Staying Home

Flower Shadow
I've been noticing more social media and blog posts by friends and acquaintances I personally know that are subtly injecting doubts about the stay at home orders. And some friends are tiptoeing crossing the line inching over bucking the guidelines.

I get it. And I don't get it.

I just read a post from an ER doctor about a young woman doubled over, trouble breathing,  her family a wreck of worry, and now facing a positive COVID 19 diagnosis. She is an athlete,  no underlying conditions.

I would love to go to the ocean, hike and visit family.  I am not going to. I can wait.

It is frustrating at times, staying home. It feels like groundhog day. I am still staying home. If I do go out, mask on, 6 plus feet distance apart, it will be for essentials only.

I am not a perfect person.  I am not always kind. I can be selfish at times. I have broken rules.  I can be a pain in the ass. I can be self centered and narcissistic.  I have my faults.

But this is some real shit. Just because our numbers seem low in Sonoma County doesn't mean we are out of the woods.

One person,  sobbing, doubled over, walking into the ER with her parents sobbing behind her is one too many for me.
