      We’re all hijacking the other topics to freak out over the Covid 19 situation. I know I’m guilty. So I figured I’d open a catchall thread. You can support, distract, whine, panic, etc here.

      (end of Natasha’s original post, admin edit below as follows)

      ADMIN NOTICE: As this situation unfurls, it is important to know that there are many unknowns out there about this virus, and as a result, misinformation (both intentional and unintentional) is spreading like wildfire on the internet. Please, if you share information here, do your best due diligence to check it factually to the best of your ability. I am disappointed to say that even some of our leadership are advocating for truly bizarre things (I am thinking of a county commissioner here in the USA that genuinely suggested people breathe in hot air from hair dryers– don’t do this) so, it is more important than ever to check and make sure misinformation does not spread, as sadly, in this situation, it has the ability to do very real harm. Please stay safe and take precautions seriously.
      Additionally, this situation is a world-wide historical event, and it is tense and stressful for many, especially those that have comorbidity with this respiratory virus, and/or are forced to continue to risk exposure due to their jobs. Be respectful of others and understand that based on the information we have in areas where this has hit hardest, fear is a logical and very human response. Please channel your feelings about this to help spread kindness and understanding to those wholes lives are effected (which will probably be nearly all of us before this is over), even in small ways. I will have zero tolerance for unproductive rudeness during this time. Please, folks, let us show each other the good side of our human natures during this time, which is due only to get worse. Thank you for reading.

          Oh we all are, lol! I’m currently at work, which makes me anxious, as I work for elderly people with health issues. I really wish they’d completely isolate, but they don’t follow directions well. At least there are only two other staff members in the house now.

          My husband is also immunocompromised, but he is off at least the next two weeks and has the sense to not leave the house beyond walking the dogs. The dogs are absolutely in heaven and think Coronavirus is the best thing ever. I’m asthmatic, so I should also be home, but that’s all at my boss’s whim at this point. I really wish Los Angeles would put us into lockdown so we could get this done sooner rather than later, but it doesn’t seem like they are heading that way. So that’s my whine.

            I work in a childcare setting. My fear is that a parent will dose with Tylenol their child “who has a cold” and send them in to contaminate everyone else. Or someone I. Their household will get it and they won’t self-isolate the entire family. I get asthmatic bronchitis in the right conditions with URIs and colds. I think COVID 19 would create the right conditions in my lungs and chest.

              They shut down the building at work and we’ll be working from home until April. So now I have my dogs driving me nuts, asking to be put back under their blanket, to be cuddled, to get up and see the squirrel that just ran passed the window… I should change my business card to Dog Personal Assistant.

              Read my books! Volume 1 and 2 of A Dragon Medley are available now.

                Oh that’s scary! I hope you guys close down soon. I would be panicking! Please take good care of yourself!

                          and now the worst possible news came in, they’ve cancelled/delayed my husband’s surgery due to the damn virus….they don’t want to give a new date, I finally while crying was able to try and get them to schedule a new tentative date not caring if they had to cancel it again and that of course can’t be tried until tomorrow….but we were 9 damn days away and now I’m just sitting here crying my eyes out not sure what that hell to do!

                            I’m so so sorry. I was afraid they Would cancel on your guys. I guess the only consolation is that you won’t have to worry about catching the virus in the hospital. I hope you can manage him with diet and meds and get it done soon but safe! 💜

                              I just know this stupid virus is just going to get worse before it gets better so it’s just probably going to get delayed more and more since people just can’t stay home when they don’t need to be out…we were talking to hubby’s parents about all this only to find out they aren’t staying inside, they’re almost 72 and supposed to be the main caregivers after the now stalled surgery….my parents are being responsible but hubby’s parents are among the many idiots not doing what they are supposed to….
