This is certainly an interesting time right now. I know many of us around the world are social distancing, self-quarantining, or whatever phrase you are using for it.
So let's take a moment and check-in here and let the community know how you're doing during all this.
Off topic a tad, but I have been told that I have a mass on my thyroid. Getting it biopsied next week. Cancer runs in my family.
You'll be fine Jim...
Ty for your nice words all!
Hope it works out well for you RND!
Hey everyone! I'm 2 weeks away from my second vaccination. YAY! Didn't even feel the first one, and had no side effects at all except the sore arm for a day. (I had the Pfizer shot). The reason I'm posting here is because I'm happy to have survived this pandemic! I really didn't think I would. I was certain Covid would kill me if I got it, and I can't believe I managed to escape it as my kids were constantly being sent home from school to self-isolate after coming into contact with carriers!
Anyway, I'm still here. my health isn't brilliant but I should survive a little longer. Maybe I should skin something to celebrate not being dead?
Take care everyone.......
I too had my first Covid-19 vaccination, May 17 will be my second (last), so far no side affects, mine was Moderna, and I concur with Jim, be nice to see you skinning again BoXXi.
I got both vaccination shots back in March/April. Only side affect was in the second shot. I felt pain in my muscles as if I had worked out in the gym. After a couple days and some Tylenol , I was just fine.

PS - My vaccine was produced by Pfizer.
I do not have cancer!! Yay me!!
That's great news, Jim, glad to hear it.
Geno here; still 86 and living in Senior Apartments in Camas, WA. Got both shots at the VA and felt secure. Then suddenly, I got a kidney disease called Nephrotic Syndrome............from taking asprin. Just got through with 8 months of horrendous treatments and I am now in remission. Was worried about Covid, just like everyone else, and wham, out of left field......kidney. Just goes to show ya; LIFE CAN BE DANGEROUS TO YOU HEALTH.....!.
It sure can! I had another fall last Friday [30.04.21] and suffered damage to my right shoulder/upper chest area. I was fumbling around in the dark to turn my bedside lamp on when I lost my balance and landed awkwardly on my right elbow... and geez, didn't it hurt.... and then some. Trouble is, since I was diagnosed with vertigo and diabetes, my balance hasn't been the greatest at the best of times, but in the dark it's even worse because I often can't see anything to get my bearings, etc.
Thing is, though I landed firstly on my elbow, my arm was pushed upward and probably dislocated my shoulder as well as injure my collarbone. I say that because the actual shoulder joint is quite sore. Luckily it went straight back in, but it's the collarbone area that's causing the greatest pain and discomfort. I don't think anything is broken, it feels more like soft tissue damage and it may be that I have torn some ligaments and muscle during the fall.
If it doesn't improve by Monday [10.05.21] I shall go to my doctor to get it properly assessed, just in case the damage is more serious than I first thought.
I have some very low light LEDs at strategic locations to keep me oriented when I move around at night.
We usually have some low-light LEDs set up to help with night movements, but we recently moved and thus far have not been able to access the box they're packed in. I certainly won't be able to locate them while struggling with this pain, but I have a couple of housemates looking for them for me.
It's one of the most niggling and uncomfortable injuries I've ever had. I can't cough, sneeze or fart without the pain reaching a 7 or 8 out of 10. While I'm using my left arm/hand to do any lifting and most tasks, it still aggravates the injury on the right.
Yup, more of that.... lots more!!!!
Happy to say today I got my second vaccine. Fully vaxed now.
