Raoul’s Two Cents: August 19, 2022
The Road to Immunity
I always wondered what it would be like to get Covid. There are so many theories flying around. I also see the silliness of the CDC and WHO who decree one thing and then change their minds the next day. I wish they would be honest enough to say they don’t have a clue. And why Faucci hasn’t gotten fired yet is a complete mystery.
So I developed my own theory. I believe that the vaccines work — Moderna is at the top of my recommendation (ever since I read that the CEO of Pfizer was detained from flying at the airport because he himself didn’t take his own medicine made me suspicious about it). I believe that relatively healthy people will not suffer adverse effects. I do not believe in booster shots. Seriously, when the President (who has had booster shots galore) contracts Covid twice in a row, it’s obvious it doesn’t work.
I am a very social person, so I don’t know where I got it. I attended a huge party last Saturday, went to church Sunday, watched my grandsons’ basketball game, had a luao dinner, had a business meeting Monday and bought groceries on Tuesday. Tuesday afternoon I was feeling strange. Everything I touched made me tingle. I felt weak. But it wasn’t until Wednesday that I decided I needed to see a doctor. Sure enough, the swab test proved I had Covid. This may sound strange and flippant but I was actually glad. I could put my theory to the test. The doctor gave me a choice of a Covid Kit which may have side effects or just one pill (benzonatate) to control the inflammation in my throat. I chose the latter. I wanted to get sick and develop my immunity.
So here I am in bed still very weak with a mild case of Novel Covid. If my theory works, I won’t be bothered by Covid again. Sorry if I don’t have a lot of jokes today. Doing this all in the confinement of my bed.
Of course, this is just me. TGIF people!
