Coronavirus has taken over everything. Quite literally.
Yesterday was a friend's birthday so we went over to go sing him a happy birthday and to see him. My bf and I had been mostly just seeing each other and since my boyfriend is still working (he's in the health industry) he has it better than most of us who have to stay home. For me, it's almost normal but I am getting to that point where I want to go out and do things. I want to go to work. I want to make some money. I want to see people, talk to people, and get back into my healthy routine. I still exercise and I am still staying busy but this kind of busy is different then what I want.
Just being in the same room as our friend and his girlfriend felt like a privilege and really it shouldn't feel that way. interaction with other humans is in our DNA. We want to talk to others, be around them, and have a conversation. This quarantine thing is good for some parts of the population but for some people with mental illness or are always on the go, this pause can be damaging. I'm finding ways to keep myself moving. I'm learning Spanish, doing puzzles again, cleaning my room, taking daily walks, watching Netflix, writing in my journal, and etc but, what bothers me is the after-effects of this quarantine.
I can't get my mind off the fact that we're going to be hit hard by this financially. It doesn't matter if we get money from the government or not this is gonna hit a bunch of us hard no matter how we slice it. Some of us have bills to pay, some of us have mouths to feed, and some of us need that social interaction and movement.
Do I think this is blown out of proportion, yes, I do. Do I understand why? In a way yes and in others no. I understand lowering the curve so that we can actually help our citizens who really need it but, doing so for more than a few weeks...well people will lose their minds.
Just think, this technically isn't even the worst that's to come our way in terms of viruses. How will we act when the next big thing comes and its worse than this?
Hopefully, we can think of a better plan because this is out of control.
