The vaccine helps to minimize the need for hospitalization and death.
If the hospital beds are full of CoVid patients - a majority of hospitalizations and death are of the unvaccinated - what happens to those in car crashes, strokes, heart attacks when there are no more beds because of what I stated above?
So, while the vaccines have not helped in stopping the transmission - it has been helpful is lowering sickness to avoid death and hospitalization.



This is obviously off topic.. but I don’t know, I went for surgery on Wednesday, one of the biggest well known hospitals in NJ and it wasn’t overwhelmed. My grandfather is in the hospital in FL, no craziness going on in his hospital. I wish people would define the #s when they say overwhelm. And provide facts of these overwhelmed hospitals. When I think overwhelmed, I’m thinking 2020 start of pandemic. I keep hearing this blanket statement of “overwhelmed hosptials”, but don’t see where this is happening.

Now, If we get back on topic, doctor offices and testing sites are overwhelmed because of the hysteria of useless testing.



I believe it's the concern that the trend can overwhelm the hospitals fairly quickly.
ETA: I am social with a few doctors and nurses that are in the ER. They are dreading what they feel is coming. One does Urgent Care work as well and she was sharing how overwhelming things have gotten in the last couple of weeks because of increasing CoVid cases and Flu A cases. Now they test first for CoVid and if that is negative - they test for the flu and it's usually one or the other.



Maybe because they have less staff since they fired them also. The ones that were ok to work unvaccinated and praised but now pushed out.



Northwell, the largest health care provider in NY, fired 1400 out of a staff of appx. 76K...less then 2%.
I think those sick and in need of quarantining provide more of a risk to the capability of the staff then those that left due to the vaccine requirement.



Again, I don't know what hospitals are claiming they are overwhelmed.



I just saw Englewood in NJ say their ED is overwhelmed as people are going there for Covid testing.



My friend who is a nurse is so sick, she couldn’t go to urgent care around us because all of them are so over booked with people getting tested due to exposure. She had to go to Newark and is still waiting 5 days for her PCR results because they are so backed up. She also had to wait hours to get antibiotics. It’s really ridiculous. She is actually sick and can’t get help or the results she needs because of the hysterics.

She also said her doctors said the flu is horrible this year, crazy bad strain. She thinks she has the flu because the rapid was negative but she wants to confirm.



THIS is the reason WE care because it could always be one of us that is in the situation. People need to chill out and stop listening to the hysteria around them.

People are starting to drive alone with masks on again and I saw a man riding his bike past my house this morning with a mask on. I truly want to know, and not being snarky WHY you find the need to wear a mask when you are all alone and not going to be near anyone. I truly think so many people are so misinformed and that is why everyone is in panic mode and hysterical.



Well, I wear my mask in the parking lots because it’s a law. I don’t wear it while driving because it affects my vision (the masks come just below my eyes).

I will often wear the mask when walking back from the supermarket when I get my exercise because I forget, and then think, hey this is warm, so I leave it on. I’m not in hysterics. Chat Icon . It’s been snowing here a lot and I like to keep warm. That’s all.



Are there people actually staking others out to see if you have a mask on in the parking lots?




What are you trying to say here?

Yes, there are people who watch. There are people who check you have a mask on and also on public transport.

Not sure what your point is being that you said people are in hysterics. I’m not. I answered your question. End of story.




Not speaking of public transportation, I mean walking in parking lots. People are getting paid to do that? Damn what a coushy job.



I would hardly call supermarket employees and policemen cushy jobs. There are hardly any parking lots here and there are no cart people to collect carts. You pay and get the money back when it is returned. No cushy jobs.

Poor employees having to be responsible for that and what a waste of money for police to be doing that.

The Police don’t have to deal with as much gun crime and murders here.

The people that check aren’t constantly doing it. It’s like when you go on the subway, they check tickets, so now they have added on checking vaccinations and test results. Average I get checked for my ticket about 1-2 times a month. There is no turnstile. It goes on the honor system, but I’d rather not get charged with a huge fine. I don’t see it a waste of money at all. The huge fines make up for it.

