    I'm thinking along the lines of this will get worse, before it gets better. One step forward, and two back.

    Hugs to anyone who is currently not doing well!

    I'm avoiding the media in general as well, only hearing the utmost necessary. Hearing what others are going through is beyond heartbreaking. I'm trying my best to keep going and moving forward.

    define worse than this and there goes anxiety out like bolt.
    have a feeling that many of us might have had mild symptoms and recovered during this lockdown like how the scientific researsh says people with blood group A are more susceptible to this and O positive people have more survival chances.
    Many theories exists but we still dont know even if vaccines are out how long it can protect us. The shots have a small window to test not sure how reliable they are either...more scary if it causes harm to us.

    Oh I read that article also.

    Half my family are type As!

    I don't watch the media much anymore either. There's so much inflection and tone and it drones on and on for something that can be said in two sentences.

    Mostly do a lot of reading and news articles.

    Yes, Spawn. Many people have had a mild variety of the disease and effectively didn't know they had it at the time. Even mild is quite unpleasant and a feature seems to be that those who got the mild version reported experiencing in particular ongoing fatigue or extreme tiredness for months after.

    Our health department here stated that 90% of fatalities already had an underlying health condition.

    I had seen that piece about the blood type. (I am an 0 Positive). I suppose the research needs to be fully proven.

    They found that individuals with blood types in the A group (A-positive, A-negative and AB-positive, AB-negative) were at a higher risk of contracting the disease compared with non-A-group types. People with O blood types (O-negative and O-positive) had a lower risk of getting the infection compared with non-O blood types, the scientists wrote in the preprint database medRxiv on March 27; the study has yet to be reviewed by peers in the field.

    Several early studies have suggested a link between obesity and more severe COVID-19 disease in people. One study, which analyzed a group of COVID-19 patients who were younger than the age of 60 in New York City, found that those who were obese were twice as likely as non-obese individuals to be hospitalized and were 1.8 times as likely to be admitted into critical care.


    Anyhow, anxiety, fear and panic must be avoided at all costs. Precautions yes, panic no. Anxiety and stress will shoot up your BP, make you feel dreadful and has a paralysing effect.

    Better times ahead everbody!!

    Yes, especially here in the U.S. There's a lot of non-compliance with masks and social distancing. I see it all around me.

    Well, not wearing a mask is viewed by some as patriotic and standing up for your personal freedom. Not wearing one is being encouraged at the highest level.

    I'll just keep staying away from people as much as possible. I can be lonely for as long as it takes. And when a vaccine or cure is found I hope to be here, ready to enjoy a full life again.

    Get out those big ol' sunglasses! 😎🥽😷👓

    "Wearing goggles, face shields or another covering over the eyes also could help protect you from getting COVID-19, although it’s not a surefire guarantee, according to a study published Monday in The Lancet medical journal.

    “Eye protection is often under-considered and not uniformly included in policies,” Dr. Derek Chu, a study co-author, told ABC News. “Goggles, face shields or even large eye glasses may be important in preventing droplet spread through the eyes as well as self inoculation via the hands.”

    This is getting ridiculous. I've resigned myself to getting Covid. Man at the laundromat has a vicious cough but the owners have him there wiping down tables.

    I have a defeatist attitude. I'm just going to get it and there's nothing I can do about it.
