Covid family vent

I learned that one of my siblings and their whole family had covid. They are very much against vaccination and will not wear masks unless forced to.

One of the family members told me, while I had a mask on, in a rude snarky way that they chose not to tell ANYONE because of those, pointing to my mask.

At least ten of them were sick and did not tell anybody. They kept it a secret and did not inform people they had been around.

They went out and got their own groceries, going inside the store. They thought it was okay as long as the sick person was home. The family members that were exposed but not yet sick were still going out and to work with no masks on.

I cannot believe the selfishness and arrogance. They are also deeply religious. Their actions show that they only care about themselves.

One of the family members apologized for speaking rudely to me and admitted that maybe they made a mistake not telling anyone so there is that. The rest of the bunch, not one word.

I am so disappointed and angry at their behavior and hurt that my sibling was very sick and didn't want me to know. I would have gladly dropped off food.

I am vaccinated and still wear a mask when I go out. I do it not just for myself. I do it because I know there are others with weakened immune systems that can't handle getting sick. Same thing with the flu shot. It's not just for ME.

I can't take the selfishness and I can't stand the hypocrisy.

Thanks for letting me get that out!!!!!

Im sorry they were rude to you. It is so sad that it seems more and more people prove how arrogant and selfish they are every day.

I see the selfishness every time i go out to get groceries. Its hard to keep my mouth shut at times.

An old friend called me today, and vaccines came up. She works in hospitality and talked about a group that came in and asked if she knew she/they were living in "God's Country" then asked if she was vaxxed and she said she didn't feel comfortable talking about her personal life, and it became a small thing (thankfully not a big thing).

Then she told me of a NURSE who told her that the vaccine was going to kill us all, and advised to NEVER get any kind of vaccination, including the flu, shingles, etc.

She then asked me: If I had a good friend that wasn't vaxxed come to town and wanted to meet, would I?
"H*ll to the NO I said".

That sucks Zebra. That kind of selfishness is not the kind of religion I was raised on.

Thanks you prickle and gmc.

I knew we didn't agree about this but chose not to discuss it because there is no point. They quote information or I should say misinformation from questionable sources and can't have a calm discussion. I have barely seen them since the start of covid. I never expected to be attacked for choosing to wear a mask.

I am also so upset with all of them for going out in public when they knew they were exposed. I'm sure they are not the only ones that have done this.

It's hard to believe a nurse would advise against getting vaccinated. When our hospital required it there were a few that allied for exemptions.

Thank you to everybody that does your part to keep yourself and others safe.

It's hard to believe a nurse would advise against getting vaccinated.

This really has confused me. Not just the pushback from medical folks but the general belief floating around that vaccines are just being used as a control serum and a violation of rights.

Mandatory vaccines/immunizations have been around long before I was born.

In a society the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few IMO. Just because a specific group of people are less likely to get sick doesn't mean that those who will get sick are less than and dont deserve to be protected. Nor should we ALL suffer with a medical system struggling to serve everyone but overwhelmed by the sick when those cases could have been avoided.

The arrogance of people is an oozing infection thats going to destroy us as a species.

Ignorance abounds. I got into a verbal exchange at the grocery store after two idiots took issue with me wearing a mask. I gave them a strong piece of my mind. On the advice of my lung surgeon, I never leave home without a mask.

My sister said she was glad to hear I am getting back to my old self, having fights in grocery stores. smile

Always remember one of my favorite quotes: "To remain silent is to assume you agree."

"Because I deserve better"

Jeannie, I have a hard time understanding why anyone would take issue with you or anyone wearing a mask. It makes no sense.

An added benefit to mask wearing is it cuts down on picking up other illnesses passed around this time of year.