Our numbers have considerably gone down and our hospitals aren’t as full since they started the stricter regulations.

Not all stores have parking lots. It’s very difficult to explain, but it’s like a cross between Queens and the City. I compared it to how the ticket checkers on public transport check tickets. It’s the same idea. I’m not even sure who checks. It may be the parking inspectors. I have seen the police fine people coming out of the subway on a pedestrian street not wearing a mask.

Bottom line: someone checks and it’s not constant. But I’d rather not receive a fine for it and it keeps me warm outside.

This is obviously off topic.. but I don’t know, I went for surgery on Wednesday, one of the biggest well known hospitals in NJ and it wasn’t overwhelmed.

I just saw Englewood in NJ say their ED is overwhelmed as people are going there for Covid testing.



My friend who is a nurse is so sick, she couldn’t go to urgent care around us because all of them are so over booked with people getting tested due to exposure. She had to go to Newark and is still waiting 5 days for her PCR results because they are so backed up. She also had to wait hours to get antibiotics. It’s really ridiculous.

She also said her doctors said the flu is horrible this year, crazy bad strain. She thinks she has the flu because the rapid was negative but she wants to confirm.

So just supermarkets require this? I thought you meant every parking lot in your area.
Poor employees having to be responsible for that and what a waste of money for police to be doing that.



The Police don’t have to deal with as much gun crime and murders here.

The people that check aren’t constantly doing it. It’s like when you go on the subway, they check tickets, so now they have added on checking vaccinations and test results. Average I get checked for my ticket about 1-2 times a month. There is no turnstile. It goes on the honor system, but I’d rather not get charged with a huge fine. I don’t see it a waste of money at all. The huge fines make up for it.

Our numbers have considerably gone down and our hospitals aren’t as full since they started the stricter regulations.



Confused, you were talking about parking lots. So all parking lots to all stores and other things?



Not all stores have parking lots. It’s very difficult to explain, but it’s like a cross between Queens and the City. I compared it to how the ticket checkers on public transport check tickets. It’s the same idea. I’m not even sure who checks. It may be the parking inspectors. I have seen the police fine people coming out of the subway on a pedestrian street not wearing a mask.

Bottom line: someone checks and it’s not constant. But I’d rather not receive a fine for it and it keeps me warm outside.



Interesting thanks. I will have to ask my niece if it is the same by her. She is out and about all over the place all the time. Not really sure where she is located though to you.

The vaccine helps to minimize the need for hospitalization and death.
If the hospital beds are full of CoVid patients - a majority of hospitalizations and death are of the unvaccinated - what happens to those in car crashes, strokes, heart attacks when there are no more beds because of what I stated above?
So, while the vaccines have not helped in stopping the transmission - it has been helpful is lowering sickness to avoid death and hospitalization.



This is obviously off topic.. but I don’t know, I went for surgery on Wednesday, one of the biggest well known hospitals in NJ and it wasn’t overwhelmed. My grandfather is in the hospital in FL, no craziness going on in his hospital. I wish people would define the #s when they say overwhelm. And provide facts of these overwhelmed hospitals. When I think overwhelmed, I’m thinking 2020 start of pandemic. I keep hearing this blanket statement of “overwhelmed hosptials”, but don’t see where this is happening.

Now, If we get back on topic, doctor offices and testing sites are overwhelmed because of the hysteria of useless testing.



I believe it's the concern that the trend can overwhelm the hospitals fairly quickly.
ETA: I am social with a few doctors and nurses that are in the ER. They are dreading what they feel is coming. One does Urgent Care work as well and she was sharing how overwhelming things have gotten in the last couple of weeks because of increasing CoVid cases and Flu A cases. Now they test first for CoVid and if that is negative - they test for the flu and it's usually one or the other.



Maybe because they have less staff since they fired them also. The ones that were ok to work unvaccinated and praised but now pushed out.



Northwell, the largest health care provider in NY, fired 1400 out of a staff of appx. 76K...less then 2%.
I think those sick and in need of quarantining provide more of a risk to the capability of the staff then those that left due to the vaccine requirement.



Again, I don't know what hospitals are claiming they are overwhelmed.



