Covid may be messing with my DRG Trial

It's like a lot of things that have degraded so much since I was a kid in the (gulp) fifties. It was truly a different world. My doctor back then had his own practice down the street on the 2nd story of his big old Victorian house (can you imagine) and I walked to my appointments sometimes. One time I was out running through a field with a friend and snagged my hand on barbed wire and ripped a small hole in it. I walked all the way (must have been 2 or 3 miles at least) to his house. He dropped whatever he was doing and sewed me up. Boy what a different era that was!

You can certainly see the difference with healthcare through the years. People had a different mentality. More people back then worked together and helped each another unlike today. For instance, I was upset yesterday with the local grocery store. My husband and I are very cautious about the coronavirus so we always wear masks, follow social distancing, and go at opening times to avoid crowds. We want to protect ourselves AND other people regardless of who they are. We certainly don’t want to be responsible for causing people harm to possibly die from the coronavirus. Yesterday at checkout a male in his 30s came right up to us with no mask holding a few groceries. My husband let him go ahead of us to make his purchase and kindly reminded him to wear a mask because it became mandatory the day before. Needless to say, he did not care. How rude! I can understand for himself but what about protecting others? The grocery store said they could not do anything about enforcing the rules in their stores. I was surprised when the chain sends emails to me explaining their measures in making their stores safer. What happened to “we are all in this together” slogan? I called corporate and complained. I was told they would look into the matter.

@jesfactsmon Just reading your post I also remember the 50,s our Dr was right next door to the playground I use to go to and would stop in just to say Hi He always had the time for kids and adults then now you don't dare do that . Good memories Hank
