A review of the Omnicron Strain.
Hey Everyone! Sorry it’s been a few days but I’ve been sick with Covid 19 omnicron and let me tell you it definitely lives up to all everyone one says it is. Now, this is the second time I have had Covid but the first time I’ve had the Omnicron strain. The first time I was sick, it sucked but it wasn’t as bas as I thought it was going to be, luckily. This time, however, I am in so much pain it was at one point unbearable.
I’ll start from day 1; this sh*t came on so fast it’s insane. I was sitting in a coworkers car when all of a sudden I felt this major discomfort and pain in my lower back. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get it to subside. I have a ruptured disc in my back from a skiing accident years prior so I thought I had done something to reinjure myself but by the time I got home my head felt as if someone was drilling a 12″ screw into my brain and I had my head in the trash can. I remember texting my therapist at 9:44am that I wasn’t going to make our 10am appointment and bam. Nothing. I was out cold for about 20 minutes because when I came to it was 10:01am. I immediately just shut my eyes and fell back asleep. I drifted in and out for a good 4 or 5 hours before I finally was able to wake up and stay up. Actually the first 3 days were all pretty much the same. I definitely couldn’t eat anything either. I’m on day number 4 now and the headache is gone. I’m not sure if it’s because of the massive amounts of water that I drink or I’m over that symptom but either way I am grateful. I still have a bit of discomfort in my lower back and every muscle/bone in my body is sore. I was finally able to eat a little something today so my energy is okay which is why I am finally able to write.
Omnicron definitely weighs up to it’s name but I really don’t recommend anyone risking getting it because it really blows. I like to point out too that I am still extremely lucky because I wasn’t hospitalized and I’m still alive.
On a side note, I am so sick of covid. I am tired of this new way of life where the world seems so messed up. It’s like worse and angrier than before. People are so much more rude and self absorbed. Covid did a lot of damage to humanity along with everything else its destroyed these past couple years. I’m totally ready for the next thing, hopefully it brings mankind back together. Hopefully it restores our tattered humanity.
Stay kind, stay real, stay safe and thanks for reading.
