What are you doing and what are you avoiding in Rona Times? It's fascinating to me how many permutations exist in how we choose to navigate this challenging era.
I got vaxxed and boosted ASAP, as did my bf. Before vaccines, we each visited family once. We only socialized with our local friends outdoors and distanced. After, we have one friend who comes inside. He's boosted, WFH, and always KN95 masks in public, same as us. None of us do indoor dining.
BUT. I was WFH the first 11 weeks of lockdown, through May 2020. I begged my boss to be allowed back at work. I have an office far from others, in a lab with excellent filtration, and we had a strict mask requirement (we are now required to be vaxxed).
WFH was terrible for me mentally. I felt like I was going insane. I dropped around 20-25 pounds in 3 months and was teary and desperate (normally I'm very laid back and laugh a lot). So I had to weigh the risk of covid against the very real and clear risk to my mental health.
I know everyone wouldn't make these choices. My bf and I still mask always. These are trying times but WE CAN DO THIS.
And thank you guys for being such an excellent and interesting community, and a source of joy for my extroverted self. 😘
