Tinderbox


Being cooped up in the house with all of this extra food is hard. I am not working, due to a mandatory state shut down, and home all day long. My husband has never had food or weight issues, so when he went food shopping (hoarding, to be honest) it is the most discusting amount of junk imaginable. I am so on edge, and the constant thoughts of I am bored, I want to eat X..I cant eat X or I will feel like dirt. The ED voice will not shut up.

I did go shopping for produce, but the shelf life is pretty short.

I quit smoking 8 months ago. Not being home made that much easier, so that is another battle I am fighting.

My program tells me I seized fighting anything and everyone, and it's becoming the opposite. All of my meetings are shuttered, but booze is flowing out of what is left open. I do not want to drink. I hope that urge does not creep up on me too. I am spending a lot of time on my basement treadmill...probably too much. Its March in the midwest, so it is cold.

Everything about this COVID 19 is stressful. And I'm stressed to be stressed when I see and hear what is happening in Italy. I have limited my amount of news and internet.

Can anyone relate?

Thanks for letting me share/vent/rant.

I can definitely relate.

I should be grateful I'm alive and well and that things are not too bad here right now - but I am at risk if I get sick, and the fear of getting this thing and not making it through is pretty real the last couple of days...

I'm bouncing around from positive to panic finding it hard to find my footing at the moment...but I hope that won't last long.

We humans are adaptable creatures

I have a duty to myself and others to be as ready as I can be for whatever is coming - and that means taking care of myself.

I can do that - I think you can do it too Libby

I thankfully live alone so no worries about someone else bringing in food I wont be able to resist.
I feel for you on that one. Im actually ready to pick up smoking, although the last time I spoked was decades ago. But with myself Im wanting to replace one vice with another, for me all of them are interchagable it seems. Im cooped up with no where to go like the rest of us. As of 2 weeks ago I started doing one project around my place adter another, only to have all these unfininhed projects
now starring me in the face 😟.
So yes, im with ya 100%.
Hope you find a positive outlet before you wear your treadmill rubber out..lol ( you did say treadmill..??)
