Forgive my rage

My daughter, age 31 and all I have, we lost her mom to cancer when she was 10, is now extremely sick from Covid. She is an ICU nurse, and was attacked by a male rabid denier on in her unit while trying to help him. She was in full PPE and still got the virus from him. He forcefully punched her in the breast. And spewed while shouting.
7 days in and got positive test Tuesday.
I have no patience left. I served this country for 8 years and now the enemy is right here, egged on by Trump and Fox News. Attacking my country, and now attacking my daughter just trying to give medical help.
I am fighting like hell to not take my skills, a special set of skills, gubment paid for skills to go honor my oath.
I hate to see the flag, I hate the chanting USA, I hate the GOP. Never will I salute, take my hat off, or honor that God damned song until justice and prison for all these treasonous asses are accomplished. Especially congress, Trump and his minions.
If I lose her, this soldier will go back to soldiering.
This snowflake is now boiling water and about to scald some brain dead Trump zombies.
And Comey thinks Biden should pardon Trump for unity😡🤬😡🤬😡🤬😡🤬.
Benghazi, who ordered the stand done while watching the attack that killed for? Those attackers did not shit and smear it all the building. Our home grown white terrorists did just that in our capital. In GODS name, Pillow Guy! Fuck GOP. Fuck every damn one of them. Jail that 5 foot white Glock Qanon Princess that assisted the attack.
Ok, I am done for now. Thanks for allowing steam from this boiling pot to rise and cool.

132. +1

Many of us, and most without those skills, are at the same place.

I don't care anymore about tRump* voters, their lies, their stupidity, THEIR FUCKING INSURRECTION and attempt to overthrow the United States government. I have a sibling deep in the tRump* cult. I don't care.

I have other immediate family members on the Covid front lines and I am terrified for them.

Whenever I encounter a #Maskhole, it is all I can do to refrain/restrain myself. Be a dumb, science-denying fool all you like, but you have NO RIGHT to hurt others.

Best to you and good, healing vibes to your daughter.

3. Your rage is definitely justified

They just keep hurting people and our country because of their hatred and unfounded anger, spurred on by media and scumbag pols. Now they have hurt your loved one. I feel that kind of anger most days, without anywhere near the kind of justification you have. However you don't want to go to jail, so please reach out to someone who can listen. You can rant anytime on here. You and your daughter have served their country and are appreciated.

9. Thank you

I need to be free to protect her as long as I am alive. And the release of steam keeps this boiler from exploding. 3 brothers and a dad, all trumpers and “Christians”. No reaching out to that. My oldest brother sent me 5 praying hands images. No text, I told him Tots and Pears are useless. Especially if you are praying to Pillow Guys God, or Paula Whites God.
So thank you fine people here on Du for being here to reach out to.
Go out to get food about 3 weeks apart. I stay apart, wash hands and proudly wear my “Shut the F**k up Donny” mask from the Stephanie Miller Show. I wear my old Special Ops Navy hat, with glaring angry eyes, no one says anything for some reason. Thanks for you kind response. She has pre existing lung issues as her mom did, so we are on edge. Not self inflicted. Genetics.

I hope your daughter will get well soon, and have no more of those monsters to put her at risk.

I also hope you will continue to confide in us here at DU. We can offer you a place to vent and think things through.

I'm very grateful that you haven't acted on your highly-justified anger. You are living proof that we are better than they are.

And if Olympics happen amid Covid, we will have to endure that and all the red white and blue garb wearing stars and strips. Now, to me that brings up trumpism.

I would understand if she left nursing after this. This is not one of the requirements of her job, to be attacked and infected. I know some will say he was not in his right mind. I understand that, but he was led into the dark place in his mind.

As we all know, most nurses are brave hero’s. Except the ones like the ass that tried to destroy 500 Viles of Covid Vax. Nuts are everywhere. Even Navy Seals we’re in on attack. That really pisses me off.

I hope she fully recovers soon. No need to ask forgiveness for your rage because you are fully justified. We are in the mist of dealing with what only can be described as an episode of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Instigated by the GOP and their King Turd, we have a mindless, ignorant and hate filled army or morons flexing their muscles and threatening our Democracy. There is definitely reason for rage. Truly wishing your daughter has a speedy recovery.

32. Your rant strikes a chord with all of us. It helps explain why, as 45's departure is imminent, many

of us are experiencing equal parts joy, sadness and rage. Joy that at least the White House will be cleansed, but rage and sadness for what is left and where we are as a country....not to mention the extreme sadness that it didn't have to be this way.
I too have daughters, one a left leaning, exuberant, science teacher. If she experienced what your daughter did I would feel as you do. The thing is, that could happen tomorrow if some delusional student, parent or even co-worker goes off the rails.
We all hope your daughter has a quick recovery and will eventually see a return to "normalcy" during a long and happy lifetime. Many thanks to both of you for your service.

