Anyone else feeling this way?

Saturday, April 25, 2020

This quarantine has me feeling guilty. I see all these posts how it’s always been about family and togetherness and doing with what we have. I’m thankful for all of that, no doubt. But my family is far and I can’t see them. And, I miss so many things right now. I miss being able to go to a florist for a fresh bouquet to sit in my home. I miss wandering thru a store. I miss grabbing drinks with friends. I miss going to the gym. I miss going to the movies for a date night. I miss the feeling of accomplishment. Right now everything feels like basic survival. I’m missing so much that home just can’t give me. Am I the only one?

    Yes all this is true. I have been semi retired for years. Hubby cannot go back to work until May 5th. He has been able to retire for about 4 years. I think this is something he is thinking about now as he is seeing some advantage of being home, enjoying what he is doing. I am not saying anything to hime as I personally want him to retire but do not want him to do it for me but because he will be comfortable

    You are not alone! I miss it too. But I am learning new skills and hobbies so I won’t think too much. Sending you big hugs!

    Definitely NOT the only one! Somewhere I saw advice to treat this time as a period of "grieving." You wouldn't feel guilty for missing something then, would you? Try to be gentle with yourself.... It's a really difficult time.
