In my corner of the world it has been heartening as the vast majority of the folks have risen to the occasion. If any thing our tolerance, patience and cooperation has increased. My wife and I have experienced just two negative interactions in the past 18 months from those that are Covid zealots and one was very minor.....I was admonished for standing on the 'wrong' red dot while in line at the beer store. But they stand out because they have been so infrequent.For me, it's shed light upon the human condition. You see a different side of people. In how they react, behave, and their perception of the world.
Sorry to hear! Stay strongA cancer scare this year, the loss of nearly half my income, and the fact that I'm being slowly crushed into poverty by medical debts is causing me far more stress than the pandemic as such, although a big part of my loss of income is directly related to it. Oh, and my cat's sick too.
Totally agree. Lizziie's posts are always so articulate, so informative and so relevant that she makes it easy to forget that she is as human as the rest of us. If that sounds trite Lizzie, I apologise, but you are so knowledgeable or know how to use the information so readily available on the internet, that we forget that you can bleed, just like the rest of us. My sincere compliments to you, I do hope that you recover from your predicament.Sorry to hear! Stay strong
Well, at least the cat is doing better. She has "the worst case of hyperthyroidism" the vet has ever seen, but will hopefully respond to the medication. She went full feral when I put her in the carrying case to take her to the clinic, though, and is now missing another canine tooth after trying to chew her way out. (She only has one fang left now.) She also went on a rampage in the examining room and threw up her breakfast all over the doctor. They had to sedate her just to be able to draw blood for testing, but all it did was "take the edge off."
Given my own experiences with the health care system over the early months of this year, I know exactly how she felt.
^ I have a friend who teaches English Lit, released from her university post at Covid start,
had fallen back onto video instruction and has been called by the City College of Chicago to resume
face-to-face classroom lectures this fall. The mask mandate here is mercurial, some yes, some no,
and with maskless major public venues with variant issues itza whole new ballgame.
Nice to see some getting back to normal. I feel sorry for most of us and for those who experience different kinds of sickness.
We are all wearing masks
