This week Wales relaxed it's Stay Local requirements of not travelling further than 5 miles from home. Permission was also given for some non-essential services to re-open on Monday 22nd June. Early mornings can now see small queues forming in Llandudno to take advantage of these new opportunities...

1. Have You Had Coronavirus?

If, like one of our volunteer moderators, you have had coronavirus it may be that you haven't yet recovered enough to do much more than wake up in the mornings. The long tail of symptoms from those who are over the initial life-threatening infection is now making the news and some of the "after effects" are sounding just dreadful.

Others do not seem to suffer as much and have, more or less, returned to their "normal selves". With this in mind, this thread posed an interesting question:

Has having the virus increased arthritis symptoms or brought them out of remission?

Do join in the discussion and tell us of your experience.

    Pulling a muscle in your back is quite often very painful. Stiffness and being unable to move properly resulting in a full week of grunts, groans and frequent wakeful nights in our household.

    The cause was simple: reaching over to flip up the covers whilst making the bed. 😣

    After relating the incident on social media, a kind person sent me...

    Laughing is also quite painful.
