I have been in my house for 2 weeks. I've eaten EVERYTHING, pizza chips booze ALL OF IT. Yes there are healthier options but I've just been eating everyday like it's my last. It's wonderful, but damn I am getting fat. lol
I'm annoyed by the older, high-risk people I know who refuse to take COVID seriously. They're exactly the kind of people who are likely to have complications or even die if they get the virus. Ex. frail elderly couple in their 80s, he's going to the grocery store daily. Ex. man in his 60s with high blood pressure and diabetes who won't do social distancing and won't listen to anyone who tells him he should since he's convinced he doesn't need to. Even if they don't care about their own risk (which is sad, because I care about them), there's the reality that our health care system can't handle this.
I just googled "having sex in a hazmat suit", and felt totally stupid doing it. Well, well - Turns out it wasn't an original thought at all, far from it.
Strange new world. Turn your fears into kink.
I sent an email to the person I love. I was genuinely concerned, cuz this person is from a part of the world that is very heavily affected. This person has not answered my email. I dont know how to react. Should I be concerned that they don't care as much about me as I do about them, or should I be worried that the worst happened to them? Am i selfish for even wondering that they dont care about me when there is a very real possibility that they could have been hit hard by this, and are going through the hardest time of their life? Confusing times
I'm dead. Not evil just my body has outlived my spirit
I realize how much I drink...
Between BC Cannabis/LIquor/Online casinos I'm sure the govt will be getting more than my fair share the next couple weeks.
I know things, and I know how to do things that I shouldn't because I never had any kind of training for these things. But I know some of my ancestors did.
We’ve been told to stay in, but that it’s okay to go for a walk or cycle as long as we maintain distance from others. So I know a couple of people who are freaking out because they see people out and about. One person is filming outside his place every day, showing people riding bikes or or out walking. He’s angry because he wants to go out to walk his dog, but “these selfish people” (as he calls them) are outside! Apparently he can’t grasp the irony, as he’s standing outside just like they are, often walking their dogs, just like he wants to. People need to get a grip.
I’m usually a pretty positive person. But the facts and science behind COVID-19 don’t paint a good picture. Honestly I don’t see our consumer society returning to its globe-trotting, festival-attending, beer swilling in clubs and restaurants for a year or more. This is a global infection that needs to die down. I can’t wrap my head around how it will all play out, especially south of the border from us, in America and Mexico. I have confidence in Canada and the guidance from the health ministers. But controlling COVID-19 in the USA and Mexico.... again the facts about those two countries makes me very pessimistic. If Canada gets it under control, how can we exist alongside the USA where it will be a catastrophe with 50 states all doing different things? I have moments of shock. I grieve for so many things too many to count. I know we will get to the other side of the tunnel but I’m fucking scared of what will happen before we get there.
I keep dwelling on how one minute I was just trying to survive in this city pre-pandemic, which involved staying afloat and trying to keep it together. And the next minute, I am now realizing how trivial the bulk of my concerns were and how easily that house of cards could come tumbling down.
