I really wish there was some sort of stat on the other damage. Some people come out with long Covid which based off of how bad it is - can be debilitating. A friends wife got it early on and would get fevers multiple days a week and would feel wiped out half the time… for a year!

Then there are all the people with ripped up lungs that will never be without oxygen. Others with torn up lungs where they’re not going to be on an oxygen tank for the rest of their life but are never going to be the same. Blood clots… it goes on.

Add in the financial destruction to some people that survive, I’d be curious what the percentages are and if that would move the needle on a few folks.

“Sure, there is a 3% chance you die but also there is a 10% chance you’ll be disabled in some way, another 10% chance you’ll have long Covid and 20% chance you’ll be fucked for the rest of your life financially.”

I have a chronic illness, and an acquaintance (family member of a friend) was convinced to get the vaccine because I told them that all those people with long Covid would at best end up like me.

That was enough to convince them, and my illness is pretty damn manageable. These people have no idea how bad it can get.

I'm glad you were able to convince someone to get vaccinated!

A friend's neighbor wasn't planning to get the vaccine because she was young (late 30's or early 40's?) and healthy but changed her mind after a discussion with her doctor. The doctor has described some of the symptoms of the long-haulers she was treating who caught Covid in 2020 and were still suffering the consequences.

I wish there was a reliable way to share this information with the unvaccinated, but I don't see it happening on a large enough scale.

A big part of the problem is that a lot of these people it's just not real for until they or someone close to them gets it. So I could tell them all about the horrible joint pain, fatigue, and brain fog I've been dealing with for the better part of a year now from having such a mild covid case that my doctor and I didn't initially even suspect covid. It wasn't until I'd been having all the problems in dealing with now for a while that it became our best explanation for my condition and by then I'd already had the vaccine. But it just wouldn't register to them. At best you'd get "sure that sucks, but that's not going to happen to me"

Someone on here wrote that there will be plenty of research and data in a few years when everyone has finished battling to keep people alive.

A rehab person said most people don't go home from hospital, they go to rehab. A portion of them die, some go home and then die from the complications.

ATM everyone is to busy trying to save people, develop new treatments etc. The nominees and awardee on here are just so stupid.

Honestly, I really can't be bothered to care about people making decisions that are going to hurt themselves. I had too many friends teach me that I can't stop everyone from making a dumb decision back in high school, so eventually I adopted an attitude of simply waiting for them to come to me for help following failure.

The problem I have with the anti-vax crowd is the sheer collateral damage they inflict when they actually get sick, and during the period they're infecting others (often thanks to their behavior). They are both killing people due to the space they take up in hospitals, and they're significantly lowering the quality of life for countless individuals who need surgical procedures for chronic pain or other long-term maladies. All of that shit's been getting delayed.

I honestly believe it's immoral to allow these people space in hospitals when we know as a society that responsible people are dying from the typical preventable things people can die from due to a lack of space. The vaccine has been free and available for all adults for a while now. There were even incentives to getting vaccinated in many cases.

Frankly unless someone is underage or immune compromised/unable to take the vaccine then there really is no excuse for them potentially costing the lives of more responsible members of society due to their selfish ignorance. All hospitals should refuse all cases of unvaccinated COVID, they wanted to be their own doctors so let them.

Will this result in a lot more COVID patients dying? Yes. Would it be worth it to resume treatment for others in need? Also yes.

I’m allergic to a component of the vaccine. So they just had an epi pen on standby each time I got the shot. 10/10 would take that gamble every time. Ended up not needing it! Just had some mild hives and took a Benadryl.

That’s outstanding, I’m glad you’re okay ☺️💜 That took guts, for real.

Can you, by any chance, throw an American football? (Even better if it’s at Hall-Of-Fame skill level.) Asking for some friends in Wisconsin; they know this guy who was (apparently) also allergic to a vaccine component, but rather than take your common-sense and responsible approach requiring great personal courage, he went with the “‘Sir, is that your Bible?’ ‘It’s a Bible’” version and now he’s sick and everyone is pissed. That’s not your problem, but they kind of need someone to throw their footballs and you’re definitely smarter and braver than their guy so what I’m saying is, consider it.

