Oh my gosh. This world has become such an insane place to be a resident of in 2020.

Listen. Let's just be blunt and straight up about it.

IF YOU CAN WEAR A MASK AND WANT TO WEAR A MASK, THEN GO FOR IT.

But did you know that there are numerous valid reasons for people to NOT wear a mask?

Here's just a few of those reasons someone might not be wearing a mask.
ADHD
Agoraphobia
Anxiety
Asthma
Chronic Sinus Issues
Claustrophobia
Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS)
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
Deaf and Hard of Hearing
Depression /other mental health
Deviated Septum
Down Syndrome
Dysautonomia
Emphysema
Epilepsy
Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG)
Hyperhydrosis
Hypoxia
Lung Cancer
Lung Disease and other assorted issues
Multiple Sclerosis
Panic Attack / Panic Disorders
Pleurisy
Post-Partum Anxiety (PPA)
Post-Partum Depression (PPD)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Pulmonary Embolism
Raynaud's Syndrome
Reflex Neurovascular Disorder/disease
Sensory Processing Disorder
Vertigo

So do us a favor, and the next time that you see someone that is not wearing a mask in public, please do not HARASS or BULLY them.

You do NOT know their situation, or their personal, physical, or mental health struggles.

If you want to wear a mask, then that's fine. Go forth and be you. But please do not become a mask bully and make an already difficult situation even worse for someone you don't know.

That is all.
