    Not only do I feel like there is not enough of me to spread around family the right way, but I’m anguishing for all those in my profession who are literally working themselves to death. I retired last year and I honestly can’t see me going back as a retired respiratory therapist, should it come to that. I have to be okay with doing what I can, so it’s no so much isolation mind fuck as it is another kind…

    The good news is that I can cook and help my family that way and that I really will focus myself positively… I know that’s gonna kick in any day now… probably after the first week in April when I expect we will all get hit with another health statistic that scare the shit out of all of us.

    I’m gonna make that lawn sign any day now…

    Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      Ah, I can see why you would feel a pull back to work with your skills and all the need but yes, you need to be comfortable with what you can do and try not to feel inadequate. I’m sure your family appreciates all you do for them. Hold each other close, we’ll all get through this.

      My son does the shopping and I do the cooking…he’s still going to work. I hope he stays healthy but I will do what needs to be done if he should come down sick. I hope it doesn’t come to that.

    I take care of 3 office buildings. My job is usually all cortisol and adrenaline, and that was before the pandemic.

      That’s working too hard…three!! Damn. I hope you get some well earned rest this week end. I’ve lived on that adrenaline and cortisol combo before. It’s exhausting! Take care of yourself Joe…take it easy for a few days. *hugs*

    My local union threatened a wildcat strike and my division is staying home four days a week with full pay for the duration, except for management–they have to go in every single day. Maybe it’s a good thing I was passed over for promotion at least four times. Hey! It’s not our fault the state and county stubbornly refused to consider letting anyone work from home for the last 15 years or so, and therefore didn’t have the technology when they needed it.

    My stepdaughter’s still working 40 hours a week at a daycare center that was classified as an “essential pandemic daycare” by the state government. They’re taking care of children of health care workers now, for the most part. My stepson’s laid off from the Hilton and waiting for his unemployment to kick in. Talk about a BIG fan of Bernie right now!

    All of us are asymptomatic, and all of us were exposed to the virus at the beginning for sure. Either we already had the coronavirus or something so similar back in January and February it gave us immunity or we’re just naturally immune.

    Now I’m just waiting for this spring rain to stop so I can go for a walk.
