Fight off Pandemic Fatigue

For almost two years, we have been forced to face a deadly pandemic. This was something no one could have imagined happening, but it did. This situation has plagued every inch of the world and left no area untouched. While the pandemic caused a great deal of uncertainly, sadness, loss, stress, learning ways to adapt to our new “normal”, and feelings of isolation.

The pandemic lift has allowed many to work from home, which is a benefit. Others might be learning how to stay on task working from home while helping their children with remote learning. The pandemic has brought on good changes but has also shown the true colors of so many. This part has not been pretty but has been a rude awakening.

Since the pandemic started most have experienced a type of fatigue we did not know existed. Through the rest of this post, I am going to explain three types of fatigue and a few ways we can counteract fatigue.

TYPES OF PANDEMIC FATIGUE:

1. Decision Fatigue- No one ever had to think about if it was safe to go out to dinner at their favorite restaurant before the pandemic. Unfortunately, now we must think about this as it is a life-or-death situation because it can be. We need to decide if it is safe to sit inside or safer to sit outside or if it is at all safe. Constantly worrying that the decisions we make will be wrong and cause illness or worst-case scenario death. The sad truth is our everyday choices are weighing on us and wearing us out.

2. Physical Fatigue- The many challenges we have encountered with the pandemic may be affecting our physical health in various ways. First off, the stress we are feeling could be causing falling asleep difficult or keeping us up at night. It is possible to feel overly stressed and our typical healthy coping mechanisms are not helping reduce the stress. This may force people to turn to less healthy coping mechanisms, such as overeating, alcohol, or other substances that we think make us feel better.

3. Compassion Fatigue- Our first responders and medical professionals are on the front line and witness the awful issues with the pandemic every day. These people are seeing people struggle and take their last breath daily. Some of these people are saying their goodbyes to loved ones on a computer screen, which can be heartbreaking. However, you do not need to be someone on the front line to experience this circumstance. We all see these cases on the news, and it can tug on the heartstrings because knowing someone lost someone, they love is extremely sad.

Even though it may feel impossible to not feel the threats of pandemic fatigue, there are several ways to find stability thought so much instability. During these challenging times it is crucial to take care of your body and soul, and even find some forms of optimism.

1. Ensure your basic needs are being met: Combating pandemic fatigue requires maintaining proper nutrition, sleep habits, good hygiene, and mild exercise. Of course, this does not mean you need to dive into a new healthy habit immediately. What this can mean is going to bed five or so minutes earlier, taking a short walk at lunch, or simply doing light stretching during the day.

2. Discover mindfulness exercise that works: Mindfulness exercises can be a useful tool in overcoming pandemic fatigue. This can be practiced in many ways and what works for some people, might not help another in the same way. It might be beneficial to write down some mindfulness exercises you would like to try until you find the perfect one for you! A few ideas are Five-minute guided meditation, mindful pause, or reciting your favorite song. Experiment with different techniques and you will find the right one but be sure to stick with the one that works the best.

3. Enjoy Stability when you can: Review your daily routine and determine what is not negotiable and must be done. Understand what needs to be done no matter what happens and what does not and eliminate what is not important. The must be done could be going to bed at the same time every night, eating meals at a certain time, or exercising the same routine at the same time on specific days. Do not forget to make some of the “important/must do” things that bring you a sense of joy.

4. Set boundaries with social media and the news: I am sure I am not the only one that followed new COVID cases and deaths during the beginning of the pandemic. Even now as the cases of COVID are decreasing, I still tend to look up the latest information about new cases and vaccinations. This can be very exhausting and frustrating, so setting boundaries is one of the healthiest things to do. Both the news and social media are full of negativity and can cause even more pandemic fatigue.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I had taken a break from writing about anything to do with the pandemic, but I thought this information could be useful to some of you. I would love to know what you think and if you have anything else to add. I hope your week went well and you are looking forward to the weekend. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

It is finally Friday

We finally made it through this week y’all! Happy Friday and I hope you are looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. It has without a doubt been a long week, but it was not too terrible. It could always be worst. Right? This afternoon is my routine follow-up appointment with the pain management doctor, and they are always the same. Nothing changes with the appointment or my pain level, so I am just doing what the doctor orders.

