Get the flu vaccine this year, even if you don’t normally.

The reasons are because our medical system is overwhelmed and we can’t deal with more sick people. Even if you don’t get sick from the flu, this will reduce the chance of you spreading it.

Also, we don’t know how bad the flu will be this year. So many people didn’t get it last year, that it might come ripping through hard, like RSV is doing now.

Get the covid vaccine too, if you haven’t.

I'm kind of annoyed that "self-care" has become conflated with "treat yourself". Yes, sometimes treating yourself can be an act of self care

But most of prioritizing self care is meeting your core needs. It's telling yourself it's ok to take time to eat a healthy meal or take a shower. It's making sure you put the things you need to be healthy at a higher priority

The whole "self care is luxuries" captialist takeover of an important mental health concept just chaps me

for those at home the reason i use spellings like 'folksx' and 'nonbinarx' is precisely because it riles up people mad about gender-neutral language. so this is kind of like getting jumped by someone wielding a knife but they're holding it handle-first and proceed to stab themselves to death running repeatedly into you
