Got it in the post today. Was a nervous wreck using it, but the booklet was very easy to follow. Had a bit of problems getting the droplet of blood to drop onto the test... the waiting was 10 minutes and felt apprehensive - but it's negative. Filled in the questionnaire and sent photo of the test as asked. Have said they are welcome to contact me with any further questionnaires. Done my bit but it says that just because negative, does not mean not had the virus so still feel a little shaken up!
Been reading up on the Covid vaccines - and was pleased the other day that my doctors are doing it.... well that is what I thought.
They are contacting patients, but sending to just 5 places in Suffolk - Trinity Park is the only one in Ipswich and that is miles from me and I do not drive. And why is it the Pfizer vaccine only? Where is this Oxford one? Where are chemists and other centres that are meant to be opening?
I know it's early days but my Dad has his at his surgery and the Oxford one, due to be done on Tuesday.
I just feel there is no way out of this hell. The dangled carrot moved another 6 months into the future, like it always seems to be, I cannot live like this forever. The longer it goes on, the more I will never get over the anxiety.
Just like to say to all posters on here, especially the ones who have been kind and helpful to me this year, have a great Christmas and let's all hope for a better 2021. It has been the worst year of my life - ill all year with that damned virus I cannot shift from March 2019. I just hope one day there can be an end to all this sadness and fear.
