Friend worries about toxic effect of pandemic – The Denver Post

| Business News Today | abc News

Dear Amy: I am very worried about a former colleague.

I met “Gerry” two years ago when we were part of the same project team.

Gerry was a funny person and was very open about his mental health issues.

After the project ended, we parted ways, but we continued to follow each other on Instagram.

When the pandemic hit, Gerry was talking about the harshness of the lockdowns, and we were sharing different recipes, etc.

Now, with the rise of the Omicron variant, I believe it has completely turned into a black rabbit hole.

On Instagram, she constantly posted photos and linked the usernames of local politicians, calling them Nazis because of the restrictions.

I reached out to Gerry to see if she needed someone to talk to, but got chewed out and called a “privileged bitch”. In addition, there was a flood of insults towards my family, which I will not repeat here.

It’s been a few weeks since, and I stopped following his Instagram account. However, another mutual friend mentioned to me that Gerry’s posts are getting worse – so much worse that she was written off at work for a particularly bad one.

I don’t know if I should reach out again and offer her a friendly shoulder to cry on, or if I should cut my losses and let her sit in the mess she’s creating for herself.

Your advice?
