Thankfully I had these prepared beforehand, as I am feeling absolutely horrible today, after getting my 3rd COVID vaccine dose on Monday.  I have a fever, feel like I’ve been run over by a truck, headache, and dizziness… but it’s worth it!  Being disabled and considered immunocompromised, I’m thankful that the 3rd dose was made available to me. 🙏🏽

If you have any resources or events you feel would be helpful to the community, be sure to contact me with the details so I can share the goodies with everyone!
