I follow a really beautiful person on Instagram…Chronically Courtney. Now Courtney is vaccine injured…BUT…Please read further before heading to her account and blasting. She still tells people to get vaccines, just do research before you get them. Which is just common sense, really?. Nothing is 100% guaranteed. What I REALLY love about her, specifically though, is that even though there are times her body flares up, and she gets unexpectedly upset. SHE KEEPS GOING. She has not let it “end” her life.
Which brings me too my blog topic today. One of the annoying things about her account, not her. Is that every time she makes a post about vaccine injury. Even when she SAY HERSELF, get the vaccines, do research. I guarantee you that anti-vaxxers jump on with the whole “Thank you Courtney, we should get rid of all vaccines…They have DESTROYED so many lives”.
I feel insulted for her sometimes, Courtney doesn’t really strike me as the type who thinks her life is destroyed. Her injury, has inspired her to do more. Heck, I’m nearly double her age…nearly…and she’s doing a lot more than I ever have.
About a year after my huge anxiety attack, people kept telling me to take this product called “Seremind”. It’s a lavender tablet. So I did…I took it for the whole month and I hardly got any sleep. So I stopped taking it and people weren’t…exactly annoyed, but…annoyed,lol…That I wouldn’t keep taking it. About another 6 months after that I was drinking my usual cup of chamomile tea before bed. Then it hit me, what about chamomile! I always drink it before bed and it helps, I always drink it if I’m feeling anxious and it helps.
So I started taking that about a year ago, still taking it.
As you can see though, even thought the majority of people take Seremind, it just didn’t work for myself. But Chamomile “Tablets” and tea do.
It’s just the way life is.
Which is one of the other things that annoys me about those anti-vaxxers. All of them go on about how they’re better than say someone like me. Who they clearly have no idea about. Because I “worship” western medication. Which isn’t true. So many of them call themselves “Pagans” or “Wicca”s, not realising that that is a belief system. I, myself, to use both Western and Eastern medication. I do do research before I start to take something.
There was this one “Wicca” who came onto one of Courtney’s post. Going onto complete strangers posts and making uninformed comments about them. I saw that she has apparently been taking something natural since the middle of last year to make her less judgemental…I couldn’t stop laughing,so I wrote “Well this clearly isn’t working”. Well that was a mistake,lol. She told me I ruined Courtney’s message. I was called hateful, and she’d appreciate it if I could stop making armchair assessments on her, since I didn’t know her. So I did the laughing emoticon again and reminded her that she chose to write armchair judgemental comments on people she doesn’t know. I just thought it was funny that someone who claims to be better than others because she’s all “natural” is not only taking something to make her less judgemental, but it clearly isn’t working for her,lol. But these others were medicine worshippers, because they think you should research before you take anything?
Update: (this is happening a lot lately,lol). I have now actually unfollowed Courtney,lol. While her message is generally thoughtful and kind. Like with a lot of people lately, she seems to have gone one way or another. ie vaccines are evil. I still stand by though, if you are vaccine injured. It does NOT mean the end of your life (like a lot of these anti-vaxxers say it is). You just have to find a different way to live it.
