windermereROYAL Why don`t people fecking listen? I`ve ventured out once in the last week, and that was only to do some shopping, but looking around it`s the `it can`t happen to me` ideology.
Get a grip you fecking melts, this is as serious as anything any of us will ever face in our entires lives.
I think I find it a bit hard to get worked up about as I was told in May 2017 that I had 3-6 months to live from a serious cancer. I was offered a 7 hour life changing op and two months in hospital to recover which "might" give me some extra time. I decided against having this treatment and that I would live out what was left of my life as well as I could and die a natural death. However, I did take steps to improve my diet and took probiotic and vitamin C daily and the cancer slowly healed and went completely within 6 months. The NHS has no explanation. I never even took one day off work. I doubt anyone will believe me but I have all the letters from the oncologist to prove it.
Once you have faced and accepted your own death it puts everything into perspective and it has made me realise that people in the rich western countries have too great a sense of entitlement and unrealistic expectations about what the health services can achieve. Perhaps COVID-19 is a good thing as it will make us all face the possibility of our own mortality and perhaps rethink our priorities.
