Monkeypox, COVID, Legionnaires disease....What's next? in The Musings of a Former Filmmaker Turned Writer

You know, call me crazy but doesn’t it seem weird that we’re getting close to the fall season and eventually, the winter season and all of these diseases are just popping up (and with COVID - popping back up)? Monkeypox, COVID, Legionnaires, etc., and the government are trying to make it as if Monkeypox is the deadly bubonic plague. No, it’s not. I’m sorry but it isn’t. The government has declared Monkeypox a public health emergency, which - really? Like seriously? Anyway, with the government doing so, a lot of people across America are losing their minds - refusing to sit here, refusing to sit there, don’t touch him, don’t touch her, don’t touch this. Wear one mask, no, two, no, three, no, four.

Jesus fucking Christ, I’ve never seen people so afraid of germs and diseases and illnesses before in my life. Has anyone ever heard of an immune system? It’s stronger than what people think. Now, whether you went and got COVID-vaccinated or didn’t, it’s none of my business and whether I have or not is certainly none of yours because to discuss that would be to open up a whole can of worms, but I seriously have seen people who are out and about, wearing two or more pairs of surgical gloves, two or more masks on - plus a face shield and will still on top of that, be afraid to bump into anyone, accidentally touch anyone, or if in public, be afraid to sit next to someone.

Like, seriously? If you’re that afraid, then you shouldn’t even be outdoors at anytime, just stay indoors 24/7. The government, I feel, is putting people in and wanting people to be in a state of constant fear, and because there are a lot of weak-minded people out here, they are in a state of fear, 24/7.

Yes, I am very clean, okay, no, scratch that, I’m a female, Black/biracial version of Danny Tanner from Full House when it comes to cleanliness. However, still wearing masks (which does nothing to protect you or anyone else by the way - don’t debate me on this. If you believe differently, then let’s just agree to disagree), wearing surgical gloves, wearing face shields, spraying the outside air with Lysol and all of this, “Oh no! Someone accidentally bumped into me!” “Oh no! Someone isn’t standing six to eight feet away from me, I’m going to catch a disease!” “Oh no! Someone accidentally touched me or is sitting next to me!” No, I refuse to live my life that way, it’s a ridiculous way to live. In fact, that’s not living at all.

Stay clean, stay healthy via vitamins, herbs, and remedies, wash your hands after using the bathroom and after coming in from outdoors, and use sanitizer after touching all public surfaces, but other than that, just LIVE. Stop letting fear dictate your life. These diseases, Illnesses, and bacterias are not as deadly and dangerous as the government and the media would have you believe. This is a controversial post and while I accept and welcome feedback, make it respectful or don’t give any feedback at all.
