I have quite a few HOH residents.
I keep a little white board w/ erasable marker on my med cart to write them notes if they can't hear what I'm saying (yelling) lol

Yes, I, too, have remarked to friends that the masks, quarantine and social distancing have kept us free from the usual colds, flu and stomach bugs for the past almost-year. A little silver lining.

Sass, that is an awesome graphic - thanks!

Congrats, SS! Massachusetts is not doing well with the vaccine roll-out, so I'm not even close to getting an appointment. More concerned for my 90-year-old father who has "signed up to get an appointment" at his senior housing on the Cape. He insists on waiting for them to come to him.

Don't have any fear.
There are a lot of negative stories going on in the media.
I've gotten it twice, no biggie.
Just a sore arm.
Florida is vaccinating anyone over 65, so quite a few of my family and friends have gotten at least a single dose already. For weeks, i have gotten on every county waiting list I can, using family members zip codes. Every Wednesday and Friday morning I've had 6 browser windows open trying for 2 hours to get into the queue at Publix pharmacy. I have been doing everything I can to get an appointment.

I know several people who have been seriously ill, and 2 who have died. At 67, I'm one of the youngest of my group of friends, and we have all of the health issues that go along with age. Text messages with family and friends are not enough. We moved into a new house last fall and no one has been able to visit. Sometimes we feel so isolated we just want to cry. Several of my friends are single/widdowed/divorced and feel so alone. The depression can be debilitating.

I am much more in fear of covid than any shot. Thank you for your encouraging words. But I am not afraid of the shot. I am afraid of living like this much longer.

Kathy, I am so sorry that you are so fearful and sad, my dear! It sounds as if you are taking the appropriate precautions, and that you will be fine once you receive your vaccinations.

In the meantime, PM me if you want to vent. I'll send you my phone number.

They need to figure out something to make this process easier. I'm glad you were finally successful.

I got my first shot yesterday morning at 0800. Around 1100 I started feeling like I was coming down with a bad cold or flu. I took a nap for an hour or more then felt sluggish for several hours before feeling right again. Mine was Pfizer.

Cooksie, what do you think about this?


Texas Gov. Greg Abbott will lift the state's mask mandate and announced businesses would be allowed to reopen at full capacity in one week's time.

"It is now time to open Texas 100 percent," Abbott said Tuesday afternoon.
