Journal of the (Covid-19) Plague Year: My Second Vaccine

So, I got my second Pfizer vaccine at the beginning of May. The process was exactly the same as my first shot. Afterwards, I felt exhausted, but I don’t think that the vaccine caused that. I think it was the letdown from the adrenaline rush.

I woke up the next day feeling relatively normal, though I slept poorly. To be honest, I was a little disappointed. I was kind of hoping to have an excuse to call in sick. But as it is, I got up and took my temperature. It was normal.

as the day went on, I gradually did feel worse. I started to feel muscle aches, and my temperature climbed to 99.5. But I continued to work for some reason. I mean, I was capable of working, and I didn’t really feel like crashing on the couch. As it is, I finished the day and then crashed on the couch.

The evening was a little bit miserable. By that point, my temperature was pretty normal, but every muscle in my body ached. I was very tired; I put Netflix on in the background. I paid a minimal amount of attention to Netflix’s documentary about the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum robbery before giving up and going to bed.

the next morning I woke up and felt fine. I still want to sleep early that night, but other than that, I was normal.

Also, a co-worker had Covid-19, and he told me it felt like getting hit by a bus. And the bus was on fire. I never felt that bad.
