Kind of upset with my mother [View all]

My mother (79) lives with me. For the last year, I did EVERYTHING that involved going out into the public. Why? To keep her (and myself) as safe from getting Covid as was possible. I wore the mask, disinfected my hands and car, wear gloves, and limited my outings to just going to the grocery store or pharmacy.

So mom got her second shot about a month ago now, and I am still trying daily to get an appointment for mine. I'm 59, and have COPD, and Lupus. So I'm vulnerable.

What did I just see her doing? Talking (unmasked) to an (unmasked) neighbor. She was about 2-3 feet from him.

It just really hurts. She got very defensive when I asked her about it later. I have read reports both ways, as to whether or not someone with a vaccine can still carry the infection. Seems like there is no definitive one way or the other.

So it just kind of hurts my feelings that she gave me zero consideration when she started gabbing with our neighbor.

Oh, and I pay all the bills around here too. And I lost my job in March. Maybe I'm being over sensitive.
