If you had severe symptoms with Covid infection, were they as bad the next time you caught Covid?

I caught Covid earlier in the year and it wasn’t an easy time of it. Unsurprisingly I am apprehensive about catching it again. For those people who did have severe symptoms, many symptoms, long Covid etc, and caught it again - was it equally bad, worse or not as bad?

I’m the opposite. Had no symptoms first 2 times. Got covid now for third time and it’s awful for me this time. Fever, cough, aches, headache

I was seriously ill and in hospital first time, even after being vaccinated.
Second time it was much milder, more like a bad cold and completely different symptoms.

This research suggests the opposite though!

That must have been scary. Glad you had a much better time of it second time round. Thanks for the link to the article. The guy who worked on this study posted a useful thread including a link to the study if interested. twitter.com/zalaly/status/1590738391855157249?s=46&t=14KxAEePAl4RFq7VMXIgPQ

The Reuters article mentions it was mainly older men (true), but misses out some of the context - the journal says 'Although the Veterans Affairs population which consists of those who are mostly older and male may not be representative of the general population, our cohorts included 10.3% women, which amounted to 589,573 participants, and 12% were under 38.8 years of age (the median age of the US population in 2021), which amounted to 680,358 participants. Subgroup analyses were not conducted by age, sex and race. '
