Understood. I follow the "live in caution but not in fear" principle. But then, I don't have my parents or in-laws living with me.
I see people on both sides of the spectrum, the ultra-careful and the reckless and I feel like I fall somewhere in between. But if it came to my parents, the advice I'd ask them to follow is what you would give me because both of them have Type 2 diabetes.
Just maybe if you were in the very high risk category you might have a different opinion?
Without getting into my medicals I fall into the most at risk category. I also have a 89 year old mother in law living in my house. Put yourself in those shoes and maybe you wouldn't think it is a joking matter?
