That’s where I am now too, but I’m sure it will pick up as I have children and they need more taking care of.

Go see them as much as you can. They miss you and want to see you. In my 20s I lived a couple miles away and rarely saw them. In my 40s and living 5000 miles away I get it but can only get back once a year for a couple weeks. With covid, and a kid, I jnow spend a couple months with them. Do what works for you, maybe a weekly video call in the mix will help too?

I just had a doc appointment and as I was walking up, I noticed 4 staff members with their masks completely pulled down below their chins until they saw me approaching. They then pulled their masks up but it made me uncomfortable. If masks are required in doctors offices, shouldn’t they remain on all the time even if patients aren’t in the immediate vicinity? Especially since covid can last in the air for hours. I’m vaccinated but higher risk

People need to start flying, booking hotels, visiting retail stores. We need our sanity and economy back. We need to understand that if we do not allow our cash to circulate we are all going to be in trouble pretty soon. Enough of just buying on Amazon, liquor stores, weed man etc. Go back to your normal life and spending pattern and wear your masks and sanitize. I understand that most people live under fear but what is the point of being alive if you are not living. COVID-19 is here for a whols

So, I‘ve been chatting with a girl for a few months since this whole COVID thing started. She’s really cool and we get along great. Last week we met up in person and ended up “having fun”. The only thing is she basically has no boobs. Just nipples on her chest. I couldn’t tell before because we had only vchatted, but now I don’t know if I can get over it. I like big boobs. Should I tough it out and try and get over it, or just move on to another girl?

Just read an article about how the first doses of the vaccine will be doled out. Am I the only one who is really heartened by the global response to COVID-19? Sure, the US and other countries led by conservative despots bungled it, but, on the whole humanity came together, wore masks, hunkered down, made a vaccine in record time. These actions were largely motivated by fear but also compassion for vulnerable people. I mean, we did it y’all!

A friend who travels for his job in industry started having symptoms 10 days ago while in Vancouver for work, flew home to California then spent last week in Orlando for work and came home, got tested and has COVID. 🤦 Be safe out there. If you're asked to travel make you exercise the "if you don't feel comfortable" part of the request if you need to.

My mom’s sister died due to Covid and my mom has been depressed since then. She started to see a grief counselor but now the counselor also has Covid. The doctors she had been seeing have Covid too.
