I feel terrible right now, my mom invited me over for dinner tonight but I declined because at least one of my coworkers is positive for the covid and at least 2 more are potentially positive (They were out sick last week but I don't know what they have).

I'm going to try to get tested this week. I hear Walgreens has free testing.

To clarify - you feel terrible for declining the invitation or you feel terrible as in you don't feel well?

Declining the inventation.

Physically I have a slight headache. Also some dizziness (but that's from watching the Browns game).

ETA: I just have visions of my visit spreading the covid to her and she dies from it. I'm not sure I could live with that.

You're doing the right thing though. It's great your thinking with your head and not your heart even though it hurts.

My sister was tested free at Walgreens a few weeks ago. Took 3 days to get results.

Man between Covid surging the election stress and worry about Trump winning my wife and I are off the rails stressed. On top of it she is a elementary school teacher and got called back to in person teaching late September and despite numerous outbreaks at her school and a few teachers getting the virus the district is keeping in person learning going ugh. Trying to maintain my sanity is tough and try not to think about if Trump wins.

Trump isn’t going to win. But it is scary.

Be prepared to be wrong. They have the deck stacked to fight ANY results that go against them in every state. They're going to drag the findings out for months if they need to to find a way to keep the white house.

I truly hope its a blue landslide so they can go fuck themselves, but I've never been that lucky in life.

I'm starting to feel like I need to just unplug from the news for a while.

I finally had enough of the continuous undermining of our Presidential Election and the larger worry that irreparable harm is being done with very little thought or care about the longer-term impact. So for the first time ever, I wrote both my Senators (Sens Rubio & Scott from Florida) to express that concern and asked how much longer they were each willing to allow this to continue. It was written in a very courteous fashion with genuine concern and no name-calling. After pressing the button, I felt both immediately satisfied for speaking up as a concerned citizen, and horrified that somehow, someway I will regret having "spoken up and sent it".

Don't let it get to you. Skipping the news for just a day can do wonders already.

I unplugged from news, Twitter, and this board for a few months. I still haven't gone back to Twitter. I had to for my mental wellbeing. With COVID-19, BLM protests, and all of the political BS, there was too much going on and other parts of my life were suffering.

Take some time and unplug. It can do a world of good.
