Honestly, it’s not worth your time. I think constant nagging is the only way and you have to already have a close relationship with the person. My aunt convinced my uncle (microchip-level conspiracist) by just wearing him down for weeks. She’s amazing but I could never do that.

Omg I need advice from your aunt lol. And more than just the vaccine... I’m concerned about the overall thought process. Until people continue to think like that, we won’t all be safe.

A friend of mine told me I should have Narcan on hand for my boyfriend who does coke sometimes. I'm firmly against it.

She thinks I'm being cruel since it can be lifesaving and you can get it for free.

Any tips for staying injury free in middle age? My body seems to be falling apart. Before Covid, I injured my shoulder in a bad fall while skiing that would have kept me off the slopes for a year if the pandemic hadn’t. Last week, I pulled my lower back, also skiing. This is all after a 6 month recovery from Achilles tendinitis that the PT said was a result of running and hiking. I’m pretty active and in decent shape, but clearly I’m doing something very wrong.
