Question: How do I stay calm during this time?
Answer: Some things are said over and over again because people should do it. Breathe!
This is a scary time and I personally am getting overwhelmed. I’m listening to the news a lot and all I want to do is go home and stay there.
It’s important to allow yourself to feel whatever it is you’re feeling. Are you overwhelmed? That’s O.K. Are you depressed? It’s understandable. Are you happy and excited to face each day? That’s fucked up. Read the room, man.
Try to control things that you can control. Turn off the news when it gets to be too much. Make some food and freeze it for later. Stock up on booze and porn because you may be sheltering in place for a while.
Above all, take care of yourself and others. Whether that means to care for the sick or stay where you are. We truly can do this when we work together.
Most of us are lucky to have the internet so we are never truly cut off from the rest of the world. I’m around if you want to chat, vent, or watch porn. Not porn with a lot of kink to it, though. Like I mentioned, I’m already overwhelmed.
