People this Carona stuff got to me today.  I wrote this when I was, as my mom would say, “lower than a snake’s front belt buckle.”

Oh Carona

You were created. Your creation fuels fear.
The powers that be want some of us out of here.
My stomach is in knots. Confined in my home.
The anger I feel knows I’m not alone.
The TV and radio  infiltrating my head 
Wondering and thinking. “Better off dead.”
We cannot touch each other. I feel so alone.
C’mon carona. Throw me a bone.
Motivation is loosing steam. 
I keep hoping this all is a dream.
But it’s not. 
It’s way too mean.

Don’t worry, I have my mental health in check.  My man Steve helps me with that.  It is amazing what a hug can do.  Which brings me to  the realization that some of you may not have someone to hug right now, and you may feel even more isolated with this quarantine.  I am so sorry. Please accept a cyber 🤗 hug from me.  I have been where you are and the best recommendation is to reach out to others by phone or electronically.  It has its problems but social media to the rescue.  I know it isn’t the same as human touch, but it is better than shutting yourself off from all of us.  

If you want to, please share helpful tips on dealing with Carona and its affects.  What are you doing to find any sense of peace, love and happiness?  ☮️ ❤️😃

    Staying away from negative people and more often than not, being able to spot them a mile away. Knowing who understands my struggle with everything happening; because no ones ever seen it. They think it won’t happen to them. “they’re healthy, they tell me, so one person won’t hurt.”
    But that one person doesn’t drive. They take public transportation with several other people. Person arrives in the house, they don’t socially distance. Snuggles on the couch, as “friends” Person goes home.

    How will somebody feel if their decision ultimately makes someone ill and they die? How does that feel?

    That’s what I’m struggling with. And that’s where the delete button comes in handy.

      Oh Ali, I am sorry that people can be so darn insensitive. As a fellow woman on wheels, I feel your pain.
      I apologize for the delayed response. I’m new at this blogging 🙂
