Are any of you being treated differently by friends and family because you’re taking care of positive and PUI Covid patients? I almost feel like it’s a crime bring an RN right now. No one will come near me. All my family that lives out of state cancelled my summer vacation trips to come see them. The family that lives close by me won’t let me In their houses. I’m feeling so alone and very isolated.

They are simply terrified. I'm sure they respect you WAY more than you know. This too will pass. I have been treated like a big cootie as well

They will come around. I am so sorry.

I've experienced the same thing, even though people say they're grateful. It will change - just trying to hang in there

People are just trying to be careful. I do understand how lonely this time is. I as a nurse have isolated myself from family and friend so that I dont expose them to Covid although I may be asymptomatic. This has been very difficult for us all to deal with. Be gentle with yourself and your family. I'll be praying for you and your peace & comfort.

Fear comes with all faces. Please try not to personalize it. Keep keeping on, yours is a very noble profession and your reward is in making a difference in the lives of your patients!

I work in a SCI/TBI hospital. We have had no covid patients here. Despite that, and mentioning that numerous times, I still have some family who won't be around me without masks regardless of where we may be at. I have others that have no problems being around me in my home (or theirs) whether or not we have masks on. It just depends on their fear factor. I'm sorry you are so isolated. My heart goes out to you and all the nurses working in direct contact with Covid pts.

Yeah very true. Even colleagues who don't work with COVID look at places like ED as danger zones

Yes, I am being “treated” differently, as well. That said, at least a part of the difference in treatment is attributable to me - I’ve been very protective of family and friends due to concern I could be an asymptomatic/presymptomatic vector.
My father, my spouse, and one of my children all have pre-existing conditions that could result in poorer outcomes if they would contract COVID-19. So....
My friends (in the non-healthcare group) treat me like a pariah LOL - BUT, I understand their concern, if not their anxiety.
Eventually, some degree of herd immunity, and/or a vaccine will likely allow us to rejoin society.

Yes

Yes, my friend had cancelled on me this July.

is it just me or is the SPAC/IPO growth making everyone in PA miserable? seems like regular engagement teams are being thinned out cuz many people are getting “great learning opportunities” from these SPACs. covid has also accelerated the number of people quitting so every team is becoming understaffed. revenue is booming for PA, but i feel like no one is caring about physical/mental health and i think it’s a huge issue. these mental health awareness emails we get are pointless imo.