I just saw Englewood in NJ say their ED is overwhelmed as people are going there for Covid testing.



My friend who is a nurse is so sick, she couldn’t go to urgent care around us because all of them are so over booked with people getting tested due to exposure. She had to go to Newark and is still waiting 5 days for her PCR results because they are so backed up. She also had to wait hours to get antibiotics. It’s really ridiculous. She is actually sick and can’t get help or the results she needs because of the hysterics.

She also said her doctors said the flu is horrible this year, crazy bad strain. She thinks she has the flu because the rapid was negative but she wants to confirm.



Sorry but this post makes no sense. Your friend is sick so she needs to get tested but others who are also sick should not get tested? She add already tested negative but wants yet another test to confirm? If the flu is horrible this year perhaps many of those other people were as sick as she was with that flu? She had to wait hours at the pharmacy for antibiotics? Why— because other folks who are also sick needed antibiotics?

And you just said you took your son to be tested because he was exposed. Yet you are criticizing others trying to be tested due to exposure?

THIS is the reason WE care because it could always be one of us that is in the situation. People need to chill out and stop listening to the hysteria around them.

People are starting to drive alone with masks on again and I saw a man riding his bike past my house this morning with a mask on. I truly want to know, and not being snarky WHY you find the need to wear a mask when you are all alone and not going to be near anyone. I truly think so many people are so misinformed and that is why everyone is in panic mode and hysterical.



I want to know why this bothers you so bad. Why do you care if people have a mask on?? What difference does that make to you? It’s their business not yours. And they are doing nothing that concerns you like making you wait extra time in a line bc you didn’t get vaccinated but now that’s everyone else’s issue bc you have to wait to get tested. I’m honestly perplexed why this bothers you so much that you bring it up in almost every Covid thread. Do you not see that nobody ever attempts to answer that stupid question for you?



I like wearing a mask outside when it's cold. Wearing one while bike riding makes total sense to me. A mask stays on much better than a scarf. And sometimes my car is cold when I first get in and I keep my mask on for a a few minutes. Or I might be going from work to a nearby store and I just keep it on while I drive there. Who cares why anyone else wears a mask.



I literally can't breath to the point of anxiety attack so I can't imagine wearing it by choice.
I even got the cheese cloth ones and I am STILL panicking with it on.
My husband is like- what is wrong with you, you can breath right through it. But I feel like I can't.
It's probably psychological. I can't have anything over my nose and mouth. It sends me into a tail spin
It triggers my anxiety.



My office makes us wear it all day. So between my commute time to and from the city and wearing it in the office on the days when go in, I get so used to it that I literally forget it’s on my face.

My husband picked me up from the train station after work and was giving me weird looks. Turns out I still had it on for a good 15 minutes after I sat in the car!

Obviously you struggle with reading comprehension. I said I didn’t take my son to get tested because the lines were long and to get an appointment were insane. And since I saw the madness I didn’t bother, therefore not taking the opportunity from someone who is sick. I know how to read the room and the situation unlike many people in this world.

And I also never said people who aren’t sick shouldn’t get tested or treatment at urgent care or the doctors. Please show where I said that. I actually agreed with naturalmama.

Secondly, my friend took a rapid test which is not the same as a regular test. Duh. As a nurse and student she needs a negative test from one that is not rapid. This is not breaking news. No one ever said all the people who were sick were sick with Covid. I know I never did as I don’t believe everything is Covid. I’m not stupid. If anything I think it is the flu. And AGAIN I never said she waited at the pharmacy for antibiotic, she had to wait to be seen at the urgent care because she is sick and needed antibiotics. Further proving my point that morons who aren’t sick and just want to know are taking up resources for those who need to be seen by doctors. Like my friend and anyone else who is sick. I never said she was special, I was giving an example. Learn to read and stop making sh!t up and questioning things I never said.


What the fuq is your point in any of your questions?

ETA: also by the way when I get my son tested it’s at the CVS drove thru. I don’t take him to the urgent care or wait on long lines. I also never have take an opportunity from someone to see a doctor because my son was getting tested.

