What's changed?

While inside my home life is not completely normal, but we seem to be coping, everything outside my front door seems to be changing. 

Where I live all the schools are closed. All the churches have stopped services. When I go to the pharmacy they ask that I call ahead, make an appointment and they will bring Bro’s medication out to my car. We really don’t have much in stores to purchase, so most of us are living on the food that we have in storage and doing the best we can at home.

We’ve canceled our trips. 

My brother must have surgery right away. We are simply waiting for the surgeon to call and say “We have a safe place to do the surgery, drive him to “this location”. We have everything packed and we are simply waiting for that call. The doctor says that it can come at any time and we need to respond when it does, so I am sleeping with the phone as well.

We are doing our best to try and not be anxious. You may or may not have noticed I have not been here as much.  While I used to find it safe and comforting here, lately I have been anxious about most things. I feel like Eeyore’s little cloud is following me and something needs to change.

Really I am here looking for comfort and support. I work from home. I hear the panic in the workplace. When the phone rings I don’t know how to feel, will he make it through a surgery and be safe?

  1. I take deep breaths when I get anxious, as you know. It helps me. You have to find something that helps you, if only for a few minutes a day. Maybe writing will help. Hope things get better for you soon.
