Honestly, based on your comments on APC I think you could really benefit from a therapist. Being able to work through your issues productively and get to a place of inner peace will significantly improve your life. Feeling like a failure every day is not normal, and being able to talk to a therapist would really help give you some perspective.
I've thought about talking to someone, but I would rather not spend the money. I've started working out again and that has been helping me blow off some steam.

I got my vaccine in January and although I didnít have any side effects some of the guys I work with had a rough time with it. Since I have had covid and also now received both doses of my vaccine I wish I could toss these mask in the trash.

Washington Post reporting 1/3 of military members being offered the vaccine are refusing it. According the to article, because the vaccine was developed under emergency use mandates, soldiers can't be ordered to take it.

Is that true?

(Then again, I really don't believe much of what I read anywhere outside of physical books anymore. It is interesting to note the military is gathering data based on "communities". Frankly, if my "community" had been used as literal Guinea pigs under the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, I doubt I'd be very trusting of vaccines developed in a hurry; doubly so if I was young and fit).

In the city I work for at least half the firefighters and cops are declining the vaccine. Which also parallels the cities around us.

He was one of those PFEs that came from Northeast and had a chip on his shoulder about having to work his way up. Complained endlessly about Delta, but was one of the highest paid pilots in the company. Got caught up in the tax scandle in Park City. I will give him this though.. he had a PO Box in Evanston and actually went up there once a week to buy his groceries and get his mail. Great guy on a layover, but a complete d!ck in the cockpit. I think he's the one you are talking about having the flap rules. I watched him do that going into MSO and we couldn't see the runway going straight in because the nose was so high...


Good times.
Thats him, MC were his initials. Always suing or threatening to sue someone.

With exactly one exception the answer is always no other than maybe a token gold purchase. I then ask why they donít believe in what they preach and get a blank stare! The one exception was a SLC CA who lived in a bunker near Reno and immediately converted every pay check completely into gold, silver and ammo. I admired the fact that he actually believed what he preached unlike all the others. He was however still a wack job but fun to fly with!
I use to fly with a conspiracy guy. The final straw, one night at dinner, he told the Polish FA's the holocaust didn't happen. Didn't go over well.
