Haven’t written in a few days. Had a couple rough days in the middle of the week. I think the forced quarantine finally got to me. But I’m back on the mend after a couple tough days. Slept a lot yesterday. Sometimes sleep helps me when the anxiety and depression really hit.
Had neighbors come visit earlier this week. We wore facemasks and chatted. There was four of us in total. Even wearing the masks we made a point of staying several feet away from each other. It felt like a little bit or normalcy in the middle of a pandemic.
Reading quite a bit these days. I had taken some time off a week ago. But I’m back at it. I don’t write much other than my blog. I talk to Mom and Dad usually once a day. I talk to old friends who aren’t on facebook much at least once a week. I have a friend in Omaha where she and her husband are both working from home now. I imagine that will be more of an option for people once this outbreak burns out.
It’s refreshing to see nurses, doctors, cleaning staff, truck drivers, delivery people, etc. get the recognition they have been due. It’s sad it took a major tragedy to get this to happen. Both my parents were medical professionals, so I always knew how tough and stressful their line of work could be.
