Just to clarify a few things, I do not feel picked on at all and I have been very upset by several people who bitched about wearing a mask last year or worse went without masking or distancing as an act of overconfidence or civil disobedience.
I’ve gone through a lot to stay alive since cancer and if a vaccine becomes available that does not contain PEG or Polysorbate 80, I would absolutely consider it but for now I will minimize the risk to myself and others the best way I can.
Yes, I am incredibly lucky to have not lost anyone to covid and for those that have, I am sorry and I totally get when the passion or anger comes from. With regard to pre existing conditions, I intended no blame at all, I just wonder about the data being reported and the difference between dying with covid vs from covid.
Finally, the mountain is real and I can’t wait, 2020 for me was recovering from brain surgery, 8 months of starvation due to partial vocal cord paralysis (from the brain surgery) and some cancer progression, covid was the turd on top, I am due for a break and this is it.
