“I can’t take any more bad news. I won’t entertain that idea”

I am going to justify writing about ‘pandemic’ type stuff in my bipolar blog as you may spot how I reveal something of what may have been ‘a psychotic high’, I personally experienced, early in the UK’s first ever lockdown.

What I am sensing is that each of us has a point at which we switch off and say, “I can’t take any more bad news. I won’t entertain  that idea”

I accept it is VERY LIKELY that;

  • Good nutrition will keep almost all viruses in check almost all the time
  • I had a SARS-type infection (what came to be called COVID19) in November 2019, it was horrible but with extra C and D was over the worst in 2 days
  • Lockdowns
    • wreck economies such that the world can be transformed with the richest getting richer even quicker and the poor getting poorer even quicker
    • cause permanent disabilities for many
    • have caused many people to die early
  • Even:
    • a handshake (without gloves) provides a little oxytocin and allows me to feel valued
    • one hug per week boosts my mood and immune system massively
  • My burned leg would have healed in days had I been treated at A&E instead of being (irrationally) terrified when I arrived there because it had been radically altered. (I was unwell, believing that was where they were disposing of bodies of people killed by the government during lockdown!)
  • Relatives and friends of mine died due to NHS staff being less efficient. For example:
    • Some staff sent home due to false positives
    • Wearing ‘PPE’ (to protect against a virus that had been identified as less lethal than ‘flu for most of population)
  • The ‘jabs’ do a lot more harm than good (other than perhaps placebo-effect for some who have a good-ish immune system but were afraid to leave home until jabbed!)

I could go on and on, yet the point I want to get to is that my mind will not accept,

  • Research where unvaccinated women are developing menstrual and bleeding disorders from being in close, prolonged proximity to others who have been vaccinated with the mRNA vacccines, Moderna, mainly. The vaccinated are breathing out the spike proteins and the immune system in unvaccinated is responding with platelet dysfunction and clotting disorders. Others who have miscarried, although miscarriage is sadly all too common.”

It would seem that we all have a limit to what we find credible, yet that limit is not necessarily based on logic, evidence, proof… It seems more to be that we reject anything that would change our world-view so radically that we would cease to function.

I have written the above, revealing my weakness (in that I accepted a ‘conspiracy theory’ too far that  stopped me getting my leg treated). I do so as I hope it will prompt responses to my question,

Are we all accepting some apparently wacky ideas while rejecting others without wanting to ever delve into why the theories we reject are needed by others?

For anyone who has read the above rejecting all I believe, here is one wacky yet mainstream belief you may have bought into: “Lockdowns save lives” Polls show the majority in the UK still believe this, even though the very best a UK-style-lockdown can do is slow the spread of a virus but that slows the development of population immunity, which overall causes a longer more severe epidemic.

From all this you can tell I am still obsessed by how the world I knew seems to have changed so radically since March 2020, and wondering what my part may be in the new world order.
