They Weren’t Kidding

When they said COVID would make you very sick. Or that being vaccinated wasn’t a sure fire savior. To be fair, they also weren’t kidding when they said that it wouldn’t make you AS sick.

You’ve got to be kidding.

Somehow, despite being masked almost 100% of the time, Debra and I still managed to contract COVID. It’s that almost, isn’t it? I guess they weren’t kidding when they said that masks were practically the holy grail of illness management.

Ten days later and I’m feeling better. I wish the thousands of dead who didn’t have access to the vaccine had had it. For the rest of them, the ones that could have had it, that still don’t have it, despite having no real reason, I can’t imagine why they’d want to go through this. Stabbing back pain, congestion, fever, can’t breathe. No, I mean really, can’t breathe. Even with the vaccination, oxygen is elusive.

Like I said, I’m feeling better now. All except the back pain and breathing. I’m not going to be walking up the hill outside my house without pausing for awhile, I suspect. All because of almost.

They weren’t kidding.
