“I’m a self-diagnosed hypochondriac, ironic I know! I have spent the past 18 months in a perpetual state of anxiety, certain that I have contracted Covid-19 at least 3 times per day. Fortunately for me, this was all in my head. When I first started hearing that a vaccine was rolling out I was hesitant due to my aforementioned hypochondriac ways. I’ve always been irrationally worried that I would sprout a third arm or just drop dead instantly. Luckily for me, I began to read about how the vaccine was developed and tested. I quickly decided that the psychological impact of constantly living in fear did not begin to outweigh the infinitesimally low odds of having a complication from the vaccine, let alone the substantial risk of actually getting Covid-19 in the first place. I am now happily fully vaccinated and I can honestly say it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.”
