My heart hurts

I worked from home. It went well. I was productive and got to chat with coworkers. After work I’m feeling overwhelmed.

I sit on the balcony and enjoy what is left of the sunshine. Before the night falls and chill prevents me. I called my Mom. She gives voice to my fears. It makes me feel better. Less alone.

Children play across the street. It fills my heart. I cry. I don’t trust the systems we have to keep society safe. We are not doing enough and our healthcare system is going to be overwhelmed. This feels certain. I hope I’m wrong.

I took out the trash. It’s been a week since I walked away from the house.
