Everyone is on edge, even those of us who aren't leaving the house. I understand that tempers are flaring, but this kind of behavior is outrageous.
I'm seeing way too much of this horrible behavior in the news. I'm seeing videos of people screaming at people... telling them to go home to China. It horrifies me. Most of the people targeted, are Asian Americans, just like my daughter-in-law. Many of the victims have never been to Asia. But even if they had just arrived from China, they should never be treated this way!
Chinese New Year
I'm constantly looking at the calendar. I try to wrap my head around the beginning of 2020. I remember on January 25, Don and I picked up carryouts to celebrate the Chinese New Year. That was before people were doing carryouts to be cautious.
I remember feeling a little guilty, that I even thought briefly, about Coronavirus worries, before picking up our food. That's ridiculous... then again, there's so much travel between Houston and China... That thought only lasted a second. The food was wonderful.
A month later, I picked up carryouts at our favorite Thai restaurant and was shocked to find empty tables at the popular restaurant. That was in late February, weeks before restaurant closures had begun.
Making Things Worse
I understand that scared people do things. It's okay for worried people to stay away from restaurants.
Once again, I turn off the TV and remind myself that this virus does not discriminate against people... but people do. Sadly there are a lot of people out there, who seem to be more evil than this virus!
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
