22 hours later
- Refrigerator magnets stick to me like they’re made out of rare earth materials.
- My non 5g phone now has 5 g’s.
One thing I’ve noticed since getting the first vaccine:
- Injection site hurts when touched with a powder puff. Deltoid is sore.
- Feel like I’m coming down with the flu, general malaise.
Used to be I could not watch horror movies but now I am halfway through “The Haunting of Hill House.”
Don't put on the tin foil hat! You'll never get it off!
The second day for both was like having a hangover (1st major, 2nd bad) and the booster just made me tired.
And I still can't watch the original Poltergeist movies.
Most people I know have had lesser reactions with each shot, but I've had the opposite experience. The first shot was nothing. The night after the 2nd shot, a few hours before bed I had "that feeling" you get when you're coming down with something, but I slept all night and felt fine when I woke up. A couple of hours after getting up though I was really tired, so I went back to bed. I slept a couple of hours, felt fine for an hour or two then was tired again. This happened a couple more times and by the afternoon I was fine.
I got my booster (3rd shot) I think in November. It was much worse. I woke up during the night really hot and feeling like I was going to puke. I ran to the bathroom, but luckily didn't puke. I felt crappy and had fever for about half the day and felt like I was going to throw up a couple more times, but I never did.
If that trend continues, I'm not looking forward to getting another booster, but I did ask my doctor about it. He recommended I wait a month or two since cases here are very low, and if there's another summer spike, getting it now would have the booster just coming off peak effectiveness when the spike hits. Waiting a month or two would have the booster working at peak effectiveness if there is another summer spike. He also said to keep an eye on local cases and if they start rising again to go ahead and get the booster.
