I've never blocked or unfriended anyone on Facebook. I've rolled my eyes and ignored, but I just don't have the time of day to engage in discussions with "friends" who really aren't.
But today, I responded to an ugly post.
I am "friends" with S. because we each had a parent with Alzheimer's. That's what we have in common. When I saw her angry post railing against Dr. Fauci, I fumed.
"We have become like cattle being led to the slaughter.. I am fed up with posts about the evil media, pushing Corona Fear. We need to be working together!"
She added one more thing:
S. replied with a message that went on for days. I only shared the last paragraph. I'm done. No need to waste my energy communicating here.
Thankfully I have many friends posting things on Facebook that bring me a little joy, a little good humor and some helpful information, as well. I know how to keep myself well, during these shaky times. I know who lifts me up and who drags me down.
I'm so glad I don't have to shelter in place with someone who isn't taking this seriously.
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
