There is one thing, today, that touches (or is about to touch) any and every one of us.
With the word pandemic being out now, covid-19 is our common enemy, as human beings. I must admit, I feel lucky. We have fewer declared cases confirmed than I have fingers, in Québec so far.
But I know that it only takes a handful of idiots to make that number rise overnight. And God knows how many of these are walking around freely.
Most people I know are either hysterical or in complete denial. I try to find the very fine line in between. I know I don’t have much to fear, at the moment. But I want to be somewhat prepared, if things get out of control.
I am grateful today, that Chéri got his sarcoidosis diagnostic last summer. It gave us just enough time to get used to the increased risks for his health, and to make new habits to protect him from all the colds he used to catch.
Hey! We went to Australia and made the trip back without a single sneeze. Even Tom Hanks couldn’t!!
With stores running out of toilet paper and the obvious face masks and hand sanitizers, it got me thinking. What if? What if covid-19 hit Canada big time?
I’m not working to turn our apartment into a bunker, but I did start to pack up on canned goods. Just in case. I didn’t tell anyone, except Chéri, of course. I want to be able to lock ourselves in the comfort of our little nest, if things take a turn for the worst.
How about you? How are things with this coronavirus in your corner of the world? Is it still safe, or do you have to be cautious? Are you doing anything to protect yourself?
Let’s just hope that we’ll all get past through these difficult times safe and sound.
Remember, cough in your elbow and get checked if you are feverish!
