No, but I think some have no dealt with things so its hard for them to speak on it and tell someone else that what they know and think is not right even if it is to that person. I would hate to think now people are worried about mental illness, its been here all along. I am not sure if you can say on one hand, well covid did not affect me, so who cares and then say, well someone having a mental breakdown over a lock down affected me so that counts.All dramatically elevated during Covid lockdowns. But you're obviously OK with that, you support it.
My point is, consider all collateral damage and maybe be less dogmatic about masks and mandates, there is a price, and it's a very heavy price.
For example, I mentioned a family member that OD'd. Do you know why? Because she was booted from her rehabilitation facility due to Covid, and died at home about 5 minutes after her Zoom therapy meeting, face down on the keyboard. She was in the midst of OD'ing right through the ridiculous Zoom therapy session, and there wasn't a damn thing anyone could do about it. She needed help in a bad way, but the Covid lockdowns hit right when she had hit rock bottom and was committed...she spent about 4 days in rehab out of a 5 week program.
So yeah, I guess I can count 1 death due to Covid, and one death due to the lockdowns in my family.
Does that put me on some kind of holier than thou pedestal in the debate, because I can claim that mantle on both sides if I want to.
