Guess it depends on whether you or your loved one is the one doing the dying. My aunt isn't expected to live the night. My very good friend survived, but may need a lung transplant in the future. Not only are we all sick of hearing about it, but I think a lot of us are sick of living it too. I needed to get my semi-annual test for a cancer blood antigen and couldn't get it for three months either.

COVID is overhyped.

It depends more on how they've overhyped COVID.
So much FUD and so little actual honest information.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FUD
It would be less annoying and obnoxious if they'd just be honest about it instead of making out like it was going to kill off 100% of the population.
You're better off taking zinc and Vitamin D3, which you should probably be taking anyway to ward off other disease and deficiencies. But no they don't tell you that, they'd rather make out like everyone is doomed so they can control you with their FUD.

Just to be clear, I was responding to family's question, which related to sports and how much the team owners would stand to lose if the season was cancelled. To me there is no choice in this situation. People's lives are more important to me than whether a fabulously wealthy person loses money.


There's someone in my head, but it's not me.

Yah, yah. It's all over the news. The same worthless "information" and FUD.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FUD
Do you think I have to hear it 60 times? It's been many years since I was a 2-year-old and I don't appreciate the news media's attempts to manipulate people.

Most of the people upset about football are the fans, not the team owners, and it's not the "fabulously wealthy" people who are in danger of starving to death because their jobs have been taken away.

I hope your aunt feels better, Drac.

At least she's past all the nonsense now.

Thank you, family.

Thank you, Winfrey. My Aunt Betty was so looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas. She had the best holiday dinners with the entire family.

I am in total agreement with you Jenny100, I've reached the saturation point, I've had enough of it. You can't turn the tv on without being bombarded with it. I too need test done but can't get them.

It's worse for the people left behind than for those who've moved on.

Thank you connie, judith, hagatha and l4l. I'm sure we're all pretty sick of hearing about and watching people die and living this whole thing.

I've buried two husbands and I know what it's like for those left behind only too well. But I happen to know that my Aunt Betty would thoroughly disagree with you, Jenny. She didn't want to die and was terrified and furious.

Drac, I am so very sorry for your loss. My heart is heavy for you and the whole family.

I just popped in and see many messages, on both sides of the fence in understanding what is happening in this world right now with the Covid and election going on. The continuous changes in our lives and the bombardment of media thrown at us is creating a bigger divide by the day. There are silent members who also are not posting for fear of disagreeing with the need to wear masks etc and in my personal opinion the topic as it stands right now has reached its limit.

I feel we all can agree that this year has been a challenge and we all deal with it differently, but we all wish each other well.
Some of the chit chat in here such as the whales have been really delightful to read and we do have a chat thread that is opened weekly by Joe aka gymcandy for near 15 years now that would welcome such chat. Please feel free to contribute and say hi there.

Please do what you feel is best to be healthy, happy and respectful of others in your orbit. Let's send something positive out in the universe for peace and good health for all.

Ana
