What we need right now: A break and some prayer

The daily news is overwhelming right now: The coronavirus and its impact on our economy, stock market and daily life are devastating. Many of us have never lived through anything like this before and it can be overwhelming.

We know the virus originated in China and is causing mayhem throughout the world. Whether it was intentional or not – that is anyone’s guess. But many do believe that it is being politicized.

We have cities and states declaring emergencies even with zero confirmed virus cases. Schools are shutdown, governors are ordering shutdown of private businesses and are issuing executive orders to ban the sale of certain products.

And now we have counties in the S.F. Bay Area ordering a “shelter in place” for their citizens (unless you are homeless).

The daily inundation of this news along with the panic created by the media has caused much stress to Americans. I must admit, I am one of them.

I need a break.

My boyfriend is deployed outside of the country right now. They’ve been trying to secure flights home with no luck. I have no idea when he might actually be coming back to the states. It’s a “hurry up and wait” situation.

I know he is safe yet we cannot communicate by phone or text. Technology isn’t always functioning in many countries around the world.

It is not just my problem. Many military folk experience the same situation on a daily basis. It’s the normal stress of that life.

Yet it seems that with the pandemic we are facing today, many people are experiencing a new, “normal” stress. And that is not good for your health.

So I’m taking a break from posting here on FOTM. I need to reclaim my sanity and focus on my home (the grass is springing up and I need to break out the weed whacker and lawnmower soon), my kitties, and most importantly – my family and friends.

Now is a good time to call your family members and check in on your neighbors. Even though we should practice “social distancing” right now, that doesn’t mean you can’t make a call to someone local or in the states. Make sure they are OK and spend some time conversing with them instead of watching the news.

Also, it’s a good time to say a prayer. Always a good time for that.

I’ll be back to posting soon and will check in on comments. Keep the faith that this will end soon and we’ll survive much stronger.

The numbers just totally contradict any real medical crisis.

My state has gone insane.
2 supposed cases and everything shuts down.
Absolute BS

Don’t believe the hype…tune out for awhile from the Chicken Little Media. The reason they’re making such a big hullabaloo is because this is some bioweapon they released (probably on purpose). Darn Zionist freemasons! Cling to God in times of trouble, the Lord is our shield. We are in this earth but not of this earth. Don’t forget, laughter is the best medicine, avoid refined sugar which interferes with immunity, vitamin C is good to take, elderberry extract is a good anti viral, as is olive leaf extract (olive is referenced in the Bible as medicine and food). Stress will… Read more »

Thank you, DCG, and I hope your boyfriend will be able to return home soon. I once had a loser of a roommate (who had legal rights on the apartment at that time) who was a real loser. He never gave up trying to drag me down, to give up my escape from the car service we worked for at time time. One morning I woke up, and he started in again. Then I realized he was biding his time—-to drive me nuts, to drive me to despair. In the same vein, the Devil may THINK he owns this world,… Read more »

I’m so sorry about your boyfriend DCG. I’m with you on turning off the tube. It is nothign but a battering ram of fear., and I refuse to watch it. Being separated from anyone you love at a time like this is absolutely horrible. I am separated from my mother who I was going to bring home from the nursing home, but then my health has got even worse and I couldn’t. I prevailed to keep my mother there for a while longer, then all this happened and they have quarantined the nursing home so no one can visit their… Read more »

Thank you, DCG, for your years of tireless labor on FOTM. Even when you were out-of-town “on vacation,” you managed to pre-schedule posts to be published when you were away. We all owe so much to you. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ Please take the time you need to take care of yourself and your family. Stress is lethal, because it impairs our immune system — and our immune system must be strong and healthy to better withstand this demon Wuhan coronavirus. Our FOTM family of readers should do likewise to protect and strengthen our immune system by: (1) Avoid stress, and… Read more »

Everything is OK. You are going to be “alright.” Take your break and you will see that you will come back to us sooner than you think. Your loved one is on his way to you, you have to know that!

Hope you’re doing a bit better, DCG.
Not sure how much of a break you actually took… hard to break away.
Your military man is always in our prayers too.
