Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Things are crazy now. I think we are all trying to stay healthy and maintain sanity as well. I thought I would start this thread so folks can check in and discuss how they're doing. I want all my BIC friends to be okay. I will kick this off with a first post. Take care of yourself lovelies.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@ather  Same.  They’re saying as long as kids were on track with their schoolwork they’ll be bumped to the next grade and plan to give us learning packages.   

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface  That’s good. They said here that all kids automatically passed. But it looks like now it’s online. So crazy. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

This is a great post! @sprocketta I hope that you all stay safe and healthy! 

 

Best,
Zakiya

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Checking in from AZ. It's not too scary over here so far, at least where I live. Stores are pretty depleted on grains, milk, eggs, and meats (and no toilet paper, of course) but there's lots of fresh veggies and fruits available and they seem to restock the other stuff in spurts. Thankfully I'd been going to various stores almost every day since last Friday so we're pretty well stocked. My last day at work was on Tuesday and no idea when I'll be back on. I do home health so it's pretty up in the air right now when I'll be able to do some work again.  Unfortunately, both my boyfriend and I are independent contractors so if we don't see clients we don't get paid. We don't get vacation or sick days and we don't have health insurance so it would be really scary to get sick. We thankfully have some savings but not as much as I would wish for. We might pick up a small side job (working for an apt concierge service) in order to have something during the next couple of weeks. Both of our families are spread out so it's just the two of us here, along with our pup. We have two different couples that we're good friends with so we might have a couple of game nights so that we don't kill our SO's. It sucks because my way to destress is shopping or walking around the mall and both of those things are a no-go right now. I hope everyone is staying safe.

Good luck, @makeitup305!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Checking in from NYC - it's gotten quite scary here tbh - it's very eerie to go outside now and just see everything so empty. My job is transitioning to mainly working from home this week so that's good and I'm lucky to have a roommate I get along well with. Part of me wanted to head to my parents, but I was too afraid of bringing something home. My friends and I have planned a virtual wine night this weekend so we can keep up with each other so I am looking forward to that!

 

I'm just trying to stay positive  - we're getting a lot of different feedback and orders from various sources right now and things seem to be changing everyday so it's hard to keep up. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Kim888  It’s hard.  I can’t even risk seeing my dad right now but I’m hoping he stays stable for the next couple weeks of quarantine.  It’s not worth the risk.  
We had a tester virtual party last night with one of our DJ friends a few couples and tequila shots.  It was a lot more fun than we were expecting!  We plan to make it bigger tonight and are going to push how many people we can get in on it.  :D. Physical distancing doesn’t mean social distancing 😉 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface @Glad to hear your virtual meet up went so well! It’s definitely important to stay connected !!! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Kim888 NYC sounds surreal. I love the idea of a virtual wine night!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

A virtual wine night with friends sounds like a great idea! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I feel lucky to have a nice home to isolate in. My kids are super bored, but we are healthy, and I’m sure with time we will adjust to this new normal. Amazingly enough, the retail store where I work is still open —though of course I am home with my kids— so I’m worried about the safety of my coworkers. It’s not like beads are an essential item.  Well maybe for me they are, but I’m stocked in that department;). 

Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@sprocketta , Thanks for this thread. Thanks for everyone checking in, because even though we are forum friends, I feel we want the best for everyone and I'm truly concerned for those losing jobs. I can say fortunately I'm a fire department dispatcher, so my job is secure. I'm on days off now, but heard they will start taking our temps when we return. I'm sorta glad because we are in a building with about 40 people with our police and sheriff dispatchers, but luckily glass walled between all agencies to keep us sorta health wise confined to our own groups. I definitely worry for our fire personnel who are all EMT's and respond to all of our medical calls in the area and our fire personnel who are paramedics and transport to hospitals. I know this will be a rough and testing time for all, but please stay strong.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Luvstravel that's good that your job will be monitoring people for health issues - I imagine it's definitely hard when you work somewhere that can't comply with the orders to reduce people coming in !

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Pretty not okay. Lost my job due to this uncertainty earlier this week, compromised immune system and I live alone. Crying doesn’t fix anything so I’ve been sleeping a lot. Hope you’re all well xoxo 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@GG84 I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope the government is able to provide relief soon. In Toronto, I know $15 and Fairness is working on strengthening workers' rights at this time and some people are organizing rent strikes for April 1. There has to be flexibility and relief funds at this time or this city is simply not going to work.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@GG84 - I am so sorry to hear you lost your job!  I will keep you in my thoughts.  Here's a (((HUG))) for now!  💖💖💖

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Titian06 

Thank you ❤️ The hits keep coming unfortunately. A family member just diagnosed with stage 3 and needs to start treatment immediately. None of the family can be there with them as hospitals aren’t allowing visitors, an awful time to go through treatment alone. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@GG84 - How awful!  Can the person be on a cell phone or other mobile device?  If so, maybe you can call or text while s/he is getting treated.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@GG84 Send a lots of hugs and prayers to you.  Hang in there!! We will all get through this. Heart

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@GG84  Hugs! Things will get better!!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I'm definitely thinking of you, @GG84! 💓
