    In the last four weeks over 10,000 Americans died from Covid. It’s the number three killer in the U.S., behind only cancer and heart disease.Report

    Holding two uncomfortable truths simultaneously:

    1. A lot of us are so exhausted by working two people’s (or more!) jobs at the same time that a lot of us HAVE thought “it would be nice to be sick, just not very sick, and be ‘allowed’ to stay home for a few days and watch old movies and have someone cater to us’ (I have no one to cater to me though, so I try to avoid getting even minorly sick)

    2. For people who lost loved ones to COVID this is a pretty uncomfortable sketch. Also uncomfortable to people with chronic illness who have been mocked in the past for having to take days off to recuperate after doing something out of the ordinary.

    I dunno. It hits uncomfortably but there’s a nugget of truth in it that we’re all kind of……we just want to have some time to relax.Report
