To say the coronavirus pandemic is a hugely hard adjustment is an understatement. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice that for once having autism and social anxiety is allowing me to stay home when I can but because I do work in a retirement home, it’s almost impossible to be fully isolated.
Its definitely been crazy to sit and watch all that’s been happening and know hour by hour things could change fast. Thankfully, things have been getting straightened out at my job in most areas. But, and I heavily emphasize but, things can change fast where I work.
We had a partial lockdown on my workplace up until about Monday. Once that hit, we are now no longer allowing most visitors, whether family or outside vendors, we all have to have our temps taken before starting, and it’s guaranteed that this could go on through at least mid to late April.
This has definitely been one of the hardest, stressful weeks I’ve ever dealt with and I have done what I can to attempt to remain as calm as I can.
Most of the time it’s been easy but occasionally I’ve struggled with forgetfulness, people being at each other’s throats, and still trying to do what I can to help with my grandpa.
To be honest, I actually had an almost hour long meltdown this week because of the stress and those usually don’t last more than 10 minutes.
I’m hoping things get better and things are able to go back to normal but it kinda scares me how long this could last. And I don’t know how I feel about it.
