Never had covid, that I know of anyway as don’t regularly test only if I was Feeling I’ll or been in close contact. We’ve had covid in the household twice and only have a small house so couldn’t really isolate but I didn’t catch either time. Not complaining but thinking there can’t be many left that haven’t had. Interestingly neither my mum or dad has had either

I've never had it and I'm CEV- my OH and children all have though, I think as I'm on my 6th vaccination I'm well protected.

Nope, nor DH or DS who works in the NHS! I suspect some people just have greater immunity?

I commented earlier on this thread. Last night a service user tested positive,I spent half an hour sat next to her Saturday night when she was unwell (different symptoms), if I escape this time I might just believe I am immune.

I've never taken a test but only had a tummy bug last year, that's the only sickness I've had the past two years.
I've not had the vaccine. Husband tested positive for it recently but I wasn't sick so never tested.

DH to his knowledge has never had it not has DD luckily - I have had it once with no symptoms. Also breastfeed so hopefully antibodies passed to DD. We are both fully vaccinated.
Have had family, friends and colleagues become seriously unwell with it - its a roll of the dice truly. I dont want to gamble.

My DH and I haven't had it. I have never even been in a position to have a test, though DH had one when he went to hospital for a day.

I was one of you until last week. Been around people who've got it loads. Probably got a bit blasé.

Anyway I've had a horrible weekend and today have the mother of all headaches (I get migraines so am definitely not exaggerating how bad this is).

I know loads of people who never had it before who are catching it now and feeling awful. Whatever strain this is, it's a bastard.

I've never had it (to my knowledge) and probably should have caught it a fair few times as been exposed and flagged as a close contact frequently. DH hasn't either, and neither have our dc. When it was rife in schools, particularly the year groups ours are in, we were all being asked to test every morning before they went in, over the space of a few weeks, every child except our two tested positive. I have no idea how or why? I'd like to think we're super immune, as none of us ever get colds or bugs either, but don't want to announce that and tempt fate!

DH and DC2 haven't had it. DC1 has had it twice and I've had it once.
Not sure how it hasn't spread to the other two but we're beginning to think they might be immune.

Me and my parents have managed to avoid it so far, but two of us are cev so we are very cautious.
DS caught it at university and passed it to his dad.

Not to my knowledge. I'm not cautious either.

I've had 3 vaccines and been surrounded by covid since day one, I work in nhs, family members in the house have even had it and I've not got it until this week. 😩 I was beginning to feel rather smug thinking I had immunity or had had it but didn't even realise early on in the pandemic. But by god it's a shitty illness. I'm currently on day 5 and feel like death warmed up.

I keep expecting to come down with it every time I go to work, travel on trains, go to restaurants, supermarkets, theatre, cinema, hospital appointments, travel in cab. Even had hospital admission and nothing as yet. Covid has been in our house but I didn't get it. Probably will get it and get totally wiped out now that I have made this declaration

Ditto though none of my family members in the house have had it.
I thought I must be immune! Regretting not having the booster vaccine on offer at the hospital now - I've had the first three, but initially the hospital was using Moderna and everyone was complaining of feeling ill after it, some going off sick so I didn't want it. By the time they go Pfizer (which is what I had for the initial three jabs) I had decided I didn't want it. Now here I am, day five and feeling terrible.
Isolating in the bedroom, we only have one bathroom so I wear a mask to the loo, I really don't want DH or DD to get it.
DD is off to London to start an exciting new job this weekend - leaving celebration is off obv and I'll have to wave her away out of the window, I've hardly spoken to her all week, I really don't want her to get ill the week she starts, there's a four month intense initial training and she has signed a very serious contract agreeing to repay £15k training costs if she drops out during the period of her contract.
It'll be a nightmare if she is ill right at the start.
