    Went to the grocery store today - All are required to wear a mask -
    a mask recommended by my wife who is in the heath field.
    so I wore one - well - that mask started to cause me to have trouble breathing.
    Then I got dizzy.

    Has anyone else had their mask give them similar problems?

    Breathing in has been fine for me. It’s the hot air I breathe out that I don’t like. And it can fog up my glasses.

    Some masks can inhibit your air intake. Either get a less restrictive mask or give yourself time to adjust to the the one you are wearing before you becin walking and move slowly and deliberately.

    I have my milk, butter and cream delivered from a local dairy farm, yesterday, I went to the egg machine at a local poultry farm. It was the first time I have been there and did not manage to negociate it too well. I got a dozen eggs OK but got a steak and ale pie instead of an apple pie. Had the pie for lunch and was not disappointed. This evening We had and online order delivered from Tesco for the rest of our groceries. I usually make all my own bread but the supermarkets rarely have flour in stock. The shortage is because during lockdown many more people are baking. There is no shortage of flour as the mills are working 24/7, but the packing industry does not have the capacity to pack more. However there are a number of smaller outlets that sell local flour icluding a coffee shop, a pub that has granched out into groveries as tyhey are not allowed to open. They only allow one customer in at a time. A farm shop, and of course the egg machine.

    Masks can cause medical problems. They are not intended for everyday. They are not needed where there is social distancing already. At one point Fauci said not to wear them.

    It helps to make faces at people while wearing the mask. Takes your mind off the discomfort.

    Its common. You are required by OSHA to pass a physical to wear a n95 or higher. Lots of people fail the breathing test and cant wear one.

    All of this is documented on the internet if one has time to find and link it.

    Some are noting the Satanic ploy to mask the image of God. Also, Islam in their abuse of women masks them at all times, hiding the image of God in Satanic jealousy.

    OSHA doesn’t require a physical, but it does require a fit test to insure that the mask is doing its intended purpose.

    My wife made us a few home-made masks early in the quarantine. I found that the n95 masks were easier to breath through than the home-made ones she made. N95’s are rather tight and leave a mark on your face. And I had to shave off my beard :(

    n95 masks are designed to protect the user from contaminated virus-laden air, filtering ~95% of airborne virus particles.

    Surgical masks are designed to protect those around the person wearing it by trapping aerosolized particles within the mask. They don’t effectively protect from aerosolized virus particles.

    Too many people do not wear their masks properly. I see so many people wearing their masks only over their mouth... or even just hanging around their neck

    I know others will reuse their masks over and over again.
    OSHA general guidelines call for single use of masks.
    During this crisis they have relaxed their standards and allow multiple use.

    Virus particles can remain viable on masks for up to five days.
    Wash all home-made masks in hot water after each use.

    I am required to use an n95 mask at work and to use it 3 times before disposing of it. We use it one day, then paper bag it for a week: then once again on week 2 and again on week 3, before tossing it.

    My feeling is that using a mask more than once is like reusing toilet paper. YUCK!

    I wash my home-made mask every day with the clothes I go to work in. Shoes get left outside. Scrubs and travel clothes, with the mask get washed immediately upon getting home. Then I take a second shower.

    They used to only require a fit test. They now require a physical that includes a pulmonary function test. If you pass that, then a fit test. I know because I have a current certification for p100. N-95 is the same . They sent me all the new regs last year.

    Hummmm, I never got one.

    Did some research ....from an OSHA website:

    Question 1: Is every employee required to have a pulmonary function test? Our employees would be wearing either an N-95 respirator or a loose-fitting powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR).

    Response: No. Neither the Respirator Standard, 1910.134, nor the HAZWOPER Standard, 1910.120, requires a pulmonary function test. However the physician or other licensed health care professional (PLHCP) may require a pulmonary function test as part of the medical evaluation along with any follow-up exams he/she may deem necessary.

    Your information may be more up to date however.

    Okay here’s a more up to date OSHA requirement

    1910.134(e)
    Medical evaluation. Using a respirator may place a physiological burden on employees that varies with the type of respirator worn, the job and workplace conditions in which the respirator is used, and the medical status of the employee. Accordingly, this paragraph specifies the minimum requirements for medical evaluation that employers must implement to determine the employee's ability to use a respirator.
    1910.134(e)(1)
    General. The employer shall provide a medical evaluation to determine the employee's ability to use a respirator, before the employee is fit tested or required to use the respirator in the workplace. The employer may discontinue an employee's medical evaluations when the employee is no longer required to use a respirator.

    Do any of you have info on the medical dangers of masks?

    Satan has emetity against the woman and wants especially to cover her image of God.

    Taiwan used N95 masks to escape this pandemic. Their Vice-President is an American educated health expert/medical doctor. The USA does not have the industrial capability to manufacture sufficient N95 masks at this time. The Chinese Communist Party calculated on this American weakness.

    Question, cmg: Are you saying that when doctors and nurses are wearing a mask while doing surgery that they are doing the work of Satan?

    No. They only wear them for medical work. I am saying that covering the image of God is the work of Satan. In Los Angeles, they are required to wear them outside until further notice. And then there are a lot of Karens who become upset if you don't wear one in the drug store while buying a tube of toothpaste. Of course, in hardcore Islam, women have to cover their faces all the time because Satan has reduced women to property.

    Masks at the outset would have provided protection and kept the lid on this Pandora's box but once the lid was opened, masks become questionable as long as a distance is maintained. There are medical problems associated with masks, also. Google seems to have buried that information for the time being. Google is not allowing anything that contradicts WHO, which is a lot.

    Genesis 3:15 (KJV) And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

    So you would not have a problem with anyone wearing a mask if only doing so while shopping, then. Correct?

    I care little about what others do or don't do. I follow this elderly hippie on YouTube and she is vehement that the government should do something about people not wearing masks--kinda of surprising for a hippie who wore nothing at Woodstock, huh? I think that at this point in the pandemic, wearing a mask should be up to the individual. I saw today that Arizona went back to normal a couple of days ago. Of course, someone else pointed out that California hasn't been normal for 20 years so I don't know when they will return to normal. In Canada, they can't get haircuts yet but I was able to get a haircut last Wednesday. Canada has a fairly low rate of infection and I should think that in places like the Yukon Territory they would be okay to get a haircut. I am disgusted with the slowness of Indiana because of the sickness in Indianapolis. I think that they should lockdown Indianapolis and let the rest of the state go back to normal. Rich people have a lower rate of infection.

    Okay. Good to know. I wasn't sure as you appeared to keep mentioning wearing a mask as following the devil's lead or something.

    Not the devil's lead but the devil's design to attack man who is made in the image of God. Satan especially hates women because it is the seed of the woman that defeated Satan once and for all after he lost the war in Heaven and was cast out of Heaven. Now it is clear that a woman has caused Satan to be certain that his fate is to be locked up in Hell for eternity at the end of time.