My reading is fine…your writing just does not always make sense. You contradict yourself in the above so perhaps my questions were based on trying to understand wtf you are trying to say.

They also stemmed from frustration at the nasty, condescending attitude you and some others on here have. People who were exposed but are “not sick” want to know because they may still be positive and spread it to others. And those others may get “get sick” with symptoms and wind up clogging up more urgent cares, doctors offices, etc. They may also get others sick who will also need resources. What will it take to make you people understand this??

This very thing just happened with several people I know. It ran the gamut from asymptomatic, to mild symptoms, to elderly family members who got really sick from the person they live with would not test— despite being exposed- because THEY were “not sick.”

Some of the “morons” you refer to may also be in need of a test to confirm for work or school…just like your friend. So yes it it not always covid (DUH)… but sometimes it IS and some people are trying to do the right thing by testing I if they were exposed—even if they are not visibly sick— so they can let those who were around them know. But keep calling everyone a moron, hysterical, etc.

And with that, I will go back to bed since covid is currently kicking my and DH’s asses!!!

Prove where I contradicted myself and prove where I didn’t make sense? You posted a bunch a shit that wasn’t anything I said. Even your response had nothing to do with combating what I wrote. No one is talking about testing for work or school.
I was giving a clear example of why over loading the urgent cares is wrong and how it effects other. Learn to read.

I will be nasty because everything you wrote about what I said was completely inaccurate and false. I never said any of it.

Covid is kicking your ass, is that my fault too? Did my nastiness give it to you? What the hell does that have to do with anything? What is your point?

Btw my son became symptomatic, is it ok to test him now?? Go back to bed.
Bye Felicia!

She add already tested negative but wants yet another test to confirm? If the flu is horrible this year perhaps many of those other people were as sick as she was with that flu? She had to wait hours at the pharmacy for antibiotics? Why— because other folks who are also sick needed antibiotics?

And you just said you took your son to be tested because he was exposed. Yet you are criticizing others trying to be tested due to exposure?



Obviously you struggle with reading comprehension. I said I didn’t take my son to get tested because the lines were long and to get an appointment were insane. And since I saw the madness I didn’t bother, therefore not taking the opportunity from someone who is sick. I know how to read the room and the situation unlike many people in this world.

And I also never said people who aren’t sick shouldn’t get tested or treatment at urgent care or the doctors. Please show where I said that. I actually agreed with naturalmama.

Secondly, my friend took a rapid test which is not the same as a regular test. Duh. As a nurse and student she needs a negative test from one that is not rapid. This is not breaking news. No one ever said all the people who were sick were sick with Covid. I know I never did as I don’t believe everything is Covid. I’m not stupid. If anything I think it is the flu. And AGAIN I never said she waited at the pharmacy for antibiotic, she had to wait to be seen at the urgent care because she is sick and needed antibiotics. Further proving my point that morons who aren’t sick and just want to know are taking up resources for those who need to be seen by doctors. Like my friend and anyone else who is sick. I never said she was special, I was giving an example. Learn to read and stop making sh!t up and questioning things I never said.


What the fuq is your point in any of your questions?

ETA: also by the way when I get my son tested it’s at the CVS drove thru. I don’t take him to the urgent care or wait on long lines. I also never have take an opportunity from someone to see a doctor because my son was getting tested.



My reading is fine…your writing just does not always make sense. You contradict yourself in the above so perhaps my questions were based on trying to understand wtf you are trying to say.

They also stemmed from frustration at the nasty, condescending attitude you and some others on here have. People who were exposed but are “not sick” want to know because they may still be positive and spread it to others. And those others may get “get sick” with symptoms and wind up clogging up more urgent cares, doctors offices, etc. They may also get others sick who will also need resources. What will it take to make you people understand this??

This very thing just happened with several people I know. It ran the gamut from asymptomatic, to mild symptoms, to elderly family members who got really sick from the person they live with would not test— despite being exposed- because THEY were “not sick.”

Some of the “morons” you refer to may also be in need of a test to confirm for work or school…just like your friend. So yes it it not always covid (DUH)… but sometimes it IS and some people are trying to do the right thing by testing I if they were exposed—even if they are not visibly sick— so they can let those who were around them know. But keep calling everyone a moron, hysterical, etc.

