Got vaccinated against COVID-19 on April 2021, and I'm STILL germaphobic right now

This is rough because while you do want to be mindful of washing hands and things like that , it can consume you. I empathize with you. What helps me is the fact that if you are afraid of germs , and don’t experience them , your immune system actually weakens . We NEED germs. Our body is made of microbes that keep everything flowing and functioning. The more you isolate yourself from germs , the worse off you are immune wise. Balance is key ❤️ I’m still working on the balance part myself , but knowing this helps me and I hope it helps you !
Just letting you know, the booster for both mRNA vaccines IS available, right now. At least for Kroger Stores and Pharmacies it is
Are they making people wait the 8 months, or is this just for immunocompromised people?
They are recommending people wait 8 months but Isreal is doing 5 to 6 months. The US said they may change the timeline as data comes in. So who knows what they will choose to do.
I guess I'll just assume it'll be sometime before the end of the year for me, then! If it's 5 months, I could get it in September. Something to look forward to, I suppose!
If it's 5 months that will be September for me as well! 🤞🤞
I wish Japan will make booster available for vulnerble people for example my niece.(20 years old,B-cell is not working well,many 20 years old cannot get vaccinated yet.(except her brother)
I don’t believe they are requiring it. I scheduled exactly 5 months from my second shot and I got my appointment secured and everything.
My mom is the same. Pm me and we can talk, and share our struggles together.
Me too! I got my 2nd vaccination on July.(I have PTSD,extra traumatized by this 1.5 years)
I think to act scientifically safe helps you.Ventilate where you live,choose well ventilated place to go,(sometimes I cannot choose,as I live in Tokyo,I have to ride commuter train.but if you can drive a car,or bicycle,it will help)
Not only you,I noticed so many people became so snappy,at least here in Tokyo.It's hard to relax.(I personally use meditation app.but it's not for everyone.It works for me)
I decided wiping is "only for peace of my mind".Way to relax.
I'm also 32 And can't imagine the thought of still living with my parents
