My best friend is a confirmed introvert. The only change to her daily lifestyle is that she no longer cares for her grandkids two days a week. Otherwise, she has barely noticed. When it is over, she might not notice there were financial problems in the world around her because she mainly shops at Wal-Mart and Costco, and eats at Applebees and Chiles.

I am the opposite, it's a wonder we are friends. I rarely shop at the two stores mentioned above or eat at chain restaurants. My weekly calendar used to include 2 days volunteer service, 2 nightly meetings and one health group, intentionally spaced to give me a total of 2 days to do nothing -- but could meet a friend, eat out, go to a movie.

Neither of us have any underlying conditions other than age. Neither of us spend much time being worried or fearful.

Given this scenerio, doesn't it make sense that I am more eager to see my world be 'opened up', with restrictions of course.

I am more of an introvert. I miss being able to go to the gym every day and I also miss being able to go out and meet friends for lunch (occasionally not every few days). I have a couple of other activities that I do, but so far haven't missed those a lot. I mostly miss being able to just go out spontaneously.

One of the best descriptions I've seen of introverts vs, extroverts is that introverts get recharged by time alone, while extroverts get their energy from being around other people. Both groups generally like others...neither is necessarily asocial. It's just that an introvert (like me) needs some time alone. But I am still missing my social outings that were part of my regular return!

I'm really not a fan of labels, as I can fit and then not fit many of them. Sticking a label on someone assigns, or doesn't assign, extra specific characteristics that may or may not be true.

I can be both an introvert and extrovert. I am an equal opportunity energizer! I like people AND I like to be alone. I'm sure I'm not the only one. I don't feel traumatized by staying home but of course I miss my outings of various types.

I am an introvert. The SIP/SAH is not a burden on me personally. I am happy at home. For me, a huge positive is that my DH is working from home and we are living full time in our country home, which I love. However, I am concerned about the burden on society and how it will affect people’s mental health, physical health, family life, relationships, jobs, economy, etc. I want to see the SIP/SAH orders lifted as soon as reasonably possible for the well-being of our citizens.

I can see the argument.

I was thinking about the argument why adult children are incredulous when grandma or grandpa breaks SIP to go about their social and in-town routine when they are at high risk for Covid-19.

Here is a hypothesis:

If they are 80 and healthy, they have about 5 to 15 years of healthy, unencumbered living ahead. That means SIP for the next two years would take 13 - 40% of their healthy living years away from pursuing their bucket list. Do they want to give up that much of their life in fear? or risk it and live now while they have the health to enjoy it? I was also thinking about cancer patients in remission who have a prognosis of only 5 years to live.

Patti calls me Chatty Tom. However I am perfectly happy to spend lots of time at home alone with Patti.
