I'd be interested to read data on whether or not National Average IQs have improved post-COVID deaths.

Not enough of us died! I was hoping for a culling of around three billion or so.

Mostly foreign types, obviously.

Of course! Murica 4evar!

Dirty commie.

Today's the first day I woke up feeling like a human being. And my first day wearing clothes.

My wife and I count ourselves lucky that our reaction to it was mild.

Yeah, I've still been masking up in public places, meetings, etc. And we're in a another surge right now. Lots of folks getting it.

RE: Fourth shot... I haven't gotten it either. I was told that being under 50 (barely) and healthy, to wait for the booster in the fall, in which some of the more recent variants will be dialed in. There's been a few studies / concerns about how much vaccine we're dosing ourselves with. Not that the vaccine itself is harmful, but that our immune system gets overloaded with vaccine in a way that keeps it on high alert. (Theres word for it that I forgot.) Still lots of studies going on about it.

Long COVID is real. I know plenty of folks dealing with it. Rest up. Get as well as you can.

Oof. No good. Hope it lets go of you soon.

Are you all vaxxed up? I seem to remember you starting off with J&J.

Yep. And the Pfizer booster. But I didn't get the fourth one.

So I'm at day 5 and am just now able to properly move around the house and prepare my own food. The S.O.is at day 8 and remains exhausted. The smallest chores are like moving a truck with your teeth.

The doc says expect this for 1-3 weeks, with potential "exhaustion relapses" for 1-3 months.

Gotta say... I haven't necessarily been cavalier about COVID, but I have kind of relaxed myself along with everybody else these past few months. The "I'm over this" attitude. This has changed my mind. Back to being strict about my approach to all of this. It doesn't help that just about everyone I know (all vaccinated) are also falling to it, with varying degrees of intensity. Several of our friends and allies from the March book convention are still sick after getting it two months ago. One of my editors has had to quit -- they're 28 and they're in therapy to learn how to speak, read, and write again. Like a stroke victim.

So...been down for the count with COVID for the last few days. Fever, chills, cognitive problems...so weak I could barely get to the bathroom. Totally kicked my ass, and felt like nothing I've ever felt before.

Today's the first day in three and a half days I've been able to get out of bed and it's exhausted me.

Spent most of this time worried my own name would end up in the Obit thread...

Yep, it's been maskless here for a while, but I've only recently quit wearing mine into stores and stuff. I'm slowly but surely building a life around myself where we don't need to leave our home for an extended period of time... maybe a month or two at this point.

I do find myself kinda looking wistfully back at two years ago... how little we had to do all day, etc. But then I remember how fucking terrifying it all was and I'm glad that we're where we are, even if Georgia is backwards as fuck, for the most part.

We're fully maskless back here. Hospitalizations are down because we're True Blue and everyone's been jabbed and those who haven't were disappeared in the night.

I've kept (generally) to the mask rules, though. And still avoid crowded areas. I'm really sad that things are getting back to normal. I mean, just when it was getting interesting, you know?

Broke out of my self-imposed quarantine and hit the local brewery this week.

Around here, it's as if the pandemic never happened. Still some folks wearing masks in places like the grocery store, but there's more maskless than not. And WV still has enough hospitalizations to put a strain on the system.

Great piece in the Post this AM about the needed investment in disease tracking infrastructure. It's big brother-y for sure, but in my increasing old-man-ness, I'd rather be under constant surveillance if I can live out the apocalypse in relative peace.

In fact, the last two years have been the healthiest of my life!

Me too! I was a little sad when I got sick in Hawaii. It was a good run of no colds for almost two years.

So -- proof positive that people are fucking disgusting and we should stick to our tightly controlled pod from now on!

You're not wrong.
