Wow, the world sure went crazy, right?

How are you holding up, personally?

Eager to know how everybody is doing.

I'm working from home this week, so that will be an interesting experience.

Schools are closed, but my wife works at a hospital so expecting inevitable exposure.

I have been working from home for over a week. Yesterday the government announced that counter measures are in effect until June 1st, so it's probably gonna be awhile before things return to normal.

I am not overly worried about exposure, but I basically only go out for grocery shopping. My hope is that everybody takes this seriously, so that we can avoid an actual lockdown.

Wishing all of you out there good health and let's hope we can slow the spread of the virus.

I work in the medical device industry, and some of our products are used in treating Covid-19 cases, so working a lot more than usual right now

On the front lines of the great toilet paper shortage of 2020. I work at a grocery store. Haven't gotten sick, even with all the people going crazy and buying everything in sight.

On January 10 (my birthday) I was supposed to emcee our employee luncheon. But the night before I started feeling really sick, so I made plans for someone to take over if I couldn't make it.

And, in fact, I was sick. As sick as I've ever been. That was a Friday and I missed emcee'ing with a fever, chills, and constant coughing. I was sick all weekend, then missed Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at work because I still felt terrible. I ended up with a horrible cough for about three weeks.

I am convinced I had corona virus. I think it was already here in the population and we just didn't know it. I didn't go to a doctor, and I assume many other people didn't either. But my workplace had many people out with the same stuff.

So... I am social distancing. I am working from home. I am following the guidelines. But I truly believe I already had the virus and it isn't a real issue anymore.

I work for the organization that licenses lawyers in our state and I do communications, so I've been sending out messages from the courts to all of our attorneys over the past two weeks. It is almost surreal.

I'm a mechanic for a living, so I'm "essential". Yay me. But the silver lining is that I'm still working. I really feel for the folks that aren't. [Frown]

I haven't been able to see my parents in weeks because they're in their late 60s. That's been tough.

I work in food retail for grocers so this has been a good quarter for us. That makes me feel safe in my situation. But for many others even in food it's a really precarious time.

So far, doing well. Texas didn't have as many cases and opening up. Things didn't change much. I've worked from home for a decade or more, so nothing changed. Yay

Still alive. Things are escalating here in Brazil, though.

I've not logged-in since 2011 but I'm not dead, as far as I am aware.

Checking in from NZ where the virus has been largely eradicated. We are only getting cases at the border now (all travelers coming in to NZ have to quarantine in hotels for 2 weeks and be tested multiple times). There is no community transmission. Fingers crossed it stays that way. It will only take one instance of something slipping through the cracks for it to start spreading all over again.

Unbelievable times we are living in. Hard to realise that we are pretty much cut off from the rest of the world now - any overseas travel is well off the cards. Not sure what will happen with our borders if a vaccine does not become available!

Take care everyone.

I'm okay, I guess? I'm in Iceland now, so I'm personally doing okay, but I'm fairly on edge about all my family in California and Mexico.

Nice, Selene. Encouraging people to be stronger, to help them think that they're not alone in their endless fights! Raise up, people!
