So I’m traveling this week… It’s a decision I’ve been wrestling with: Do I risk it? Do I stay home? I’m traveling for work, but I doubt they’d cover the funds if I cancel the trip. I tell myself, I’m going to Knoxville, it’s not a hot zone… but what if?
My greatest source of anxiety stems from the stream of constant updates coming at me while at work. I can escape the news at home (and have since I’ve been off twitter), but the emails are near constant while I’m at work. There are 2(3?) cases reported in Florida (as of the last update I read), none in my area, but there’s a very real threat to my not-in-the-best-of-health parents and grandmother. I’m low-key terrified for them. I don’t want to panic, but FFS this is a mess of a situation.
I’ve never been so anxious about a 4-day trip. What happens if they get sick and I can’t get home? GAH! Anxiety level high!
Fingers crossed and good health to all!
