Yesterday was reeeeeeaally rough. Today is better. How are y’all coping? Are you staying busy? How??

@phoenyxgreene

Videos, reading, gardening, wrestling, making music loops.

But mostly doing the "Kimmy Schmidt" thing and taking it ten seconds at a time. Anything is mostly okay for ten seconds.

@thraeryn I can’t seem to sit and focus on anything. I have managed to clean my house more times than I can count but I haven’t done any other productive thing really. Barely able to watch shows. Lots of music but that’s a constant. Gardening sounds nice. & yes, that’s a pretty good approach.

@phoenyxgreene

I know a lot of people have trouble closing away . . . their speculations about the vast stretches of time before & behind them. Every "if".

Never have I been happier to live in the clarity of Now, and let the rest be lost in the fog. But for folks not wired that way, I bet it takes concentration they might not currently have.

This five minutes is probably okay. Shit COULD happen; it's probably okay.

@thraeryn I’m working on it. I actually love being at home but now I’m like antsy and just worried about everyone but I only have control over so much 🤷🏾‍♀️

@phoenyxgreene

Yep. Can't save everyone, can't make it all okay.

Can chat with a buddy or two, see how they're holding up.

@thraeryn that part has been nice. Talked to some people I haven’t in a while because I had been isolating myself (lol)

@phoenyxgreene I'm glad you're doing better today!

For me I still have to work my usual 9 hours during the day, but for after and the weekends I am just trying to do things that I don't ever do anymore. I started playing video games again and got a basketball to shoot around (there's an old hoop on my garage, used to do that daily when I was younger). I also want to ride my bike around when it's not gross out. Doing different things than usual is definitely helping with distraction.

@sunflowers thank you. I have all these ideas for things to do, I just can’t seem to DO the things lol. I’m trying to at least do one thing a day that isn’t laying here panicking.

@phoenyxgreene am working from home so that's long stretches of time and brain space consumed

@tqft I’m trying to find a work from home job now 😭
