There’s a sort function; on “Comics I follow” and “edit page”.
Heavens, whenever I read People News, I become convinced that humans are d——-
Since I was very able to telework, it turned out to be OK for me. Lots of stress, certainly, but mostly controllable stress.
Oddly, having had to telework a couple years prior due to foot surgery, I was more prepared than most (had a large monitor already).
Additionally, it was hard losing my elderly Angel-cat due to CKD (and dementia), but being home with her meant that I could set up “assisted living” for her in my office. I’m convinced she lived a couple months extra due to this.
And for all those who think cats don’t have emotions or bonds: this.
I’m so sorry you had to go through this, but know at least you could be there for them.
Sleeping in the bubble bath!
Or a jigsaw puzzle.
That’s just a normal human stage of grief processing. Feel it, acknowledge it, and move through it.
I completely agree. I was so shocked I almost jumped out of my seat when I was at an all-hands at which a participant asked the speaker “at what age should young people be made aware of the Holocaust? 20? 25?” Way, way too late by then, because they already think humanity has grown past this. From what I’ve read, at that point in someone’s life, the only way they change their fundamental world-view is through is via trauma. Unfortunately, people tend to take different lessons from trauma, and not always the best ones.
For clarity, this event was around 2017 or 2018, after some Very Bad Bad Person (these are not the words I’d prefer to use) had painted some swastikas in the stairwells at our (govt) workplace. First, our senior boss called us together—and gave us a CO-talking-to about unacceptable behavior that warmed my ex-Navy heart through. Then, they had a Holocaust survivor come speak at an all-hands, and even with my background, it was hard-hitting.
My mother was in the WAVES in WWII, and my father was in the Merchant Marine, so I grew up with the stories. And we had history class that repeated these things, in grade school and junior high (age-appropriately). Then in high school American History class they showed us the movie “Nuit et Brouillard” (Night and Fog) which is graphic in its literal depiction of actual corpses.
OK, sorry folks, end rant.
I got mine as soon as they opened them up to me.
