Makes me think I ought to try writing something especially worth the reading to leave behind in case I don't make it through this thing.

I've been thinking of writing a short story to end my universe with, and have it sit there in case I do get this and it threatens to take me off.

The last thing I want to do is leave my fans hanging.

Alas, already working on 3 other books. Don't want to think about a 4th unless it writes itself in a day or 2.

The pandemic hasn't changed what I want to write, but it's lowered my productivity. I find myself compulsively checking the news.

I hadn't thought of it before, but our lockdown must be especially challenging to couples in fragile marriages.

Our PM today actually allocated extra money to exactly that.

The one thing I've been wondering though, is if alcohol has the same restrictions and same hoarding as other stuff has been. Idle speculation.

I'd been hearing more sirens recently, especially at night, and assumed it was due to EMS and cops responding to possible infections (there are none so far in my town). Last night they were especially frequent, so I looked at the published police logs over the past few days. About half of the calls related to domestic violence situations, husbands calling cops on wives and vice-versa, with alcohol a common feature.

Someone somewhere mentioned there will be a post-pandemic baby boom around New Years. It's easy to connect those dots. I wonder if there will also a dramatic uptick in divorces.

So the thread topic - lockdown - how are you surviving - mental health addition

Now that we have another month in lock down, at least, it's hard to get motivated. But today is crappy weather so I am going to take a stab at the guestroom which got junked up when we moved everything in there to carpet our bedroom. I have extra bags from the market (can't use your own bags anymore) so I'll bag up the giant pile in the basement for donation so it will be ready whenever Savers reopened.

Yesterday I planted seeds (veggies) and I have more of that to do. I want to lift today because I only did it once this week. I kept saying I'll do it tomorrow.

This site has free craft classes till 4/7, if anyone is interested.

The younger one and I watched a cake decorating video yesterday. I'm going to look for one on felting too. Mom brag - they each won the special department award the past two years (Alice in Wonderland Cake and Unicorn Cake) and the little one was top exhibitor two years in a row as well.

I hope everyone feels good today, physically and mentally, but if you're not say so. Anyway you look at it this sucks. Making the best of it doesn't mean pretending it doesn't.

The problem with being a writer is you often have too much imagination.

That's true.

I'm sitting here with most of the symptoms, but not an active flu. Hard not to assume you have it and are in incubation time. Sister has the flu, but can't get a test. So we cant be sure she doesn't have it. Which preys on the imagination again. But then, I am high risk. And high imagination.
I hope you both get better really quick.

I've been sick for about a month, got the test 8 days ago in Washington state, expecting results in a day or two. Although I hope I'm over most of the symptoms now, I developed terrible anxiety and insomnia during this time that hasn't gone away. And every time I cough, I have a panic attack. I've got a phone appointment tomorrow night with a therapist, but I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever sleep more than 2 to 3 hours a night.
So that's how it is for me.

Sorry to hear this. I hope the test comes back negative--and the cough goes away.

I know exactly what you're going through, Timothy. I hope you both get better soon.
