We want to be counted properly. Two of our household are doctors, we know how important it is for stats to exist and at the moment the stats don't exist.
My household there was some debate about what to put. What does the trans person put down? At least the non-binary person had an option, until it was realized they would be randomly allocated male/female.
I'm a FIFO HCW. Every time there's an outbreak I don't get to go home.
Mate it's not that the kids have no resilience, a big part of it is they aren't hopeful for their futures.
I work in health. Pre-covid I would always work while sick, at least as long until a replacement was available, now with covid the only option is to go off work sick and get a swab. Managers are complaining about us all taking more sick leave. Yet if we dared continue to work without getting a swab that would not only be dangerous, we would be condemned if we later returned a positive.
Some people are flakey because of big things in their life. Some of my friends are super flakey, and it is definitely annoying, but I recognise their flakiness often also causes them distress.
