I just watched “Idiocracy” for the first time. I think we’re at the point where the sprouting crops represent the rising pediatric ICU cases, and most of the United States has gone to Starbucks for a “latte“

No ICU beds in my home state? Fine, fine. The preventable nuclear explosion in a dumpster is finally here, the one I’ve been screaming about for 18 months. I think I finally feel calmer now.

yesterday- busy UC with LOTS of Covid +. Vaxx conversations with those for whom it was not too late - lots of blank stares or some hostility. A few reasonable questions. no questions at all about “experimental medicine“ when it came to referring + for monoclonal antibodies. 😣

What ED and hospital staff are feeling right now ISN’T burnout imo. It’s the steadily mounting unsustainable anxiety of watching a train full of unaware people round the bend into a wall they won’t see. Calling it burnout makes it seem like it’s our fault. It isn’t.

As cases drop and vaccinations rise I am just now fully realizing the impact my 11 mo of fear, frustration, anger and depression have had on my family and friends. So many regrets...

Early mornings lead to musings...is the lack of empathy that got us to 3000+ deaths/day just going to grow ever more predominant? Mention the numbers to regular people and I’m mostly getting the “meh, it is what it is” response now. As B.1.1.7 begins to wander the country...

Until you are ready to get on a plane with 199 other people, knowing that 1 of you will be randomly selected to be shoved off mid-flight, don’t talk to me about your “99.5% survival rate”. 🤨

yelling into the void – caring spouse of 22 yrs, non-medical, worries that pandemic has “changed me“. Seems he has to defend me to other people when I am worried about safety issues. So if 3400 deaths a day isn’t changing people it’s me that has the problem?!?

took a public phone call while on shift today. Lady requested that I prescribe HCQ for Covid positive sister. When I told her I would not she responded angrily with “that’s just bullshit!!” Right, that’s where we are with Covid in Mississippi...still

I’m SO ANGRY for all of us in healthcare - in disbelief at the unconcerned people all around me. So...in line at any store wearing my mask among bare faces I force several coughing fits. It’s an average of three before I can see them start to look worried. It’s a tiny win...

"Airborne. Masks. Ventilation. Filtration. Distance." It's the "Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV." for those who actually have an interest in dealing with this pandemic.

A lunch guest in my home, whom I have apparently sorely misjudged just stated “I I think after November 3d most of this just goes away” re the latest rise in US positive cases. I am NOT OK
