I was hoping that if things get reopened, no major outbreak will follow, and people will realize that lockdowns aren’t necessary.
Things got reopened.
We are at zero deaths in my county.
We have three people on ventilators county-wide.
But it isn’t convincing anybody of anything.
People are acting like we are at the peak of a major outbreak of Bubonic plague. We have new restrictions kicking in on Monday. They will affect everybody down to 2-year-old kids.
It really messes with your mind. The reality you observe is completely different from the narrative about it.
By far, the psychological aspect of COVID has been the hardest for me. I have started to disassociate whenever people talk about it. I go to a different place in my mind and tune out their voices because I can’t be around people who are so massively terrified of… I have no idea what.
