I’ve been lucky so far. Not often do I get lucky. Actually more often than not I tend to be unlucky, but when it’s come to this whole covid thing I’ve been some of the fortunate few. I’ve never come down with it, nor have I ever tested positive for it, but there is no way I’ve been able to avoid it. I’ve been around people this entire time. I must be lucky enough to have the antibody.
In no way am I bragging, I’m just forever grateful because there is no way I could be self quarantined confined to four walls for fourteen days. I’d go insane. I just find it funny the way we treat covid. It’s like the same way we treat stds.
Hear me out here, I’ve known enough people that have been through both and have handled the situations almost identically. Let’s say you feel like you’re getting sick, the next thing you would do is get tested right. If that test comes back positive, you then have to retract and think about all the people you may have come in contact with. You then have to send out a shameful text full of disappointment and embarrassment for being the person that has tested positive and passed it onto others. You’re then looked at as a pariah from there on out.
What’s the difference when you start to get an inch between your legs and get tested positive for some sort of std. You still have to retract and think about the people you may have come in contact with. You then have to send out that same shameful text, that’s full of both disappointment and embarrassment for being the person that has passed it along to others.
Hell at least if you get an std they have a way to anonymously text someone that they need to get checked out. I only know this from my one std scare. Luckily it turned out negative and I never had to send out one of those, “You should get yourself checked.” kind of text.
Since I got that anonymous text, every few months I click on the link and it comes to a home page and I am dealt two options; Needs to be tested and Needs to tell others. I always click on needs to tell others and pick a friend out of a hat and give them the same scare that I know one of them gave me.
Maybe that’s why they don’t have an anonymous message for covid… that’s kind of a sick joke. I mean covid can kill you. They can get rid of Chlamydia with just one pill. Covid is too serious to joke about, plus I’m having way too much fun with this anonymous std messenger.
