Some Things Can't be Put Into Words

Updated: Apr 19, 2023

Captured By COVID, Deceit, Conspiracy & Death was a difficult book to write. It details the actual events I experienced while in a drug induced coma. If you’ve ever wondered what goes through the brain of a near death comatose patient, this book is for you. If you’re, into suspense/thrillers, this book is for you.

There were so many events happening; every time I opened my eyes I was confronted with a new challenge. I was so confused and my mind couldn’t process the events that were transpiring. I recall the pain, the wind, the smell all so vividly. I could smell the food being cooked nearby, feel the radiation being shot into my body, and taste the sand that was blown into my face, day after day. What wasn’t prominent was my location, where was I, why was I alone, and why was I being tortured.

With everything happening, I found it extremely difficult to trust anyone. Some things were so traumatizing that I couldn’t find a way to put them into words. I wanted to make sure every word in Captured by COVID was the truth, so to try and describe something that I couldn’t comprehend was not an option. If anyone asked about it, how would I answer?

So many people don’t understand and can be very hateful on social media. I get a lot of hate messages. At first it was difficult, but now, I know that they are just uninformed. They see the title of my book and assume that it’s 100% about COVID, political conspiracies, masks, vaccines, etc… It’s NOT. This book is a story that I felt had to be told. Doctors, nurses, family members…, anyone that must deal with life and death, or has been around comatose patients, need to read this.

Since writing this book, I’ve received several messages from readers telling me that they or a family member has experienced similar events. I would never had known if it hadn’t happened to me. I lived these events. While my body laid paralyzed with tubes in every orifice, my brain, soul, and conscience were somewhere else.

A friend read my book, then contacted me with a lot of questions. We met and after our discussion, she handed me a book by Jodi Picoult titled “Wish you were Here”. She said the book’s story was similar to my experience. I was appalled. How could she write a fiction book about the covid torment? I couldn’t look at the book for weeks. Then, one evening, I decided to sit and read a few pages. I wanted to hate this book with every fiber in my body, but I couldn’t. The more I read, the more I fell in love with this book and was able to see that she had done her research. She had taken letters from her readers and interviewed medical professionals. The hate I wanted to leave with had turned to love. I really, really liked Jodi Picoult’s “Wish you were Here”.

The only way I could legitimize, the scenario that unfolded with me was to relate it death. For example, think about what happens when you die. Your body doesn’t leave the Earth, whether it’s buried or cremated, your remains stay here. Does this mean there’s no life after death? Not at all. While your body remains here, your soul/consciousness travel to another realm. This is what happened to me.

It’s hard to explain this alternate life/reality; however, I hope I at least scratched the surface in my book. Take a minute and order Captured By COVID. If you feel you’ve been deceived, or you just don’t like my story, send it back for a full refund.

Regardless of whether you like the book or not, please leave an Amazon Review. Your opinion matters to me.
