Crazed Corona Chatter 3: Gym Guilt

It’s good to vent! That’s one of the main reasons why I write stuff, actually. Like most of the world, I’ve been driven completely crazy by the COVID-19 crisis. All other humans in the physical world are potential virus vectors to be avoided. It’s a freaking terrifying time as we watch death counts soar and hunker down helplessly as all our freedoms are taken away for the greater good of humanity.

And so, this “Crazed Corona Chatter” series of articles will be my way to just unload about it when I feel I need to. Sadly, I don’t think this depressing chaos will go away anytime soon.

Feel free to vent in the comments section too. I’m listening and here for ya! We got this.

I don’t want to jinx anything but things are kinda… safely getting back to normal over here?! Wow. *gasps*

It’s true! I am very grateful to be living in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. At the time of this article we have 1 active case of COVID-19 in our province (1,067 confirmed cases, 63 deaths, and 1,003 people recovered) and we’re also on a 11-day streak of no new cases despite increased testing.

I can offer nothing but praise for how well my local government has handled this crisis given the circumstances. Especially when I read about how…. um, not well other governments have handled this.

I have successfully dodged all information from the world’s frenzied media outlets for the past week. I just… can’t anymore. Being constantly assaulted with depressing news is absolutely destroying my mental health. I feel like I’ve lost all my life skillz progress and wore out all the new coping tools my therapist gave me after our last session in February. I REFUSE to devolve into that miserable, angry, heartbroken, self-destructive mess I was again, dammit!

Sometimes detaching from the sources of your pain is the only thing you can do to save yourself.

Blood Is Still Needed in the Coronapocalypse Era

STAY HOME is the good message being spread around the globe. Staying home saves lives, and you should most definitely do that, but if you’re eligible and able to donate blood, GO TO THE BLOOD DONOR CLINIC to save even more lives.

The need for blood doesn’t go away when pandemics strike. People canceling their blood donation appointments because they fear contracting the virus, or have contracted the virus, is another serious threat to healthcare systems across the globe right now. If you can, please, just do it!!

I did today, and yes, that is my arm in the article’s header image. Bandage of honor, baby! That tattoo has some special meanings and whatnot too, but that’s another story for another post, kids. Life is a big endless learning process, let me tell you.

Late to the Poképarty

Day 2 of the Blapril post spree has arrived, and with it another quickly thrown together article since I did not plan for this AT ALL! Oh well. Bumbling through stressful stuff is the theme of life in general these days. Just gotta roll with it with a forced smile, no matter how I much I just want to break down and cry, eh!

Today, I’m going to babble a bit about Pokémon GO, the mobile walking game that was insanely popular when it first came out back in 2016, fell off the radar briefly, and then surged-ish again in popularity recently. I remember my boss was obsessed with the game when it first came out, but I was thoroughly uninterested. I mean, as a kid I loved Pokémon Yellow/Blue/Red/Gold/Silver, but the series lost me after the first 251 pocket monsters. Seriously, there are odd household objects passing as Pokémon these days. Well, back in my day…. [rant removed].

Ugh! What the hell happened to the world?? Why is this little package of evil RNA replicating itself exponentially, spreading like wildfire, and wreaking havoc on human existence as we all knew it? It seems like years ago there was just a bunch of memes and half concern over some “flu virus in China”.
