When you have been in bed with this thing for 9 weeks, and know the after effects will last for a long time past this, reading this is just infuriating.
I mean I imagine it is infuriating for y’all too. But like, being sick and being in contact with survivors of this thing is a thing. I have talked to people who have heart problems like me, long term lung injuries, persistent vertigo, persistent ringing in the ears....
Kidney issues, persistent vomiting, random shooting pains no one knows how to diagnose. It’s just a disease we know very little about.
The lion’s share of what we are finding out is what happens in the thick of the virus, research on what is happening to many of us after-post virus is thin. And you watch folks shrug their shoulders and you’re like, what the hell is wrong with you?
America is consistently okay with widespread suffering as long as people of color are suffering a perceived “more”. It is just wild.
