I caught some sort of bug back in mid-March. I initially thought it was in April, until I saw I was posting about my symptoms back in mid-March on Reddit. But it has not fully gone away even still. Back in mid-March, I caught some sort of bug. Got a sore throat and chills. And also had a bit of a cough, on occasion had some really bad coughing spells. Including coughing and coughing uncontrollably to the point of getting out of breath and even dizzy and feeling like I was going to pass out from coughing so much. Didn’t really feel “sick” in the conventional sense though. Kind of strange really.
I do have asthma, and my inhaler did get rid of the coughing bullshit. But still, it’s rather odd. Never normally get this during warm weather, like it has been. And not sure I’ve ever had the uncontrollably cough and cough until I get dizzy and feel faint thing. In the winter when it’s dry I sometimes get a cough, but not in the spring. But my inhaler seemed to take care of that, so maybe unrelated? Another odd thing that happened was that I woke up in the night and had these weird itchy welts, kind of like hives but not. I’ve had hives before, and it wasn’t exactly that. These welts were very large, far larger than any hives that I have ever had. These massive welts just appeared suddenly for no reason at all one night.
I didn’t think about it much, just kinda ignored it as nothing life threatening happened or anything. But in the context of the chills and sore throat just coming back on and off, it’s a bit fucking weird. Last night, I woke up in the middle of the night….. SHIVERING. For no fucking reason. Because last I checked the thermometer it was 77. Kind of hot, yet I woke up in the night unexpectedly feverish feeling and shivering, cold, and sweaty. It really was/is quite bizarre. My mom had a similar experience, but it went away for her….. for me, not so much. It’ll seem to be gone, and then the next thing I know I wake up in the night with the chills, the sore throat comes back, etc.
And another odd thing is that my lips have been weirdly parched and flaky, despite it being humid out and warm. Which is rather odd for me. This normally happens for me when it’s cold out, like 20 or 30 degrees in the middle of the day and near zero at night sort of cold like where I grew up when I lived up north. Not when it’s 70 degrees and a nice day. But oh well, fuck it. I’m not dead. At least, I don’t think I am. If this is the afterlife, I guess I’ve gone to hell, because 2020 and the rest of the forseeable future is a fucking pile of shit.
I guess things could be worse. I’ve kind of gotten a bit used to it to be honest and try to ignore it as much as possible. I have absolutely no clue what this is. Or whether it has anything to do with this fucking virus that China released on us. Under normal circumstances, I’d see a doctor. But nowadays, nope. Go in a waiting room full of sick people? No thanks. If my symptoms are unrelated (which hopefully they are), good chance I’ll wind up with corona FROM THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE OR THE WAITING ROOM.
Even if someday this bullshit goes away, there’s one way in which I have changed forever. And that is that I will NEVER buy anything from China. That shithole country will never see a penny of my money ever again. Keep in mind that this virus originated 900 feet away from a virology lab in Wuhan. Is that a coincidence? Fuck no. The virus came from that lab in one way or another. There is no doubt about that. I don’t care what the CDC says or any other agency.
They’re just telling people that it “didn’t come from a lab” to not incite anger against China. But is it really so wrong to pissed at the people who have created a situation where people are getting sick and can’t safely see a doctor without worrying about possibly catching something worse than what they already have. I think not. I think that the people have every right to be angry at the CCP for doing this to us. And for destroying our economy. And causing lots of people to have trouble putting food on the table.
But it’s best to be pissed in a constructive manner, because if we come together, there is something that we can do about this. We can all stop buying Chinese products in any form, even if it means paying more in some cases. All of their resources come from the west, and if the west comes together and decides to stop supporting dictators by not purchasing their products……. guess what, the dictators no longer have their power. Because they bit the hand that feeds them, and it’s up to us to stop feeding them.
The reason why I will never buy China-made products ever again goes far beyond my own personal experience, even if my symptoms are caused by the virus. And even if this shit never goes away. Because you know what, I can deal with the shit I’ve been experiencing lately. I can deal with waking up in the middle of the night shivering when it’s 75+ degrees in my room, because of some random bizarre fever/fever like symptom that keeps coming back. I can deal with not knowing if this bullshit whatever it is will EVER go away…… And it might not, whatever the fuck this is whether it’s caused by the virus or not. But the prisoners whose organs have been harvested can’t just suck it up and deal with what they’ve been through.
These people have literally had their organs ripped out of them and used to save the elite, ruling class over there. And they have done this to hundreds of thousands of people. Innocent people, whose only crime has being being born within the borders of the CCP’s dictatorial regime when one of their elite happened to need an organ. I don’t like giving my money to dictators.
Because there are people who’ve they’ve subjected to a level of suffering that most of us in the free world will never understand. I can’t understand it, and I honestly doubt anyone here can. Over there, no one has any rights at all. If you are Chinese, the CCP can literally rip your guts out of you and give them to an ailing official who happens to need a new organ. They can spy on people without a warrant, they execute more people than any country.
Many of them without a trial, some are killed by the dictatorial regime with no opportunity to even have their case heard. No rights whatsoever. And the virus that they released is killing people throughout the US and the rest of the world. And even for people who are 100% well right now and aren’t too worried about the virus at the moment, life is seriously fucked right now. They’ve wrecked our economy with this bullshit. But at the end of the day, they bit the hand that feeds them. So, I say we all come together and stop feeding them. I feel like you can learn from every experience in life, including the bad ones.
And that’s what I have learned from this one. I will never buy Chinese products ever again. And I feel like everyone should do the same. They wrecked our economy, made many of us sick, even killed some of us by releasing this shit. And they have killed many of their own people. I don’t like giving my money to dictators, even if they’re not spreading diseases to us. But if they are, fuck no. That’s where I draw the line. Personally, I’m not freaking out over the strange bullshit I’ve been experiencing on and off over the last couple months. Even if I did somehow catch the virus, it’s doubtful that my life is in any real danger. I don’t feel like I’m on the verge of death or anything. However, some people have died because of the act of biological warfare that they committed.
And regardless of what sort of virus I have that’s sticking around so weirdly long, I view the fact that I even have to ask the question as act of oppression. By a disgusting government that makes me far sicker than any disease ever could. For me, having to ask myself “Am I infected with their bioweapon?” was my final straw to never buy their crap merchandise no matter what. For some, maybe it was losing their job because of outsourcing many years ago. Because outsourcing cost millions and millions of jobs that will never return. So, I’ll pass on globalization. I’d rather be able to easily get a job and not be wondering if I’ve been infected with their deliberately released virus or not. They bit the hand that feeds them, and I say we stop feeding them. I’m sure as fuck not feeding them anymore after what the CCP has done to us. I miss not having to worry about waking up in the middle of the night feeling feverish and wondering if I’ve been infected with their virus.
