What has been the most challenging part of Covid-19?
How do you process your entire known world changing overnight? The psychological impact that has on me and everybody else. Adapting, these are new changes. I’m a big civil liberties kind of guy, we’re just not as free. I think that it’s reasonable, what’s happening it’s a reasonable response, but my concern is what’s going to happen after this - if we get an unscrupulous leader…Also people not dealing with fear well. There’s a lot of fear and most people aren’t ready to say this can kill us but we have to live and I think that’s the toughest thing - how do i soften that? I don’t wanna say ‘Hey listen do you really want to just live or die? Deal with it.’ I think people really aren’t ready for that news to break.
What has given you strength/ are there any unexpected positives from this time?
The fact that most of us are still able to wake up and do what we need to do and still want to help the next person. What do you do when you can’t begin to comprehend your world and how it’s begun to change, you help the next person get through, whatever it is that they need. You can’t cope, listen what I can do is reach out my hand and make sure that you don’t drown so let’s go.
Also, my sister had a stroke a few days ago. They tested her immediately and put her in a ‘clean ICU’ but the fact that we’re talking about clean versus dirty ICU’s…
Who do you wear a mask for?
Because I know that people are more afraid than I am. Because you just don’t know, I might be strong enough to fight it off but maybe they’re not.
We wear mask because we’re told to. We wear masks because we don’t know. We wear masks because my sister’s in ICU and if we’re irresponsible it will make it’s way into the hospital as it already has...
