For once in my life, everyone around me became me.
They became as anxious as I am. As worried about their health as I usually am.
They are afraid of a virus, the same way I have always been anxious of germs and bacteria all around me.
My hypochondria is no longer an exception, but the norm.
I feel okay, knowing everyone finally understands what it’s like to feel this way all the time.
I’m not sure if I should be more anxious, now that this pandemic confirmed my previous worries, or if I should finally take a breath and calm down, knowing I’m not alone in this; my usual thoughts aren’t just mine, they’re everyone’s.
Here comes the fourth week, with more confirmed cases in Germany: 109,329 to be exact.
I went out once this week for a walk with my husband after 2 weeks of being home. It felt like the most precious walk we have ever had together, a literal breath of fresh air; one I will never take for granted again.
I’m still ordering my groceries online, and I finally got hold of some toilet paper. I can’t believe I had to wait 2 weeks to find some. These are crazy times and I really feel myself on the verge of losing my mind.
However, video calls with friends and family keep me sane and once again, I’m grateful to be healthy, just as I have always been, and maybe even a bit more.
Stay home, stay safe, I’d say kisses but even virtually that sounds like a big no at the moment. LOL. Take care ❤
