    Well that was an interesting interview. It was good to see that perspective of someone so worried about covid and what they did to protect themselves. To me its way over the top but each to their own I think. You want to triple mask, no problem. You dont want to mask that is fine too. Some are worried and some are not. But was interesting to see the genuine relief that they got from the vaccine.

    The few places that I go(retired) I feel like I’m blabbering if I talk to people. I have lost my social skills, it’s unsettling.

    The show writers need a driving class. 10 and 2 with air bags could break your arms and cause severe burns.

    When I received my vaccinations, I was full of pride. Although I’m a retired RN, BSN, I took great pride in being associated with the medical & scientific communities, AND my City, my County, my State did a phenomenal job at making vaccinations a well-organized & easy to obtain event. I was in & out in ~1 hr, which included waiting in the parking lot for 15 min to make sure I had no reaction to the vaccinations. Bravo everyone, Bravo! I’m also at high risk, so my anxiety level has also been quite high since COVID19 started. During the interview, I couldn’t help wondering how Ms. Ellis Ross’ Mom, Diana Ross, was doing; she is just a little older than me. I hope she is well.

    Wow, Traci said it. The biggest takeaway from the last year is compassion for others & ourselves.

    That might be good practice in normal times for flying – pre-pandemic I almost never fly, but when I did I always got sick…

  • Kayla Blanton 3 years ago

    I have had anxiety with covid to the point where I began counseling, which has helped a lot. I lost my Papaw to covid in July 2020. You look at this virus with a different set of eyes when you have lost someone you love so much to something so horrible. I am only 31 but I do not want any part of covid, no-thank-you.

    If you double mask, don’t put the n95 (or kn95 in Traci’s picture) on the outside. That’s the one you want “sealed” against your skin as it is the more effective one. A cloth mask or surgical mask can go over it, which will catch larger particles and increase the longevity of the n95 mask.

    Tracee Ellis Ross is so radiant!
