I had a panicky feeling while I shopped
June 10, 2021 7:58pm CST
We went shopping in El Dorado in Wal Mart. We are no longer required to wear masks. They are not counting us and limiting our presence in the store. Almost no one was wearing a mask, and that includes me. I kept feeling strange and looking for my mask and reaching to pull it up. It was so different not to be wearing one. I know others had anxiety and panic attacks when wearing the masks, so I found my reaction to be rather strange.

@GardenGerty I think it still kind of applies if you look at it that way. My husbad nd is just glad he doesn't have to wear one at work. If they are pushing masks in october, when he goes for his anual, he's going to ask for a telehelth appoitment because the mask is dangerous for him. I'm lucky he hasn't landed in the ER as a result.

I'm wondering if I'm going to be that way when the mask mandate is lifted (which may be next Tuesday!) around here. I suspect I'll still be wearing mine at work for a while since I prepare other people's food, and it just seems like a good idea for a little longer.
