I'm in an unusual position in this regard.
You see, I personally don't feel any fear of this virus. I rarely have ever gotten sick in my life or even caught a cold (at least the symptoms of one), my immune system is abnormally strong.
However, I'm currently taking care of my mother who has ALWAYS caught everything every flu season all my life and always has symptoms that are extremely exaggerated compared to what they should be (more intense, lasting for far longer than it should before she recovers etc). And that was when she was young and healthy. Now she is old, and not physically very healthy anyway, plus she smokes... this combination pretty much guarantees that if she catches Covid-19 she's going to die. There really is no chance that she wont. It WILL kill her. There's no doubt.
And since even when/if I catch a virus I usually have no perceivable symptoms... the chances of me giving it to her if I'm exposed is unacceptably high. Because I simply wont know until it is already far too late.
Now, I was on the edge a few years ago. At the point that I couldn't be anywhere near a road without fantasising about walking into traffic. Then my mums partner left and I had to take care of her because she was not in the position to take care of herself. Which is basically meant that "leaving" is no longer an option because I wont leave her in that position.
But if she dies? Well, I have no responsibilities to anyone anymore. So... back to "traffic" I guess.
Regardless, I've been obsessed for the last year about not bringing home the virus to her. Masks, constantly washing hands, minimal interactions in public or with friends. Isolation to an impressive degree... even for me (which pre-Covid was in utter "anti-social b******" territory anyway). I refuse to get my mum sick. She is all I have left and she deserves better than to go out like that.
So no fear for myself, complete fear for my mum. This describes my situation.
On another note. I knew that modern generations were much more fragile than previous generations. But even I am surprised that a mere year has provoked such extreme difficulty for so many people. I've read a lot about significant events in history and 1 year is seriously nothing compared to what entire generations of our ancestors dealt with.
I mean 13 year old Anne Frank was stuck in an attic for 761 days straight and managed to keep it together. You know?
But people with only "restricted freedoms" and internet can't hack it. Seems weird.
