I am a social animal - not a clubber (too old for that) but I like meeting and talking to people. I thought self/ social isolation would be, well, sort of different. I don't know why but I feel like I have a 'bit part' in a B movie that I can't get out of and the end is a million miles away with only two possible outcomes. The first outcome is the obvious 'end of civilisation' one (which happens a lot in films but is neither explained or resolved). The second outcome is the 'civilisation triumphs' one (I have never seen this in a film so I don't know how it pans out or what to do when it does).
My post opener sounds like I relate everything to films, but in a time when no-one knows anything for real about a virus which didn't seem to exist 3 months ago and has killed hundreds of thousands of people world wide since. Scientists have linked the DNA of this virus to bats (Am I the only one who has problems understanding how it moved from bats to humans and why it didn't wipe out bats beforehand?). This sounds like the plot line to a film already called Contagion.
To all the people I know, stay safe. To all the people I don't - drop me a line and then stay safe.
Hi there, without taking films into consideration, you know that civilization triumphs for real, why do we know this, well civilization has been hit by many things throughout history and look, we are here, all still talking to each other, supporting one another. That's how I look at it. Contagion was a good film though. Your last line made me laugh. This community is very supportive and helpful. Stay safe. ☺☺
Hi Bobbybobb, my d i l mentioned the movie contagion to me, I've never seen it, now I'm too scared to watch it🤢hope you're keeping as well as can be expected xx
I am fine Mammal how are you. Are you managing to keep a level head. Many, many people are so frightened at the moment. Its a matter of staying in and lessoning your Chance's of coming into contact with the virus. I always say, you need structure in your day to keep your mind occupied. There will be an end to it at some point. 😀😀😀
Good to keep in touch on here I have to admit I am a wreck but just about coping! I reckon a lot of us with fibro were already wrecks anyway 😳so nothing new for some of us! I'm keeping busy and catching up with some jobs around the house while no one's around and when pain permits 😊good to see you all the time sounding so upbeat. Take care and stay safe xx
I'm always here Malmal and on the Fibro site. Here you will get a great deal of support with what is happening at the moment because everyone is in the same situation. People are handling it in different ways but everyone helps each other get through the day. So don't feel alone in this and just come on here when you need some support or a chat or tell us what you've been up to.😀😀👍
