The forgotten side of COVID: post-treatment effects.

A front line nurse gives a report on what we don’t hear much about: the effects of rough treatment regimens and the eventual costs for recovery.

  1. Sobering and heartbreaking, I hope no one I care for has to endure such pain and despair.

    Seems like wearing a mask and hunkering down, regardless of the cost still makes sense.

  2. I agree, and I will continue to keep up my safety practices.

    If reading that entire piece doesn’t drum into us the absolute necessity for the young and older to adhere to the safety guidelines we have been given, I don’t know what will.

    And, those final thoughts had me choking back my emotions for all it’s worth.

    How do we meld the words of this article with the cold, uncaring words from DJT? We can’t.

    1. As a retired business owner in that vulnerable age for COVID threat, I spent my life, after serving in the military, paying taxes, hiring people and generally doing what citizens should to keep America strong.

      Like many of us seniors, it seems disheartening to read that perhaps we need to sacrifice our lives, again, for the good of the collective. A few pols have so indicated and now the regime is saying the economy “uber alles”.

      “ Yes, will some people be affected? Yes. Will some people be affected badly? Yes. But we have to get our country opened and we have to get it open soon.” DJT

      This is a grim version of “what have you done for me lately”.

      The reality is that the toll on old folks is lamentable, but the frontline workers are suffering terribly and they are young. The economy open or shut will not affect them either way since the virus has not bought into the plan.

      Happy Wednesday BTW!