Over the past week, there was a drastic change in the weather. I think y’all already know how much the insane heat bothers me, but the cold tends to have a negative effect as well, especially when it includes rain. I think it might be more to do with when the changes go from extreme heat to cold that my body does not react well to. Of course, the heat does cause my symptoms to be worse than normal. Then the cold forces me to tense up which in turn causes pain to escalate because of the tension throughout my body. I think it would be perfect if the temperatures could be in the low 70’s year-round, but I know that will never happen. A girl can dream though!

Do any of you have plans for the weekend? I know you will not be surprised that I do not really have anything planned. My husband works all weekend and I do not. I will hopefully sleep in past 6:30, but that is if the cats allow it. The little girl that sleeps with me thinks it is her job to wake me up early and has reinforcement from our older cat. They just want treats and to hopefully get comfortable on my lap.

I am not violent in any way shape or form, but there are a few good UFC fights this weekend that we will watch on Sunday morning. In two of the fights, I have my pick of who I want to win, but we will see what happens. I am a huge fan of one of the female fighters, Rose Namajunas. After listening to her story, I learned that we have a few things in common, and through her story she gives me hope to move past events from the past.

There are a few things I want to write about and have had in my mind this week, but I will not make any promises. I am going to try though. It is always challenging to do the posts I want to do during the week because of how exhausted I am after work. So, the weekends are the time I try, and I am not always successful and often fail with this.

I hope you had a good week, and you will be able to let go of anything that happened during the week that caused you to feel negative emotions. The weekends are too short to allow for those negative emotions to impact your weekend. Life and weekends are short, so we need to be able to do what brings us the most joy. I found a pretty quote that I wanted to share and hope it helps you to leave the week in the past and enjoy your weekend! I would love to know what you think of the quote I am sharing!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site today. Whatever you have planned for the weekend, please do so in the safest way possible. I want to believe there will come a day when the virus is in the past and we can live our lives in a normal way again without fear of getting the virus because I know how hard this is. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

The Five Wishes Game

I have good news for y’all, we are halfway through this week and so close to the weekend. How has this week been for you? I hope it has been a good week and you are feeling well. It often feels like the weeks get long or just drag by and then the weekends fly by in the blink of an eye. If only the weekends were five days, and the weekdays were two. As children, most of us wanted to be adults, but we did not understand what that meant.

Has anyone ever thought about what it would be like to have a genie in a bottle that could fulfill five wishes? I think that would be an amazing thing and it could do some wonderful things for the world. Of course, now I am going to ask you what your five wishes would be and why? I think this can be a fun thing to do and allow everyone to get to know one another because wishes can say a lot about a person.

I think it is only fair that I play along and share what mine would be with you. My first wish would be to end the pain people in the world feel. The reason this would be one of my wishes is that I know how awful pain is and what it does to someone’s mental health. No one in this world should have to suffer from something so detrimental to one’s being. Pain can make someone feel alone, down on themselves, sad, angry, and a load of other negative emotions.

My second wish would be for there to be world peace. Life is already challenging enough without all the hatred that fills the emptiness in a person’s heart. Everyone should be treated fairly, equally, and with respect. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be the way things are because there is still way too much discrimination in every place around the world. I never saw things being this bad before, but that is probably because I was naïve and or too blind to see things the way they were.

My third wish would be that no one would ever go hungry. The United States where I live has so much wealth, but it is not evenly distributed. Some people have more money than they could ever spend in five lifetimes, so if they could share a little with those that are less fortunate no person would ever go without being fed. I know some might argue that those with ridiculous amounts of money worked hard for it and maybe some were not able to. But what does it matter?

My fourth wish would be that cures would be found for all the illnesses that plague the lives of so many. Heart disease is the #1 killer and Cancer is the #2 killer of people around the world. Other illnesses such as Dementia, Huntington’s disease, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, and the list goes on brings so many awful things to a person’s life, and they did nothing to deserve this kind of cruelty.

