Do you know what day it is? Me neither. It's gotten to the point that changing clothes and showering is "doing something" nowadays.
Isolation is tough. I wish I had the answers, but I don't. I do know that when I was in the hospital, I was in controlled isolation and it sucked. But after a few weeks, the repetition of daily routine made me forget about time and days. So find a routine, I guess and time will seem to pass faster.
This is a weird time. I should be happy, but I'm not. I'm not sad though, so that's nice. I find myself being happier when those around me are happy. I feel prepared for isolated times, but I don't like seeing or hearing about people getting sick and dying. It is very difficult to look at the positive right now. Look at your life. Look at the people in it. Appreciate the good things you have.
My family is healthy. My writing is doing well. Life is good right now and it is so lame that the world is in catastrophe. I don't care if it sounds selfish. I worked my ass off for that degree. It's okay to appreciate yourself as well. I am sure there is something in your life you can find of which to be proud. This is just a small weekly post. Thanks for reading my words.- Matthew John Meagher
