I prepped everything for the potential midnight eventuality but ... nothing happened :-)
6am, 10h: I woke up (wow is this clockwork). I think I might have had a low grade fever but I didn't check, slept it off (room was cold when I went to sleep, but felt strangely significantly warmer/though not terribly hot at 6am as I woke up)
10-11am, 14-15h post-booster: I can't remember specifics cos I was kinda sleepy but I changed out of PJs and took a shower, was pretty tired but functional hahahha so I told myself to shower while I'm still feeling up to it
1.30pm, 17.5h: I order myself lunch, on delivery. I couldn't really decide what I wanted, but eventually settled with a meal deal from a Korean place - boneless Korean fried chicken with mandu (Korean fried dumplings)
I'm not sure if that was bold lol I was considering going extra conservative like, nothing fried 😂 Considered noodle soup/congee at first but in combi of minimum order amt/delivery fee/what I felt like eating, I guess this was what I ended up with when the stars aligned hahahah. While waiting for the food (lunch hour, food takes longer) I felt a bit funky but I'm prettty sure that was just gastric for not eating soon enough (like, not in the headachey/nausea sense, but the "something stabs my ribs owwww" sense) - so yeah I was okay/it went away once lunch arrived and I ate it :-)
2.30pm, 18.5h: Moderna booster arm is still sore lol. Not sure how tired I still am (how much of this is real? How much of this is me turning this into a mind game of self-fulfilling prophecy cos I took the booster? Maybe I'm not thaaat run-down? But what if the side effects have a delayed peak onset? But what if I think I'm ok and go do a thing and get hit badly later? ... etc.)
7pm-ish/23h: Covid arm is real and I'm so tired but no GI distress - could be bc I was sleeping it off 😆😂 I don't know if this means I'm all clear or are the side effects a delayed onset.
Felt like I slept 3/4 of my day. Haha. Had soup for dinner!
2am/30h - now lol. I'm making this post 😆🙃 I can still feel my covid arm lol but it doesn't hurt too bad and I can still use my left arm to text/crochet/whatnot, although it definitely still feels better to sleep/lie down on the other side. 😬
That's all for booster adventures! ... I hope.
TLDR, no GI distress so everything else was tolerable/manageable/could be slept off 😆😂
