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

How is everyone doing now that we are part way through spring ? I do always find my mood improves a lot when the weather gets warmer ! 

I am having a bit of a stressful day - a creepy crawler came out of my bathtub drain last night and I have a moderately severe phobia of bugs. I did manage to wash it down the drain and pour bleach after it which is a win for me - this is my first time living alone now so I usually just freaked out while my roommate helped me - but it was hard to sleep knowing it had been here and could come back and I’ve been a bit paranoid about going into the bathroom today

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Kim888  Eeeeeeeee, I’m normally okay with bugs but I am not okay with them coming out of faucets or the idea of them hiding in ‘clean’ areas you’re supposed to be able to let your guard down in.  Haha, I’d have a can of raid nearby for a while ‘just in case;)’ 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Kim888 with warmer temperatures, we will have lizards here in my apartment haha 🤣....I usually use a broom to help me get them out of the window 🦎🦎🧹

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Skunk12puzzola I imagine that’s also not a fun surprise to find! I don’t live somewhere with lizards so I totally associate them with vacation haha but I imagine it’s not fun to see them inside !

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Kim888  Omg when we went to St Barths a lizard was in our hotel room!  I was so excited and was taking soooo many photos of him thinking he was super special, then we went outside and they were EVERYwHERE!!!  My soul was so happy!  The lizards were one of my favourite features of the trip!  

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Kim888 not fun at all 🤣 also, these little, gross creatures are sooooooooo fast and tiny 😤. One second you can see them on the floor and as soon as you start "spanking" them with the broom, they start to run and you will not know where they go. Days later, you find them behind doors, wardrobes etc. It's a "dirty" job keeping them outside. I live in the middle of my city, not in a rural area, but still....we have them, and probably, they enter in people's houses because it's cooler indoors than outside. Last year I cutted the tail of one of the two lizards that were in the house, and that horrible tail was moving on its own 🤬

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Oh my @Skunk12puzzola I would faint!  Ours stay outside for the most part except in the garage sometime. My pup loves them so much and goes after em. Swore he had a baby in his mouth once ( tail?! 😱) and I shrieked at him so badly, poor little man. Lol. I didn’t realize you guys had them too! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Kim888 - The older I get, the less freaked out I get about creepy crawlies.  Flushing down a drain or toilet or sucking them up in my canister vacuum works best for me!  I'm so glad spring is here...especially the time change with longer daylight. 🌷🌳🌻

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Titian06 @Yes I love when it’s light out longer too!!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Oh man guys, same with me about bugs. @Kim888 I can’t sleep knowing there is one around lurking and I even have nightmares about them. Worst. I’ve been this way forever.  So sorry you feel this way too! I’m just not sure how to get over this fear , mine never goes away. 😫 Yes, yay for spring! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Sunnysmom it is stressful! Yeah I’ve been that way since I was a kid too - nothing bad happened though so who knows why ! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Same @Kim888 no traumatizing events! Except the random crickets and spiders that appear. Maybe it’s their speed that freaks me out too! Yuk. Lol. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Oh ugh, I hate bugs, too. Particularly spiders but I even hate catching bugs I know are harmless. @Kim888 . I've been doing ok but work has been crazy busy. I'm looking forward to visiting colleges with my younger son this summer.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@curlychiquita @Hopefully it slows done at work soon! College visits are an exciting time -m! Hopefully he will find something that suits him!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Hopefully it doesn’t come back @Kim888 ! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Kim888 Aww sorry to hear about the bug.  Hopefully it doesn't come back.  Hope your day gets better.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@SportyGirly125 thanks! very minor in the scheme of things but as it goes - it’s not come back so fingers crossed ! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I'm glad things are better for you now, @Mirilu!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Hope everyone had a good weekend and thanksgiving! Glad to see some people south of the border getting boosters and I wish we could see way more first shots getting in arms around the world.

 

On my end, I learned today that my friend was just diagnosed with cancer. I'm worried our hospitals will get slammed right when she needs treatment. This is the third person close to me who's received a cancer diagnosis since the pandemic hit who needed treatment while our hospitals are basically under siege and dealing with a massive backlog of treatments. Thankfully the first two are ok now and in remission but it doesn't seem to stop 😞 I'm worried the stress is just getting to people. She's in her early 30s, no family history, it's really quite a shock. She loves Sephora and I was just putting together a fun little makeup package for her and now I'm like, ugggggg, is this stuff just full of carcinogens T_T Now it's back to putting together a care package full of "wellness" stuff like tumeric milk mix and healthy/easy items to cook when you feel like total crap from chemo. 😞 Thanks for listening and I hope everyone is hanging in there!!!

@pocketvenus I'm sorry to hear about your friend, that sounds very stressful! Hopefully people will get boosters and the hospitals won't get too crazy!
