Wore a mask to my therapy appt (they are requiring it) and spent half the time adjusting it so constantly touching my face/mask. I don't think I touch my face once without the mask at PT ..... wonder what they are going to do if I start in the pool for the PT they think will help my knees too.....ain't wearing a mask in the pool.....
This!!!

I wear a mask when I have to. But then, I only leave the house when I need to. I've always been that way. I'd much rather be at home than out shopping.

When I have a mask on, I'm always having to fix it so that I can breathe. It feels like I'm suffocating and the longer I wear the harder I have to breathe to get enough air.

Sooner or later we are all going to get the virus. Unless they come up with a vaccine that actually works. Even if they do, I'll be very hesitant to take it.

For those that don't hesitate to take a rushed, untested vaccine because they've been told it's safe, I have one word (look it up if you're too young to remember this) THALIDOMIDE!

No Thalidomide wasn't a vaccine ; BUT it was told to everyone that it was safe and it wasn't..... not alot of testing went into it and the damage was found out after the fact. I think that is what @Britesea is trying to get across....

Just on the radio that the CDC has just decided that wearing a mask may not be in a healthy persons' best interest and that they are no longer promoting it for those that have no health compromising situations.

SHEESH...... and our "mandatory" wearing a mask just went into effect today....

I keep thinking of the Fen-Phen disaster. A wonderful weight loss miracle pill. Until it gave you heart valve problems and outright killed some people..

@farmerjan I just had to laugh. BJ had to go to doctor today for checkup. Everyone had on a mask except the doctor. LOL LOL

So it’s not healthy for healthy people, but what about the health compromised? Doesn’t wearing a mask protect them from the rest of us? Out of respect for others, it IS an aggravation, but I will wear one. At least until these Bozos can get it straight. LOL
