Heard a news story on the radio the other day reporting that people recovered from COVIC were experiencing brain fog even months after they recovery. Suddenly I realized this explained several incidents I have had. These included sleep walking, misremembering roads I hadn't been on in several years, and unable to recall names or words. At other times I felt spaced out or just not with it.

The report commented that cytokines were produced and entered the brain tissue. Inflammation was thus caused leading to the brain fog.

I decided to dose myself with aspirin as an anti-inflammatory agent. This seemed to do a very good job of relieving that "spaced out" feeling. Have taken this regimen for a couple of days and now feel normal again.

Just a heads up for anyone who had COVID and another reason to get the vaccine.

I've been forgetting the names of things I've used all my life but this all happened before covid or the shots. Have had both shots now

In my social and extended circle, more than half--maybe 2/3--who have taken the shot(s) have experienced mild to more serious symptoms; all of which said symptoms seem to mimic the effects of the actual cootie on those who caught it. Not sure yet I see the benefit of giving myself the cootie to maybe possibly perhaps not catch it again later. Ace

I think it all depends on who you are and how you have responded to vaccines in the past. I've had annual flu shots for more years than I can remember with never an issue Not to mention shingles, pneumonia, and a few others. Never had more than a sore arm. OTOH I'm 77 with two of the major comorbidity risks. To me taking the shots was a no brainer.. I felt a bit draggy for a day after the second one, but I figure getting the actual bug would be a far greater risk.

Anyone else's MMV and it's still a mostly free country for now. Although the Dems look like they'd like to push hard to make COVID vaccination cards a mandatory thing to participate in society. Am I going to have to flash my card to fly Delta or get into a major league baseball game?

My body fight flu shots like the actual live virus has invaded...it stinks!! Although the flu "vaccine" isn't an actual live virus that is free to multiply in my body my immune system reacts to it no different than the actual flu. Fortunately since it's not alive it passes within a few days.

I'm not looking forward to the c19 vaccine for that reason. Even though it's not a live virus I fear my body is going to fight like mad when it sees it.

My wife and I have both had all the shots of Moderna vaccine. I had no side effects and she felt tired the next day and had a sore arm. With all my health problems and age 73, a no brainer for us.

My wife and I have had both injections of the Moderna product. She was sickened by the second one; neither one affected me at all. Do different immune systems explain this variation? Don't know, that's why I ask.

My wife had the Moderna vaccine and had a significant reaction to the second shot. She had been told to expect this by several doctors who were the first ones to get the vaccine.

Keep well hydrated before getting the second shot. Get the Pfiser vaccine if possible.

From what I have been told, Moderna first shot does a great job of building antibodies and the reported reactions to the second shot is just the immune system doing its job.

I got the 2nd shot this afternoon. About 4 1/2 hours ago. So far, so good. I'll have to wait and see what the future holds.

With that last post, I spoke to soon. Starting around midnight things started getting bad. Aches everywhere, chills and shivering. Things are getting better now, I figure things will be back to normal by morning.

My S I L and youngest daughter took the Johnson @ Johnson vaccine shot on Monday. Daughter(40) had no side effects and SIL had the same as billmc. Got over it in a day. Says he would take it again but was miserable for about 14 hours. Daughter said he kept her awake for the whole night wanting more cover, and a hoodie, etc.

Funny, the women in the family seem to be tougher than the men.
