We have no idea where this whole Covid 19 business is going to take us, and the last few weeks have been difficult in varying degrees. For many people there is the anticipation that things may begin the ease and life begin to get back to normal, but whether you believe that depends on whether you are optimistic or pessimistic. For sure something will have to happen!
For those of us who are older and /or vulnerable, and following advice to remain at home and cocooned, the possibility of being 'let out' is looking more distant. Its been noticeable since the O&O forum started the people have not been too interested in posting problems that arise with age, but these are exceptional times and maybe people might like to share their thoughts - its really quite likely that this is one of the strangest situations that most of us have ever been in.
So, how are you coping with the situation? Is it getting you down? What are you doing to deal with it all? Are the practical issues of getting supplies your main consideration, or are you more concerned about missing opportunities to chat with friends and family?
My own situation is really not so far causing me too much hassle, though I do have some medical issues that have slowed me down to an extent that I would not be doing my more usual dashing around, even if it were possible. How long that will last I am not sure. I am very fortunate that I have a garden to potter in and plenty of projects that only require the will and energy to do them, so I have no excuse for being bored.
What is your story? How are you coping? Feel free to share your experience, hopes, aggravations and anything else that comes to mind in these really strange and challenging times.
