I've just been looking back at earlier posts and marvelling at how quickly my situation and perception has changed. When this first started bubbling away (or at least when I first heard about it) I thought it was just the usual media hysteria over nothing at all and couldn't understand why this was such a big deal, as flu kills people every year. I just didn't get. And here we are, not even two weeks later, one hospital already turning people away, shops empty, goodness only knows how many people with either no income now or a greatly reduced one, schools shut indefinitely. It's pretty mind blowing. And I read somewhere that the WHO warned about this in January? So we could have, presumably, stopped visitors coming in, tested everyone else coming in and perhaps stopped people going out until it was all over? And avoided all of this? Maybe?
Some of the conspiracy theory stuff is pretty mad as well; I'm no fan of many aspects of society but the notion that the whole thing has been faked and people are claiming that because they don't know anyone who's sick? I don't know any burglars but people's houses get broken into? I've had to unfollow a couple of people so my brain didn't melt anymore Lol xx

The theory I've seen going round the internet today (two theories, I should say), one is that the flu vaccination caused this and the other is that it's a psychosomatic illness and people are only feeling ill because they keep reading that people are ill. I am aware that I'm getting a wee bit of panic every time I cough but it's fleeting and it's quite a long way from being laid up in intensive care. Both posted by the same person as well which I thought was odd as it couldn't be both? I would have thought one cancelled out the other?

I'm finding this period of being at home very revealing. I have wanted to go for a long walk a couple of times (which I haven't done; I know you can go out to exercise but son's anxious about it so we've stayed indoors) and there are some people that I see when we do our regular stuff in town who I am looking forward to seeing again but other than that, all we're not getting is endless stress and I'm not missing that at all! Is making me give a lot of thought to what I don't want to go back to doing once we all get back to 'normal'. Even my eating habits have changed; I've got no desire to comfort eat and I'm not constantly grabbing food because I'm in a rush or I didn't get a chance to eat earlier and now I'm really hungry. The endless cups of tea have reduced because I don't need to keep myself going all day. If I want to sit down for a bit I can. It's a revelation! Feels very odd that I'm experiencing this as a positive when so many people are currently going through the worst situation they have ever been through.
It’s strange I think that the longer this has gone on I am hearing more and more about peeps saying the Conspiracy Thinking off “That They Believe (China Made This As A Bio Weapon And It Went Wrong And Escaped ) And the Reverse Of That “China Made This as A Bio Chem Weapon To Infect Europe And The World” as Apparently they were Buying Stocks And Shares All Up Cheap And Wiping Out There Enemies And Made The World Leaders Ease Off The Pressure Of Sanction Threats To China “ Etc Etc Etc !!
Another Conspiracy going around is “The Gov Peeps And Super Reach And Royals And Upperclass Etc Etc That If They Should Get Infected .. They Have All Had A Sort Of Cure Injection (Similar To The Normal Flu Jab Type) That Should You Get The Corona Virus THEY ONLY GET IT MILD !! BECAUSE EVEN IF THEY OLD WITH UNDERLYING HEALTH ISSUES Etc Etc THEY WILL ONLY STILL GET MILD COVID 19..!! And they have Already Brought This For Themselves And Families Ahead Of The Covid 19 Outbreak Here In London Because They KNEW IT WAS COMING !! Before the Outbreak In UK !!
