The idea of losing a loved one or dying ourselves is petrifying, particularly when unexpected. Many of us avoid the conversation of mortality, as it confronts you with a harsh reality. No one lives forever, death is inevitable.
Coronavirus (CoVid) has reminded the world of their humanity. CoV is an extended group of viruses that has awakened our innate fear of death. These viruses cause mild flu-like symptoms to acute respiratory diseases which have the ability to severely attack and kill patients with pre-existing health conditions. Scary, with reason, the medical community doesn’t know enough to stop the epidemic.

My favorite New York City restaurants have temporarily closed, supermarket shelves can barely keep up with demand, a large part of the workforce is working at home and small businesses are suffering. Are you feeling like the things you worried about a couple months ago are not as detrimental today? Do you feel life as you know it has changed? Are you contemplating what life will look like in the near future? Is it all overwhemling making you feel out of control? The majority of people relate to your emotions. I suggest don’t fear, the panic is justified to a degree but you can’t stop living. What is worse than to exist without truly living?
We must take necessary precautions but not go into an all out hysteria. Read the facts about the virus. Staying informed is key to avoid a state of frenzy. . Listen to the suggestions of the CDC to prevent the spread of the virus. Protect yourself and surrounding community by being careful and mindful – follow safety guidelines.
