I write so I’ll know what I’m thinking



I’m fully vaccinated, and no, I don’t know what’s in it – neither this vaccine nor the ones I had as a child, nor in a Big Mac, or hot dogs, or in other treatments; whether it’s for cancer, AIDS, the one for polyarthritis, or vaccines for infants or children.
I also don’t know what’s in Ibuprofen, Paracetamol, or other meds; it just cures my headaches & my pains.
I don’t know what’s in ink for tattoos, the wine or alcohol mixers, the water from the tap even, or every ingredient in my soap or shampoo or even deodorants.
I don’t know the long-term effect of mobile phone use or whether or not that restaurant I just ate at REALLY used clean foods and washed their hands.
In short, there’s a lot of things I don’t know and never will.
I just know one thing: life is short, very short, and I still want to do something other than just going to work every day or staying locked in my home. I still want to travel and hug people without fear and find a little feeling of life “before.”
As a young child and as an adult, I’ve been vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chickenpox, whooping cough, and quite a few others; my parents and I trusted the science and never had to suffer through or transmit any of said diseases.
I’m vaccinated, not to please the government but:
To not die from Covid-19
To not clutter a hospital bed if I get sick
To hug my loved ones
To not have to do PCR or antigenic tests to go out dancing, go to a restaurant, go on holidays and many more things to come…
To live my life
For Covid-19 to be an old memory
To protect us.
