I finished the first of three nights of work. The halls still quiet and now even with a stranger feel. “prepare for the surge”. It sounds so ominous. A strange quiet that we hear and a strange “vibe” we all feel.
When I hear it worded this way I think of a tsunami. Right now we are at the part where the water rolls back far far away from the shore, the rise of the water and constant flow has not happened.
Being in California, “we have not hit our surge yet”, we are being told. I can’t help but constantly watching everyone in New York daily, their surge is terrifying. ♥My heart is with them as well as everyone else. Louisana is projected to be the next hotspot. California is on that list.
As much as I try to be a positive person, being fed a consistent source of impending doom is even a bit much for me.
Will I get the virus at work? Will I bring it home to my family? Will I just get it? All the same, questions we all have.
We are having our ways of coping… I just pray that we survive the unseen beast. It could attack mildly or viciously. Remember, it affects ALL of US. Let us be kinder to each other and remember that this entire world is being affected in some way. There are stories everywhere, every day.
My utmost respect and love to all of those exposed every single day.
My patients need me to be the same helpful and caring person that I was and always will be.
Physical distancing and handwashing go a long way!
