Life With The Corona Cloud | Grieving

We seem to be entering a new phase of our Corona Cloud. It is a phase that will make our choices even more confusing than they are now.


As our state “opens up” little by little, we will have to determine how vulnerable we may be as we try to get back to our routines. We need to stay smart and cautious in our hope and zeal to return to what we know. We do not want to go backwards and be compelled to “shelter in place” again.


And things open up, let’s all remain respectful to the virus in order to take our baby steps forward.


Are You Grieving?

To those of you who have lost loved ones during the siege of the virus, my deepest condolences.


You will have a tougher time “returning” to your routines. Your Iives have been unalterably changed, it seems, in a flash. Your sense of loss may be tied up with your sense of shock.


In many situations. there was no kind of preparation nor time for conversation. Your parent, spouse, friend, child, or any myriad of relationship, was pulled out of your life in a way and time never expected.


Be patient with yourself as what you are experiencing is a form of emotional trauma.


It will take time to understand what has happened. You can’t make sense of it until a good amount of time passes. Those difficult feelings will be a struggle. And yes, it is a lonely time.
