The Countdown to 2023: Is health too much to ask for?

'Tis the season for everyone to be sick! At least that's what it seems like. Everywhere I turn someone is sick or just getting over being sick. I don't know about you, but I feel like this year is one of the worst years for the flu and covid. You can't escape it. I think it's even worse than last year. It could be because there are so many more people out and about this year. Covid isn't as talked about and feared as it was in the beginning or even last year. More people have the "I don't give a f" attitude about it. Even though people don't care, they really should. It's affecting everyone's holidays and everyone's lives. It isn't fair to others if you are sick and are going out in public and spreading it around. If you feel sick then you should stay home or at least have the decency to wear a mask in public (yes, we can still do that to prevent spreading germs). I have been sick this year (fever, cough you name it) and I feel like I am still not 100% recovered, especially when any time you go out you risk catching someone's sickness again. It's a never ending cycle. Anyways, today's column was more of a rant about this cloud of sickness that seems to not want to go away from our lives. I just wish people were more careful when sick. We have to look out for one another (I know, too much to ask for. Caring has gone out the window a long time ago. People seem to only care about themselves nowadays). Negativity and lack of respect for others should be things that we leave behind in 2022. Let's try and make the world a better place in the next year. Let's try and stay as healthy as possible and avoid making others sick if we are sick by staying home and taking care of ourselves. The world can wait for you to get better. What are your thoughts on this wave of sickness going around this season? What do you think is causing it all? Leave a thought in the comments!