And with that, I will go back to bed since covid is currently kicking my and DH’s asses!!!



Uggh sorry to hear but aren’t you vaccinated? Maybe even boostered?

How many shots do you think you will have to take before the virus won’t kick your ass?

The vaccine helps to minimize the need for hospitalization and death.
If the hospital beds are full of CoVid patients - a majority of hospitalizations and death are of the unvaccinated - what happens to those in car crashes, strokes, heart attacks when there are no more beds because of what I stated above?
So, while the vaccines have not helped in stopping the transmission - it has been helpful is lowering sickness to avoid death and hospitalization.



This is obviously off topic.. but I don’t know, I went for surgery on Wednesday, one of the biggest well known hospitals in NJ and it wasn’t overwhelmed. My grandfather is in the hospital in FL, no craziness going on in his hospital. I wish people would define the #s when they say overwhelm. And provide facts of these overwhelmed hospitals. When I think overwhelmed, I’m thinking 2020 start of pandemic. I keep hearing this blanket statement of “overwhelmed hosptials”, but don’t see where this is happening.

Now, If we get back on topic, doctor offices and testing sites are overwhelmed because of the hysteria of useless testing.



I believe it's the concern that the trend can overwhelm the hospitals fairly quickly.
ETA: I am social with a few doctors and nurses that are in the ER. They are dreading what they feel is coming. One does Urgent Care work as well and she was sharing how overwhelming things have gotten in the last couple of weeks because of increasing CoVid cases and Flu A cases. Now they test first for CoVid and if that is negative - they test for the flu and it's usually one or the other.



Maybe because they have less staff since they fired them also. The ones that were ok to work unvaccinated and praised but now pushed out.



Northwell, the largest health care provider in NY, fired 1400 out of a staff of appx. 76K...less then 2%.
I think those sick and in need of quarantining provide more of a risk to the capability of the staff then those that left due to the vaccine requirement.



Again, I don't know what hospitals are claiming they are overwhelmed.



I just saw Englewood in NJ say their ED is overwhelmed as people are going there for Covid testing.



My friend who is a nurse is so sick, she couldn’t go to urgent care around us because all of them are so over booked with people getting tested due to exposure. She had to go to Newark and is still waiting 5 days for her PCR results because they are so backed up. She also had to wait hours to get antibiotics. It’s really ridiculous. She is actually sick and can’t get help or the results she needs because of the hysterics.

She also said her doctors said the flu is horrible this year, crazy bad strain. She thinks she has the flu because the rapid was negative but she wants to confirm.



Sorry but this post makes no sense. Your friend is sick so she needs to get tested but others who are also sick should not get tested?

Yes, let’s sweep this all under the rug.

Sounds like she is worse off than the simple cold that we are being told with the vaccine you will get. Only the unvaccinated will get it bad. Hmmmmmm

Prove where I contradicted myself and prove where I didn’t make sense? You posted a bunch a shit that wasn’t anything I said. Even your response had nothing to do with combating what I wrote. No one is talking about testing for work or school.
I was giving a clear example of why over loading the urgent cares is wrong and how it effects other. Learn to read.

I will be nasty because everything you wrote about what I said was completely inaccurate and false. I never said any of it.

Covid is kicking your ass, is that my fault too? Did my nastiness give it to you? What the hell does that have to do with anything? What is your point?

Btw my son became symptomatic, is it ok to test him now?? Go back to bed.
Bye Felicia!




From you: And I also never said people who aren’t sick shouldn’t get tested or treatment at urgent care or the doctors.

Perhaps the above was a typo but reading it in conjunction with the below, where you call people who aren’t sick and are getting tested morons, it does look like you are contradicting yourself.

Also from you: Further proving my point that morons who aren’t sick and just want to know are taking up resources for those who need to be seen by doctors

In the above you Re assuming they just want to know — but my point is that perhaps they were exposed and want to know for a reason. Like telling those who were in contact with themselves

And you also wrote: As a nurse and student she needs a negative test from one that is not rapid. This is not breaking news.

