Hello. Regular poster here, major HA.
> I am double Vaccinated and so is my boyfriend. I stick pretty close to home and I’m pretty careful with my practices. He is more open to being in rooms with a lot of people, and might have even been in one last night with people taking their masks off to eat cake. We have always disagreed on this. He lives in another city and we’ve been planning to have a visit in my city this weekend. But I get very anxious about this Worried that he may have caught it already or will. No time to get a test and of course it can take awhile to show up in the body. I’ve been reading some articles in quality publications about the fact that Covid is going to be here forever and that we will all get it at some point it just depends when according to our practises and we of course May not get it as badly as if we were unvaccinated. This makes sense to me even though it scares me a lot. I live with my elderly father and would never want to give it to him (he is double vaxxed too but 93).
Any thoughts? I really want to see my boyfriend because we only do so every three weeks or so but we disagree on how we approach Covid, but I have also considered ending the relationship because I get so anxious about it (don’t even totally enjoy our time together anymore, soooooo preoccupied and nervous). This would make me extremely sad as I really love the guy.
someone knowledgeable (close to me, they present on Covid regularly) confirmed that it’s here with us forever so to get busy or get busy dying. What to do, what to do :-/
N.B. Don’t want to hear from any conspiracy theorists, anti-vaxxers, negative types, etc.
thank you
I believe I have posted about the same situation awhile back so thank you for your patience.

Could he take an Antigen test? They are like your home pregnancy tests. Nothing to say they are perfect. Better than not testing at all. I have no idea how available they are were he lives. Lot more places are using them. To test people there and then.

The risk will always be out there. Various opinions will always be out there too. Your boyfriend might have his views. You might have your own views. That will always be a tricky one. When it comes to meeting up. As you will want to know what he was doing since you last saw each other. You will be looking for the danger in things he is doing. More to protect yourself. I agree it is better safe that sorry.

Have said before the virus will burn itself out in time. I do agree we all might catch a little something. Then it will have nowhere else to spread to.

Only problem is that I know a friend who works on contact tracing for the government and she talked to one guy who’s already had it three times!!
I’m not sure this thing is ever going away. And then there is the question of the very real possibility of another and stronger virus appearing after this one. Sorry about my doomsday type thinking but as well as having extreme HA I have very bad depression as well (thus negative thinking). :(

Are you not answering your own question by what you are saying? Onviously you have some idea what you think you should do. With all that fear you seem to have. It doesn't see like that is ever going to go away, no matter what anybody says. So then you have a choice of ending the relationship based around your own fears, or accepting some form of testing for your boyfriend. There is no third option. Unless you both lock yourselves away in a room until this is all over with. Which we both know is not plausable.

According to the CDC, the PCR test used to diagnose Covid, is faulty. Too many false positives. Supposed to be a new test coming out in December that will separate Covid from flu.
