Thanks to everyone for your expressions of sympathy in the death of my husband. My daughter, who tested positive for Covid and was asymptomatic has cleared, and has come down to be with me. j

Remove Trump Now.

I have just used RESISTBOT to contact all my elected officials to demand that Trump immediately be removed from office for inciting treason and terrorist acts. If you are as appalled as am I, Text RESIST to 50409 and it will guide you through the process.

Thank you to DU

for your response to my cry in the night. In between visits to bed, I've talked to my daughter today. She is depressed but still asymptomatic and I hope she continues that way. I don't know why she wanted me to keep her test results under wraps. There is nothing shameful about testing positive unless you're one of those deniers who're determined to go maskless. She has done everything she could in her situation to avoid infection and to avoid infecting others unknowingly.

I have opened up to my closest friend and I'm going to talk to my sister. They are showering me with food, which is good, because I don't feel up to cooking. Another friend sent me comfort food from Panera yesterday.

And then I have all of y'all. Thank you.

I don't know how much more I can take.

My husband died after a surgical procedure on Wednesday and my daughter who was going to come down to be with me just tested positive for Covid. It looks like 2021 is going to be just as mind-numbingly bad as 2020.
