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

@LCResz the online teaching is so wild - I've been hearing so much. My mom works in a school as well but they saw it coming and did a lot of prep for transitioning, my cousin also does though in NY and they had like no time to prepare for the switch! Glad you are doing well!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Yeah, we had no prep at my school, but we’re figuring it out. Thank goodness kids today are so tech savvy, they’re adapting better than we teachers!

@LCResz glad things are still going good, but crazy in yo...

@LCResz glad things are still going good, but crazy in your world. Very good to step back and take a look and give thanks for everything that is positive. Take care.

@sprocketta You’re such a dear one ❤️🥰 I work from home as my normal routine but having my son at home due to school closing while I’m working is a big adjustment. 😘 My days mostly seems a lot shorter and faster. The local markets here thanksfully are well stocked with milk, fruits and vegetables. I hope everyone is doing alright. Don’t stress! We will get through this. Sending everyone lots of love ❤️ and hugs.

@blackkitty2014, Thanks for checking in!

@blackkitty2014 glad you're doing okay. Grocery stores by me have many empty shelves so I'm surprised to hear yours is sucked. Hugs to you.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Checking in from NC. Things are very crazy. I went to 5 stores ti find toilet paper on Sunday. I am working from home as I am diabetic and have a compromised immune system. I only started yesterday and already feel isolated. I work in the mortgage industry and things are crazy because everyone is trying to refinance at the lower rate due to the drops in the market. At least I am busy.


I'm staying in touch with friends in Chicago and it sounds very scary there. One friend told me there are 6 confirmed cases down the street from her. My brother-in-law works in a hospital as an OR tech and they have 3 cases at his hospital. My sister and her family are supposed to go to Disney the 1st week in April. They haven't canceled yet and I hope the park stays closed as I am worried about them traveling.


My dog who has separation anxiety is very confused as to why I'm home. I'm going to use this opportunity for more training to cope with that. I I hope it is not too hard on her when I go back to the office, whenever that is.


Looking forward to knowing people are doing okay. You are all in my thoughts.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@sprocketta  So happy you are able to work from home. Stay safe. Give your pup lots of extra cuddles!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Good luck working from home, @sprocketta!

@sprocketta Lack of toilet paper is no joke. I'm down to 8 rolls on my house. Me and my husband ventured out yesterday and that will be the last time because I felt so at risk. Our big Sam's has been out of toilet paper and all the local stores are out. Luckily I snagged an 18 count on Amazon this morning, so I feel better. We have been stocked up with food and have 5 gallon jugs of water delivered monthly, so my only concern was the dang toilet paper. Glad you have your pet to keep you company while you work at home. Take care!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@sprocketta ,

Good idea to start this Thread!  It's so good to hear from you!  I am well, and staying home now, too, with my husband and cat-friends.  We have underlying health risks, too.  My husband has still been going out to do necessary things.  We had a fairly big earthquake (5.7) here yesterday (near the Great Salt Lake) and lots of aftershocks.  Two of the aftershocks (4.4 and 4.6) felt like pretty good earthquakes also.  Layered with the stress and anxiety about Corona, it was creepy at times.  (Plague and earthquakes!?!) The worse part was fear of a bigger earthquake. "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer" (Dune).

For everyone interested, there is a blog by a Canadian scientist that has 4 videos about the Corona Virus situation that he summarizes from reading scientific papers about the Chinese experience and knowledge gained.  It may sound boring but it isn't.  I recommend watching these.    Paulbeckwith dot net. 


Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I'm glad you're well and staying home @tsavorite!  Earthquakes on top of all that is going on right now?!  That's stress inducing for sure!  😞  I'm able to work from home for the time being, and I don't know how your cat-friends are, but mine was REALLY excited the first couple of days, and now he's like, "You're STILL here?"  😉

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

The earthquakes sound scary, @tsavorite.  Stay home and safe!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@tsavorite I am glad you and your family made it through the earthquakes okay. I'll have to check out those videos. It's nice to have our fur babies as comfort.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@tsavorite Sending you lots of hugs. I saw the news about the earthquakes yesterday. Stay safe and healthy. We will get through this.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@blackkitty2014, @sprocketta , @curlychiquita , @mrsmouse !                             

Hugs to all of you!