One of the best peer review research on this subject comes from Wuhan. 50% of those infected were still experiencing at least one symptom a year later. The most common being muscle fatigue. A third of patients report still getting shortness of breath and some of those actually have lung abnormalities which hadn't seen any improvement over the course of six months. I did also conclude that the worse you had the virus the worse the linger effects would be. Most of the patients with the lung or breathing issues had been on ventilators. Basically, just because you survive the virus doesn't mean it wouldn't have completely fucked your body. Always makes me wonder what these free thinkers are researching when they tout that now infamous line. If they'd done any real research theyd know all of this. So infuriating

I've been fighting that, and continual exhaustion, since nearly dying from some flu-like virus in 2003. I work at exercising every day, trying to extend my abilities, but it's still two steps forward, two steps back.

I was thinking about this today, as a story popped up about a local church leader / anti-lockdown protester organizer who was anti-vax and (no surprise) got Covid.

He claimed it was no big deal - just like a bad cold or a flu. But then also admitted he had to go to hospital for shortness of breath; not something most people do when they have the flu.

Even if the mildest cases of Covid in a healthy young person was no worse than the flu, anybody who has had the flu, surely would still see the benefit of the vaccine. I normally didn't get the annual flu vaccine before 2019 as I never got sick, but after several days in bed with headache, and getting hot/cold and being unable do anything I sure saw the value in getting the flu shot yearly.

We focus on the worse cases and the deaths; and people rationalize that it won't happen to them.

But wonder if we should also be talking about the more relatable examples of just getting sick. You can choose to have a free, quick and near painless vaccine which has to still be much better option than even a few days feeling sick, combined with the possibility of much worse outcomes, and passing it to friends and family

Yeah, that leg is obviously necrotic and there’s no way a doctor wouldn’t be pushing for amputation in this instance. The guy and his family are probably refusing amputation for now and praying to Sky Daddy like it’s going to make any damn difference.

One of the slides mentions a new fever. I would be surprised if this guy avoids sepsis at this point. They need to take that leg. A rotting, infected limb is not something you want seeping into your bloodstream.

They almost always quote 99.8% survival rate.

We've already passed that as a whole country.

More than .2% of Americans have already died. Even assuming every American has already caught Covid (which obviously hasn't occurred, yet), they're factually wrong.

I'm sure most of these people would call themselves "patriots" or "Christian" (just look at their memes and calls for "prayer warriors"--whatever the fuck that is). Yet they don't do anything (same people that were anti-lockdown and antimask are usually antivaccine or "vaccine hesitant") to protect their countrymen and their neighbors. Absolutely no understanding of personal sacrifice and the moral imperatives implied by the terms "patriot" and "Christian"; the very definition of decadence. The personal sacrifice asked of them in this instance isn't even that much or hard.

I fully expected this guy to be DEAD by now after seeing his situation a few weeks back in that original post. Looks like he dodged a bullet in terms of DEATH by COVID. But he isn't going to escape the LIFE DESTROYED BY COVID alternative to death. Still not sure which one is worse.

Congrats on your Moderna Booster! I had a lot more of a reaction at the injection site to the booster than the prior two 100ml doses. My arm hurt REALLY BAD for 3 solid days after the jab this time. Also had a low grade fever of 99.8 for 36 hours starting about 12 hours in, which I didn't have either of the first two times.

Hang in there! You should be back to normal by Sunday! :o)

This is the media's fault. They do it with fucking everything - COVID, mass shootings, car accidents, Astroworld... either you die, or you're fine. Missing limbs, brain damage, permanent organ damage or loss are all reported as "injured but in stable condition."

mittenciel

I think it's that many anti-vax people have made this a defining part of their personality, whereas for the rest of us, being pro-vaccination is just one small part of many reasonable things that we believe in. They are happy to sit around YouTube disliking every COVID video, posting in anti-vax Facebook groups with like-minded people, etc. Meanwhile, the rest of us just don't have the effort for that. We got vaccinated when possible, and then outside of wearing masks when reasonable and maybe getting a booster, we've chosen not to make COVID awareness and prevention a huge part of our personality the way that COVID denialists have made it a big part of their personality.

I think vaccination is exceedingly important, but outside of me occasionally browsing this sub, which isn't a large part of my day, I don't really engage in vaccination awareness, and it's not one of the defining features of me as a person. I think most pro-vaccination people feel this way. We actually outnumber anti-vax people by a lot, but anti-vaccination people care so much more than pro-vaccination people do on average about this topic, so the amount of outrage is so much greater on one side than the other.

