Himself said that if your DH makes a good stiff one before your swab test, you won't even notice it.

Okay, there's a certain logic to that.

They only do the testing from 8 am till noon. So Himself is saying morning drinking is acceptable? I knew I liked him

We SO need to route ourselves through your neck of the woods when we're on vacation again, GG.

I'm guessing that might be 2023?

You do! Hopefully there will be a vaccine early next year.

Btw, I tested negative for Covid-19 I wasn't really worried about it, but it's good to know.

It IS a relief to know.

It really wasn't that bad. It's uncomfortable, as they say, but it was over pretty quickly and I had no lasting pain. But I get really bad chronic headaches (not migraine) and I've had Crohn's disease for over 30 years. I've had much more painful experiences.

Glad to hear it wasn't that bad. I'm also glad that you, unlike loads of people, understand that "really bad headache" doesn't necessarily mean migraine. In fact, it sounds like your headaches are probably worse than the majority of my migraine headaches. (((hugs)))

Thanks, friend

Yeah, migraine gets all the publicity! j/k

I started getting headaches at 11 years old and wasn't diagnosed and effectively treated for six years. I have the constant, unremitting type. Here's more information if you're interested.

Yikes! I looked it up on Wikipedia as well. That sounds horrible. Does treatment work for you?

Yes, the Indocin works for me, but it has caused intestinal issues, along with Crohn's. My GI doctor wishes I would stop taking it. Lucky for me, I've been with my family doctor since I was diagnosed with Crohn's, and he's seen me go without Indocin, so he continues to prescribe it for me.
