Everyone wants a quick fix for everything. Things take time and work. It took over a year to get here so it’ll take a year to get back or more. I used to tell my soldiers the same thing on relationships post deployment. You rush it and it’ll break
For me, nothing changed from this pandemic as I was very busy taken care of Dh all during 2020 and the first month and a half of this year. I did run to a store closest to me and took Dh to doctor appts as well as being in and out of hospital with him. Only difference for me was having to wear a mask that really didn’t protect anyone. But I wore it in order to get in doctors offices and store. We made out fine with the shut downs for the most part. The only thing that effected us was that DH did not get the medical care he would have gotten otherwise. Seemed they only wanted to take care of corvid patients in order to get that all mighty 35% increase from the insurance companies and government payouts. Yes that all happened. The Flu never went away as fake news said. People that passed from flu, yes it was blamed on corvid. Follow the money.
