#SoCS Feb. 20, 2021 – Nerve

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “nerve.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

It really gets on my nerves, you know, how some people are still spouting about COVID-19 and all it’s global implications being a hoax, or a conspiracy theory. Or, that they have lockdown fatigue, and genuinely don’t care anymore, so are beginning to flout rules.

You guys. You are the ones who might end up pushing us back into more lockdowns, if you can’t understand how this thing works. Yes, it’s a virus, and there are plenty out there, but, like various illnesses, they vary in severity, and this one, well, we all know how awful it is.

Just look at the death rates, and way hopsital ICUs are packed. Or take a look at the long term side effects that some people are suffering from: Long Covid. Previously healthy folk, reduced to shells of themselves.

At least we have this vaccine. It might help a little. We may need one annually, but hey, if it gets us out of this mess, I’m game.

Shame not everyone is.

Jsut last night, Lil Man and I were out for a walk and as we walked through town, a woman passed a man she knew. She called out “You getting your vaccination, then?”

His response? “The f*** I am!” He gave her the middle finger salute and waltzed off.

I actually write a huge amount more, but had to delete it because I was getting too het up.

Seriously, my nerves are frayed, now!

(I’m glad I wrote this last night, because I wouldn’t want to spend Saturday wound up, since it’s Lil Princess’s birthday, today!)

    Well said, Sis! Some people never will learn, but the trust in the whole communities not to be harmed by their own sillyness. Michael

    Good for you, Ritu. As the saying goes, “Don’t let the bastards get you down.” Which you never do anyway. And Happy Birthday Lil Princess.

    We have to maintain our staying safe and be fully aware that there will be a difference of opinion and ignorance out there.

    I understand these frayed nerves. My daughter’s got PT twice a week and that’s too much exposure for my comfort but it has to be done. Went through the Cruz Thru for a slushy on the way home & the boy helping us wasn’t masked up. Honestly, it makes me want to scream.

    We don’t have any vaccines here, Ritu, so it is not an option. If it was here, then we would have it. I want my life back, or at least a part of it. I am sick of this stay at home life.

    Happy birthday to your daughter! I’m with you 110%. We’re definitely still in this. Not a hoax but a tragedy.

    I totally agree with everything you say here Ritu. I got covid last April and it was the most horrendous sickness I’ve ever experienced. I really thought I was going to die at one point. I was more or less unwell for the rest of the year. It’s only in the last month or so that I can say that I’m back to normal. I have energy again and I can go for walks without getting chest pains and breathing difficulties.
    Yes, everything you said gets on my nerves too.
    Have a lovely day with the birthday girl, Lil Princess!!

      Oh, Gloria!
      I’m glad you’re on the mend, my lovely.
      I’m convinced I’ve had it asymptomatically, to be honest. Being out there and in school, it’s likely. But what makes me wonder, more , is how breathless I am, generally, right now, that I wasn’t, before…

      And thank you xxx
