Tested positive for the second time

First had it towards the end of last year, just tested positive for a second time. Gutted to have it again. I’m worried because obviously it’s longer since having the vaccines. Can anyone give me positive stories that this variant isn’t as bad?! I’m so frustrated to catch it again, but is it just going to be one of these reoccurring things that everyone catches on and off?

I had it for the second time in the summer, and it was nowhere near as bad as first time around in late 2020.

I had it in March & again 2 weeks ago - so much milder second time around
Hope you get better soon OP

I had it in March and again August. First time was sickest I've ever been and left me with long Covid, August one more a mild cold. In fact the cold I had 3 weeks later was worse.

I've just had it for the seventh time (fourth this year). I'm CEV and have had antivirals in the past, but this time my symptoms were so mild it was decided I didn't need them. I felt a bit groggy, very tired, had the odd coughing fit and that was that, really.
Six times vaccinated, although my last one was literally a couple of days before I tested positive so hadn't had a chance to work yet!
