I decided awhile ago to stop judging others, but at the same time to be confident in the decisions I’m making. It’s hard to know what’s best. But only YOU know what’s right for you. Ignore them, even family, and be confident in your own decisions.

It’s so hard to even stay confident. They constantly tell me I’m crazy for being careful even when I’m not even talking about COVID or anything remotely close to it.

Stop talking to them or change the subject if they're going to disrespect you. Let them know that you will speak to them again when they will respect that you don't want to talk about COVID. Or make them feel shitty and selfish but I get the impression you're not very confrontational. My COVID conspiracy family members recoil real quick when I go off on them with facts, selflessness, how all lives matter until you have to wear a mask, I have a whole angry rant ready to go and it makes ppl mind their own business real quick.

I mean... they might be legitimately concerned for your mental health. I certainly would be if someone told me they haven’t left the house in 8 months other than to go to tj maxx and considered that a “weakness.” I know you might want us to be proud of you, but if I were related to you, I’d just be worried about you being depressed or descending into substance abuse by yourself. Which hopefully you’re not

Nope, I don’t drink or feel the need to. I honestly feel like I’ve grown a lot during the pandemic and have been able to get control of a lot of the areas in my life I was suffering with before - eating healthier, exercising daily, etc.

What is the best objective source for determining whether to get the COVID 19 vaccine? Looking for sources and raw data and documentaries. I’m not looking for opinions I am looking for references to a variety of medical authorities. I have masked up this whole time but admittedly have not done any research other than what I heard in the news. So now I plan to approach this as an objective question to answer like I would any thoroughly researched legal question.
