Agree! The mornings are my hardest. Thank you for saying what your Dr told you. That gives me a lot of comfort. I really needed to hear that today. 

He's been in business 40 years and I've never heard a bad thing said about him, even making a list of the top physicians in Atlanta. He would not tell me that if he didn't really believe it.

Hello everyone just reaching out to say stay safe out there if you have to go out.  I cannot go to work since I live in NY and we are currently under quarantine.  I have been strangely okay but I have been putting on my walking shoes and just walking for at least an hour every day.  It seems to help.  If you can see if it helps.  I can’t go to therapy so I am just letting my body work instead.  Stay safe everyone.

A CNN page said that people should seek out information on how to protect themselves and others but not overdo reading or watching the news (ironic thing for them to say), which, I'm guilty of. I keep hoping and praying for good news, but there's been so little.

I live in Baltimore and am at work now. The governor said today all non-essential businesses needed to close by 5PM today EST.  My work is considered essential, so I will still continue to work. Work helps me forget about the Coronavirus.

Hi. Glad you found your way here. This forun has gotten me through some rough times. I have always had high anxiety but mine turned to health after losing a close friend. I love your news fasting! I need to do that as well.. I never watch the news but I'm bingeing on news articles. I need to stop. I do believe that helps to clear out minds. Big hugs.

Same. Allergies and all. I’m getting a cough and can hear congestion in my chest. Sometimes I have a wheeze. This has consumed me and I am falling down a rabbit hole.

The other night I was at a restaurant waiting for carryout, when I saw a woman, probably in her 60's. She had a scarf over her face. First of all, covering your face with a scarf, mask, etc., does nothing except if you have the virus and you are trying to keep others from getting it. She came near me and said we are all doomed and going to die. I said to her not likely and if I were you, I would stop watching the news. She then walked away and suddenly let out a scream. I turned around and she said she had a bad leg and it suddenly hurt her. I have seen her there before and she seemed a bit off. At this place, they have curbside pickup. I saw a woman drive up and she had instructed the people to open her trunk, which she had opened, and put the food in the car and close the trunk. However, she still had to sign the credit card receipt, which to me defeated the whole purpose of not touching the restaurant personnel or the food. It made no sense to me.

I thought most restaurants were closed now. Maybe it's just dine-in places. Don't know for sure. Trump's remarks that he will "reopen America" made me feel worse. 😣

I'm afraid this won't end for a long time and until many are dead. Everyone keeps telling me how people are ignoring it. People I know are locked down, but apparently that's not true everywhere.

so much for hoping we will follow in the not to long shadow of Korea and china. Their numbers are improving so I would hope the light is at the end of the tunnel down the line considering we are behind them and they are ahead of us

I’m stressed to the MAX! The numbers of deaths are terrifying me and my boyfriend works in the hospital so that makes it worse. He’s been tested once and came out negative but obviously that doesn’t mean he can’t still get it. I’m so scared! 😭

I am beyond stressed and scared. I’m sick right now with what I am assuming is allergies and sinus issues.
