I want my life back

I never thought I would see a time when I didn’t know who to trust, who to believe, when everything I said was disputed, when every bit of good news I tried to impart was met with disdain and “they’re lying to you.”

I am saddened by the state of the world. I am saddened by people who wish to believe only the worst. I am tired of comparisons to other countries, designed to make us despair, give up, give in.

We are so much stronger than a virus. We do not need to isolate ourselves, live in fear, refuse to believe there is good anywhere.

I want my life back. I haven’t felt this way since after 9/11 – when the world turned upside down and nothing was ever the same again. I just want normal. I don’t want to be told I can’t go to the store, I can’t get what I want – so what if I need it or not? This is America, we don’t lay down and give in. What the hell are we doing?

  2. Wow. It’s pretty clear that you are stressed and distressed and I don’t know what to say. I do have some advice for you.

    Get a dog.

    Dogs are inexpensive, easy to train, clean, quiet, require little time or attention, are always healthy and need little grooming. Basically they are low to no maintenance pets, a step above a gerbil.

    You don’t have to thank me now. Oh, I’ll show myself to the door. πŸ˜›

  3. Aw. I understand. I feel the same way.
    I keep fluctuating between hope and despair.
    I was wondering today about ordering Coops food way before we run out just to see if we can get it ahead and be ready.
    For the first time in my life, it feels like we are being totally controlled…mind, emotions, bodies, etc. And it scares me.
    I don’t know if it helps any…but, please know you are not alone. And that we care.
    Coops sends some Cooper-KISSES to you!
    And I send some ❀ and (((HUGS)))

    • thanks. I just checked Chewy and Maverick’s food is back in stock – that made me feel a bit better. Today we got to the park and got a short walk, that helped too. I’m not 100% from the bronchitis, so that wore me out! But we’ll get there and we’ll get through this. I agree – I feel like we suddenly went from “I can do whatever I want” to “I need permission to breathe.” I don’t like it and it cannot last

        Please know that even tho’ we’ve never met in person, I care about you and your furry-kids.
        You are in my thoughts for all good things.
        Hang in there! We’ll take one day at a time, together.

    Cooper is teaching me how to “sit” and “stay”…I’m getting better at it. πŸ˜‰
