    Despite having anxiety, being claustrophobic and having breathing issues from asthma/severe allergies I am wearing a mask. I don’t wear things around my neck either as even turtlenecks bothers me. If I start to feel to bad I go outside so I can get in my car and take it off. I trust you Bae considering the company you keep)

    I never like anything near my face. I do not wear cowl neck sweaters and even in the dead of winter do not use scarves. I think it goes back to when I was a young child. If my mother thought I was being too noisy in church she would clap her hand across my mouth and I would panic that I would not be able to breathe.

    But yeah, if people who don't want to wear a mask, despite its doubtful efficacy, they're inconsiderate, selfish disease spreaders ... according to some judgmental folks.
    I feel bad that you suffer from past trauma when wearing masks, but I would say that the vast majority of non-wearers in cases where masks are mandated are, yes, inconsiderate and selfish. Our local market requires masks. Today a woman walked in without a mask and the owner politely asked her to return to the car and put on a mask. The woman continued shopping and the owner had to again ask her to put on a mask. So the woman left in a huff but returned with the mask. Why couldn't she simply have been compliant at the outset?

    Last year when my husband was diagnosed with metapneumonitis, all the health care providers put masks on when entering the room. I had to wear a mask. Were they stupid?

Oddly, all people known to me personally for decades.

    Wear a face covering, folks, if you can. And don't listen to the Russian-generated "resist" memes and such that useful...folks...like Yppej pass along.
    Oh I would loved to hear that conference! I miss IP meetings. I could listen to our state epidemiologist all day long. The work and information fascinates me!

    I don't open my car door until my mask is in place. And I am a well-trained IP practitioner.

    Oddly, you don't have to be on social media to get infected with the disinformation.

    Oddly, you don't need any connection with Russia to be a victim of McCarthyism.

    Claustrophobia/trauma are real. And the benefit of masks is real. Both things can be real at the same time.

    probably as much Rupert Murdoch as Russia.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.
