I was diagnosed with Covid and double pneumonia back in February. I spent 10 days on the Covid floor at Good Samaritan Medical Center. I dealt with multiple issues after recovering from Covid. No, it’s not like a bad cold. As I was finally starting to feel a little better, I was hit with a nasty viral infection about four weeks ago. That infection literally brought back every symptom I dealt with back in February. Back in May, Laura West Shoemaker and I both got vaccinated. Do I know what’s in the vaccine? No. Do I know what’s in any of the vaccines I have received since I was a baby? No. Before I became 100% Plant-Based, did I know what was in the Big Mac or Chick fil a sandwich? No, but I still ate it. I do not know what’s in the medications that helped keep me alive for all these years. But for over 18 years, my medical team has never done anything to harm me. So if they are comfortable getting the vaccine, so I am.
This post is not me telling you to get vaccinated or wear a mask. That’s not my job. I made the choice to get vaccinated and to wear a mask for the following reasons:
To not die from Covid-19. Yes, you can get Covid more than once.
If I happen to get Covid, I will probably not be hospitalized again.
To not overburden the hospitals and staff.
To keep those around me with compromised systems safe.
To be part of ending this horrible disease.
No I am not a medical expert. Most of the people reading this post are not either. I will choose to listen to the medical experts that God has put in my life.
This is not a political post. Covid is not a political issue, even if some people are trying to make it one. So please no political comments or conspiracy theories. People are dying. If you choose to leave political comments or conspiracy theories, I will delete your comment. Thanks. ~OC
