I do not have a TV so get my news online and through various sources. I admit I can be out of touch sometimes. I rarely get "celebrity" stuff unless I check the additional choices YouTube gives while watching a video/movie. Today, Shania Twain came up. Although not a country fan perse (although yes, there many country songs I love) Shania has always delivered interesting "out there" country and pop music I can sing and dance to. After watching the documentary of her making of "man, I feel like a woman," I chose the next suggestion of an interview.
At 16:00 she speaks candidly of her life threatening COVID infection and subsequent pneumonia. I had no idea.
She has also had Lyme disease, which I knew as I also have it. Having been through so much, from losing her parents at a young age and becoming her child sibling's soul lifeline, losing her voice from Lyme nerve damage to having a husband dump her, she still makes 57 look good! Do I sound jealous? Hell yes a little pang, because damn, not only is she a great beauty, a remarkable spirit, and an amazing singer/songwriter, she turned the COVID experience into a song! All in all it was an uplifting experience from our Canadian country darling.
