Exclamation Re: Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #5 ...

When the pandemic first started, and we all began working from home, I started keeping track of cases in my state.

I complete it daily and share it with my supervisor.

I know cases have been on an upward trajectory recently, so today I compared last Sunday's numbers to this Sunday's numbers, and ...

We are +24% statewide, +43% the county we work in, and the university we work at?

She's UP 56% just since last Sunday alone!

I know things can't stay shut down forever, but it's definitely going to be quite risky when Fall Semester starts for sure, and ...

My fine institution is strongly suggesting the wearing of masks on campus, but not making it mandatory ... What the actual @#$%! ?!?!?

I think wearing of masks in in public should be mandated nationwide with hefty fines and penalties for those that refuse to do so!

It seems (no, it's real) that those of us that give a fig are at the mercy and whims of the selfish B&B's that don't.

To me, that just ain't right!

I love how it hurts just taking a peace of clothing out of the wardrobe

I'm being sarcastic.. my pain threshhold is not that high at all

and I want a tattoo?

hmm I think I need to rethink that.

Red face Re: Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #5 ...

I'd definitely rethink the tattoo ... I have two and it was right painful.

I liken the pain to having numerous cats slowly dragging their sharp little claws along your skin for an extended period of time ...

It burns, it stings ... Never again!

On another note, the University shifted gears and is now requiring masks to be worn on campus with disciplinary action for those that don't.

Hopefully they'll decide to not open at all and maintain online instruction through the Fall Semester then reevaluate for Spring Semester.

Either way, both of my doctors are advocating for me to continue to work at home under the ADA due to my health issues and high risk for intubation and death were I to be exposed and come down with it.

As it is now, I can control the risk of exposure because if I show up at the store and it's crowded I won't go in and can return at another time when it's less crowded.

I won't have that kind of control once I'm on campus and even with everyone wearing masks, the longer you are in close proximity with someone that has it the greater your risk of catching it goes up.

Therefore, Pfroggy pfingers crossed that I won't encounter too much of a hassle as far as being allowed to continue to work from home (telework) goes.

I've proven I'm quite reliable, trustworthy and responsible in that role so it shouldn't be an issue.
