I have been very pulled in multiple directions, just like all of us, during this pandemic. I have tried to be very open and honest with you about all of it, through both my blog articles and my Facebook posts, because I want you to know that I am human, I question things, and I am, like you, scared and now, exhausted by this virus. I have investigated research papers, listened to extremely intelligent colleagues, and had my own experience in working with patients who have been affected by COVID. I still worry. I still question. I am torn. I wanted to give you an update on my thoughts on the pandemic.
I still look at things through a very foggy crystal ball. I don’t know what the future holds. We are in a once in a 100 year pandemic situation. This is crazy, unknown, uncertain, scary.
Through all of this, I have trusted medical professionals and the science to which they have dedicated their lives. I think the FDA and CDC have done their best with what they know; as have the pharmaceutical companies and doctors. This virus is strange and new. New discoveries are being made all the time, all around the world. I have to trust myself and what I know, and the people who are in the trenches studying this virus, the vaccines, and the treatments. They have access to more information and tools than I do. Do these professionals get some things wrong? Of course! I honestly believe that they are doing the best that they can in this situation. In reality, without them, we would have nothing- no information, no vaccine, no treatments. Are they making money? Yes- that is their job. Are the pharmaceutical companies making bank off the vaccine? Yes- again, this is what they do.
I am not blind- there is a lot the FDA, CDC, mainstream doctors, and pharmaceutical companies do that I am in complete disagreement with. I do not ascribe to the mainstream healthcare system that believes in covering symptoms with drugs that act as bandaids. I do not agree with the free use of many pollutants in our environment. I do not like that companies and people make money on making us and keeping us sick. That includes all of the industries involved in “health” care, our government, and our food industry.
However, we are in a global pandemic. These industries, while they have their issues, and big ones at that, are also those working to get us through the other side to a time without COVID- just like they did with Smallpox, Polio, and all of the other vaccine-preventable diseases.
