I’ve been fully vaccinated since early this year (Pfizer), and tested positive for Covid-19 three days ago. I’m laid up in bed feeling terrible and quarantined so that my wife (who tested negative) and two kids don’t catch it from me. Remember: be safe. Don’t relax yet. The vaccines are wonderful, but we can still get it and pass it on.

Consulting Moms -
How are you doing it?!
I’m so frustrated trying trying to lose 20lbs I gained since my 2nd (now 2.5 yo) stopped nursing/Covid started/I started a new career in consulting. Before these major life changes, I was an Army officer and very active. Sitting at a desk all day now and balancing mommy-hood/dealing with stress of a career pivot has made prioritizing health such a struggle.
Any advice is helpful.

Hi I am an asian american myself. I want to let everyone here know that despite the recent anti-asian incidents that have been circulating around social media and this bowl. I know that the irresponsible actions of a few individuals does not speak for everyone. I don’t think it’s fair for us to misrepresent people of color (we are in this group too) base on a few reckless individuals from those videos. We are all humans and our generations both faced discrimination in varying forms and severity.

When did vaccines and mandating them become so divisive and political? Most colleges (and some jobs) have always required proof of vaccination for MMR, HPV, etc well before Covid. Now everyone seems to be all up in arms for Covid vaccine and work mandating them. The science to make a vaccines isn’t new (which explains the speed) nor is the mandates to get vaccines. The vaccine is also clearly effective so this “debate” seems silly at this point
