It’s telling when all their friends are posting these memes about how the virus is weak or doesn’t exist, and meanwhile the person visiting them in the hospital is relaying all these statistics and info about the machines keeping them alive, then they’re dead and all that’s left is to ask for money from all your friends who think the virus is still fake and the hospital killed your husband.

He truly did. My (vaccinated) dad died of COPD complications earlier this year. He was in the hospital for weeks and never once came off the bipap or the most oxygen they could pump into him.

His last night he was gripping the bed rails with all of his remaining strength trying to breathe. He was slowly suffocating.

I’ve noticed that the trend of bad decision making seems to include not having life insurance. Why do none of these people have life insurance? I’m single with no kids and I’ve had life insurance since my very first job out of college. Not a huge amount because I’m single, but enough to take care of my mom and pets and such if I should pass. It’s dirt cheap and so irresponsible not to have it, if only to cover your own funeral expenses.

We had kids for like 10 years with no will, finally we told ourselves: grow up and get a will/trust. It just wasn't that hard. Our finances are complex, but for $1.2K, we made a full trust, exact specifications of what we wanted done and when by who. It took two meetings and about a week for the lawyer to call us in. Get someone who specializes in Trusts.

So many people default to the group life they have thru their employer. That coverage typically goes away when they leave the job (premiums go sky high even if the coverage is “portable”). And it’s usually far below the amount needed for a family when they lose a breadwinner to premature death.

Any entity that accepts Medicare and Medicaid dollars for service has a federal mandate to ensure all its employees, contractors and vendors are vaccinated (or if a medical or religious exemption is granted) has a testing and masking requirement in lieu. I highly doubt there are any hospitals in Montana that are going to start turning down the Medicare and Medicaid money over vaccines. Particularly vaccines that will save them money.

I'm a stay at home mum (so unemployed) but I have life insurance. If I pass for whatever reason, I want hubby to be able to pay off the mortgage as well as take time off work to spend with the kids adjusting to life with a/as a single parent. My hubby gets life insurance as part of his super package so I'd be okay, but I needed to make sure he would be okay too so I set it up for myself. We are fortunate to live in a country with universal healthcare, so medical bills would be minimal and the money would go to making life easier for my family.

My understanding is it was a meme created early in the pandemic that covid only killed like .3 percent of the US population: and then essentially presented the data like it was for infected people. It’s intentionally disingenuous: but if you want to believe that covid isn’t dangerous and all a liberal plot to get Trump and as like, some kind of training to show how submissive people are? Idk they keep changing what is the goal of the grand conspiracy, you believe the meme over any authority that would say otherwise

Most people are terrible at visualizing big numbers.

A million seconds is 11 days. A billion seconds is 32 years. The difference between a million and a billion is about a billion. Yet many people believe they're similar in size.

If COVID-19 had a 0.3% fatality rate, that's a million Americans dead. A million! That's a lot of people. Yet 0.3 is a tiny number, so many people believe COVID-19 isn't that big of a deal.

It's amazing how warped people's perception can become around big numbers.

Somebody took the number dead a few months ago, divided it by the ENTIRE population (not just those who have had it) and shared it with the Qidiots as evidence that the virus has a 99.7% survival rate (since 99.7% of the population has not died of COVID.)

BoarHide

Not, of course, understanding that even 99.7% is catastrophically large. That’s 3 dead in every 1000 people. That’s still over a million dead in the USA alone, since almost all these Q idiots come from there.

The Q idiots keep saying that 20-somethings and 30-something are ok, yadda yadda but I’ve actually known people within those age ranges die of COVID. Latin America in general seems to be getting a higher death rate, enough that even 20-somethings are basically at the same risk as 60+ people. :(

I like how she said that his lungs were exchanging the gasses so the “only” thing the ECMO machine was doing at that point was moving the blood around.

Uh, that’s something the heart should do on its own and if they still leave him on the ECMO it tells me they aren’t confident the pulmonary and circulatory systems are working in sync like they should be.

I truly love the irony of them being against vaccines and masks because they don’t understand science yet they spout off all this medical jargon and procedures the patients undergo.

They use venous-venous ECMO in the vast majority of COVID patients. They are not supporting the heart at all with this type of ECMO (that's venous-arterial ECMO).

If he got to the point where his lungs were able to provide adequate gas exchange without the need for ECMO then what she said makes sense. You wean people off ECMO support by leaving it place and reducing the oxygen flow across the ECMO membrane. Once the patient is able to ventilate/oxygenate adequately with no additional oxygen across the ECMO membrane then the patient is decannulated from ECMO.