Right. Other people in other professions and who are also students also need PCR results if they test positive and need to be out or need a negative to be able to go to class or to work. No different than your friend. So maybe stop assuming almost everyone is a paranoid moron.

I addressed your specific complaints, based on your assumptions that people were clogging up doctors offices and urgent cares for no reason. Maybe because you are in NJ it is different but in NYC it is VERY hard to get tested, lots of likes, inaccurate info about test center locations and times. So people who need to be tested go where they can. Yes I am sure some are being inconsiderate jerks but some- who do not appear sick- have good reason.

I am used to your nastiness so carry on— because I know you will. And I AM sorry your son became symptomatic and I hope he feels better soon. IMO you had every right to wait wherever you were to get tested if he was exposed. There is a big difference between your situation and people who fill those centers because they wanna go to a party.

Covid at home test kits

I will get a booster once a year, like the flu shot, but not more often than that. However, if people want to get a booster once a month, that is none of my business and I really don't care what they do. I don't know why people care so much about how many boosters some people will get, or why they wear a mask, or how sick they are and whether it was with the vaccine or not. Who the F cares?!?!? When I hear someone has covid I never wonder how many shots they've have or whatever. I think that stinks for them and I hope they get better soon. My case was beyond mild and the only other one to get it was my 8 year old, who is also showing very mild symptoms.
Test, don't test. Vaccinate, don't vaccinate. Go on a cruise, lock your family in your basement. Wear a mask while sealed off in your car or go unmasked in a mosh pit. It's not for me to wonder or care why they make the choices they make. I only have control over myself and the people I gave birth to. I can't worry about anyone else's choices, and thay includes my husband.

Given the fact that I tested positive with delta and have a condition that makes me high risk I am pretty please that covid “kicking my ass” means a fever, nausea, exhaustion and dizziness. It’s a bad flu and I feel really crappy but no ER trip and no hospital for me.

But you just keep on beating that dead horse like only you can??

Sorry I have no empathy for someone who attacked me for no reason by trying to put words in my mouth. Then instead of realizing and admitting she was wrong, she goes on to continue to say it. Then tries to add in how sick she is, like that gives her a pass. She took my post from another thread and presented it wrong on this one. Maybe she should focus on getting better and not stalking my posts. And if she is going to stalk, at least be accurate. She wasn’t too sick to start trouble.

Sorry. Not sorry.

My son has Covid and I’m dealing with my own medical stuff. But I’m not wrongfully attacking anyone and making up things about what people posted.

Doesn’t give me a license to act like an asshole and doesn’t giver her one either.

This is obviously off topic.. but I don’t know, I went for surgery on Wednesday, one of the biggest well known hospitals in NJ and it wasn’t overwhelmed. My grandfather is in the hospital in FL, no craziness going on in his hospital. I wish people would define the #s when they say overwhelm. And provide facts of these overwhelmed hospitals. When I think overwhelmed, I’m thinking 2020 start of pandemic. I keep hearing this blanket statement of “overwhelmed hosptials”, but don’t see where this is happening.

Now, If we get back on topic, doctor offices and testing sites are overwhelmed because of the hysteria of useless testing.



I believe it's the concern that the trend can overwhelm the hospitals fairly quickly.
ETA: I am social with a few doctors and nurses that are in the ER. They are dreading what they feel is coming. One does Urgent Care work as well and she was sharing how overwhelming things have gotten in the last couple of weeks because of increasing CoVid cases and Flu A cases. Now they test first for CoVid and if that is negative - they test for the flu and it's usually one or the other.



Maybe because they have less staff since they fired them also. The ones that were ok to work unvaccinated and praised but now pushed out.



Northwell, the largest health care provider in NY, fired 1400 out of a staff of appx. 76K...less then 2%.
I think those sick and in need of quarantining provide more of a risk to the capability of the staff then those that left due to the vaccine requirement.



Again, I don't know what hospitals are claiming they are overwhelmed.



I just saw Englewood in NJ say their ED is overwhelmed as people are going there for Covid testing.



