The Rona Files: Tales From The Infected

Well, after more than a year escaping the clutches of the dreaded COVID-19 virus, this week I learned that I was positive for the disease that has killed millions around the world.

And I’ll tell you right now, so far, it hasn’t been all I expected it to be.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful to the Lord above that I’ve had milder symptoms than many, but I have to say, I was expecting something… more.

Now, before we get into all of this, I think it’s important to say up front that I did not get the vaccine.

But that’s just my own personal decision. I’ve never gotten a vaccine for the flu, or really anything else, in decades. I have faith in my immune system and in my daily vitamin and exercise regime…

The latter of which I believe is the KEY to beating the disease.

Not only am I not vaccinated, but I’m GLAD I didn’t get it, even now.

I’ll tell you why, but first, let’s go through the timeline of events that led me to where I am.

COVID Positive… Where Do We Go From Here?

It all started this last Tuesday, I woke up with the slightest of coughs, so insignificant that I didn’t even notice. Living in Florida, one often wakes up with a little post nasal drip from all the plants constantly in bloom in the Sunshine State. But only now in hindsight do realize that that was the start.

I felt fine on Tuesday. I taught my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) class after I was done at the office, I did my own cardio workout, and then I went home and went through my nightly routine before hitting the hay.

After a restless night, I woke up a little tired on Wednesday, but again, nothing too bad. I taught my 7 am BJJ class, wrote some of the articles you all read here on FreedomWire, did some physical therapy (getting old sucks), and worked some more – but at the end of it all, I was REALLY tired.

So, I took a bath and a nap before I had to teach another BJJ class that night. After the nap, I went to the gym and felt 100% fine. In fact, I felt better than fine. I had an incredible workout and then taught my evening BJJ class before going home, eating, and going to bed once again.

But I had another restless night of sleep…and Thursday saw me wake up pretty wonky. I was a bit groggy and had some body aches, so I knew something was up. Being the responsible citizen I am, I decided the best course of action was to get tested, just to be sure.

And sure enough, the doctor came in and handed me the paper: “COVID-19 Positive”..

Now, I’m not going to lie, the first thing I thought when she said I was positive was the fact that I might be facing the real possibility of death.

I could I not? The mainstream media has been ramming this idea down our throats for more than a year now, and it was the first place my head went…that is, until my logic kicked in and reminded me that I was a healthy middle-aged man that takes all the right steps to maintain his health.

So, I relaxed and asked the doc what the next step was going to be.

She put me on the “COVID cocktail”—which, for the record, DOES include hydroxychloroquine (imagine that)—and I started it the very same day.

Today is Friday, three days after I first started seeing symptoms and a day after I felt the worst, and besides a little bit of a cough, I feel 100% fine.

Kicking COVID’s Butt!

Seriously, I feel like NOTHING is wrong with me.

Now, I realize I’m one of the lucky ones (so far). I get that not everybody has the same reaction to this virus—but right now, I don’t feel any different than when I did BEFORE I caught the Rona.

But I’ll do as suggested and stay home for the next few weeks just to be safe.

I wouldn’t want to pass it on to anyone else.

Which brings me to the reason why I’m glad I didn’t get the vaccine.

Had I gotten the vaccine, odds are, with how mild my symptoms have been, I never would have known I was sick to begin with.

I would have gone through my daily routine—working, teaching, going to stores, restaurants, etc. – and had been none the wiser to the fact that I was contagious with a potentially deadly disease.

I could have passed the virus on to those that didn’t have the ability to fight it off as well as I did.

And that’s absolutely terrifying. I could have been responsible for killing somebody and not even know it.

As we all know and even the most Left-leaning of vaccine advocates will tell you, the vaccine doesn’t immunize you against the disease. It just makes it so your symptoms are milder. If you get vaccinated, you can still get and transmit COVID to others. In fact, you can even get it and DIE, regardless of being vaccinated.

This is the SCIENCE…

And if I would have followed their suggestions and gotten vaccinated, I’d have never known I was contagious.

This is the dilemma we face.

Do we mask our own symptoms with a vaccine that could STILL wind up killing people?

Or do we take our chances by catching the virus and hope that the new COVID protocol will do its job and ensure we survive?

I chose option B…

And I’m sure all my friends, family, and students are happy I did as well.

But this is just day three of being on the Rona Train.

I’ll keep you posted if anything changes.
