March Means March

And so it is March, here we are marching onwards through yet another strange year. 

(it's been a whole year, can you believe it's been a WhoLE YeAr?!!)  

We've been quarantining off and on for a whole year now. I'm hopeful that we'll get the Covid vaccine soon so that we can slowly rejoin the world and our fellow humans. It's gotten harder and harder for me personally to stay normal, and it's going to take some readjusting for me to get back out there and behave myself. When it gets crowded in a store now, I can sometimes start to have a low level panic attack, my fight-or-flight reaction kicks in. I'm anticipating that this is likely going to be a hard month to get through with the waiting and wondering and hoping.

Lemons and quilts will help. Well, citrus in general, and most definitely all the quilts.

I know what you mean about low level panic attacks. I have those as well. I try and go out early if I have to go out and stick mostly to places I know.It will be interesting.

Yes, going out at times when it's not busy is better if you can arrange it. I think we all have to remember that we are all going to be a little weirder than usual for a while until we get used to being out in the world again.

The Y opened, so I have been running on the Elliptical again, which I really like and my body really likes. The first few times I went I felt panicky, but now that I know more of what to expect and how many people will be there, it is a lot better. Still I am not rushing around to everywhere yet.

I'm so glad you've gotten to go back to the gym. That's awesome!
