If you guys have dogs, take them for walks.  If you don't have a dog, just go for a walk in your neighborhood or in a nearby park if there is one.  You will likely run into other people walking their dogs and can say a quick hello while maintaining a safe distance.  Even that small bit of human interaction is nice.

Local walking trails have been as busy as I've seen them this time of year. Normally it's a very fair weather crowd. It takes almost pristine weather for some of these people to take a walk. March and April? Not so much. So I had the brilliant idea of walking in a hilly cemetery. And, surprisingly or not surprisingly, I wasn't the only one. Very serene, very calming, kind of put everything into perspective. Seeing how many little ones died in the late 1800s and early 1900s was a reminder that we've gotten really lucky in this pandemic in that regard.

Well my point was not to mock in anyway, all im saying is these are times for serious overreactions, no matter if it would be true or not.

 

Where do you draw the line though? It's an unknown virus. They're learning things every day about it. There's no proven treatment, no vaccine. Dr. Fauci, our infectious disease guru, admits to being mystified by the randomness of who gets the sickest and dies. "There's something we're missing," he said.

So, yeah, it sounds ridiculous, but my doctor put me in isolation. I had to order groceries through Instacart. A nice lady did my shopping for me. And you're damned right, I took a Clorox wipe to every item she bought. No offense to her or the many people who possibly touched those items. I've never disinfected a banana before. I'm on the better safe that sorry wagon. If you and others want to be carefree and take your chances, that's great. But the old saying goes that your rights end where mine begin.

Suicide missions are fine, just don't take anyone else with you.

Hang in there.
This our 14 th day. My wife is going out for groceries, she is craving shopping and seeing other people. We live in the country, so we have only seen a few people at a long distance.

I am an introverted only child, so I have been OK. My son (14) is used to being in school, on multiple teams and hanging with friends. He is having a hard time with the social aspect.

It’s my third week over here, but this is the longest it’s been without another person. It’s definitely wearing on me. I never thought I would wish for a roommate again.

I really appreciate you saying this. I’ve been walking the dog a whole lot lately. He’s gotten a little annoying about it, he’s beginning to expect it far too much.

We have two large dogs and they are getting way more exercise and attention than usual.

We are sleeping well at night though.

I feel like there's a certain kinship among dog owners -- that little smile and "how are you?" that we give each other when the dogs stop to sniff each other is one of life's underrated little pleasures.

Best wishes to you and your wife to get well soon! Mind what you have learned, save you what can...  and drink lots of fluids and all those practical things, too.

I don’t get you.  What do you think about all of this?  You think it’s just a normal flu variant?  You think the experts are lying/wrong?  I honestly don’t get your thought process.

Also, are you in the US?  Sweden?  Things are pretty bad in NYC area.  Do you know anyone being personally affected by this?

Right after I made my post this morning two of my closest friends at work were fired. On the first they were assured they would keep their employment through May. This is all taking its toll on me. I’m really starting to miss the army and the relationships. I’ve found myself reaching out to most of the contacts I have left over the last few weeks. I’ll be taking a few days off at the end of the month to go camping back up in the mountains with a long lost friend of mine. It’s very difficult for me miss the army and be completely alone at the same time so I’m really looking forward to being with someone who understands.
