How I'm dealing with corona

I am pretty much self quarentine
I have a few close freinds who are handling this as I am. We visit each other but other than that we stay in our respective places don't go out to crowded gatherings . We tend to visit each other. I have several masks for doing art,to keep dust out of my nose when I use my flex shaft to carve stuff that I bought long time ago. I have 2 cloth masks and the insert thingys ( one says don't panic) I got those when I was sick several years ago because I didn't want to spread the flu.

I have 2 Lysol cans I got 2 months ago and laundry sanitizer, I bought that like 3 months ago it's useful now for washing the cloth masks I used before. And I got bleach tablets and flu meds and elderberry stuff and emergen- c I keep emergen- c around normally. About 10 tea bags with enchinaca and elderberry I bought like 7 months ago. I'm very thankful I didn't throw this stuff out thinking I would not need it because now, I do.

I am 55 but I have high blood pressure,under control and diabeties I know I am in a risky situation. I keep my bsl numbers low like in the 80's 90's most the time. I'm hoping for the best but prepared for the worst. But I'm glad I still have the stuff I need from months ago now.

Take care everyone and do what you think you need to do to be safe out there.
If it helps you cope or eases your mind to some degree, do it as long as it hurts no one else and damn the torpedos.

2. I'm doing much the same as you.

I have cystic fibrosis with 50% lung function, diabetes, and hypertension, so Iím at high risk like you. My SSDI isnít much but Iíve been able to stock up on some supplies.

3. I'm doing about the same, I also already had masks

and decided to start wearing them in public rather than just doing my farm chores. I have issues with dust getting into my lungs.

It is actually a relief not to feel obligated to go places.
