Three days of serious joint pain, the poops, a bit of fever and O2 level down just a bit so I took a home COVID test.

Positive.

I am thinking how bad it would be had I not gotten the boosters!

I'm still not sure how the tests work for accuracy.  Do they just pick up any corona virus?  I sent a question to the Mayo clinic pharmacy on their site.  They were encouraging testing since new variants were out.  I asked how they determined if the test showed covid 19 or delta or omicron.  The answer was they relied on a very experienced technician to read the test and make his best determination.  I've had the rona and I now have antibodies so I won't take the shot as it may interfere with natural immunity.

Those antibodies are very short-lived and the booster will not interfere with them.

I ended up being diagnosed with both COVID and pneymonia and spent a day in hospital with about nine tubes running in!
