In 2019 I became ill as I write in the above piece none of the three family with me caught

Covid despite changing my sweat soaked bedsheets drinking out of the usual glasses

Using the same bathroom/toilet.' For a whole 5 weeks, I was week in the joints and chilly

For 4 days? Before a dark depression which lasted half a day set in when this lifted I was

In extreme fatigue with a weight feeling between my shoulder blades lasted 6/8days?

4 days in I vomited after there was the feeling that a lump of whatever was stuck in my throat

This lasted 2 days my eyes were like full of salt feeling I lost my taste sense around  day 6/8

Also as much as I drank the thirst would not go bedsheets stank of a weak urine smell 

And I had to Sleep on my side or in a chair to breath yet I came through I feel for anyone hit

By this disease but it's not the complete  killer it's made out to be  although I beleive I came close to it'  56 million people died each year pre

Covid (source world health data) thank you for reading & God bless

In La Crosse we see it's not very pretty; a goliath is towering but Altman is gritty' The numbers are stacked the way I see, but number One can make your enemies flee I'd faced the foe five weeks in all, with burning eyes cold sweat did fall; the darkness Loomed as with ears on fire; I staggered and crawled under covids fire no mask no gloves For me three cared; If we had known more we might have not so well fared' Yet this is Dec 2019 the UK was supposed to have no sickness there' yet many signs I Bore that year; a weight on my back; and delirium dreary wore, depression stalked the walls closed in My chest near solid, air seemed oh so thin, in my nostrils thick the stench extreme, yet I won through with the Lord and prayer; a quinine tonic ever there, till the storm within me calmed then I knew My sight was harmed.' My retina displayed clear dots of light; I thought what type of flu? And rued The fight' yet after weeks my sight was improved , I'm healthy now my breath is well' For 99'6 percent survive that's the fact I know to tell' and that's why I strive; against misinformation Against the tide' that beats against the free world's will, yet don't despair dilute the swill James Altman makes a worthy stand, so Rally Rally around the man' no one is right Before the Lord, yet to serve in adversity we are called'

so true, so true. the survivors are Many!! Not enough to close down global economy. Those with underlying health problems and very elderly can stay home and use safeguards. Why the young and healthy? It's so rare for them to die. I am sorry you experienced so many bad effects. All those I know who got covid got through it very well. Only my one sister got it really bad and she recovered. I know of nobody personally who died. REMEDIES like HC were banned and denied us. I am appalled.

Thanks Andrea, I went to as much detail as I could to let people Know I could look others in the face, when I say the lockdown Protocol has been too harsh, if I had died then it would not have been known as a covid death anyway, when I did see a medic he said you have got through a big bad flu' but its been in the west longer than officials will admit and the big lie is high transmissability.'

2)P.s. I got through this one though(think uv Bill Murray in movie, what about bob) ”barely”; ‘cause uv your last comment to me, I had 2 take a Valium 20mg 2 get through it, yet it was touching, so 2 a sobering reminder of life as we know it. It’s just poetry sir, I get by reading what I read aside poetry. Merely banter sir. Now if we went out 4a hot chocolate sometime and learned each other, yep..never now about friendship so, joe, until later, and walk with our Lord and pray..much love, james

If I am blessed by the 'Word' then there may be more Words from me, interesting description you touched on James, and who knows from where the turn of phrase You employed was from.? I tend to try being more open To such 'having been tutored by.....I have say it Him..' What is man that He notices him? The son of man that He visit him? Oh wretched man am I unworthy of such grace! God bless you James'

Also many blessings to you Carol, I had to write this on hearing about James Altmans stand, I don't know him And may well not agree with all he may say if I did ' Yet here he is on it 80 percent here and we need free speech'
