Today's post is a little different. I want to give my take on the Coronavirus. I won't sit here and say that this virus doesn't scare me because it does.
Do you ever notice in times like this the world goes into panic mode? Panic buying, panic and overspending, worrying excessively and constantly. I think to get through this pandemic we have to have a level and rational head about things.
Late night Target Run last Sunday
I live in a hurricane state South Carolina so this type of panic isn't all that new to me. I'm used to seeing empty shelves, during the possible threat of hurricane. It can get pretty crazy around here.
Eggs are scarceThankfully there was plenty of food at the grocery when I went on Friday, but there was literally no toilet paper. I have 3 packs of toilet paper because we were running low and I usually buy 2 or 3 packs when they're on sale for my stockpile, not as a panic buy. As you go out and shop, please remember to get groceries and not just toilet paper. You should be nourishing yourself with food to stay healthy.
As for sanitary conditions I'm also confused, we should be washing our hands, and sanitizing our homes etc anyway not just during the threat of illness spreading. I also had to go back to Target on Friday I was in the self check out line and there was this little boy and he was sneezing and coughing not covering his mouth and his mom just stood there and said nothing to him. I'm sure this lady had to notice the displeased looks on many of the customers faces. Thankfully I was at the last lane so I wasn't in the path of him caughing. Once again we should be covering our cough anyway. Another thing, please be aware of your mental health. Anxiety and depression are issues I suffer from, so I'm trying to be aware of my daily feelings.
Like I said this virus does scare me and worry me, but I'm putting my faith in God that we get through this and taking safety and sanitary precautions to prevent the spread of this virus. Everyone please be safe and take care. As always my relationship with my God is my own, I am in no way trying to push my religious beliefs on anyone.
