The World In Which We Live

I hope all is doing well during this health crisis that seems to have affected everyone in some form or fashion. I am an essential employee and have had to come into work. I am not able to work from home. While I am a volunteer firefighter I have not even gone up to the firehouse. Just work and the store if needed.

I can understand the desire to leave the house. I just don’t get people feeling the need to go to a store just to walk around. Walk around your neighborhood. Just go sit outside. There are ways to not feel cooped up without putting yourself and others at risk. I have to many people I love that are immunosupressed that I am very worried about. They range in age from 4 months old to 75 years old.

Sadly, I am also now fighting a UTI and a potential sinus infection. Washing my hands, covering my mouth and nose, using hand sanitzer. I’m doing it all. One thing I am most definitely doing is thanking God and talking with him. He is the reason I wake every morning. He is the reason that I have continued to find my way.

I still struggle. I still fee sad, feel like I have no energy. I still have days where I doubt everything. I keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep trying. My moods swing more easily now, I have noticed. I feel like an ocean as the storm is starting to roll in. As you can already tell it is also effecting my thought process.

Only 5 hours and 45 minutes left to go till I can go home. I feel very tired. Of course that is because I am back on my 7 am to 3 pm shift. Stay well my friends. Take care of yourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. We will get through this!!

Your Royal Purple Queen
