I’ll be honest. This was about as much of a gut punch as I needed today.
I’ve done everything I’ve been told to do. Stayed home for over 102 days. Didn’t travel. Been out only a handful of times when I was assured I wouldn’t come in contact with another human. Worn the mask.
Yet the governor decided to open the economy back up. And I get it. It was a gamble, a misguided hope that sunlight/warmth would offset the spread of the virus. So the economy started to open back up and then… people decided it was over. Stopped social distancing. Stopped wearing masks.
And here we are. Back at @*#&! square one because they were in a hurry to get back to normal during a pandemic with no vaccine in sight. They gambled, and we lost.
Now I’m stuck with no end in sight for the foreseeable future. When I started my daily updates, I had no idea I’d be doing it for so long – with no end in sight.
I am resilient. I know it. I just need to vent out this pressure. Readjust. Find something to help me keep my balance. And one day, we’ll hug and hold hands and share wine glasses again (maybe). One day.
