My grandmother is saying she's still going to hold a Thanksgiving party and Christmas party, despite covid, because she "trusts her friends not to get her sick". -buries face in hands-

I like cats, but I'm allergic to them. My mother has a cat named Teddy.
I adore cats - love them to bits. But our cat is just horrible...she started out ok and then over the last couple of years she's become horrendous. Last pet for sure in this house.

I'm fine with the concept of victim-blaming when I'm myself well aware of what am I guilty of and what not. It gets hard to manage only when everyone else around me is trying to convince me "it wasn't your fault, you were in no position to act any way differently, she's the sick one here" and while I'm casually agreeing to that, I'm trying to shut up the inner voice reminding me that "they didn't see it, they weren't there, they have no idea about the situation... you haven't told them everything, hence the sick one is you and you know that".

My therapist was the first one ever to hear the details and ever since that I've been over-analyzing her behaviour. "She coughed, it must be a sign of that she despises me because she knows the truth." "She didn't explicitly say that my anger is justified, hence she must mean I'm a narcissistic psycho."

Also, the flashbacks are getting even more intensive and even more frequent.

SHE is more at risk than the young ones. Those who have strong immune systems, exercise, or drink vitamins survive the virus. In addition to the social distancing, masks, and washing hands/hand sanitizer combo. Just do at least one of those, or two, you increase your survival success.

Oh, and stop worrying. It's causing your overall health to affect your well-being. Here...

The year is 2020.

There are still people who believe that "RE7 is developed by only 120 people".

I wonder how many more of these guys I will meet next year.

About a dozen of my family members now have covid (including, potentially, someone who is extremely imune-compromised) because they insisted on having Thanksgiving dinner. -slow blinks- ...sure hope that food was worth it. :cautious:

I am sorry. That is just not right. They better not pull the "I/We didn't have a choice" bullshit.

Where do you even find these people?

Freaking asshole hackers. Enough I already! People are suffering enough; quit adding to the ****ing misery pile and joining in the assholes who want to got to hell brigade. You are the worst of humanity as far as I am concerned.

I just found one in this very board last month.

These people kept listening to random articles that says "RE7 is developed by a team of 120 staff" and the fanboys somehow interpret it as "only 120 staff", for some reason.
120 are the guys working from Capcom Japan.
The rest are staff from subsidiaries and a long list of outsourcing.

These people didn't practice any of the rules:

- Strong immune system [However, you're not invincible, so your immune system is as vulnerable to CoVID19 as the next virus.]
- Social Distancing
- Washing hands
- WEARING A MASK
- Drinking Vitamin [x]
- Hand sanitizer
- Exercising

Arrythmia, high blood pressure, shaking hands, difficulty to construct understandable sentences, forgetting words like "compare", "and" or "regulation", speaking Swedish during a German lecture and vice versa, dizziness, unability to sleep, unability to take care of going to sleep early enough, chest pain, not feeling hunger until it's starvation and still not paying attention to it, unabillity to remember why did I walk into the living room...

I was blind not to see it coming before all I could see around me is chores I've failed to complete.

The year is 2020.

And we're still using jugs that are designed specifically to have the lid come off and fall into your glass/cup when pouring your drink.

It's the Independence Day tomorrow, and for the first time ever, I can't find anything worth celebrating.

Need to make six frozen pizzas by tonight for family coming over tomorrow.

.... and the store I was leaning on to doesn't have any pizza bases.

Took a glance on the Next Gen EU fund and I just hope that I missed something because right now it seems like it's all about greenwashing...

More restrictions and lockdowns. More of "life sucks", because more of "life doesn't suck" is too to ask for nowadays. I am sorry for saying this. *Kicks door open and walks away*

There is something incredibly frustrating about seeking advice on a certain thing, and having someone latch onto something else entirely in your post (not here, another forum) and project their own morals and insecurities onto it.

Like ffs, stop making wild assumptions about my character, my husband's character, and our intentions.
