Due to some bad scheduling, I had three medical appointments today, two of which were telehealth. It's pretty strange to do a teleconference with your doctor, but it works and it feels a lot safer than going in to the office.
One of my doctors told me that in her opinion it is going to be a long time before we see the other side of the coronavirus. This sounds about right to me based on what I've been reading. It's pretty scary and upsetting to think about being locked-down for many more months, but I trust my doctor's information a lot more than I trust what's coming out of DC (and even they are starting to admit that we're in it for the long haul.)
Another of my doctors reminded me to try to take things one day at a time and not look too far ahead. This seems like good advice, but it's very hard for me to take, it's just not in my nature. I'm doing my best, but I still think a lot about what things might look like in a few months, and what the lasting impact of all of this is going to be.
Meanwhile I've been stress-eating which is not good for me, so I need to work on that. I had been actively trying to lose weight before all of this happened - I'm cutting myself a bit of a break right now, but at some point I need to get back on track. Thankfully, I'm starting to be able to cook dinners, which makes me feel better and hopefully takes a little bit of the burden off of my wife who's had to take care of meals while I've been recuperating. (In normal life I do most of the cooking.)
