This article (NY Times Covid deaths over 65) is very sobering for those of us over 65. Although being fully vaccinated is protective as the article says even among the vaccinated many over 65 continue to isolate and not participate in everyday life long after younger folks have returned to work, school, socializing, etc. Although the article doesn't break the over 65 deaths down into age bands or other contributing health conditions, the concern is legitimate for all of us in this age group.
This quote really resonated with me.
"The relentless waves of new threats — a surge of the Delta variant and now the new Omicron variant — have been especially stressful for older Americans, prompting some people to consider tightening restrictions on their lives even more, during a period of life when socializing and staying physically and mentally active is considered essential."
No wonder I am struggling with how to return to a more normal lifestyle.
Have you found a way to move back into a more pre-pandemic lifestyle? What are you doing to help yourself deal with this reality? What do you feel comfortable doing or not doing?
