We are going into lockdown for three weeks from Thursday until 16 April. I normally like to stay at home during school holidays – I don’t always go out, except to the shops and maybe a movie or two. I am a bookworm, and a slightly sociable introvert. But now that I am forced to stay at home for three weeks….. I am starting to get cabin fever – I want to be outside! And I want to go to see a movie! (Now I am stuck with whatever DVDs I have at home) And we have not even started the lockdown yet. It is going to be a long three weeks.

We’ve just been informed that within 48hrs the country is going into lockdown for 4wks, and I’m not gonna lie its scares me a bit. While I am essential services and will keep a steady income, my partner’s work is closing down for atleast the 4wk period and that’s a major loss of income, especially while we are still saving for a wedding that is already booked.

where I live (Michigan USA) we are still permitted to go outdoors for walks, jogs, and bike rides so long as we keep 6 feet of distance from others. My husband and I have been taking walks and bike rides around the neighborhood, which has greatly helped with our current mental state. The weather has still been pretty cold and crappy here however, so once it gets warmer I imagine these activities might be restricted if it leads to too large of crowds in outdoor recreational areas like lakes, parks, trails, etc.

We were meant to be leaving for a Caribbean cruise this weekend, which we are obviously no longer doing. I know it isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things but I have a suspicion my boyfriend was going to propose on our trip so I’m pretty bummed about that- not sure what will happen going forward, though he has said he wants to surprise me so I guess this helps with that? I work in the medical field so I am not quarantining at home, it’s business as usual here (actually busier than normal) so the vacation would have been a nice retreat.

I hate being at my job (service) right now, it’s making me so anxious. I’m actually putting in my notice soon and I can’t wait to get out of that dump!

I’m concerned about that too. I’m in CT and we’ve relied on a local section of rails to trails in State Park territory for walks and safe hikes. If it closes I’ll go stir crazy. I’m also concerned about entering tick/Lyme disease season when setting foot in a medical center is a huge risk and doctors will be tighter than ever with antibiotics. My kids have all contracted Lyme disease multiple times and luckily we’ve always caught it right away and they responded well to antibiotics. This year.it’s just an extra worry. There are ticks in our own yard from squirrels and deer going through, so we can’t always avoid them.

Well for one my husband’s salary has been docked 20% and his paid paternity leave has been revoked for the foreseeable future (I’m pregnant, although early). I feel pretty uneasy about his work situation and I’m praying this is as bad as it gets!
We had a family vacation planned for May, the first in 2+ years, and it obviously isn’t going to work out but the rental place is refusing to refund us our money.
I’m also just bummed for little things. I can’t bring my husband to my OB appointments to check on baby, we can’t see my family, Easter is likely cancelled, and I’m high risk so I’m terrified to even go out for essentials. Phew, that felt good! Thanks for starting 😉

Living in NYC (20,000+ cases) with a physician husband who is starting to provide coverage in the ICU with an ever-increasing number of positive cases scares me so much. I worry the whole time he’s at work.
But I’m not going to lie, I started crying for real for the first time when I found out the Olympics aren’t going to happen as planned. I hate how different everything is over night. I just want to go back.

- Wedding: October 2020 - City, State
I just hate all the unknows here. Like how long is this going to o on for? My wedding is this October amd im wondering if itll even happen anymore in regards to how long things will take to go back to normal. Or if i have to push my date back…AGAIN…
this was in the works since 2017. Im over it. The first venue didnt work out so we took time off to look into other places and now we found one. Now that we are half way planned, we might be pushing it back, or not having it at all.
If things do go back to normal, (whatever that means) and we do have the wedding, will we have enought time to iron out the details, or will something be slapped together last minute?
plus my car need emissions test for the new tags. not sure when that will happen. On the bright side i have my job, my health and from not eating out i am toning up and getting in the best shape of my life ive ever been!
taking it one day at a time. All any of us can do right now. Stay safe bees!

I need new glasses because the ones I currently have are old and scratched up! But the eye doctor isn’t open, and I’m running out of contacts… ahhh!
Starbucks is officially closed over here, and I’m addicted! Maybe it’s a good thing. It’s a bummer, though, because yesterday (which I assume was their last day) I ordered delivery, but the UberEats guy took my order and never delivered it, haha. And now today… closed!
I am now trying to figure out how to make my fave Starbucks drinks. Wish me luck!
Additionally, I have a ton of expensive, wedding-related items to retrieve from my planner, but it doesn’t look like I’ll be getting these items any time soon.

My son’s 13th bday is tomorrow. His bday party has been indefinitely postponed. He had gotten one of the leads in a local community theater production, and now it looks like it might be completely cancelled. I feel terrible for him.
i was in the hospital two weeks ago for serious stomach issues; this is the second time in 5 months this has happened. I feel like I was rushed out of the hospital without even being tested to see if I could handle food. I’m down 7 lbs in two weeks (almost 10% of my body weight) and am getting maybe 500-750 calories per day. I don’t feel like my providers care very much, in light of everything going on with coronavirus.

I miss iced coffee
my pay got cut in half
im an essential worker so I go to work daily. Although I regliously wash my hands there are so many little things: oh I put my gloves in my purse so now my entire purse is contaminated. Some of my co workers were diagnosed with covid
im sick of the constant fear that I will bring an illness home to my husband and torn between separating from him or just taking precautions
