Happy Sunday 3/22/2020 although it certainly doesn’t feel very happy does it.
This Coronavirus #covid-19 thing isn’t following any of the rules they thought it would. I wake up today to news of a 12 year old girl in Atlanta Children’s Hospital who got so sick shes on a ventilator. IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT THEY SENT HER HOME 5, YES 5 TIMES BEFORE HELPING HER.
If you or your child goes to the hospital and they say pneumonia and do not want to COVID test then act a fool like Denzel in that movie where they wouldn’t help his son with the heart condition and stay! Years ago my son was like 4 and had to go to the hospital they x-rayed his lungs but let us go home BUT the minute they say pneumonia in the lungs.. THEY MADE US BRING HIM BACK.. AND THAT IS WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN.You don’t send people home with pneumonia.
I worked in nursing and yes I do understand that hospitals are overcrowded, I get it. But we cannot allow children and elderly folks to be sent home over and over again when they need help BEFORE getting to the point of needing a ventilator!
That’s enough of my rant. But I came to you this morning merely to offer some support and also to offer to give you a voice.
My blog stormspeaks.de is down for a few days until my domain is given back to Godaddy so I can reset it up. De domains as it turns out renew in a totally diff way if you are a few days late than others. Paid to get it sent back to Go Daddy so now I wait.
But back on topic!!!
I WANTED TO OFFER YOU THIS ..
I have a podcast called Straight Talk With Storm some of you are listeners and have already said how much you enjoy it and what it means to you , thanks to you all.
If you haven’t listened, its a good listen There are about 28 episodes to help ya through quarantine.
BUT HERE IS WHAT I WANT TO DO:
We as sex workers many of us, me included do not know what the financial future holds for us.
Some of us, a few are already ill with the disease and others like me are waiting for our children’s test results to come back. It is a very scary and uncertain time for many of us.
I will be honest I am deeply concerned about how I will survive MAY or June financially.
I am scared speechless waiting for my child’s test results although she has no symptoms and worried also about my adult kids and my grandkids. 3 of which are asthma sufferers.
SO… I AM OPENING THE FLOOR!
EVEN IF YOU ARE SCARED, WORRIED, NOT SICK BUT JUST NEED THE PUBLIC TO HEAR WHAT THIS EXPERIENCE IS LIKE FOR YOU….
OR IF YOU ARE SICK AND WANT TO SHARE WHATS HAPPENING TO YOU IF YOU CAN SPEAK WITHOUT IT RISKING YOUR BREATHING….
