Really not loving the side effects I’m having from my boos­ter shot 😔 My original vaccine course was Pfizer, which just made me sleepy and gave me a little pain as if I was bruised for the 24–48 hours after each dose. This boos­ter was Moderna and it has made my arm hurt like hell! It’s felt like someone sank a hook into the muscles of my upper arm, near my armpit, and has just been jiggling the hook all around madly so the pain goes on and on. It was so bad I couldn’t sleep last night until I took loads of painkillers and even then I had to take another lot when the first lot wore off and the pain woke me up again. Hate it.

I mean, I’d much rather this than contract Covid with less ability for my immune system to fight it off. But still, not fun!
