This is not a flounce because I plan to be back but I am done with watching people winding each other up.

Yes CV19 is bad but at some point we have to learn to live with it. That is a fact.

The terror needs to stop. We all got "nudged" too far. At some point, be it now, September or next year, we have to come to peace with the new reality.

I have shielding parents and a shielding son, I have a daughter who is NHS (an ODP) a daughter who works in a supermarket and three kids at school. I get it, I really do. But even my father (with COPD) said that the fear exhibited by young healthy people is disproportionate.

Coming on here is is bad for me and I would suggest, bad for others too. So I'm off.

Night night

Take care.

This is a flounce. I’m assuming you’re an adult so just do what is best for you without announcing it to people you don’t know.

Look after yourself and your family. See you back again when it's all over flowers

But even my father (with COPD) said that the fear exhibited by young healthy people is disproportionate.

Well if your father has spoken, I guess that’s it...🤣

Hopefully having a break helps you.

Perhaps the young healthy people care about older people and all the very many young people with underlying conditions?

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 16-May-20 02:58:57

Totally with you OP. MN is no longer the place I know and love. Ridiculous hysteria (schools, government, going out...)and I’m hiding more threads than I’m leaving up grin.

Take care and maybe see you out the other side.

Yes a good post, and I agree with your mindset 100 %

I mean, this is the biggest flounce ever.

If MN was your homepage then a break is probably advisable!

So this is I’ll just respond to posts occasionally like an average person? Way to go 😂. Great post!

I'm glad you added that you didn't mean to enable voting - it was quite a surprise to see the poll come up when your post was so clear and definite! If being on the site's causing you more upset than support/entertainment, you're quite right to take a break.

ElizabethMainwaring Sat 16-May-20 04:06:56

You say that 'you may comment occasionally, but that's by choice'.
Were you previously forced to engage with MN?

Lynda07 Sat 16-May-20 04:31:42

It's a good idea to have a break. However there is no need to engage with threads that wind you up. We all have a choice.

Take care op!

Dollywilde Sat 16-May-20 04:49:51

Shame OP, I like your contributions. FWIW I agree with you on Covid but finding MN bearable with a bit of reduced time and avoiding the really goady threads. The tone has definitely changed around here since I started posting (2010/11 I think) but that’s natural as the site grows and personally I still get a lot out of it if I don’t overdo my time on here. True of anywhere I guess though, I get ragey if I overdo time on Twitter too.

Hope to see you back soon.

Bye Felicia

Hope your father stays healthy until a vaccine.

EffOrf Sat 16-May-20 05:03:03

Sounds like a good idea, it's all constant capitals now and people shouting 'you murderer' It seems to be turning more and more into Facebook every day

steff13 Sat 16-May-20 05:10:29

PS I may comment occasionally but thats by choice.

Are there people who don't post by choice?

franfine Sat 16-May-20 05:12:06

You've been on MN a long time so I'm glad you'll be back.
