I understand totally. We have all become acustomed to all these viruses circulating and to be entirely honest, most of my fears subsided because I am numb to it now like most of us. I was thinking more logically rather than out of fear. I have athsma and and cought the virus twice and was asymptomatic both times. My husband on the other hand was very sick. My heart pouded the first time my husband contracted the virus because he has a heart condition and was very sick and it caused anerexia. He lost weight and barely survived it. I nursed him back to health. I have an Aunt and Uncle who passed away after contracting the Delta varient and they were good people that didn't deserve to die. Out of thinking logically I never left anyone in my house since the pandemic started. It is no longer safe to mingle. I am a safety guru. I more less take the safest route. That doesnt mean we dont visit grocery stores or remain hermits as my husband and I still go places when the weather warms up and keep our distance from others as much as possible.Meh. I'm not worried about all the 'demics. I've had Covid twice and have had some wicked bouts of the flu over my lifetime.
Once I stepped away from network news and started looking at things from more of a macro view, I discovered that most of the hysteria was put out there to keep people scared and worried. Does Covid suck? Most definitely, and it can be deadly for some with certain conditions and if it is untreated. Saying that, I have asthma, am obese, and am a diabetic... and survived it twice; your mileage may vary. I don't go around licking doorknobs and stuff, but I also don't wear a face mask unless it is required (thankfully I live in the South and in a red state).
I know we are all fed up with this but now a new varient is present and contains parcial characteristics of the Delta varient and is a subvarient of Omicron. I think medical scientist are obsessed with omicron.
