DAMN IT!! I just received a text that one more of our family succumbed to COVID.

43 years old. Good, decent man who volunteered at nursing homes on week-ends before COV:ID hit in January. He suffered for 2 1/2 months before going into cardiac arrest late last night. I am so broken. He went almost exactly as my husband did. May the Trumpers all rot in hell!

May the good memories help you through your grief.

Sorry to say, the Trumps don't even realize this is going on. No shame. I join you in your anger, as I've also lost several people to this horrid virus.

I am so sorry for your loss!

My wish for the anti-maskers who showed up with guns and bullhorns in Idaho to shut down a community meeting over a possible mask mandate is that they be sentenced to community service as hospital volunteers to assist with and help comfort the worst-case victims of Covid like your family member and your husband in their final hours before they tragically passed away. Maybe then they would believe that Covid is not a hoax, that this is deadly serious, and that they should, dammit, wear a mask!

I try to not stay angry at whatever continuing or new nastiness drumph & Co, and maskless peoole do - out of staying healthier. Usually successful.

And fury and rage are absolutely appropriate for what they have been doing to the rest of us.

Again my condolences.

They are the ones who created this mess and instead of making it better
they only continued to make it worse. If there was any such thing as true
justice they would be the first ones to suffer from it.

I don't know about that statistic, but for those for whom it's fatal, it's a horrible passing. No one should be downplaying it. Then there are the long haulers who will live, but with diminished health. I hope we go after Trump for depraved indifference homicides for all the damage he's done. Your relative sounds like a good person. He'll be missed.

I just found out that one of my best friends, who is also a neighbor, lost her mother to COVID a few weeks ago. And she can't even visit her family b/c they live in Germany. It happened a few weeks ago, but my friend just doesn't want to talk to anyone. So she hasn't been answering or returning my calls until today. I'm really worried about her.

Hell is too good for trumpers. There needs to be something even worse.

I’m so sorry. At a time when we’d all ordinarily be looking forward to Christmas, you and too many others have had to deal with this instead.

I’m so sorry.

I wonder how many will be in mourning this Christmas. Heartbreaking.

I’m so sorry.

You know everyone here has your back - you even alluded to it in your follow-up post. Just as a personal comment, because everyone deals with things differently, I'd try to hang on to that final sentence in your OP. Anger will get you past your grief a lot faster than will more grief.

And, although you and I have no tangible connection that I know of, I will be here (there?) for you and every DUer that needs some bolstering. In what small way I'm able, I want to help.

If they only killed other anti-maskers, no problem, karma etc. But they don't. Because of one of these fuckheads, our son who lives with us now has Covid and my husband and I have headaches and coughs as of today. Son is 35 and seems to be getting better, no fever or headaches today, so hopefully this isn't just one of the swings. Now we will all be trollying down to the testing station soon, praying we don't have it or are over it.

Son works at a fast food place where they are totally lax on masks and one of the people refused to wear one and was working with him and now he's got it and other people there are coming down with it too. He wears a mask at work, but it slips because it's so hot in the kitchen. I am scared, both my husband and I are pre-diabetics and bad lungs run on both sides of my family.

Also, what's going to happen after 12/31, money to the states for testing ends on that date. There are no other places here that provide free testing. Doctors offices won't test and son has no insurance so even if they did, he couldn't afford it.

I hate people killing Repugs who have refused to provide money to states for this testing because they want corporations to be able to kill the working class without penalty and that's all they care about.