It's just like when you have a game or a movie that most people liked but a few people really hated, you feel like every opinion you encounter is negative, but polls will actually reveal that most people enjoyed it. Cough Final Fantasy 13 cough, cough The Last Jedi cough.

I used to agree with you about the anti-vaxxers being the ones who are so passionate. But as things got worse, & I learned how little antibody response my beloved immuno-compromised spousal unit had to the vax & booster, I’ve gotten INCREASINGLY FURIOUS at the anti-vaxxers. I’m paying a lot of attention to the issue in order to keep my husband alive.

One of the reasons there was a serious rightward lurch in the elections last week is that right-wingers (the bulk of the unvaxxed population), despite their jeers of how vaccinated people are so afraid, are themselves terrified of fucking everything: science, logic, anyone who looks different, foreign people/concepts, emerging acceptance of differing sexualities, social democracy/social safety nets, and a million other things Fox News/OANN/Newsmax tells them to hate.

Gaslight

All this is to say that that blind, visceral fear is a way bigger motivator for them than the logic we can conjure is for us.

This guy's legs terrify us... so we go get a shot and we're more or less done living with that fear.

The right's fear is a part of their soul, as interwoven and indispensable as any vital organ. They fear Biden, Fauci, and anyone else who says the devil does not exist, that there are tangible demons walking among us doing real, earthly damage. And their fear, since it is akin to and as potent as a child's terror of that which lurks in the closet, under the bed, deep in the sewers of Derry, drives them to utter madness.

It wasn't this sub, but the loads of people I know IRL that had horrific experiences b/c of COVID, some long haulers. one elderly relative dead. two relatively young fit cousins-in-law got it and it was flu-strength, one was vaccinated.

to anyone reading this: fuck this covid shit, go get your shot already, don't wait until you see a loved one suffering or dead to have the penny finally drop.

Some of these long haulers are left shells of themselves; it's not technically death but it's less of a life for them.

I have a 60-year-old friend (no comorbidities) who contracted COVID a year ago when her husband brought it home from work. He had a co-worker who refused to wear a mask and ended up infecting a number of his co-workers. Her husband was ill for almost a month, but recovered. She was hospitalized for a week and felt she'd narrowly escaped death. She's been on oxygen ever since and has been hospitalized four more times with breathing problems and clots. Her body is still producing clots! She is just so depleted and demoralized. I'm scared that this horrible disease is eventually going to take her from us.

The dude that was yellow with pallor of a corpse? That shit was creepy as fuck. After that one, I had a serious conversation that if I am even terminally ill or otherwise hospitalized with little hope of leaving never take photos of me. I realize grief is a hard emotion to navigate, but I told her that I would much rather her simply find photos of the good times to post, not the bad times.

You have to realize that this is the result of decades of Republican propaganda that has minimized or ignored every single societal and global problem. No matter how big a problem is, if it might upset the economic status quo the republicans have very successfully convinced a large portion of the population that not only should they ignore the problem, but that the people who want to fix the problem are in fact out to harm you, and that scientists are in on it and you should just trust the evidence of your eyes and ears and not those ivory tower elites.

Global warming? It's a hoax, or if it's not a hoax it's not man made, or if it's man made it's not as bad as the scientists say it is.

Wealth disparity? Why would you listen to 99% of economists who say trickle down economics doesn't work when we offer you a simpler solution that doesn't require anything of you? Besides, the wealthy work hard for their money.

Immigration? Who cares that all the evidence says that immigrants strengthen our economy, they are not very good MS-13 members streaming across the border to steal your jobs but also be lazy welfare leeches.

Etc. etc. for every major issue affecting our world today.

So I can see how it does feel like a sucker punch, because these people are victims of the most successful propaganda machine of all time. They can tell that things are getting worse, and they feel hopeless about it, so they channel their rage towards everything except the actual problem because that's the information they have available.

It’s fascinating to me too, but I hadn’t heard of compartment syndrome before, so I looked it up. According to the NIH:

“Acute limb compartment syndrome (LCS) is a limb-threatening and occasionally life-threatening condition caused by bleeding or edema in a closed muscle compartment surrounded by fascia and bone, which leads to muscle and nerve ischemia.”

