Yah… so just like the olden days when I was all upset about some dumb man, I can’t get my mind in a clear enough state to switch over to the fictional realm. It’s too cluttered with stabby bits of reality and what ifs.

  1. The Corona scare is causing anxiety to the point of mass hysteria.

  2. I have found over the past week, when I lay down in bed it is not as easy to drop off to sleep as normal. My normal routine is head hits the pillow and I am out for the count. However, now my mind is buzzing with thoughts of what happened at work and concerns about my family and friends.

    So I have been having milky drinks (not real milk because I don’t do dairy) with a little honey and I lay in bed and imagine paradise. I imagine the whole earth being clean and all people being at peace. I imagine people happy and healthy and without any fear. I let my mind focus in on all things wonderful. So far it is working. I fall asleep with wonderful dreams dancing in my mind.

  3. So many of us are on edge. That feeling of a lack of control is unsettling. It’s certainly exposing the faults with modern society. Let’s hope that it eventually nudges society in a better direction.

    • Yes. It doesn’t help to get new extreme news about what to do and not to do every day. I do hope we don’t return to our former state of relying on cheap imported goods that we constantly toss out instead of fixing.

  5. Try to minimize the news exposure. We just get anxious and it doesn’t helps.

  6. I hear you. I also did laundry, cleaned the bathroom, ate ramen noodles because I wanted something hot and salty, had coffee and watched Silent Witness on Prime. I’m glad I didn’t give up the streaming apps as I had planned on doing. I’m resisting baking cookies because it would only be me eating them. Sure I could freeze them, but they also taste good frozen!🤓😎

  7. Today I watered my plants, emptied the dishwasher, called my brother, did bills, and then quit. I’m too unsettled, and all I want to do is ignore and immerse myself in romance stories and TV/movies. Being productive feels useless, even though I know it isn’t. But I just can’t. I miss my family. I need to hug them, and I can’t. This is hard.

  9. I have had to minimise watching the news as it has been causing me to become anxious. I know we cannot hide from the news as we have to know what is going on. But as from today I am going to have more purpose to my days in isolation and read more blogs like this too.
