I just got out of isolation with covid. It was the worst FLU ever. The worst part was the profuse perspiration. There was NO breathing ventilator required. Despite my many health issues including immune issues etc. I had a sore throat, a snuffly nose, no taste and a throbbing headache with body pains and a slight temp. The hype people report is inaccurate as most people who end up in hospital have underlying issues already obesity etc and are unvaccinated.

I say this because too many people are living in fear because thats the narrative given. It can be deadly for some however most die with covid NOT from covid.

Would your partners family skip a wedding for you, if you required it? Would they skip a event because you didn't want them to go? Would your husband skip his friends wedding or siblings wedding? If not, then how can they demand you skip a family members wedding, when they wouldn't do the same for you?

You deserve to visit with family or friends, without having abuse or silent treatment or harrassment and manipulation used against you.

If you want yo go I say go alone, stay with family after the wedding for 5 days, then take a rapid test.

I had symptoms 2 days after 2 hours max exposure.
So 5 days is plenty of time to work out if you have symptoms and to take a test.

If your husbands family cant support you being there for family, then they arent a good family are they. Its very selfish.

But ultimately your decision
You do what is right for you

I’m glad you survived it. My Aunty and uncle didn’t and now their young child is being raised by relatives. People have a right to be concerned. Might be a small percentage that die, but it does happen unfortunately.

Could you go, wear a mask, isolate for a few days and do a rapid antigen test before you go home?

If you were exposed at the wedding it would take a few days before a RAT would pick it up...

That’s why the suggestion was to isolate for a few days after the wedding before doing the test.

Sorry, I thought you meant isolate before the wedding, not after. My bad!

What do YOU think. People who give opinion on the side and dont have to deal with consequences give unreliable advice. Your husbands family giving that opinion dont need to consider the fallout that has with your mum and sister.

COVID will be here forever - no changing that - so can you realistically just stay in your small town and never see your family ever again?

I'd see if you can get to the wedding and stay with your mum a couple of nights, then take a rapid test. If you are clear, head home knowing you are safe and if you are positive, sit it out without risking passing it to your immune suppressed husband.

Your immediate family always comes first. If others can’t understand your decision that’s not very fair on you. Personally, I’d stay home with kids that young.

He is going to be exposed to that virus one way or another in his life time. He is delaying the inevitable.