The last wish I would have would be that no child would ever experience child abuse of any kind. This abuse includes physical, sexual, emotional, and neglect. The effects of child abuse can be a lifelong battle this child will experience into adulthood. Children are innocent and should be protected because they are not able to do much to get out of the abusive environment.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared today, and I look forward to reading what your five wishes would be. I thought this might be fun to do or at least interesting. If only our wishes could come true, the world would be much easier to handle. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

One Day Down & Four To Go

We have made it through one day of this week and only have four left before the weekend arrives again. Yesterday was a busy day at work, which made the day go by quickly. To be honest, even though I do prefer my days to be busy it did cause my pain to increase drastically. I guess it is probably because of the way my desk is and how my hands and arms are for 8 eight hours seldom taking a break. I should know better by now and get up to step away from the desk for at least 5 minutes every 30 minutes. My reason for not getting up walking away from my workspace is because I do not want to lose my focus, especially since as the day progresses, I become more fatigued.

I do have a doctor’s appointment on Friday with my pain management doctor. This is just my routine follow-up I must do every three months, so it is not a big deal. I like the Nurse Practitioner because she is nice and easy to talk to. Considering I live about an hour and a half from the office, she allows me to do my appointments every three months, instead of every two months. I really hate driving on the Interstate because the road is away, and the traffic can be terrible as well. It amazes me how some people got their driver’s license because they never should have!

The weather has been getting cooler with only a few off days when it is warmer than it should be in November. Of course, this week rain is expected at least one day, which always makes things worse for me. The rain causes pain to be much worse and other issues to escalate. Has anyone else noticed changes in the way you feel when it is rainy and or cold?

I hope you had a good day yesterday and you are feeling well What is the weather like where you are living, and do you like it? I know this is not the normal way of my posts, but I am trying to keep up with daily posts and I think writing about things I am going through might be helpful. I also want to get to know y’all better and think this might be a good way to do so. What do you think?

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared, and I am looking forward to hearing from you. I promise to respond to your comments as quickly as I can. I know things with COVID are getting better, but I think we still have a long way to go. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes.

Motivational Monday

It is Monday again! Are y’all ready for another amazing week? I hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend. I do believe we need a weekend to prepare us for another week. Last week was a little unusual for me because there were more changes at work. Thankfully, my job did not change and I did not have to decide move to another role or be laid off. The mortgage industry can be an uncomfortable position because there is so much uncertainty. I am thankful for my job, especially because I can work from home and do not have to worry about going into an office with COVID still being a HUGE issue.

A new week comes with new opportunities and challenges. I do think we are all strong enough to handle pretty much anything that is thrown our way. However, I do still believe we should start the new week with a little motivation. This is a good way to begin the week with an optimistic mindset. I hope you will find the quote I am sharing motivating and it helps your week start in a good way, and your week gets better with each day that passes. I do look forward to reading your thoughts on the quote I have shared with y’all!

I do not know about you, but I cannot believe it is already November. This year has gone by so incredibly fast and I only hope next year will not only be better, but safer from COVID. Even though the year has gone by fast, it has been an exhausting year. Most of us are still feeling like we are on house arrest because we are rarely going anywhere or doing anything we used to consider normal. Now when we leave the house, we must wear a mask and that gets a little suffocating. Masks are annoying, but being a little uncomfortable for a short time and living another day makes it worth it.

Thank you for taking the time to visiting my site today. As always I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and I appreciate your continued support. I have been trying to get back to my normal blogging schedule, but it has not been easy. After working 8 hours and starting at a computer screen, I am normally very fatigued at the end of the day. I will continue to keep trying to do better. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

How you can stay comfortable during colder months

Multiple Sclerosis is a unique and frustrating illness to live with. When you add in the effects different temperatures can create, Multiple Sclerosis can become three times as frustrating. Each season seems to be followed by different challenges. Of course, the heat acts like kryptonite for Multiple Sclerosis and can cause symptoms to worsen. Unfortunately, extreme heat can also create new symptoms to be exposed. When someone with MS is exposed to heat, they may experience fatigue, numbness, blurred vision, tremors, confusion, weakness, and balance issues.

