Hunkering down

Like most of us these days I am concerned about Corona Virus. You would have to have your head stuck in the sad to not be aware of the danger around us. Since my husband and I are in the vulnerable group we do have to be careful.

I think this is the first time in my life where I have felt anxious about being at risk. When we are young we think nothing can hurt us. As we grow older we can see the pit falls that could harm us but to some degree feel they happen to other people.

The thought of being quarantined in the house for weeks is daunting. I am an extrovert and enjoy people. I will miss my interactions with others but I will manage. When I think about it I can feel my anxiety pulling at me and I am holding fast to my ways to avoid any problems. If one of us get the virus then I will be panicked so we will hold the fort at  home as much as possible.

I have written about this happening before so I am not surprised that it is happening. After the two other viruses (Mers and Sars) it was like waiting for the other shoe to drop. Thank God, although serious enough, it is not more serious than it is. I pray we don’t have another anytime soon.

  1. I hope you will avoid getting ill and that you will not find your isolation too daunting! At least there is social media. We have not seen any confirmed cases here yet and most of us should be able to avoid contact with others for a while. My biggest concern is the number of idiots this virus has brought to the surface in Saskatchewan. Our supermarkets have been a madhouse for days on end now. People would trample their own mother for a package of toilet paper. That is scary stuff especially when you have family working in those places.
