So, I am one of the lucky ones you could say with this. My work has made it so that I am working in self-isolation. Now to be clear, I do not feel sick, I have been tested and am negative for the COVID-19 virus, but I am still isolating myself and it is a choice. I may be one of the 97% who will be fine even in getting this virus as I am young and healthy and have a strong immune system. But I am doing this for the elderly, for people’s grandparents and old family members who may not be so lucky.
I cannot believe that you have left us and moved on. The world feels slightly empty now that you are gone. I am so thankful for the chance to have called you a friend and for you to be such an inspiration in my life. I would not have done half the things I did without you.
I’ve told my story before on my mental health. It has been shaky at best at times and I have been through some dark times. I am not proud of what I did in those dark times now, but I live with those and I live with those feelings on a daily basis. It is not easy to deal with, but music has helped especially certain songs in particular.
As I travel to work on my daily commute, I have my nose in a book. Unlike most people who are on a device, I read a paperback or hard cover book. It is more relaxing than staring at a screen again, which I do at work and then again at home at the end of the day. The 3 hours of commuting I have in the day is my true me time. I had this man ask me why do I read a physical book when I could just have a kindle and read the books then.
