Corona Fatigue-What Day Is It Anyway? March 31, 2020

It is hard to keep track of the days and I find myself looking at my cell phone calendar. News today that San Francisco and Bay Area counties are extending ‘stay at home’ until May 1. The whole State of California will probably follow this soon. My husband and I are having trouble sleeping so fatigue is getting to be a problem. Part of the fatigue is from the undercurrent of tension as well. We lose our tempers much more easily.  So how will we all cope for 1 more month. Our little grandson visited in person from a distance yesterday with his parents. He couldn’t understand why he couldn’t come in the house or come close to us. I am not afraid of infection from him but afraid that we could be carrying it and give it to him. We are planning to get groceries delivered as much as possible. I do wash my hands after handling and putting away the groceries. Our city posted on their website that there is help for people who need it with pick up for grocery and pharmacy.

It is good that we have access to the internet and streaming media so we can read articles, books, watch movies, TV series, documentaries and blog. We can visit virtually with family. I can go out for walks or work in back yard. Have to focus on what we can do.

    Oh, I‘m so sorry you’ll most likely have to stay at home till May 1 at least. Our “intelligent” lockdown (where we’re encouraged to stay home but going outside is not strictly forbidden) was just extended till April 28.

    I feel for your grandson. It must all be so hard particularly on young children. Thankfully my niece is only six-months-old. Then again, this thing gets on my nerves too.

      Well I know this time of isolation may keep fluctuating too but don’t want to dwell on it. We can go outside to walk in the neighborhoods as long as we are not in groups. Hard to figure out how to navigate this with my little grandson but I do not want to upset him. Maybe take walks with him but not getting too close to each other. We all have to figure out how to cope with this don’t we? Thank you, Astrid 🙂

    Focusing on what I can do has been my approach. I feel lucky to have a large, comfortable home and backyard. My fatigue comes from the monotony of the days, though–not boredom, as I’m quite occupied with one thing or another. Did I go to the grocery store yesterday or the day before?

      It is good to have structure and things to do. I am not very structured in my daily routine but I still could structure a little better. Mixing up the days seems to be a shared experience with many of us. An impact of this crisis is disorientation.

    I’m so glad you got to see your family, even from afar. ❤ I think on top of the fear of the obvious, we have so much more stress because we can't be with people we love and we don't know how long it's going to be like this. I'm a person who focuses on bright spots, and I like to put them in my days — anything from 'time to color' or 'coffee with daughter' to 'hike at lake' — things to look forward to. There isn't a lot of that lately.

      I am happy my daughter is here will us and my son and his family are close by. Right now the stress makes me tired but I do like to see the nature in my backyard. It is hard with what is hanging over us. It will be so great when this is over. Thanks, Joey ❤
