Before COVID-19 took over my county, then my state, I had interviewed for a position that no one else wanted, for some reason. It pays well, and I can do it at home – I was hired immediately. I’m disabled, so this is a big deal for me. I’m also fortunate that I have great health insurance that covers a large percentage, so if I get sick, I will be able to get the care I need. I have a partner who is helping me while I’m recovering from a horrible case of bronchitis (I tested negative for COVID). I love my job, I love my partner, and despite being stuck in the house, I have friends that I text and speak to over social media and video apps on my phone.

I am so grateful for all of these things. I miss my family, I’m worried for my older relatives, as well as those with pre-existing conditions (or in nursing homes). But these good things are distractions that help to quell my anxiety about what the world is going through. I hope with all my heart that everyone else is following self-isolation/quarantine rules, and will stay healthy. I’m so grateful that I have not lost anyone close to me. I hope that continues.
