JennieG Life After Covid? (16) RE: Life After Covid? 30 Jul 21


Young people have grown up not having to live through the dreadful illnesses that many of us older folk have. When I was a child polio was still a thing - although we were given the fairly new Salk polio vaccine, a thick pink liquid on a little spoon. We were given tests for T.B., and I seem to recall an innoculation (as it was then called) for diphtheria and whooping cough. That was it. No immunisation for measles, mumps, chicken pox, all those 'childhood' diseases; we just had to take our chances, and take them we did.

When my own children were young new vaccines were slowly being added to health care, so we made sure they were given protection as it became available.

I have trouble wearing a mask, I can't breathe then have a panic attack. My childhood was physically and emotionally abusive and, although it was a long time ago, some things never leave your mind. Himself is happy to do the shopping and general household running around, and I am happy to let him. It is possible to get a medical exemption but to do that one has to see a doctor......and to do that, one has to wear a mask! Next time I am due for a general visit to have prescriptions renewed, in a few months, I will ask the question then.

Before you ask, I have already had one A-Z shot and will have the second next Thursday.
