    Im so fucking tired of covid

    From an ICU nurses perspective from working in the intensive care setting through the pandemic.

    Im so fucking tired of all you fuck faces that wont wear masks because you dont believe or its my right.

    Ive been the last person so many people have ever seen. Ive pushed a breathing tube down a persons throat just moments after he gasped its not real. Literally.

    Ill sit with you and your loved ones while they get pushed to the brink of death, and many of them will die. Wear a mask and lower the number of people that will die.

    Make my 48 hour work weeks easier.

    Wear a mask.

    Truth. I have several friends (and a special lady friend) that are all nurses (and ER doctors) and they are beyond fucking frustrated.

    My girlfriend mentioned the other day, something like, "you know, pushing a dead body down the hallway never really gets normal." Ugh.

    Thank you for what you do and for the note. I'm not in your profession but I, too, am sick of the deniers. Schweitzer even went so far as to shut down night skiing this weekend (MLK weekend) due to the harassment the night shift crew was getting for telling customers to wear their masks in the rental shop and lift lines. When they posted the note of not being open for night skiing, the bullshit comments were off the hook. People! It's not that hard! Wear your mask!

    Im so fucking tired of covid

    Thanks for all you do. This pandemic has really shown the level of stupidity and selfishness that exists in this country. I knew it was there but not at this level. Its a shame we couldnt come together to battle this together and help people like yourselves not have to deal with such an unbelievable situation.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    One minuscule ray of light in the shittiness that is covid is perhaps the general publics slightly better understanding and appreciation for what intensive care units do and what ICU staff deal with on a daily basis.

    They are the last line of defense and are often the smartest people in health care (and not the highest paid). Their jobs are incredibly tough even when its not a pandemic and even when the public is following recommendations.

    I can only imagine how frustrating it is for them to hear the masks are bullshit / lockdowns are bullshit/ muh rights! shit that is all over the place - including on TGR.

    Thank you for what you are doing. Reasonable people appreciate that wearing a mask and following general precautions is infinitely easier than what you do on a daily basis.

    I had a dream last night that I was at the grocery store and no one was wearing a mask. It totally freaked me out.

    My sentiments exactly. It's really pulled back the veneer on this country and what we see underneath is pretty fucking ugly. I'll never look at my country the same way again. That thought depresses me.

    Thanks mufasa, and remember there are many, many people who appreciate what you and other health care workers are enduring. Must be frustrating as hell. Hang in there. It won't last forever, even though it sometimes seems like it.

    Thanks, I appreciate the kind words.

    I also recognize that were all effected by this in different ways, and lots of different folks are hurting from this.

    My condolences to all of us that have lost people to this, and hope yall in hard times keep on trucking. Do your best to adapt financially and emotionally 🤙🏼

    And wear a damn mask.

    Now we have a whole bunch of entitled folks whove been vaccinated who now are taking trips and doing work travel etc, which they would not have done had they not been given the vaccine. There is a social inequality building here and its gonna get intense.

    Let's be honest, selling $5 night skiing tickets in a gas station isn't going to bring out the *ahem* best people to the mountain... not surprised.

    The craziest thing is working in a hospital and listening to coworkers making excusing for why they aren't going to take it. Fucking maddening.
