This is not living.
I’m a flu bro but if I had cancer I would not want anything to knock my immune system even more especially if I’m getting chemo or radiation...that being said I only play a doctor on Free Republic :) and I have no idea how badly the virus would affect people with cancer
Sheeeeyit. I’m afraid to leave my house because some deranged Karen might start bashing me about the head and shoulders with her purse because I’m not wearing a mask.
But the strategy work so well for the Boubonic Plague.
“But the strategy work so well for the Boubonic Plague.”
Not really...we still get outbreaks of plague up here in Washington State. So keeping people inside is not the answer to stopping the virus. It’s patient.
I've pretty much said the same thing before. Before my wonderful wife passed, she'd undergone 2 separate rounds of chemo. Her immune system was seriously messed up. If she were still around, I'd be living my life much differently. As it is, I'm alone and not a high risk, so I'm just trying my best to get on with a normal life. I've been fully ignoring all the insanity that surrounds all this as much as I can.

The socialists would just kill the patient anyways
Some 130,000 people put on a death list so if you showed up, you were killed. They even paid bonus money for how much they saved the socialists gov’t.
When the scandal was revealed the socialist just changed the name. One article below.
Top doctor’s chilling claim: The NHS kills off 130,000 elderly patients every year
The UK calls them “bed blockers”.
I am Truly Sorry to hear that.
And so sorry for your loss.
And for your wife having to go though that and the suffering the family went through.
I saw a spousal loss when my pop died. Mom was crushed. It took a heavy toll on her for several years. She pretty much had a nervous breakdown. It was long ago and after a few years she was ok. I’m sure it always hurts just less.
I can tell by your words that you loved her very much and that’s a beautiful thing to have. Most don’t anymore.
Have a good day.
I think it depends on what type of cancer you have and your current treatment.
I was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer almost six years ago. I am currently on androgen deprivation drugs. I go out when I want to because my immune system is in pretty good shape. I do avoid crowds because that’s just the smart thing to do, but it doesn’t stop me from going on with my normal life.
Thanks for your kind words. You’re right that not everyone gets to have such a great thing in their life. I have been blessed, and know it. She was a freeper. Glad she didn’t see what this nation has devolved to.