My friend who is a nurse is so sick, she couldn’t go to urgent care around us because all of them are so over booked with people getting tested due to exposure. She had to go to Newark and is still waiting 5 days for her PCR results because they are so backed up. She also had to wait hours to get antibiotics. It’s really ridiculous. She is actually sick and can’t get help or the results she needs because of the hysterics.

She also said her doctors said the flu is horrible this year, crazy bad strain. She thinks she has the flu because the rapid was negative but she wants to confirm.



Sorry but this post makes no sense. Your friend is sick so she needs to get tested but others who are also sick should not get tested? She add already tested negative but wants yet another test to confirm? If the flu is horrible this year perhaps many of those other people were as sick as she was with that flu? She had to wait hours at the pharmacy for antibiotics? Why— because other folks who are also sick needed antibiotics?

And you just said you took your son to be tested because he was exposed. Yet you are criticizing others trying to be tested due to exposure?



Obviously you struggle with reading comprehension. I said I didn’t take my son to get tested because the lines were long and to get an appointment were insane. And since I saw the madness I didn’t bother, therefore not taking the opportunity from someone who is sick. I know how to read the room and the situation unlike many people in this world.

And I also never said people who aren’t sick shouldn’t get tested or treatment at urgent care or the doctors. Please show where I said that. I actually agreed with naturalmama.

Secondly, my friend took a rapid test which is not the same as a regular test. Duh. As a nurse and student she needs a negative test from one that is not rapid. This is not breaking news. No one ever said all the people who were sick were sick with Covid. I know I never did as I don’t believe everything is Covid. I’m not stupid. If anything I think it is the flu. And AGAIN I never said she waited at the pharmacy for antibiotic, she had to wait to be seen at the urgent care because she is sick and needed antibiotics. Further proving my point that morons who aren’t sick and just want to know are taking up resources for those who need to be seen by doctors. Like my friend and anyone else who is sick. I never said she was special, I was giving an example. Learn to read and stop making sh!t up and questioning things I never said.


What the fuq is your point in any of your questions?

ETA: also by the way when I get my son tested it’s at the CVS drove thru. I don’t take him to the urgent care or wait on long lines. I also never have take an opportunity from someone to see a doctor because my son was getting tested.



My reading is fine…your writing just does not always make sense. You contradict yourself in the above so perhaps my questions were based on trying to understand wtf you are trying to say.

They also stemmed from frustration at the nasty, condescending attitude you and some others on here have. People who were exposed but are “not sick” want to know because they may still be positive and spread it to others. And those others may get “get sick” with symptoms and wind up clogging up more urgent cares, doctors offices, etc. They may also get others sick who will also need resources. What will it take to make you people understand this??

This very thing just happened with several people I know. It ran the gamut from asymptomatic, to mild symptoms, to elderly family members who got really sick from the person they live with would not test— despite being exposed- because THEY were “not sick.”

Some of the “morons” you refer to may also be in need of a test to confirm for work or school…just like your friend. So yes it it not always covid (DUH)… but sometimes it IS and some people are trying to do the right thing by testing I if they were exposed—even if they are not visibly sick— so they can let those who were around them know. But keep calling everyone a moron, hysterical, etc.

And with that, I will go back to bed since covid is currently kicking my and DH’s asses!!!



Prove where I contradicted myself and prove where I didn’t make sense? You posted a bunch a shit that wasn’t anything I said. Even your response had nothing to do with combating what I wrote. No one is talking about testing for work or school.
I was giving a clear example of why over loading the urgent cares is wrong and how it effects other. Learn to read.

I will be nasty because everything you wrote about what I said was completely inaccurate and false. I never said any of it.

Covid is kicking your ass, is that my fault too? Did my nastiness give it to you? What the hell does that have to do with anything? What is your point?

Btw my son became symptomatic, is it ok to test him now?? Go back to bed.
Bye Felicia!




From you: And I also never said people who aren’t sick shouldn’t get tested or treatment at urgent care or the doctors.

Perhaps the above was a typo but reading it in conjunction with the below, where you call people who aren’t sick and are getting tested morons, it does look like you are contradicting yourself.

