6:15 – morning as usual, breakfast, cat time
7 – morning Yoga with Kassandra flow
7:45 – one of the ferals who disappeared after the daylight savings shift returned! yay!
8 – hurry to get back on chat…
11-12:30 deal with mom stuff, phone calls, lunch, wonder if I’m sick tired or just “I’m always tired so what else is new” tired
1 – ordered myself the $20 surprise box from Love’s Sweet Arrow (bookstore) as a Good Thing of the Day
2-3:30-ish monitor online faculty meeting/chat simultaneously
3:35 – get call from mom that her pain has worsened, plan for worst case scenario and drive over…
5-6:30 mostly panic over whether or not my mother, grandmother, and I are now infected after visit to ER facility. Contact was limited, mask was worn, hands were cleaned, all clothes was stuffed in a bag for disinfecting upon arriving home
[a lot happened, lots of fears were tapped. I did some rage tweeting.]
8 finally go home. wash wash wash! feed self. try to relax
went to bed around 11 because couldn’t come down from the high of adrenaline for a while
all the emotions today. woke up, waited for pharmacy to open, went for a walk, bought a social distance latte because I needed it (our county is take-out only), back to pharmacy for pickup and supplies for mom (just in case). back home. quick lunch (finally had an appetite), caught last 5 minutes of a meeting, chat with coworkers, another walk, shower and try to relax, call with university therapist because I NEEDED IT.
Going to finish a book and write a review because I need something normal.
Trying to mitigate little panic attacks with deep breathing and podcasts. Every cough feels like a death knoll.