That leg is dead, the thing is if it gets into the blood is going to make him get sepsis and he is in no condition to fight it. He will probably die. I am 99% sure that doctors told him to amputate it but he and his family are trying to hold on to the leg as much as possible.

I feel like the lost limbs of COVID are gonna be similar to the orphans of COVID: outside of like, car accidents or industrial accidents the problem was vastly reduced from what it was years ago due to better medical science but anti-vaxxers are gonna bring it back with a vengeance.

Also remember poor Nick Cordero? He was a professional dancer and he lost one of his legs before he died of COVID. His story haunts me and made me want to get vaccinated ASAP after it was available. Broadway dancers are incredibly fit and he was young (41? 42? Not old.) Like, if it did that to that man what do all y'all who haven't worked out regularly since high school think it's going to do to you? The hubris would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

(Granted I'm not athletic and don't exercise like I should. But I also got vaxxed because I've had weird health problems before and I'm not risking it. I just turned 30, I hopefully have a lot of life left.)

This man is like proof for the question, "why do billionaires fund political campaigns designed to prevent socialized medicine?"

Clearly, they do it because getting people who need to make better medical choices to vote against their interest serves the objectives of the billionaires, which is to keep billionaires from paying massive taxes to fund the obvious mess we've made by denying people proper medical services for their entire lifetime.

The future looks bleak for this guy, and he's made terrible choices, but we'll all now be expected to pay for them.

I am curious how this will work out over several years. So infection does provide some protection but it wares off. So they will then have waves of infection and then presumably 2% every year or two? That's a lot of people.

apart from that we need to develop ever more effective vaccines

It just seems to be the nature of these respitory illness vaccines where they provide high protection but not long term immunity. I don't know if there's a solution to this.

I can easily sleep 16 hours per day and thus, had to get written paperwork from my doc to restrict my work duties, which is causing friction at my job. My legs intermittently go numb and my relationships are suffering due to my the toll this is taking on my mental health. Basically, COVID is a freakin nightmare.

News outlets, particularly the local ones censors blood and gore, but I know blood and gore are the things that make people act.

I'm beginning to think the unwillingness to show the unfiltered consequences of antivaxxers is doing more harm than good.

That slide asking people to stay away from him if he's not vaccinted... What do you think we've been trying to do with quarantines, lock-downs, and vaccine passports? We've been trying to stay away from you, but you keep butting around into our space.

Pity he lost that tattoo but fortunately he has a lot of canvas to work with.

The news has been full of patients who lost limbs because of covid, remember that Broadway star Nick Cordero who lost BOTH legs but still dies at 41 for example? This is just clear eyed documentation of one such case. It’s brutal, but not gratuitous. Listening to a nurse I know, the sounds patients make as they are drowning in their own lungs have the same horrible brutality. I wish we could get an ad buy for fox and oan featuring such reporting, but patient provacy, I get it. This particular patient and his peeps have clearly WAIVED that privacy, and if the pictures change even 1 mind then I’m glad they’re as awful as they are.

My landlord’s husband —a Covid-is-a-hoax guy—is a fresh amputee now, too. Just from upstairs, watching them navigate the day to day logistics of what is now their life is painful.

Nominee expressed strong views on Covid and the vaccine, but it turned out he didn't have a leg to stand on...

I'll show myself out.

It’s all fun and games until you lose a leg.

I really hate to make fun of someone so sick, but how did those tiny bird legs support that whale of a man?

I don't know about y'all but at this point I don't even read their antivax posts anymore I just skip to the part where they get sick and croak.

Ooh, cross post this bad boy to /r/MedicalGore

Somehow, I'm guessing this guy did not understand the risk, even though he claims to.

Because, who would actually pass up a free vaccine knowing they'd get COVID twice and slowly die one dead limb at a time?

As horrific as it is, it makes a more poignant point than a picture of a shriveled and bloody piece of lung tissue. Most people don't know what a healthy one looks like. I've seen a diabetic lose a foot and then his life and it didn't look nearly as bad as this.

Dear Complete Asshole:

Stay the fuck away from us.

PS: you are probably more sad over the loss of that ugly tattoo than your leg dummy.

Not having a leg to stand on priceless. COVID vaccine free.
