Showed a guy my new trick at the office Friday, he about jumped out of his chair :)
Im sure this should hurt.. but its not. At least not any more than the normal constant pain i have in that arm. ( and the other arm, due to surgery i should never had had. if i had only known the long term side effects of surgery would be far worse than just letting the injury go.. )

Having all the nerve endings dead and unable to process pain sounds better than having joints full of arthritis that are going to give you a dull pain response around the clock.
As for me and my family, I think we all finally got the coof. For me it was like a flu, and not the worst flu I've had either. After clearing the days-without-symptoms thing I went out of town for a week, and most of the time I was just really really tired. Then I came home and pretty much slept the entire weekend.
For what it's worth ... the two members of my family who were vaccinated had more severe symptoms than the two of us who weren't vaccinated.
I do have the dull pain all the time. sometimes worse if i move wrong ( especially in mornings, i cant use that arm to get out of bed, it takes a bit before i can use it ), but i suspect it would be a LOT worse if it wasn't for the nerve damage down there.
We had it end of Jan, beginning Feb in 2020, before anyone knew what it was. We were "functionally sick" about 2 weeks, 'its sort of like flu, but its not, its mostly just annoying, but wtf is this as its not a cold'.
I was also dealing with a kidney stone ( longest running one i have had to date ) and i know all the tests i was getting, i caught it at the hospital..
