I'm Sad and Mad At The CoronaVirus

One of my family members, who lives with me and my spouse, is complaining of a sore throat and feeling nauseous. Hopefully nothing serious but now is a stressful time to have any kind of flu or cold symptoms so I'm worried. I really want to just close my eyes and wake up in a few months when (hopefully) the worst has passed--I think I can ultimately accept whatever happens in this nightmare, but the uncertainty and dreadful anticipation is almost more cruel.
ugh, do they have fever ? Do you have enough distance from them ? This Can be difficult

Hello everyone 👋🏻, today the sun came out, and although it was a cool day, I forced my butt out early for a morning walk. I went “by” my sister in law’s, dropped her birthday gift, and some Easter things for my nephew, I walked for about an hour after that. I came home tidied up, ate lunch, and sat on a rocking chair beside my still covered pool for about two hours, and OMG it felt heavenly.😇

I love my husband, I really do, but it felt nice just to sit alone. 😍 However, after coming in, I found out we have declared a state of emergency here in Montreal, we are the hot spot of the country, and sadly my city is recognized in of the 5 with a bad spread in it. I don’t think it changes much, we are really only essential services, I believe the mayor said they may crack down even more on that.

Well, looks like Disneyland is extending their closure until further notice and I’m not happy about it.😢

    I saw that, i think it’s just the safest thing to do.

    Just think, when this is all over, you {a general you}, don’t have to worry about it anymore, and can enjoy Disney, and all things once again. Each day we do, is a day closer.

    I’m having a really bad day. I started with sinus symptoms 6 days ago, and since last night I’ve just felt cruddy. Ear aches, sore throat, congested sinuses, phlegmy throat, swollen glands. No fever, no cough. It’s probably a regular virus, but I’m terrified because we have been home for 16 days now, with only a few trips to the store for supplies. My anxiety is through the roof and it is taking everything in my power not to freak out.

    I’ve gone on three bike rides and one long walk today because the weather was so nice. It helps a lot, and at the very least it wears me out. We are heading into our third week here and it’s getting harder- the worst is seeing and thinking that all of this is not really helping anything. Sigh. One day at a time.

    I hope you feel better, I understand having anxiety. Do you suffer from any allergies at all ? I do, and like yourself have not been out other than walking basically, and have a few of your symptomS. Monitor yourself, hydrate, stay healthy.

    So nice when the weather complies 😀. We had that kind of day yesterday, today was meh, had a small walk anyway. I continue to believe we are doing something by staying home. Medical professionals are out risking their lives for us, I will stay home to hopefully save my family‘s lives and more.

    We are expecting spring rain all week, a lot of it, so that isn’t good for the morale, I keep trying to keep the bigger picture in my head. Like you said, one day at a time. 🙂

    Thank you Mommasita. Your reassurance helps. My upper respiratory stuff seems better today. Now my stomach is wonky. But that could be nerves.

    Hi everyone, you all/we all are doing a great job staying at home. I know it doesn't feel like it's making a difference but it is. Being safe at home is helping reduce those numbers. While we are worried and scared, think how we are doing out part taking care of those that are out taking care of everyone else. Staying home can help protect someone else. We can do this. I know there is no end date but every day is one day closer to being done. Every day, mark another day off the calendar and know you made it and did it and can again. Together we are strong and can do this.

    Now I’m starting to worried at the whole Disney company. I’ve heard they might do budget cuts and I also heard that projects like movies, ride attractions, and etc might be cancelled. And it might be out of business. I hope not.:(

    Started the year with my eldest sibling turning 71 on Jan 3 and dead from lymphoma on Jan 12.

    Virus are never fun but this one is sure sucking 'fun' at large - my idea of fun now is taking a walk. We've vacations scheduled for Fall so we've something to look forward but I have to agree this year has been a negative so far.

    It's going to be OK. Really, it is. :)

    Big companies have budget cuts all the time. They cancel projects all the time. If you went back and looked at the history of the Disney company, you'll find they've cancelled a whole lot of movies and attractions and TV shows and books and merchandise projects over the years. It's just a normal part of doing business.

    If you hear about Disney cancelling things, know that this is how they're protecting the company and keeping it in business. They don't want to spend money making a movie that they're not sure people will want to go see. They're cutting back on spending (all companies are) because they want to be careful about not spending too much money when things are tight. That's just smart business.

    Don't worry. When we're all ready to start traveling and going to the movies again, Disney will still be there.

    I agree with Lynne, and budget cuts are to be expected with what is going on.

    These are definitely not fun or good times, but they will cycle back around, The best we can do, and try to do is stay healthy to enjoy it. 🙂

    My thought is that you have a 50 - -50 chance of getting it. So why worry and do what you want to do. At some point our life will end and we are not in control of that only the man upstairs has that power. You cant stop this virus but you cant stop living your life either.

    living your life at the expense of others is very selfish which got this country into trouble in the first place. time to practice some sense of patience and self-responsibility

    Well, I’m not on that line of thinking, I don’t feel like I’ve stopped living my life, but for the good of everyone, I am doing everything I can, like everything! to protect my family first of course, and doing what is asked of us, to flatten the curve. I see them on the front lines, battling their guts out really, to save lives, some losing their own in the meantime. They are heroes, true and true. If my family can stay home 99.9% of the time, to save anyone, then it is worthy it to me.
    i have buried a mother and stepfather TOGETHER, I have buried a child, a father-in law, a father, all in 2 years, I know the pain of loss, If my small action, yours, anyone else’s will help save “a” life, I am in. I know this is long, there will be many other factors, it’s hard mentally, but I keep telling myself it’s for the greater good.

    Hi All, Chin up, this too shall pass in due time. In the meantime I try not to dwell on every little aspect of this virus. I stopped watching the news a week ago. Everyday I try to connect with someone, either a friend or family member, not living with me, and catch up with them by phone call or text, people I would not really talk to in my " normal busy life". I also try to watch something light and fluffy on tv or firestick everyday, something that will make me laugh. I also have some books I plan on reading. And some small projects I am working on. My point is try not to feed into all that you can not control. Get outside and walk even if its just in your backyard. Fix a good meal , laugh and enjoy life as much as you can. Thank God for life, health and strength, everything else will take care of itself, we can't change the world but you can change yourself, don't allow yourself to slip into depression. We all are in this together, huggsss to you all , and God speed for this thing to be over quickly.