When the seasons change from hot to cold, those with MS are forced to battle with other issues. Cold weather causes people with or without MS to become tense. The increased tension of the muscles can cause increased spasms, muscles feeling tighter, and difficulties moving limbs.

I have lived with Multiple Sclerosis for over 20 years, and I live in an area that seems to only have two and a half seasons. This may not make sense, but I say this because the temperatures are either insanely hot for about nine months, slightly chilly for about one month, and mildly cold for two months. Some people are fortunate enough to have four true seasons and hopefully experience at least one season where they are comfortable.

When seasons bring on various challenges it is crucial to discover ways to stay well and as healthy as possible. First, we need to allow our bodies time to adjust to the differences, especially when going from extreme heat to bitter cold. This is something that cannot be rushed and will play out according to how it does.

For anyone that lives with the same medical issue as I do, Multiple Sclerosis, I am going to share a few tips that can help you stay both comfortable and warm during the colder months. If your symptoms worsen with colder temperatures, please know this should be short-lived discomfort. The following tips may be helpful for you even if you do not have MS and deal with another medical issue. I have experienced issues with temperatures more than I care to admit, but these tips helped me stay as comfortable as I can.

The first tip I have, please understand will not always be easy. Sometimes when we make simple alterations, it can make hard tasks a little easier. Even when it seems impossible, try to keep moving. Try simple and moderate physical activities, such as short walks or stretching. This tip helps you to burn energy and keep you warmer.

The second tip might take experimenting with different types of clothing. Dressing in layers helps you to stay warm and allows you to remove clothing when you get too warm. The challenges involved in determining the right clothing will be how many layers is not enough, too much, or finally just right! Wearing a hat will keep your head warm. Wearing lined boots or socks will keep your feet warm. Hats and socks will not allow heat to escape from your head or feet, which assists with keeping the rest of you warm.

The third tip I am going to share is that it is important to keep your hands and feet warm. For those of you with Multiple Sclerosis, doctors believe that MS causes blood vessels in the hands and feet to overreact to cold temperatures. To protect your hands and feet from negative effects from cold temperatures, try using hand warmers or a heating pad. REMEMBER to use CAUTION when using a heating pad and to avoid blisters, do not apply heating pad directly to your skin.

On a side note, if you do have MS, you may be at risk for Raynaud’s phenomenon. This is a condition that causes your fingers and toes to lose heat. This can cause your fingers and toes to turn from white to blue to red as the blood starts to flow again. With this condition, you may feel numbness, pain, or feel as though someone is sticking you with pins and needles, which is an awful feeling.

The fourth tip to staying comfortable during the colder months is to warm your insides. During colder months it is easy to have a hot meal, such as soup. Plus, you can sip on hot drinks like coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and pour whatever your preferred beverage into an insulated mug. This will keep your drink warm longer and reduce trips to the kitchen to warm your drink.

Lastly, even on those crisp fall days or bitterly cold winter days, getting sunshine can warm you up. Simply walking outside for a short time to soak in some rays from the sun can be beneficial. Getting a little such sunshine can warm you up, allow your body to absorb some much-needed Vitamin D, and may boost your mood.

I am sure there are many other ways to stay warm and comfortable during the colder months, but these are the ones I know work for me. I would love to read any other suggestions you may have of things that have helped you. It is not too cold where I live, but I am sure it will happen in the next few months. Honestly, the temperatures are comfortable right now, if only the rain would not come back. Even if it is not cold, the rain always makes me feel terrible!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you found the information I have shared helpful, and I am looking forward to reading your comments. I promise I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can, but it will probably be once I am out of work. Please continue to do everything you can to stay safe from the virus that continues to plague the world. I do know the numbers are decreasing as more get vaccinated, but it is still a little terrifying. I hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

My Week Long Absence

Happy weekend y’all! I hope you had a great week, and your weekend is going fantastic. I was a little absent from blogging last week because I was trying to get the essay that I entered into a contest perfected and submitted. Thankfully, with the help of my “editor” help, that being my husband, mother, mother-in-law, and my mother’s boyfriend, I was able to get the essay entered on my birthday. I can admit that I was being overly critical of my writing abilities and almost changed my mind several times. However, I know if I had changed my mind, I would have regretted it because I would always wonder what would have happened and that would have tormented my mind. We should always try new things because we do not know what exciting new opportunities might avail. I have always thought the only way we can truly fail in life is if we give up or just do not try.

