The thing is would it give enough protection to allow people to at least return to work? This is important for me personally for more than financial reasons: years ago I was over 350 pounds and one of the reasons I am 100 pounds lighter today is because of both travel and work. Going into Kohl's a few times a week helped me tremendously not only with my physical health but also with my mental health by giving me a sense of purpose. Being in my apartment all day is terrible for both my physical and mental health, and I am afraid of ballooning back up in weight to where it brings on health complications. I am not naive enough to not understand why these measures were taken but also feel there needs to be some way to get people back to work because if I don't succumb to the virus but then die of a heart attack I'd still end up dead. I'm not arguing to say "fuck it" and get rid of all restrictions, just saying a way needs to be found to allow as many people as possible to get back to work.
Im not an expert. I know one guy involved in all this at a pretty high level. My limited knowledge and opinions are based on the many conversations Ive had with him.
My opinion is that we need much much MUCH better testing before any sort of relaunch of the economy is possible. So that If/when cases flare up we can isolate them quickly. Even if everyone wore masks to work it wouldnt stop the virus completely. We need to pretty much destroy it and make sure it stays the fuck out of our country.
As to your personal question all I can say is I hear ya. Ive been a type 1 diabetic since I was a small boy. My entire life has been centered around exercise, nutrition and keeping my friggin sanity in order to buy myself a few more years past my statistical end date. I do know that weight loss/gain has WAY more to do with diet than it does exercise. If you can somehow keep to healthy food you will be fine. I know its hard. All I want to do is eat burgers and fries and wash it down with a vodka right now. But I know where that will lead. To help with the mental side I picked up a guitar. I know a lot of other people who have done something similar (free online courses, hobbies, etc) just to keep their minds occupied.
If you want to discuss further please let me know. Happy to help if I can.
