I was pretty freaked out in the beginning of the pan plan demic. I even wore gloves if I went shopping and made sure to wipe everything down. The C could be anywhere , so you couldn't be too careful. I still lived my life, but all the fun things were taken out of it. Anything social was canceled in NJ and there was a mask mandate for everywhere you went. Smaller restaurants I would have lunch at closed down. I was really sad for all of it and it depressed me.

Today, I've just been living life the way I did before C and question a whole lot more about what we all went through with C and why. I'm going to have Thanksgiving at my house. A smaller party, but still my first family party since C.

@jofrance No such problem in our family, but the vaccinated do shed a lot of virus for about 2 weeks after the jab, which is the only real problem....

I just learned that I have been uninvited from a Thanksgiving dinner that I have attended for nine years Only the unvaccinated are welcome. I had a feeling this was coming and I was correct but I am still shocked.

@nona How strange. This is the first time I’ve heard of discrimination against a vaccinated person. I’ve only seen it the other way around. It’s not cool either way.

I heard that 50% of American families are dealing with this new boundary. How sad.

@nona That’s crazy! I’m vaxxed but have been around unvaxxed numerous times indoors and been okay. Last Thanksgiving I went to family gatherings in two homes, no masks and no vax available at the time. Don’t remember any one of us getting sick. (Most of them likely had CV at some point that year already, so they had antibodies.)

@nona it's an issue with my husband's family as well.

I live in a beautiful visitor destination area.  I have lived and worked on this beach for years.  That is until the early part of 2020.  The never ending stream of tourists have used up their ration of my patience.  Until then I welcomed each and every one of them  --  I just always reminded myself that because of them, and the massive amount of money they pumped into our economy, we do not have a state income tax.  Not only has this virus brought out the worse behavior in so many people, they have to make everybody else around them miserable.  They throw trash all over our beaches.  They torture and taunt our marine life.  They make the clerks at Publix cry.  They dart out in the streets against signals and then flip you off.  They scream and swear when they are not able to purchase liquor at 6 AM or after midnight.  They throw hot coffee and cheeseburgers at the counter help in McDonalds.  They walk into stores and yes, even restaurants without shirts and filthy dirty bare feet.  They start fist fights at the hotel bars and then run out on their bar tabs.  And that is not even the half of it.  In all the years I have been here, spring - summer of 2021 has been the worst.  I no longer welcome these ill mannered, and many times just outright ignorant tourists.  At this point, I would take paying a state income tax and just telling these people to go away.  It has been months and months since I have just been able to walk down to the beach and enjoy peace and calm.  Right now, I am just no longer thrilled with where I live.  In some ways, I feel like my home has been taken away from me.

((((sun-mar)))) Wow, this is really sad. Last year I thought (naively) that my fellow Americans would come together like we did after 9/11. The exact opposite appears to be happening, and it is disheartening. Collectively, I am seeing the dark side of Aquarius and Sagittarius energy play out and I am so over it.

My life became Covid-proof in 2017-2018 when Pluto crossed my Dsc, so the impact of the lockdown was softened by that.

Something about the rest of the world slowing down and disengaging from the normal routines, was comforting for me. Obviously I'm not glad that people had to suffer in isolation and without necessary supplies, but for me personally, I felt like I was able to catch my breath. Settle in. Come to terms with reality.

However, I really shouldn't speak too soon. Covid is now rampant in my little town. Has penetrated my inner circle. Beds are completely full at my local hospital, for the first time since the pandemic started.

That's how I felt in the spring of 2020. While life got more stressful in some ways, in others it became more idyllic. The air outside was fresher, and I connected with nature. Sometimes I really miss that feeling of life on hold, because life has gotten hectic lately, and I'm feeling the pressure of others' expectations again.