The contest I entered was a personal essay, which I wrote about when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Of course, it was a challenging time in my life, but I do think all that transpired during that time has made me a stronger person. There is a part of me that wishes I did not have to endure this diagnosis, but at the same time, it could have been far worse. Thankfully, the form of MS I have is not the worst case, but it does entail hard times that I continue to fight through. Unfortunately, I have to wait until late December to know the results and if my essay was a winner or not!

Life is not easy, and we are all faced with different challenges, but it is how we adapt and handle these challenges that let us know our true strengths. Life takes a strong will to survive and overcome the challenges in our path. I will always keep the promise I made to myself and my late grandfather close to my heart and that was that I would NEVER surrender to the MS and would continue the fight until I will the war going on in my body. Of course, there are times when it gets almost unbearable because the pain is out of control, but if I stopped fighting what kind of person would I be?

Throughout my forty years on this planet, (I just turned 40 on September 30th) I have dealt with various situations that could have broken me. I decided as a little girl to not allow the evil in my path to destroy my happiness. So many times, during my life, people have done their best to tear me down and make me feel like I was not worth anything, but those were the evil people that do not deserve the satisfaction of defeating me.

I am sharing all this with y’all, so you know that no matter what you go through in life you are not alone. It is crucial to NEVER allow anyone to make you feel you are worthless because that is so far from the truth. I think most people that prey on those they think are weak have demons within them that they have not faced or overcome, which I think is sad. Seriously, what kind of monster would prey on a child or a woman? I think the answer is a weak and pathetic individual that needs to seek help so they can face their demons and be better people. It is not only men that can behave this way because there are women that have the same kind of demon within them. The agonizing truth is mental health is a tragic situation and it is not being handled in the best way. It is possible if mental health was being treated properly, maybe the world would be better than it is now.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared, and it resonates with you. Everyone around the world needs to learn to accept others for who they are and help when it is feasible. I look forward to reading your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can. I hope the rest of your week is spent relaxing and safe! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Motivational Monday

Happy Monday, y’all! I hope you had a wonderful and safe weekend, and you are ready to tackle this week with determination and optimism. Monday mornings are not always easy, but this is the beginning of a new week that offers us a fresh start. A new week gives an opportunity to try again with things we did not accomplish last week, which I think is a great way to view another new week. This is the week of my birthday and anniversary. My husband and I have taken a few days off, but I think we have decided to not go anywhere because we have not gotten the booster shot to keep us safe from COVID. I might be a little disappointed about this, but who am I kidding I am VERY disappointed. I am trying to stay positive about this decision because I prefer to live another year then come into contact with COVID and end up in the hospital. There is always next year!

Can you believe it is almost October? I have always heard that as we age, time goes by faster, but the past two years have gone by with an accelerated speed. I guess the years going by so fast when we are living with the uncertainty of a deadly virus and other negative situations is not a bad thing. I am holding onto hope we will see an end to COVID-19 sooner than later, but there are times I think that is being overly optimistic and blind to the reality of this world. The quote I am sharing with y’all today might not be viewed as motivating, but the reason I find it motivating is because not fitting in with others while living in a world with an insane amount of hatred is a good thing. I might not fit in living where I do, but I do not want to fit in with these people.

What does this week have in store for you? I know not everything that happens during a week is planned and things will occur without notice causing us to readjust our plans. I am a very organized person and might be a bit of a control freak, so I hate when anything changes what is in my day planner. Normally, I have all appointments, meetings, goals, and work hours for me and my husband written down. There are changes that are necessary and I will adapt well to, but some changes I am resistant to. Considering we are not going anywhere to celebrate our anniversary or my birthday, I am thinking about canceling one of my PTO days but cannot seem to decide. Currently, the plan is to only work 2 days this week and be off until next Wednesday. I think saving one of my days off for a time we can go away is logical, but what do you think?

