It’s been a year since the pandemic started taking its toll in Poland. In retrospect, however, I’d say I feel as though nothing had changed. My life is completely standstill, of course with some moments of greater activity which gives me the feeling of a relative normality.
The pandemic has deprived us of most important things, not only our lives, but also our time, which just keeps slipping by, not paying much attention to the omnipresent chaos. I’ve never even suspected that Poland could be facing so many waves. How many times can you hear that we are just preparing for the next wave or that we have just been hit by another one. Best surfers haven’t seen so many waves in their lifetime… you can trust me!
There’s one good question. Will it ever end? Of course, it will. Only when the ones who decided to test the new virus on the unaware people, will come to a conclusion that they’ve reached what they intended to. For the time being it doesn’t seem to be any close to that point. The spectators are still enjoying themselves while watching and waiting how this disaster movie develops. Surprisingly, the vaccinations started popping up just like mushrooms, amazingly quickly, but whether they could be called a success you’ll get to know when you vaccinate yourself and you manage to survive.
In my sincere opinion, these vaccinations had been planned before, and now they are being slowly introduced on the market not to make people suspicious, especially if they are looking for the last resort. Do I want to advise you against getting vaccinated? Or maybe I want to persuade you into vaccinating yourself? I’m not driven by any of these intentions.
Being a teacher, I’ve vaccinated myself. As all in all, I think that people should vaccinate themselves in general. I received AstraZeneca and my body reacted in a more or less typical way, quite a high temperature (39 degrees celsius) and a short period of weakness and tiredness, some of my colleagues felt much worse than that, so I shouldn’t complain too much. Do I really think that this vaccination will help me? I don’t really know. I do want to believe in its power. For sure everyone needs to make one’s own individual decision, and I’d like to emphasize the fact that any decision we take may turn out to be the wrong one. I hope that we won’t suffer from the side effects of these experimental coronavirus vaccines in a few years’ time. On the other hand, I want to believe that they will bring only the desired outcomes, which means a so called coming back to normality.
As it frequently happens in life, when the toys get into the wrong hands, people who expect that the least suffer the most. An artificially created pandemic has only one aim, taking control, introducing previously unpopular solutions and getting rid of the overpopulation problem. This almost natural selection is the best possible tool for achieving that purpose.
I hope that you will manage to take the best decision for yourselves and your families, no matter whether you get vaccinated or not, as the success rate of these vaccinations will only be judged by the history one day.
See you around!
