So I’m not gonna lie — but day 1 is awful!!! My arm feels like a rock; my bones are achy, I felt nauseous and feverish. I really chickened out first time round when I was supposed to take this last month and I didn’t. Now I did and WOW! I went for the J&J #OneAndDone. But I get why the inner me said “NO!” There are so many concerns on what to get and what not to get. Reason being –if you hadn’t had any symptoms by now you may think, “Why should I even get it now?” And why put yourself through this anyway.
The choice is YOURS to make.
As for me, the fact that we are going out more and traveling; with coworkers, family or friends, I just would rather increase my chances of NOT getting infected with Covid. It’s added precaution for me and those I come in contact with.
Medicine in the bible is good: Isaiah had said to Hezekiah’s servants, “Make an ointment from figs and spread it over the boil, and Hezekiah will recover.” Isaiah 38:21
If we have the resources yes with Prayer always being first, we can trust that its okay to use that. I had to take a 800 Milligram Ibuprofen as well. Thank God. Because I feel better already. Able to eat my portion of rice, a little soup and lots of water. Just sharing my experience because I had horrible symptoms last March of 2020 when Covid-19 struck the globe. All my doctor could tell me is, “You probably have it and so do I! Your young, go home and rest this off!”
This sickness ravaged the world. Lives were changed. Habits reinforced of social distancing and keeping clean. Masks and hand sanitizer everywhere we go. What a difference this was and the toll it took. Whatever we can do to reach a place of normalcy, let’s strive for that.
I can tell you this. Today I am an ambassador for wellness. A champion for the vaccination, when so many will refuse it. We need this to all go away because its not just Covid-19. Sickness comes in all forms and types. We need to be protected and follow the best safety mechanisms using wisdom. We pray yes! But we also comply and be the change that leans toward safety.
That’s just my take. Praying this through with you too. We are all in this together.
