  1. I am beyond baffled at the way some of these things have turned. Contact tracing. I have encountered so many people who didn't know that contact tracing was already a thing that health departments did. One of the kids we adopted came home with Giardia and we had to help the health department figure out where he may have gotten it. An immigrant situation wasn't the norm for the area so they ended up filing it as he had been drinking unfiltered water. (In Ukraine.) But now people think it is a brand new thing designed to steal your rights. It has always been there. Most people have just not enco
  2. They should talk to the people I have heard telling stories about "the elites" engineering this to reduce the planet's overpopulation and save the environment.

  4. "An aging workforce A July 2019 article in the New England School of Medicine showed that from 2000 to 2017, the number of physicians younger than 50 years old living in rural areas decreased by 25%, and by 2017, more than half of rural physicians were at least 50 years old. More than a quarter were at least 60. By comparison, in urban areas only 39% of physicians were older than 50, and only 18% were older than 60." https://www.valdostadailytimes.com/news/local_news/aging-country-doctors-as-rural-physicians-age-out-health-care/article_ef4f188b-e1ba-5f5d-b4df-4bbd7a8519f2.html
  5. It works fine, but it is a bit expensive. We make our own with koolaid packets, sugar, salt, and fake salt.
  6. We are following all of our high maintenance levels for respiratory care here. Obviously that would depend on someone's individual needs. For us it is BiPap/CPap to help keep lungs open, oxygen as needed, suction, regular chest percussion, etc. We are trying to keep everyone's lungs as healthy as possible, and hoping it helps.
  7. Yeah, I have also been shocked by the response we have gotten for living in a black neighborhood. My mother's current husband is obviously off the deep end. He started making comments that were "jokes" when we called him out, but then moved on to blatantly packing his gun on the few occasions he came here. We don't invite him here anymore. He is either rubbing off on my mom, or she is more comfortable expressing nastiness she used to keep to herself? She started making comments also when she visited but stopped when I called her out. She never commented on race in my boyfriends, but had p
  8. I was just talking to my BFF from NZ about this. She had originally been hoping they would have less contact than most countries because they aren't a travel hub like Europe, but I guess that's not the case. The domestic flights this person took a week after getting back are going to risk a lot more spread.
  9. Is it better or worse that these mistakes are based out of utter ignorance, and not only an attempt to manipulate what kids learn? This wasn't crafting a narrative intentionally. This was a complete lack of basic background knowledge.
  10. @Lang Syne Boardie I am under 40, educated in the US, and very concerned about what I have been reading.
  11. We use sugar to make homemade Gatorade when we are sick, but we use even less than you would use to make regular koolaid. 250 lbs of sugar would last us a long time. I know people who buy a lot for hummingbirds but that probably isn't what is going on LOL! I was in the same doctor office today as last week, same time of day, same people working. The phlebotomist who was coughing last week was wearing a mask today. I saw lots more sick people in the waiting room today. From my time waiting it sounds like a lot of people are wanting to get seen for symptoms they would usually completely ign
  12. I've seen a few posts in Facebook groups from families deciding to withdraw from their local schools and homeschool in response to this. That surprised me.
  13. Here is part of the problem. There are a few different photos of people helping transport patients that come up with that article. Some of those people are only wearing regular loop masks. We know what is going on and we are still putting people at risk.
  14. Thank you! Just our backyard, but our house is practically a zoo!
