Everybody who should be apologizing to me is too busy pretending that covid never even happened.

We need more of this... all over. Real adults admit mistakes, make corrections and move on, careful to learn from their mistakes and not repeat them. Good for her!

How vindicated do you think Djokovic felt today? ; )

Well, of the 12 friends that shunned me or disinvited us from parties or piled on when I was kicked off the Master swim club (outdoor pool) while living in San Jose, CA area, not one has ever apologized or recognized my ‘right to choose’. But, I was never an asshole in return. I responded with love and that likely added to their cognitive dissonance. I hope they wake up before the next abuse play by our unelected health tyrants. And, I know they will do it again bec it was so easy last time. Until the general population of self righteous, know it alls, wake up and join the thinking people, we will have to fight mandates on our own again.

I Am Vaccine Injured.

And I Waffle Between:

1. "I Just Can't Imagine That The Vaccine Caused My Injuries." And

2. "It's Fucking Obvious."

I Am Leaning Heavilly On #1. ( 90% )

But Why ?

-Because I Was Afraid Of Being Shamed By Others For Not Taking It. So I Shamed Myself Into Taking It.

And Now, I Am Afraid Of Being Shamed For Blaming The Vaccine.

I Am A Fucking Idiot. I Really Hate The Unvaccinated.

First. They came with the masks and I said no big deal.

Second. They came with the lockdowns and I said it’s just a couple weeks to stop the spread.

Third. They told doctors how NOT to treat their patients, and I said seriously, WTH?

Then they came with vials of experimental gene therapy and attempted force. And it was (almost) too late.

Great news. I hope you will apologize to us for calling Jan 6 an insurrection soon.

My son was 17 during all the Covid craziness, and I refused to let him get the vaccine. He got so angry at me numerous times because it kept him from doing some stuff he really wanted to do such as an Outward Bound trip. Fortunately, he did not get the vaccine when he turned 18 (2022), and in March of this year, he told me “Mom, thank you so much for not letting me get the vaccine. You were right about everything.”

My pro-vax, former friends are keeping their mouths shut. It was quite an emotional roller-coaster. I realized that in the time of war or civil strife, the people to count on are those we least suspect. I was shocked at the cowardice. "My spouse and I were right." We are genuine Covid warriors.

Today, my son, who did not speak to me for months over it, finally admitted it I was right about Covid, and the shots, and the masks. He said it in about two sentences. Then he changed the subject. But I never thought I would hear it. I can’t tell you what it meant to me.

Thanks for the good news. I’m happy for you and really happy for your kids.

Congrats Alex. It must feel good. My parents and both my sisters can’t say one word to me that they may have made a mistake about their devotion to the vaccines. In fact one sister will never speak to me again for that and plenty of other cultural war issues. I found solace when my husband said in front of my three boys, “never forget that it was your mother you can thank for by not allowing you to take the Covid vaccines. You will need to always remember that.”

It'll never happen for me. I am a FAR bigger asshole than you could ever be. And they all know it. Also, I don't miss them.

Congratulations! You will get more and more of this, I definitely feel it changing and I hear it from people too. But the other day I was listening to Dr radio on Sirius and for the first time they allowed a caller on who dared to ask if there’s a high demand for unvaccinated Blood. The expert guest Dr immediately answered YES and. Expressed that hospitals and centers have been overwhelmed with Thís request.

That was the very first time I could say I felt vindicated- first that they even allowed this question but more that —the people know, they can try and silence them but the people KNOW!

I'm happy she apologized to you.

Here's a funny thing that just happened to me - I was talking to my sister-in-law (married to my brother who no longer speaks to me because I'm unvax'd and voted for Trump), well ... we were talking about people wearing masks these days. She said they were probably people with poor immune systems or they were UNVACCINATED. HA HA HA HA .... I told her NOPE, I would bet money on it. The unvaccinated are not out wearing masks scared of Covid. I sit here shaking my head she really thought that.

You’ve put your neck far beyond the safety of the turtle shell, to the benefit of many, myself included. I’m sorry for your personal pain & grateful for this outcome.
