DUmmie upset that spouse isn't a raving lunatic coward

Or... Knowing how DUmmies must be like to live with IRL... maybe the spouse does want the DUmmie to kick the bucket.

this COVID thing is not over - and I'm being held mask-hostage by my spouse - AGAIN

I'm beyond pissed and looking for suggestions.

The new strain(s) of COVID are not only more contagious - but also more deadly. Nonetheless, my spouse, once again, decided to go inside someone else's house and eat (i.e. take her mask off). This person is a legal client. Not even a relative or a close friend (although I'm not comfortable with her being unmasked around those categories either). Her reasoning is that they are so isolated and she is so isolated so she has to do something to build their trust. (No, it makes no sense - isolation, yes. But you don't need to remove your mask to build trust with a paying client {who has already decided to let you into her home} - especially when you have a wife with 2, potentially 3 cancers and diabetes.)

I would not even have known (to be able to protect myself), except for the fact that she brought leftovers home - and I asked. We've lost friends in the last couple of weeks to COVID who don't know where they got it from because they were really being careful . . . except when they went out without a mask; except for that birthday dinner, except . . . " I probably know 100 people who have had COVID, and 20 who have serious long-term effects - or who have died.

She has promised, repeatedly, that she won't take her mask off indoors with people who are not members of our household. And, repeatedly, she breaks her word. I caught her a week ago ordering food for her and her clients (different ones) and was able to make a big enough stink that she canceled her order. She says she did not take her mask off in their home - and, so far, when I've pinned her down with specific questions she gives me an honest answer . . . albeit sometimes after giving evasive incomplete answers first.

When she left this morning, I thought about saying something to her, since I knew she was going to visit a client. But I didn't because I hate to assume that every time she goes outside of the house she is going to break her promise to me and stop wearing her mask - and it was about a week from the last almost oops so I thought the recollection of my anger would be fresh enough.

Despite having 2 cancers and diabetes, it will be more than a month before I can get vaccinated. So there's nothing I can do to protect myself short of masking 24/7 and sleeping separate from my spouse.

My spouse's suggestion after I blew up today was, "Get a shot." She knows darn well, as a member of the board of the local health department, that it will be at least a month before I am eligible to register - for one of the very few slots that are available. All she will promise is that she will do her best. So I'm pretty bummed and am into being passive aggressive (well, not even really passive).

I'm about to post a 14-day count-down on the bathroom mirror to remind her of the consequences she has imposed on me because she apparently doesn't care enough about my health to manage to keep her damn mask on for an hour or two.

I'd love:

suggestions for short pithy sayings (E.g. 1 hour of freedom for you = 84 hours of captivity for me - or - Practice saying: “Sorry! I’d love to eat with you – but my spouse has an aggressive cancer and she cannot get a vaccine for at least another month. I can’t afford to put her life at risk.”)

OR anything you have found that helps to keep a recalcitrant family member from bringing COVID home to the family.

At this point, I'm seriously considering taking an air mattress to work for the next month.

I know about 20 people total (and by know, I mean know of) that have had COVID... period... none of which have died. So this DUmmie must be going to COVID wards and introducing themselves to reach that number.... or is a flat out liar.

I doubt the risk of getting Covid is any greater for normal people than it is for fear-controlled Panic Porn Addicts, but folks like DU-Moron Ms. Toad are impervious to facts.

I know some folks who have gotten Covid. One was ultra careful and kept their "bubbles" small, and seldom went outside of their bubble (very occasional shopping) ... and still got Covid ... from within one of their bubbles. The bottom line, IMO, is don't be stupid, but understand that being very careful isn't perfect protection.

Either her state is insanely control-freakish or "Ms. Toad" is wrong about her eligibility, especially if she's also a Baby-Boomer.

Interesting timing on the "OMG, a worse Covid!"




Not buying it.

Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”

Because viruses mutate so easily (small mutations) there are probably millions or billions of SARS-CoV-2 sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub- ... -sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-variants "out there". But the MSM are in full Panic-Porn mode.

Though she didn't say it outright, Ms. Toad seems to know that the two currently approved (EUA) vaccines are effective against the Panic-Porn peddlers' "favorite" variants, the UK and South Africa variants. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine, currently awaiting EUA review (which will happen 3 bleeping weeks after J & J applied for EUA!!!) is also effective against those variants.

I'm at the point now where I call B.S.  Just look at SF and the lockdown there. Only privately owned business's/blocks are subject while City owned blocks are not.

13. Yes -

There's a fair amount of relationship and ego damage associated with her diagnosis perhaps a decade ago with mild cognitive impairment. She was fired from one job, was booted from a PhD program, and has been unable to get full-time employment since then. After the first two in that list (accompanied by my personal observations) I finally got her to agree to be tested for memory issues. Getting tested was, unfortunately, a battle and did a fair amount of relationship damage.

What I didn't know, until after diagnosis, was that the nature of her impairment (primarily to her executive reasoning) made it impossible for her to recognize she was impaired. An incompetent medical provider exascerbated the problem by insisting that any reports I provided him with about her progress/losses be made in her presence. Since she still believes she is unimpaired, describing to the practitioner in her presence, the evidence that it was better, worse, or stable did more damage. (The standard for memory care is for the caregiver to meet privately with the practitioner.)

The good news is that she has been relatively stable for the past few years - and still functions well enough that only her siblings have independently noticed.

But not having a regular job and having a lot of the volunteer work she was doing regularly makes her more isolated, and she is an extrovert so the lockdown has been harder on her. That said, she is not impaired enough that she can't follow a simple rule: If you're in a room with someone you don't live with - wear a mask. She just chooses not to.

In defense of Michael Douglas, I would've been trying to get throat cancer that way with Zeta-Jones back in the day.
