I’ve got chills …

A cherry cake sits on a wooden chopping board.  A couple of slices have been cut from the loaf

Ugh, I was congratulating myself last night on having no symptoms whatsoever after my jab, not even a sore arm – and then at 11pm, pretty much 12 hours after my jab, they all hit me like a ton of bricks.

I’ve had the shivers, I’ve been burning up, everything aches, my arm is sore … I’ve been feeling a bit sorry for myself today, it has to be said, although it’s made me feel better to read your comments from yesterday and know that firstly, I’m not alone and secondly, I should be fine again by tomorrow.  Thank you!  I know I’m not ill and that really helps too, and that my body is doing what it should be doing by trying to fight whatever this incoming substance is, and it’s always comforting to know that things are working properly!

The family has been looking after me whilst I’ve stayed in bed catching up on sleep.  I can’t remember the last time I had a day in bed and I did feel quite guilty about it, but they all seem to be coping just fine (although apparently the dog said that he usually has the whole box of food for breakfast, not just a scoop.  Nobody believed him.) so I am welcoming the opportunity to just have a rest for the day.

As I’ve not been out and about today, I thought I’d show you this Cherry Almond Loaf Cake that small daughter and I made the other week.  It’s a free recipe from Doves Farm, it was really quick to make and it disappeared equally as quickly.  It’s very good with a cup of tea!

See you tomorrow when, hopefully, normal service will be resumed!

    Hang in there! You'll soon feel better, but make the most of everyone managing without you. ��

    I feel your pain! I'm in the States and got my second Moderna vaccination on Wednesday. Shortly thereafter, my pains started. A background Headache came on within 5 minutes and by my 15-minute wait period, nothing else came about. A few hours later, my jab arm started hurting like someone hit it with a baseball bat and then the fever, body aches and chills hit like a ton of bricks. I am feeling better now but not quite back 100% like I was before round 2. Hope you are feeling better now too.

    Hi Christine, I am so sorry you are under after the jab, I was the same, it's not nice, hope by today you are better.

    Hope that you're feeling better. To give people reading this who haven't had their vaccination encouragement I had AstraZeneca with no ill effects despite being apprehensive as I react badly to my annual flu one every September.

    Sorry to hear it's affected you this way but I'm sure you will be fine in no time at all, my son had a two day reaction that kept him in bed but it soon passed. Thank you for the cake recipe it looks yummy.

    Oh I hope you're feeling better this morning Christine. It does seem to be about 12 hours afterwards when it hits – if it does. The cake looks delicious.xx

    My husband was the same as you after his 2nd shot. 2 days and nights of chills and body aches. This morning he announced he is better but needs sleep. So hang in there!

    A bit late in reading this, so I hope you're feeling better by now. Although you could perhaps milk it for a day or two longer.😁 A bit of pampering never does any harm! xx
