15. Yep.

Type 1 diabetic here. I'm a 68-year-old woman and have had Type 1 for 50 years.

I've utterly given up the hope that other people will wise up and follow the science. It's every wo(man) for themselves now.

So I wear my N95 EnvoMask everywhere I go, all the time. (Love these masks, BTW -- they have a gel cushion around the mask edge that gives it a great mask seal. The N95 filter is replaceable.) Amazingly, I have gotten not a single comment.

High-quality masks solve so many problems: Public has given up on masking? Stealthy new variant discovered? Well, I was wearing my mask, so I have a much reduced need to worry.

I have started going to patio happy hours every couple weeks here in Phoenix (lucky us). BUT I'm there for the friends ... not the food or drink. I keep my social distance and, most importantly, keep my mask firmly in place during the entire event, not lifting or removing it to eat/drink. I order food to go and eat it at home.
