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

@eshoe That sounds like a wonderful time! Anything to make a few hours go by 🙂 I'm still working but with a reduced schedule and I'm finding that it's hard to keep track of what day of the week it is! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Ha yeah it was fun and now I’ve been washing my hair twice a day to get it back to normal @MissPuff . Violet and teal somehow made my hair almost black and it’s not the best look for my skin tone. I just want it all to quietly go away, but that’s not how life is, right😉

 

Gotta check up on the parents tomorrow, haven’t talked in a few days. Hope they’ve all decided to lay low for awhile.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe what a fun thing to do with your daughter! I'm sure she's super happy !

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

She was for a day, @Kim888 and now it’s all about washing it out😂

 

How are you!!?! Hugs to you💗🥰

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe I'm okay! The news is scary, so I'm just trying to keep busy inside ! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

That’s so good to hear @Kim888, it will be such a relief when all of this passes.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

That's awesome, @eshoe!  Gold Star Mom Award for being creative AND spending some quality mother-daughter time :).  But hey, no purple hair pics?!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

We took some in-the-prices pics @CookieGirl1, did hers first and then mine was a piece-meal only because I gave my word, so no pics for that process. I sat outside with my mirror and attempted to do the same ombré on my own hair, it was time consuming but gave me something to do for the day! 

I will have to get a photo of us, just for fun. 

How are you doing in the midst of all of this?

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

It SOUNDS like fun, @eshoe.  If I wasn't still working I'd probably be very tempted to try something similar, just for the Hey of it!  I'm doing OK; just feeling a little stifled, I guess, and it makes me realize that there are certain things and activities that I won't take for granted when this whole thing is over.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

That’s a really fun way to spend this time @eshoe  My daughter some times gets an urge for adventurous hair colour but hair like mine is very dark so semi permanent dyes won’t  show on us and no one is gonna get them bleached first. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Ha yes our hair is medium brown so we aren’t getting crazy here @fatimamummy! Although the pics online made it seem like it was going to be a lot more, I’m happy it turned out the way it did. No bleaching here, at least not while in my home 😉

Great mom @eshoe ❣

@ather, I'm an hour into my shift and so far the people I have taken calls from has been really understanding on the extra questions we are having to ask! So glad maybe they are starting to understand.

@Luvstravel  That’s so good to hear!!!

Thanks @fatimamummy I wish everyone was as kind as you! Even before thus happened, I started pulling the saying out "Help me help you"

@CookieGirl1, I love my job and appreciate the thanks, I'm not exhausted yet, but figure after awhile we will all get worn down. I hope everyone keeps their spirits up during this, and I know that will be tough to accomplish ❣

@eshoe, Thanks. I love my job, even after 24 years. This is a serious time we are going through and most people calling completely understand why we are asking these questions and we tell them right away that the units have already been dispatched but we need to ask some additional questions for our personnel's safety. But you know we have those few that aren't so very nice, I'll leave it at that. Thank's for letting me rant. Going to bed after a 12 hour shift and will try to mentally prepare myself for my last two shifts 🙂

@eshoe I had to come home from work today and de stress a...

@eshoe I had to come home from work today and de stress and I wasn't even answering 911 calls today, just dispatching. I'll take calls tomorrow and am not looking forward to it. We have several questions we have to ask everyone, no matter what they need when they need someone to respond. The other day the firemen (who also are EMT'S in our city) walked into a house for a female having medical problems, do you think she could have told our personnel that her husband had the regular flu before every member came inside the house! So asking these questions doesn't delay our dispatches, since I talk and type to the caller while another person dispatches, but some callers get so upset and we just try to tell them it's for our personnel's safety. So here's a pic of our questions. Ok, I think I'm finished ranting, sorry if I went on.....

@Luvstravel  Aww I’m sorry people are getting frustrated. Hopefully today when you are answering calls people will be very patient with you!

@Luvstravel Thanks for the work that you're doing.  I'm sure that you're exhausted by now :(.

@Luvstravel  Your job is so important and you are serving people at this hard time. I wish more people can understand it and be nice.
