I agree with Vin that you might find some relief in learning a bit more about how this virus is actually spread and not focusing so much on all of the ways that it could possibly be spread. Taking every conceivable precaution and living in fear really doesn't offer more protection than the few simple steps that we know to be highly effective. I don't know where you are in NY, Vivki, but I am on Long Island where we have 70,000 cases right now. We're packed in and everyone here knows someone by now who has been touched by this virus. I live packed in among many folks who are affected by this, myself included, and still there is much to be happy about. The science is pretty clear now about how this is spread and how it is not spread. Focusing on every conceivable possible negative outcome does not protect a person more than focusing on a few known precautions and then getting on with the business of living and enjoying the day and the people we love.
They've been pretty clear that it's important to disinfect things coming into your home. So that's what I'm doing. I've done my research. I read about the updates every single day, actually. Enough that I'm going to have to take another social media break soon probably because it's just too much seeing bodies piled up like cordwood.
There isn't much to enjoy when I'm completely isolated and can't spend time with the people I love. And what business of living? I'm literally running out the clock here waiting for this to be over. I can't do anything. I can't see anyone. People I know are committing suicide because of the severe depression from the anxiety and isolation and financial crap. And I'm sure as hell not going out just because they decide it's okay to sacrifice people's lives to save the economy.
But anyway, this isn't my blog. I should have stayed out of it.
