I suppose I'm the unpopular one of the bunch as I believe the virus is real and should be taken seriously. And after smoking for 25 years I just up and quit. I tested negative for COVID but I'm pretty sure I had it as I had all of the textbook symptoms including rash, pinkeye and the weird toe thing. I'm still not quite right. As someone who used to be athletic, I can feel that my body is having some pulmonary issues. It could just be from the quitting smoking? I'm seeing my Doc next week about it for some tests.Note: This post was recovered from the Sh.org archive.Username: igneousDate: 2020-08-20 11:14:20Reaction Score: 1
Having watched my mom die slowly while intubated but yet conscious, I have no desire to invite the same sort of end. I wear a mask. The time for masks might have come and gone, but as a slightly neurotic person, I don't feel as though there is enough data yet (for me) to really suss this thing out. However, I don't freak out on other people or judge other people if they don't wear a mask - in my opinion they should but that's just an opinion. Maybe they have the right idea and I don't. Maybe there is no right or wrong idea, who the heck knows. I say live and let live. I don't however, take kindly to people telling me I am unpatriotic if I wear a mask. That's just goddamn ridiculous. Conflating all kinds of things into a big ignorant pie.
But I agree with everyone here and think all the governments threw their hands in the air and yelled "yippee" at the thought of all the things they can do to society. Our rights here in America are being obliterated and people are getting fecking rich on death. It's so disgusting and disheartening. I don't really see any end to it and agree, like everyone else, that it will probably get worse before it gets better.
This is totally a reset moment for history.
