you don't take precautions and stay home when you have the sniffles cause you think the vax protects you from Covid, that's NOT misinformation?!?

That's like thinking the only riot in the past 2 years was on Jan 6th. Or that police kill more black people than white people.