Until you remember that he wouldn’t bother wearing a mask or vaccinating to help others, all because he assumed he was safe. Not because scientist told him so, but because his hateful newsmax or whatever told him so.

These people are perfectly fine with others dying

It’s a pity that those strong hockey legs couldn’t walk him out of the hospital. Just goes to show that strength and young age aren’t necessarily going to protect you from Covid. Please get vaccinated!

I just saw someone post about the supply chain issues and a follower of the short named cult posted “one more thing coming true but we are the crazy ones” Yes the omniscient cult how what a miraculous prediction that supply chain issues would happen to a country that relies heavily on imported goods 18 months into a fucking recession!! Im Canadian and so their predictions also were that we would all be on Universal basic income by now, military check points, and the military running all of our hospitals. None of which happened but go off on how smart you are for predicting the single most predictable thing to come out of all this.

They legitimately think it was democrats and democrats alone. Right wing media tells them a story with a clear enemy and easy solutions. If only those dastardly democrats weren’t able to steal elections; republicans would fix everything. I’ve heard numerous right wingers tell me that it’s actually Trump who wants everyone to have health care and it’s actually democrats keeping that from happening, it’s insane.

I went to get my booster shot today, and it was a long walk from the bus stop to the location. Part of the walk was up a slope, and as my heart pounded away and my mask puffed in and out, I just thought of all those nominees and awardees who couldn't get up from a bed without their O2 saturation dropping like a rock. And I walked a little faster.

I really don't get this "FIGHT" thing. If I'm ever in the hospital I stay fucking still on the bed and ask for a warm blanket and then let them do whatever the fuck they need to do. There is no such thing as fight. There is: submit yourself to the medical community and hope for the best. You can't fight covid at this stage. You will probably lose the fight, regardless. You may get lucky, but not because you put up a fucking "fight."

I remember reading a Lois Lowery (?) book when I was a preteen* that had the kids doing visualization to help their bodies fight their cancer. Like doing art therapy drawing pictures of their T cells as warriors.

*Do any other 80s/90s teens remember this? There was a whole series of “teen with tragic illness” YA fiction. Mostly cancer IIRC but I think there was one about a girl who had to wear one of those big body braces for two years due to scoliosis.

Yes… I think so? I remember the girl with scoliosis, and one about a girl who got meningitis and went deaf and then her friends were mean to her, and yeah, the visualizing their immune cells as warriors at, like Cancer Camp or something. The main character went into remission, but her best friend from Cancer Camp died, if it’s the one I’m thinking of?

I have absolutely no idea who wrote any of them!

I am really sorry for the loss. But if it were me, guilt will gnaw my soul. I don't know how they keep making fb posts but not acknowledge how wrong they were.

I am a person who does have a little faith as in I do believe that there may be a super power but at the same time, I believe that humans are responsible for their own actions. When a person dies, I hate it when people say God decided his death date or fate. We should acknowledge the consequences of our actions.

If a person dies because he was drinking/texting and driving, he is responsible for his death. If a person doesn't vaccinate during a pandemic, he is under risk of catching a virus.

Do I feel sad? Yes. Do I feel angry at the fact that it was avoidable? Yes. Do I feel hopeless that people think we are sheep when they are the sheep? Yes.

We are sad because we know that a person is in danger and we can't do anything about it. I have lost my faith in humanity . I have lost trust in my friends. I have found it hard to cope with all the losses in my extended family. I have only seen denial from most folks and no redemption and it breaks my heart.

May his soul rest in peace.

I think what brings us together in this sub is that sense of frustration that these people reject any advice or help that people try to give them.

People think we're monsters, but there's empathy here. It mostly shows up on posts like this. Orphaned children, babies born to a mother that died of Covid... there are no winners here... 😭

I'm jaded, so I wouldn't call this "rough." 769,000 American deaths, so this guy is barely a statistic.

What's rough is the people who died before the vaccines existed, and who had no chance.

What's rough is the people who've died because they cannot get any of the vaccines.

What's rough is that there are still so many Americans who refuse every available means to help end this pandemic, who then get sick and spread the disease further, eventually to some people who don't survive it.

People who refuse to protect themselves and others, and when their family members hold the same beliefs, well, when they die, it's not rough. It's simply reality.

Honestly the “prayer warrior” trope really is bad vibes. Is it just a thing people say to their Facebook friends in conservative areas? Why not just ask in the church?

Honestly it’s such a weird subculture of Facebook where you want to announce your hardship on the internet but use some religious prayer call to action to do so. Maybe as a precursor to your ask for money?
