  1. Today I felt the first twinge of wishing I could do something a bit different.. after 3 weeks of doing the same thing. It passed fairly quickly
  2. That's excellent, I wish we could do that! This is the first time in my life I've ever wanted a car.. well, maybe when i was a teenager
  3. Any kind of soap will work, shampoo as well, conditioner, body wash, shower gel, they might be marketing these things in all different ways but as far as the virus is concerned, soap is soap. I would say, hoard on each trip, fine, but do not go to the supermarket unless you have less than 2 weeks supply of food left, because we should be going to the supermarket as little as possible, as few times as possible. as seldom as possible. People with cars should be able to go once a month, right? I don't know, I've never had a car. They say to keep 2 weeks worth of food at home because if you get sick, if you even get a cold you aren't supposed to go to the supermarket for 2 weeks, just in case. And to keep some of the stuff you don't mind eating when you are sick.. rice... lemonade... chicken soup.. whatever specific stuff you know you can manage to eat when you have no appetite
  4. I don't know a way of doing this without finding inner calm, I don't think you can fake inner calm and I don't know ho to get inner calm in an environment that's not calm. Jumping is a neurological thing, we are changed physically and neurologically by trauma. Dance, yoga, somatic movement.. anything where you move and pay attention to the movement, is supposed to help rewire us (limited but promising studies) but I don't think it works if you're not calm. That's why we dance to music we like, that's why yoga and somatic movement usually work so hard to relax you. If there is anything that can help you be calm I think it will work... Sitting quietly and listening to music, you don't have to focus on your breath, don't worry about that, you can focus on the music, but you just check the breath every now and then and "set the intention" of having it be deep breaths, with the out-breath longer than the in-breath, but if it's not it doesn't matter... but I don't know, it's hard living with someone with chronic anger, who knows if you trying to relax could also cause anger? There's a lot of uncertainty, it's natural to be on edge.
  5. It's not bothering me at all, but my back hurts from not walking. I'm going to try and go up and down the stairs more, and do some yoga videos on youtube. I'm glad we have stairs. I've always felt all apartments should have stairs, make them the same square foot but give them their own upstairs and downstairs. Builders cheaping out on building stairs... I guess it's not bothering me because I'm not that social and I have one person, boyfriend, who I get on with fine, and I have online friends like yourselves who I get on with well
  6. 1. Wander around the house like Catherine on the moors, disinfecting things at random 2. eat healthy things 3. read a book 4. Do a yoga with Adrienne I got everything on my list done! the trick was writing the list at the end of the day
  7. The Irish government made a handy thing with tips for going to the supermarket without risking infection https://globalhealth.ie/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Safe-Shopping-Guidelines-COVID-19-1.pdf It would be such a waste to go to all the trouble of staying home from work only to get the thing or give the thing in the supermarket! This US doctor made a video on what to do once you have your shopping home, but he retracted the bit about using soap on fruit and veg, because they'll absorb it through their skin, warm water is fine.. he has new ones now but I think this one is the best The thing to do is use these things to give you a sense of safety and control. The same as with the masks, we wear the masks in case we are infected and don't know, precautions. Anyone got other ideas?
  8. The problem with a militia is when most of the people who own guns are the very ones who are brainwashed into thinking that anything involving an increase in rules MUST be an excuse and must be a hoax of some kind hashtag not all gun owners
  9. Oh dear god, Redhead, that's so so awful. That's so so awful. We could see very clearly what was happening in Spain and Italy (don't look, no one here is suffering from toxic positivity like those people are).. what the hell were they doing... and by now many of them will have sick neighbours or family members and their toxic positivity will help them convince themselves it can't possibly have been them that spread it
  10. I don't know much about the Amish but it doesn't seem like a cult to me. The Jehovah's Witnesses are using this as a sign of the end of days and recruiting people, it's very manipulative. The watchtower I should say, the witnesses themselves are lovely people. Then of course that cult in S. Korea intentionally infected their people and if it wasn't for them the outbreak there would have been miniscule
  11. I have 10 times the anxiety that I need and they seem to have one tenth of the anxiety that they need, if there was only some way I could give it away to them.
  12. The virus might be tiny but the water droplets that come out when we breathe and carry it are not, it seems like a great measure to help stop us accidentally giving it to anyone. It seems to be working well in S. Korea, they only had to shut down schools and entertainment events because they did masks, testing, and contact tracing so well.
  13. wash hands before and after handling frozen food When you are chiselling your frozen chicken and get carried away:
  14. The filters from inside vacuum cleaners apparently work really well, people are making cloth masks with slits in them to fit in the vacuum cleaner bag filters, then you wash the cloth mask and replace the filter so you can reuse it If a local hospital doesn't want them a local retirement community will, I wish i had a sewing machine
  15. There are some curves that won't ever flatten, and I'm ok with them!
