This coronavirus quarantine is starting to take it’s toll on me. Work has been incredibly stressing. I wish I wasn’t a manager that had to make tough decisions. I have long days at work, work late to catch up, and then order something from Uber Eats or GrubHub or Door Dash. I always order way too much and eat all of it. Sleep like crap. Get up, and do it all over again. This has to stop. Now, more than ever, it is clear that I am addicted to food and use food as a way to cope. My blood pressure is sky high right now. I mean, scary high. Something needs to change.

Well, the coronavirus has really caused a major freakout in our society. Stay at home orders by our governor. While I am sad that this virus has taken a toll on the vulnerable population and has caused an increased workload for our hospitals, I do not think this has been worth shutting down our economy. I think everyone has lost perspective about risk management. Life is about tradeoffs.
One positive I have found in this is that I am watching a lot less TV. No golf, baseball, basketball to watch. I have been catching up on a lot of long overdue chores. As well as reading. It has actually been quite peaceful.
I was listening to a talk radio show today where they were discussing the concern of people that are alone. I wonder why I don’t feel lonely. I suppose it is strange that I prefer to live the way that I do. I suppose that most folks would be lonely. But I am quite happy. At least I think I am.
