I am 13 months old now but it has been 1 year since I got angry. Although I was at the very beginning of the epidemic, I wish I had been more conscious, I still see needle marks on the child’s hands every day, I remember it every day, I regret it. I wish I would protect myself a little more and not let him or the people around me lick these pains. I wish I could hold my daughter as soon as she was born, ”he said.


Explaining that his family sees them as miracles, Gündüz said, “My siblings, my parents and my children are still tearing up when they look at us. Where did you come from? It is a miracle to be able to see it now. After going through such difficult processes, you live in isolation. We haven’t seen anyone for a year. I still carry the traces of the disease in my lungs. My shortness of breath continues. My high blood pressure became permanent. Pregnancy intoxication normally resolves after birth, but mine has not passed. I cannot use medication because I am breastfeeding. Everything in my life has changed. My back and muscle aches still continue.

“Despite these limitations, I cannot understand this comfort and people still behaving as normal, despite all the losses. Maybe it does not affect you, but the virus you carry affects a mother, father, someone’s child, and can cause losses. I have been living for a year longing for the days when I can take my daughter to the park. I’m afraid of the parks that disease will be transmitted. I want him to swing on a swing, to rush to the toys. “

Saying that the vaccine will also be vaccinated without hesitation when it comes to its turn, Gündüz said, “Because I have the effects I see with my eyes. For example, the father of a very close relative was 90 years old, he was vaccinated and survived very easily. While his son was staring at him, he caught Kovit, he suffered much heavier than him. His pains and troubles became much more. After seeing them with our eyes, it is not possible for me to not be overrun, ”he said.
