“I am very careful, and hopefully humble in knowing that I don’t know everything about this disease.” Dr. Anthony Fauci said these words on May 13th, 2020 during a virtual Senate hearing.

After more than 50 years in the health field, a pharmacy degree, and two additional advanced degrees from reputable universities, I have come to a place where I honestly don’t know what to believe about the COVID situation.  There are too many “sides.”

Having prayed daily and meditated about all these things, I have concluded that my best approach to life in general – and the COVID morass in particular – is to acknowledge the serious nature of the virus and continue living in the best manner possible. 

If anyone is looking for me, I’m at The Compounder pharmacy Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.

This post originally listed 15 things I’m using to survive in the covid world. I removed all 15.


  • I wear a mask when I’m outside my BUBBLE.
  • I wash my hands and sanitize my environment.
  • I do my best to stay out of everyone’s face.
