Word of caution. From what I have read it appears that immunity is not as good as it can get until around two weeks after your second shot.

We're registered for vaccination, but have to wait another 3 weeks at least because we had the flu jab last week. We're getting the J&J vaccine, which is only one dose. I would imagine it will take a couple of weeks to give immunity, but I'll be masking anyway, and sanitising my hands, now I'm used to doing it.

And, Agrippina, I hope you'll enjoy interacting with at least some of those of us who are still posting here.

I'm sure I will. I always enjoyed the friendships I made here. It was just that I was beginning to crash mentally, and I needed a break, and then several breaks from online interaction, during which I completely removed everything I had, photos, the works. I just wanted to be erased. I'm still fragile but I'm lucky to be living with someone who completely gets it, so I can be myself and between my two guys they pick me up when I fall. Also my drugs are helping. And I don't care about addiction. At my age peace and calmness is what I need not the stress of trying to wean myself off addictive substances.