Your anger is absofuckingloutely justified & I am so glad you came to the community here to vent.

Was the maskhole pos charged legally for attacking her? Is she hospitalized?

I share every single sentiment you shared about these useless pieces of shit.

I know you are very angry & afraid for your daughter but, imho, the best thing you can do for her & yourself is to focus on sending her positive thoughts of healing.

Please keep us updated!

45. She is at home

She got sick a few days after her 12 hour night shift. She got the test after 4 days of extreme sickness the day before her next shift. So we did not know he, who was positive, had infected her. Do not know what his status is and probably have to see what hospital will do after her return and if charges are brought. I just go over everyday and take meds and liquids or anything she can possibly eat, and leave it on her porch. We had to euthanize her precious best buddy little dog a month ago After cancer diagnosis. She just adopted two kittens to help from the heartbreaking loss, and those 2 little boys are loving her non stop. Other wise she would be alone in there.
Thank all of you soooo much. All these supportive and kind responses have helped me tremulously and I have shared all the love with her.

Glad she has kitties and you to take her what she needs!

Yale is offering very popular Science of Well Being course free. It is very good stuff & can help you both. Perhaps take it at the same time & discuss?

Objective medical research has shown that journaling (James Pennebaker), reading positive material such as Chicken Soup for the Soul-type books significantly raises immune system. Guessing the Yale course would as well, but have not seen that written anywhere.

43. I'm with you, its time to destroy Trumpism...

This is the time. Destroy everything Trump. Progressives control the swing states and demographic trends. We are 80% of the economy. Enough is enough. Get them all off social media, charge them, boycott everyone who supports them. You can either support America or Trump. Pick one and if you choose Trump, we will destroy you economically and criminally if you step over the line.

They have killed so many and almost destroyed the democracy.

54. I am so upset for your situation. I worry about everyone now, including my daughter who is a Doctor.

She is now working in a large regional hospital with only Covid patients. Works from about 7AM to about 7 PM.
She has a family to worry about. Goes home, has a shower, a sandwich or soup and goes to bed. Off again in the AM to treat more patients.

Thankfully she has not met with the situation that your daughter has. I damn those who take the medical workers for granted. I have not seen my family since last March, that is how hard these people are working. Not only are they exhausted and subject to idiots, they can't even go anywhere. They are being cautious but so many others are not. I bet the no-maskers and other idiots will be demanding help because they are "entitled"!

My thoughts are with you and all other health care providers. We thank you and I wish your daughter well.

61. Thank you

For kindness. Extremely exhausted, days of nausea, chest congestion, out of breath just to stand. Sleeping for 18-20 hours at a time. Body aches all over. Never lost smell or taste. And no real fever. So many have so many different symptoms. That is dangerous, I could not get her to get a test because some of the common symptoms were not exhibited. She HAD to get test before going back to hospital, so it was rushed for results. So we have about a week before we can feel a little confident she is recovering.
Again thank all of you so much. You guys here at DU rock. I was a late 60’s teenager musician before joining NAVY. So I know good Rock. You guys are ALL good Rock. My daughter thanks you. I call her and read these well wishes to her. We are best friends and all each other have. Families are warped and evil. All Christians.GOP style.

Too damn independent for a man in her way. I ruined her, never wanted a relationship after her mom passed, I wanted ti raise her without any distractions. Tried a few but they did not like my 100 percent attention on her. That was a tie breaker for me. So I learned to love my own freedom, with ability to focus on one thing, so she kinda followed my life style.
Plus, I can hike, explore all these mountain trails and no trails with my Black Lab, (number 5) without approval from a wife.
FREEDOM!!!😁

I can understand your rage! Attacking someone who is selflessly trying to help you is the act of an idiot! I’m about to the point of saying that anyone who is in denial that they have Covid and gets angry toward their doctors and nurses should just be sent home without treatment. If they think its a hoax, they should don’t need treatment for something that doesn’t exist.

I still am furious every time I think about the attack on the Capitol last week, so I can well understand how much worse it would be to have an attack by a rabid wing nut on your daughter.

Help the problem much. But, years ago someone said that tears weren't usually sadness...frustration. That stuck with me. Now when I feel sad, I try to figure out what's frustrating me. In this case, what isn't frustrating! A psychopath president who was worse than useless in this crisis. If there was a step to be taken in the wrong direction, he took it. He left the states stranded. While he sabotaged everything, he was rescued daily by his enablers. Somewhere in the million things this cretin did to frustrate medicine, government, laws, decency, truth... somewhere is the frustration point that you can feel you can fight against. A sign in the yard. Joining the local Democratic party...
Strength in numbers. A letter to the editor... your letter to us was pretty darned effective!

