Controversial topic

There are a lot of controversial topics one can touch on. I usually stay away from these topics but I want to share my experience with you. I am not here to change anyone’s mind about our topic today, which I want to touch on covid 19 and the shots that are pushed so much.

As I said I am a believer that everyone has their own beliefs about certain topics just as I do and I am not here to change those beliefs. I will tell you I am a skeptic when it comes to the shots the government and CDC want us to get. I have experienced twice now two dear people I dearly love have the shots and both got covid 19. The CDC and others try to say that the shot prevents you from getting it, no that is not the case it suppose to help you not get it as bad, it does not prevent you from getting it.

Here I sit, a fairly healthy individual with cerebral palsy and recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. if you follow my writing you also know I have an epileptic seizure disorder that was caused by the cerebral palsy. My treatment for my seizure disorder is meds and a vegas nerve stimulator also known as the vns machine. Here a few weeks ago I was sent to go get a new battery replacement of my vns machine. Standard routine surgery. I was tested before my surgery which came back negative, just to get sick thinking I was having postoperative complications, I went to my local Er just to have them tell me I contracted covid from the hospital where my surgery took place. Complete utter shock. So here I sit recovering from this terrible virus that has been attacking my body. found some interesting facts about it that I wanted to share with you all. Did you know there are currently “3 major scientic controversies about coronavirus”? One of these controversies is face masks. while studies have been done for face masks to help in spreading the virus it has at the same time been controversial at the effects the face covering have on us who wear them. the scientists disagree due to the fact that the face covering does not stop us from inhaling droplets of the virus which can result in infection. and as we wear the mask we are breathing the exhaled air which goes up into our eyes, which results in the urge to touch our eyes and if we are contaminated with the virus we could end up infecting ourselves, according to research.

I personally found this interesting. Another area that researchers can not agree on is antibody therapy. Does it work or does it not? Researchers are not sure but they believe that by extracting b-cells and t-cells they can insert these antibodies into an infected person and it will help fight the infection, however research shows that in some cases the antibodies remained high in the body for only a few weeks but eventually decreased. keep in mind not all the studies in this article have been peer reviewed as they state.

Much more needs to be researched and studied on this nasty virus and I believe the more we as individuals can educate ourselves the more informative decisions we can make for ourselves when it comes to making decisions about our bodies. I never go anywhere and never in a million years did I ever think I would get it from a hospital no less, nor have to watch my family fight the same battle because I had no idea I was infected. If you are vaccinated, do not be fooled that it is going to prevent you from getting it. It only helps you to not get it as bad according to doctors. Please do your research and stay safe. happy reading everyone!
