Thread: What are you doing for the lock down blues?

  1. #1

    Default What are you doing for the lock down blues?

    It's starting to get to me which I find surprising. Given my pain and mobility issues, I don't get out much. On the other hand, I resent having that choice taken away. Spare me the lecture on safety. I really get it. I'm 71 and my immune system is a bad joke. I don't know what to believe relative to reports. They conflict. I shouldnt care complain about money. The rent and electric are paid and I have food. I am blessed but am slowly turning into a real grouch. The walls in my loft feel like they are closing in. Oh, I live alone. No pets. HELP!!!

    I wish I could help you … or help myself I'm 75, but don't have to deal with too much pain... I'll certainly be glad when this mess is over and I can get to the pain clinic for my back.
    I live in a little condo and can come and go as I please, even now.

    First, listen to the doctors and scientists and not the politicians. COVID-19 is surging in some regions, and it's likely to return in the Fall, even if we get some control over it. Opening up places to stimulate the economy is likely to cause a further surge in the virus.

    My next suggestion is to use whatever device you have to access BT, to find videos, movies, music, documentaries, whatever interests you, on line. Distraction and entertainment are good tools to use during the pandemic. No matter what your interests are, there's bound to be something on line showcasing them.

    I'm fairly sure that most people around the world, who are self-isolating, feel the way you do. No one wants to be told that they can't do whatever they want to do. Even when they can't actually do it anyway. I just went through that with Jim.

    Like me and jingle, you have lived through many traumatic events in our history. But COVID -19 has to be the most stressful for us, because it requires isolation. None of those other events (Vietnam through 9/11 and other wars) precluded us from our freedom to go on about our daily activities. Have pizza delivered. Hug each other.

    You're not alone. We all feel the constraints and fear of COVID-19. We're all searching for toilet paper and masks.

    I won't lecture you. But I will remind you that we are all in this together. You may feel alone, but you are not.

    Sending you positive, healing energy during this very difficult time. Just remember, please, that you are not alone. You have many walking beside you on your journey.

    Love & Light,

    Mom to Jon, 49, and Michael, 32, who were born with an undiagnosed progressive neuromuscular disease and courageous spirits. Our Angel Michael received his wings in 2003. Our Angel Jon received his wings April 2019. April 2020, Jim, the world's most wonderful Dad, joined them. Now, they all watch over me.

    Of course you are right. I have decided that this pity party ends at midnight. I can wallow until then. Lol. I am accustomed to feeling useful by helping neighbors that are less functional than I am. Most of my neighbours are retired nuns in their 80s-90s. They're a feisty bunch but not doing well in solitary. They need their aids. Everyone have a blessed night.

    Some nasty weather early this morning and the electric was down for 13 hours. Everything is up and running for the weekend so all is well.. One of my neighbors tested neg. for covid but positive for the antibodies. In other words mgt. thinks she had it and is now well. They want to test the entire building but they want us to go into solitary off campus for two weeks regardless of the results as we could pick up something in the testing process. I realize we are all hacking and have runny noses but that's the norm in this moldy/mildewy 150 year old building. This is the largest senior community in the state with approx. 1000 residents in the various sub communities. I think I'll put in a comedy and sip on a thick smoothie.. Y'all have a great night.

    LeBieu, thinking about you today.

    How are you doing? Did they let help in yet? Did you get a shower? Some hot pizza?

    It’s been three weeks since we’ve heard from you and I am concerned. Please check in.

    Best thoughts,
