Well this moment was the scary part, finally time to see how it copes with me, I've been dreading this for the past week at least and also this was close to the only week to get it booked up, Since of all the other times I've mentioned being too busy for it to work out in the end. But this is a tale of how my worries about what this can cause and see if it makes me feel shit or not for the later on. There is a big trigger warning of how some of this sounds like Anti Vax talk if that offends. The vlog on how i feel is below:
The preparation and worries before.

|The main course|

- They are no longer offering First jabs and even the second jabs are booked for august (Despite insisting on it when seeing them on the day vaccines were announced and later on)
- Closest they can offer is call 119 or Drop in via Home Park

The Day of the Vaccine (Tuesday):
The Anxiety Attack before the Jab
Now this is where i noticed it, so I was starting to walk but i was feeling shaky in my legs and was going into slow steps, There was no queues at all, i mean more queues for Home Park Stadium tickets more than actually the vaccination itself, The stewards were greeting and asking if it was my jab and my sister said "hes a bit nervous", but then he directed me to the gate to get to this tent which was to get booked in, which then we made our way over and then it got to the tent, it was huge and alot of queuing space, which we were nearly the only ones in there, which scared the shit out of me, but as we walked up to go to wait in a queue of 1 in front of us, It was my turn and I froze, for at least a few minutes, less shaking and my sister did say we can take time, but eventually I walked up and got booked in and they took details and gave me a sheet an then told me to stick to the right as I went in, which means it was for me to have the pfizer, which from the long time ago, I was wanting to stick with but after recent reports, it made me feel a bit less safer.
- Would there be any ingredients that could cause a side effect
- The issues with some of the potential side effects
- Do i have antibodies already
- Will this cause issues with my body if i've been fine for the past 1.5 years
- Been pressured to have Vaccine from my dad
- When trying to book locally for this date to have it, it was just too much hassle to book to get it locally
- Have I really thought most of this through since I haven't from the sounds of it
- Why are the Vitamin C tablets I taken most morning recently starting to make me not as 100% but other times they are fine
- Most in hospital are unvaccinated
- No, i do not have antibodies since I have never had covid
- We cannot force you to have the vaccine
- It doesn't matter if its local or here, your still nervous about what might happen after
- Don't worry about dad, i'll talk to him
- You've made it this far
- the nurse did offer we could do the medical over the phone
The after effects home
|Playing ball as we got home with Rosie|
|The light lunch for that day|
Then it was me typing this up for the rest of the day, It was nice to catch up on some kids shows and then actually starting the Olympic Coverage of the Road Race which was actually day 1 of the Olympics funnily enough. But this was just to help me ease it in.
The recovery and relaxing evening
|The salad fried chicken Caribbean rice for tea|
|A selfie in the bath for after|
The First full day:
|Waking up with a selfie|
|Making the mango, apple, vitamin tablet smoothie|
But it was then to get ready to wake up in terms of get E-mails checked then off to go to lidl with mum, since she had a sort of busy day planned and actually it was more relaxing for me to help her and to be fair, my body only was feeling the dead arm and some minor sharps of pain but my body does that sometimes.
|The fry up I helped cook which included fried bread and even mushrooms too|
Then it was more chatter about the past and also when my nan is showing alot of signs of dementia But then it was a nice vinetta for desert as well as chocolate slices. But then it was more chatter and more vibes and helping of some choices such as a driveway and tidying up.

Day 2 after the vaccine:
|The Tortilla with the crisps|
Then it was editing for most of the rest of the day, with a walk around the 3pm mark was with another walk with the Dog, The rain was starting to come down a bit more and then it was more editing until the end of the day, there was a nice meal with some nasi goring rice as well as also seeing my dad's dad which was nice now he's moved into his old place after his fiancé died (which sort is how I got the E-bike) .
|The nasi Goring with burger sauce and crisps too|
But then it was finishing the vlog editing by about midnight, sure my hormones were kicking in but it got done and then it was uploading it while sleeping. But it was then to be the first day back at work this week.
The 3rd day after vaccination :
It was filling and after more helping with a customer, it was time to go to a visit someone booked up with me from Wednesday, which I ran to his, now the hmm of this is as I was running to theirs, I noticed it was some pains on my chest or like it was actually harder to breath a little bit, which I got there and left after 15 minutes since he fixed the issue before I got there. But then it was more running to Tesco and there was some bits but it was busy. But then it was a fair bit of last bits in Lidl I got from the Fajita Kits to Garlic Pizza Bread and even chilli burgers are really good too, with the discounts on the frozen fruit, it total came to £11.80.

But then it was time to walk Rosie and it was still a little bit of a dry spell. But I felt a wheezy and tight as I was walking, also the bpm was 141 which is slightly higher than other walks before the jab but has been that high before. But it was nice since there was a deer on the other side of the field and he galloped as normal. Then it was time to get home to get this post finished off while watching films there is a still shortness in breath but water should help me get through it.