My best childhood friends (twins) are--1st is paramedic now swabbing people 8 hours day @ a clinic, and 2nd is ICU nurse. One told me they are experiencing "empathy fatigue " due to the quantity of a%*holes being abusive while "being helped". It enrages me to hear.
They wear all that protective gear too, but their younger sister, also ICU nurse, got covid. With all PPE in place, these HC workers are still risking their lives. Please keep us updated on your daughter.

You are angry and rightfully so. And you are right, we won't have REAL justice until we get results based on facts and using the law as it is supposed to be used, to protect American citizens from hate crimes, sedition and attack by deranged followers of the orange man.

I pray so hard that your daughter not only survives but comes back 110% and thrives.

SHE is on the front lines just as you were, just a different battle zone.

It's so hard to be a parent when we can't reach out and fix whatever is hurting our child.

Or if we can, but shouldn't due to legal and moral considerations.

I somewhat know how you feel. Not exactly, but when I found out when my son was young that his Dad had sexually abused him I wanted to get in a car and go kill the bastard at that exact moment. He's dead now, not by my hand, but by his own. But there are days I would like to dig up his grave, stomp on him and throw him back in.

We had separated and were still fighting about custody because he couldn't stay sober long enough for me to trust him. He'd tried to kill me many years prior which led to separation, but he wanted joint custody and I just couldn't do it. I didn't know he was actually hurting my son. He gave up his parental rights rather than admit what he'd done.

When people hurt our children, they rip at our very souls.

Stay strong. You deserve the justice you seek, just don't go vigilante.

These assholes will get what is coming to them.

120. My god

That is horrible. I hope your son is coping, he was blessed to have such a strong loving mom.
Thank you for your support.
I can’t even hug and console her, breaks my heart.
And all that have lost loved ones, also breaks my heart. Did not have to be.

122. Thanks. Just wanted you to know you aren't alone.

I thought I did ok.

Then he grew up. LOL.

He's drinking the tRump Koolaid.

So now I lose him and his family in a lot of ways.

Maybe someday when the truth is allowed to seep into his brain, he will get it and then it will be like when he turned 25.

He called me up, "Mom, I am so sorry." Out of the blue.

"For what?" I asked.

"For everything I ever did as a kid." He said. Then at my stunned silence, he continued. "Mom, I have 2 of ME. I now know why I drove you crazy sometimes and how hard it is to keep kids safe. I didn't GET IT. I do now."

We laughed and he admitted he had turned into me and was saying "parent stuff" he never thought he would.


Someday. Things may change, but I can't listen to him go on about the "proof" he finds on Newsmax and some crazy woman who is supposedly neutral but peddling tRump lies morning noon and night.

123. Don't give up

Those fools will ruin him like Trump has the lives of so many. Lots of those attackers thought they would walk away free. Like Rhittenhouse, the 28 year old murderer. Like people on death bed before intubation screaming I do not have Covid, it’s a hoax.
When he sees justice and truths, he will come back to reality?

126. That is my every day prayer. Truth, Justice and back to reality. What a concept.

Sometimes I am so sick of tRump, I go find an old Obama speech, just to hear a President talk that cared about the people in this country not just himself.





I bought his book too.


I have to leave my son in God's hands, like I said before. I have a bit of a temper.

He starts spouting and I want to find somewhere to deprogram him... but he's a grown up. He makes his own choices now.

He can live with the consequences too.

119. I'm sorry



Sending good vibes to your daughter and I hope she makes a full recovery. The person that attacked her should be prosecuted for assault. You have every right to be angry. Keep us posted on her condition.

124. This is why I think any belligerent denier patient should be discharged immediately.

Rolled out the front doors of the hospital and left for family.

129. I am horrified; so sorry for this assault on your sweet daughter,

everyday my head spins, and now this occurrence with your daughter.
you are right about F Comey, when he or anyone else speaks of unifying I shudder.
There is no unifying with citizens who identify or dismiss the mob of ass-jerk hillbillies that ransacked the capitol.
There is no conversation to be had with those in our midst who are not shaken or disturbed by recent events and the by-product personalities infiltrated in our communities.

You have my complete sympathies for your rant, and further, my concurrence and outrage.

your daughter is an angel soldier in our midst. I am so sorry this occurred. I am thinking of this outrage as I send my well wishes for a complete recovery soon. This has got to be stopped.

Stay well, friend. I will look for updates...
