Thankful and Grateful Day 6 Covid Vaccine by HelpfulHannah

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

This post was inspired by Nina Hollander, Broker - I do not want to Jinx myself in Yiddish there is a word for it, but I do not know how to spell it I know how to say it spell it NO 

Why am I Thankful  this year ? There are so many little things, but the Big thing is my health. Yes COVID19 . There are many people who say no I will not get the shot the vaccine is a conspiracy. To me it was a gift from GOD .  All the brilliant people in the world worked day and night to find a cure for this horrible virus that took the lives of so many people.  

My closest friend had this virus before it was known to be COVID 19 . We were in a silly argument . We stopped talking friends for almost 40 years . I stopped in the Acme where one of her employes works I never go there, but something pulled me there and this Angel told me how sick she was. I left the store immediately and went to the hospital. 

She had just come off the ventilator, two days before we vowed never to let anything come between us again. Everyday I went to visit and even took her clothes to go home in as they had to cut her clothes off when she was admitted .  People say you cannot get it again she did.  She to this day works from home and is afraid to go out in fear of catching the virus again .

Three months later they closed the state down because of COVID virus including Real Estate . Some agents worked anyway not me, I was scared and not going to risk losing my license. Plus, I knew agents who came down with the virus and God rest their soul died. What a terrifying time it was like a science fiction novel but real life .

 I am thankful so thankful for Covid vaccine even though when I get the shot I feel a little tired for a week or two .  The first shot I got what was called Covid arm and was really scared my good friend Kathy Streib  looked it up she gave me more info than the doctors did. It is your immune system fighting and making you strong . 

I really believe the Covid shot did build up my Immune systems as I have not had as many cold or infection as I usually get.  

Was this virus caused from germ warfare as one of my friends who writes science fiction novels believes? Perhaps it was but come on they found a way to control it no he thinks it is a plot to get rid of us . Then he says the vaccine is a way to get rid of us . 

I am thankful everyday they found a vaccine to ward off this terrible virus

I just got my booster did you receive your vaccine?

Hannah Williams I appreciate your openess about how you feel in regards to the vacine. Basically I got the shot because it was free. I was not scared at any point or worried about the virus at any point. I also respect those who oppose getting the shot for what ever reason.

Here in the big city it was really Bob "RealMan" Timm  scary . I have a friend that refuses to get it . It does not stop me from seeing him or going places with him . i have some friends who still will not eat indoors except in secret but they will go shopping . to me that makes no sence

Because of our Air Force Base and people coming and going from all over the world Minot was one of the first hot spots for ND Hannah Williams . Like your friend, we knew many who had it who didn't know what it was... it was "the crud going around". Yes people here have died, maybe a surprising number for our town of 40,000 but I've never worried... that is what is so wonderful about a strong faith. If I live or if I die I'm a winner either way.

I was told I had Covid when the hospital made me get tested before a complete hysterectomy with two large masses to remove cancer.  Surgery was postponed 3 weeks.   I had a stroke after that, right before my surgery.  They say the stroke was probably a result of the COvid.   I have still not received the vaccination.  I have competed 19 rounds of chemo, and now cancer free.  Still not sure if I will or will not get the vax.   I agree with Bob,  I am not fearful of it.  Live or Die, I know my destination, and it is a win win.  God saw me through cancer for the last 7 months... for that I am extremely THANKFUL!

Joan Valverde  I have a very good friend margie she also because of health reasons cannot get the vaccine and that is fine and totally understandable. Get well and God Bless you too have so much to be thankful for

Miss Hannah Williams - I am with Bob "RealMan" Timm and Joan Valverde - never have I ever feared the virus. Our body. Our choice. If someone wants the VAXX - go for it. 

If they don't - that is okay too. 

It is good to know you are thankful. It seems to give you some comfort and peace. 

Cheers to your good health! 🍾🥂

Hi Hannah- thank you for your kind mention. I remember your Covid arm. I've had family members get the virus and they felt like it was a mild case of the flu. Covid, matter what, it's important to keep your immune system strong.

Yes Kathy Streib you were my angel at the time - thank you

Glad you knew what was the right thing for you to do Hannah.  A close friend of ours, who worked in an hospital emergency room, told us all the horror stories, yet she did not get the vaccine and recently just lost her job...

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400  that is an unusaul story wow . My dearest friend that I think I mentioned is an author of science fiction and murder mysteries will not get one either . He frowns on me when I get it and each time I get sick from it even the booster . He says see and I say NO it is boosting my immune system . Which I believe  but then again I was exposed to it with my friend and I did get a  broncial invection that lasted a month but I responded to anti biotics

Hi Hannah... I said early on that as soon as a vaccine was available I would be amongst the first in line. And I was... and then I was amongst the first in line for the booster shot. If nothing else, it provides a certain peace of mind. I've had three Moderna shots... and had absolutely no symptons except for a sore arm for a couple of days. For that I am grateful. By the same token, I don't believe a one size fits all solution is a good one and there are people who should not get vaccinated for various reasons.

Nina Hollander, Broker  I agree for me I am thankful as you are

Hannah I am glad you and your old friend were able to become friends again.  The two of you are blessed to have had that second chance. 

As far as the vaccines, both me and my wife have gotten the vaccine plus the booster.  Neither of us had any reaction to it, and I would recommend getting it.  HOWEVER, I do not think anyone or any government has the right to MANDATE a person to get it.  It is their right to take the risk of not getting it or not, they are not putting me at risk.  If the vaccinated are at risk from the unvaccinated, then the vaccine does not work, and the argument to get it does not make any sense.

I did not let COVID keep me from doing as much as I was able to.  I did and continue to do as much as possible to not let it control my life.

George Souto our city was closed down so there was a point in my life when it did control my life . I also lost many friends and business associates to this dreadful virus . To me the vaccine was just like getting a flu shot or when I was like a child getting the polio sugar cubes - but who am I just a plain Jane named Hannah that saw a science fiction movie come to reality 

Stay well and  I am Thankful for our friendship -- Yes I did get my booster shot the only reaction I had was dreaming wonderful dreams

I'm grateful to be fully vaccinated too.  It has provided some measure of liberty, I feel I wouldn't have had otherwise!

Hi Hannah! I read your story on Nina's post earlier and that just made my heart smile - someone popped into your life to let you know about your friend. She was just off of the ventilator and now, your fabulous friendship has been renewed. I'm SO happy for you!

And, like you, I got the vaccine and am thankful I did. I had COVID before it was a 'big deal' and was sick as a dog for 2 solid weeks. I would never wish that upon my worst enemy!!

Debe Maxwell, CRS  I had a horrid reation to the vaccine and was told that it may have been because I was exposed to the virus who knows but my anti-bodies are working and I am happy for my health yes so grateful for all these scientist who developed this vaccine  - Happy Holidays
