Hi there, pandas. Seems in my new routines, I don't come here often. I guess dealing with most things internally. Lonely. Drinking and eating too much. But still running. Hope you're all doing okay!!

Hi pandas. Haven't been here much lately. Working from home and almost never seeing another human being is messing with me. Not very productive working, and anxiety and stress are high.

Pretty much same here. I can work from home, but being alone brings new kind of weird to the everyday life. When/if this'll be over, I will get large beer, I will sit in the place where there are people around and I will very slowly drink and listen

Anxiety is high. Yesterday wasn't a good day. Feeling sick (fighting a cold), which worries me. But today is better so far. Ran 20 miles alone Saturday. Otherwise, no contact with people...

If you're stuck inside with a family member, remember how lucky you are to not be alone. I'm grateful for my dog, at least. But the loneliness is defniitely getting to me.

We have our first local case of the virus. Wonder if the St. Pat's race this weekend will be canceled? Things feel very crazy right now. I hate the general state of panic people are in...
Jeff M
12 Mar 2020 · LEGEND

Hard to find context right now. Too much doom and gloom, not enough reality and balance.

corrado M
12 Mar 2020 ·

it's not helpful to give in to the panic, but still it's a serious thing. the contagion rate is fast and high, in italy (my country of origin) people were careless and now the whole country is shut down.

corrado M
12 Mar 2020 ·

so, i know it sucks, but until a cure is found we should avoid people especially when it's a lot in a closed space. the economical consequences of a country shutting down are more scary than the health concerns.