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared and look forward to reading your amazing comments. I promise to respond to all comments as quickly as I can, but it will probably be after work today. I hope your week starts off great and gets better with each day until the weekend returns. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up-Thursday

I prefer not to think of today as simply Thursday, but rather as Friday eve because it sounds better and makes me happier because I know the weekend is SO close. It has not been the best week and has been full of infuriating things which has made it challenging to not express my frustration with others in a polite manner. When I get too irritated I find I should be silent and alone so I do not say things I might regret and then have to apologize for later. Those that know me best understand what it means when I do not say anything at all about anything and tend to leave me be. The reasons I have felt this way during the week are mostly work-related but might have a lot to do with isolation and being confined to the house for WAY too long. I am sure I am not the only one that feels this way because we have all dealt with the same thing.

Now that we have almost made it through four days of this week and we have one final day to go before the weekend returns, I am sure I am not the only one that could use a little pick-me-up. I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you the lift up that might be needed and that it will help you through one last day of this LONG week. Even though it can be challenging at times, I do think that happiness is a choice we can make and that it takes less energy to be positive than it does to be negative. I kept trying to remind myself of this during the past week because it was important to remember. No matter how demanding life gets, it can always be worse.

I am sorry that this post started slightly pessimistic, but I think it is best to be transparent with y’all. I want my blog to be positive, encouraging, uplifting, but also real and honest. We all go through exhausting and demanding times in life and I think it might help to know that you are not alone because other people understand. I am not saying I am correct about this because it is possible I am dead wrong about this but would love to know what you think. Do you find it beneficial to know when other people are having a hard week, especially if you are as well? I am not having a pity party for the bad week, but explaining myself to y’all!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and read what I have written. I would like to encourage you to leave a comment, which I will respond to as quickly as I possibly can. I do hope you are having a good week and you are not allowing for anyone to tear you down because you do not deserve that kind of treatment. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Finally, Hello Weekend!

Happy Friday y’all and let us welcome the weekend back again! How did your week go? I do not think I will ever understand how a short week always feels so much LONGER! Logically, most would think that a week with four days would be shorter and easier, but that is never the case. I am sure everyone agrees with me and is SO happy about the weekend. Y’all are going to be surprised, but we do have plans for the weekend! We are going to the mall to look at the ring I want for our ten-year anniversary. Of course, we will do this in a safe manner by wearing a mask and disinfecting everything! Do y’all have plans for the weekend?

As we say “hello” to the weekend and “goodbye” to the week, we need to try doing what we can to enter the weekend in a positive and happy mindset! I want to take this moment to remind y’all that life is short and we only get one chance to live our life the best we possibly can. There is not a pause or rewind button on life and there are no so overs. I am sharing this quote to serve as a kind wake-up call for this. Once we discover who we are, we need to be the best person we can be. It is also crucial to be satisfied and happy with who we are. Life is not always about making everyone else happy, although that is important, we are not going to be able to make anyone happy if we are not happy with ourselves. I am guilty about being a people pleaser and putting everyone else’s needs and wants above my own, but I am trying to do better about this!

Over this weekend, I will encourage you to do things that bring you joy, but to do so in a safe manner. Unfortunately, we are not out of the woods with the pandemic and there are still too many new cases daily. For reasons I will never understand, people view the news and see the science to back up the dangers of this virus and still refuse to get vaccinated. There are no logical reasons to not get vaccinated because it has been approved by the FDA and it is saving lives! If you have not been vaccinated, I am begging you to do so!! Those that continue refusing to get the vaccine are the problem and they are killing others. The virus and vaccine are not political, but it is a sense of urgency!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared and truly hope my pleas for you to get vaccinated are heard and felt. I do not have a way to force people to do the right thing, but I will continue urging everyone to get vaccinated and wear a mask! I know some will disagree with me on what I have written, but I do still encourage your comments, which I will respond to as soon as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