Also from you: Further proving my point that morons who aren’t sick and just want to know are taking up resources for those who need to be seen by doctors

In the above you Re assuming they just want to know — but my point is that perhaps they were exposed and want to know for a reason. Like telling those who were in contact with themselves

And you also wrote: As a nurse and student she needs a negative test from one that is not rapid. This is not breaking news.

Right. Other people in other professions and who are also students also need PCR results if they test positive and need to be out or need a negative to be able to go to class or to work. No different than your friend. So maybe stop assuming almost everyone is a paranoid moron.

I addressed your specific complaints, based on your assumptions that people were clogging up doctors offices and urgent cares for no reason. Maybe because you are in NJ it is different but in NYC it is VERY hard to get tested, lots of likes, inaccurate info about test center locations and times. So people who need to be tested go where they can. Yes I am sure some are being inconsiderate jerks but some- who do not appear sick- have good reason.

I am used to your nastiness so carry on— because I know you will. And I AM sorry your son became symptomatic and I hope he feels better soon. IMO you had every right to wait wherever you were to get tested if he was exposed. There is a big difference between your situation and people who fill those centers because they wanna go to a party.



People are testing with no valid reason. It’s the main fuking reason why we are in this mess. It’s a fact in the tri state area. We are not making it up. Get over it. I am not making it up! There are morons in this world clogging up urgent cares. Again you are saying a whole bunch of nothing and twisting my words around to fit your weirdo obsessive narrative of me.

In your first line it was a typo and I meant to say “ARE sick” instead ARENT but again this was my response to your stupid rant where you accused me of a bunch of things I didn’t say. You still have not proved sh!t about your original attack on me.

Re: Covid at home test kits

Posted by Naturalmama

I will get a booster once a year, like the flu shot, but not more often than that. However, if people want to get a booster once a month, that is none of my business and I really don't care what they do. I don't know why people care so much about how many boosters some people will get, or why they wear a mask, or how sick they are and whether it was with the vaccine or not. Who the F cares?!?!? When I hear someone has covid I never wonder how many shots they've have or whatever. I think that stinks for them and I hope they get better soon. My case was beyond mild and the only other one to get it was my 8 year old, who is also showing very mild symptoms.
Test, don't test. Vaccinate, don't vaccinate. Go on a cruise, lock your family in your basement. Wear a mask while sealed off in your car or go unmasked in a mosh pit. It's not for me to wonder or care why they make the choices they make. I only have control over myself and the people I gave birth to. I can't worry about anyone else's choices, and thay includes my husband.



Totally. And while I am not proud of my reactions on this thread, I think that is why I snapped! Because I am just so sick of the constant complaining about anything that may help limit spread and name calling of those who do things differently.

It sucks but to me it is temporary and it is in the interest of trying to keep others safe. I do not hoard tests and I do not test needlessly. But I certainly will test if I am told I was exposed and came into contact with others. I do not cower at home afraid to breathe air just because I choose to wear my mask in crowded areas. I go out to eat, concerts and bars but if I find a situation makes me uncomfortable I remove myself from it. It’s how I choose to deal with living in a pandemic.

Others chooses differently. And I understand that.

I am done. I am sorry for my outburst and I hope everyone has a Happy New Year and stays healthy during the next few months.

I agree with you, I don’t care if people want to get 100 boosters. However, I do like to get peoples perspective on when they think it’s too much or if it’s too little. I also like to know the vaccination and/or booster status of a person who is positive to gage symptoms and transmissions. Ex. my cousins husband tested positive and he had the booster about a month ago. It’s interesting to know you can possibly get it so soon after getting the booster. But in the same sense my unvaccinated son has Covid but his recently vaccinated cousins didn’t get it. Again shows more data about the vaccine. I just don’t think it has to be a fight or nastiness when having the discussion.

The lack of empathy is astounding. Speaks volumes of some folks character.



Hmm I guess you missed me saying I am sorry to hear.

Sounds like you have no answer to me about people getting sick as a dog with the vaccine.



Yes I do. Thank God they got the vaccine or they could be hospitalized or worse.
