Memorial Day & A Whole New Way to "celebrate" due to COVID-19 Making even Daily Life Difficult

When we think of Memorial Day, and Celebrating the Great Freedoms We are given. Those on our Front Lines, keeping battle lines not crossed so we can feel safe in our neighbors, stores, towns open From the Markets to our Places of Worship & Schools whether Elementary all the way up to College Universities, we almost take for granted that freedom we have.

When a Sudden, Deadly FEARFUL Outbreaking of things such as an unexpected "Pandemic" of the kind COVID-19... and then see what people are DOING and NOT doing that could cause us much grief in a few weeks, when the virus hits again, after the holiday weekend.

As much as I need to go have my hair cut, I just can't see your stylist & you that close even with all precautions, not being able to spread it, if someone were to have it and may not have symptoms yet...

I agree people should be able to go to church and other places out BUT I feel we should have the FACTS & go by what the CDC & WHO .. or what our physicians tell us... not the NEWS in itself but what they tell us that THE EXPERTS are saying.

Plus maybe I am old fashioned but NO WAY if I had kids "summer camp age" would I want my kids going this year! NO way just with a few counselors can they keep  bunch f hyped up kids from touching, staying apart enough, using hand sanitizer, washing their hands enough, using their friends outfits or things such as that...

I see how difficult for adults even in large stores with large isles still have  hard time stay apart, and it is by accident, we can run into one another going around corner, or you have to know some items others may have just touched & put back on the shelf, and you or someone else pick it up.

All of us can only be so cautious, so safe, act so smartly.. and still even our own experts csome in contract it.

Day 9 - "Happy Hump Day" WEGO Health Blog Challenge - "What would be my "perfect" Day"?

First answer, going to the Casino... to stay overnight and get away from ALL of the illness, medications, cleaning, stress, loss of my Mom, and the grief from dealing with all that comes along with having to take care of everything after losing a parent or loved one. Being the "caretaker" before, while and after they are ill, and then pass away.

OF course that is a "1st" answer and it is extremely true, when it comes to wishing for the "perfect day" for myself right now. When "you" are chronically ill, chronically in pain, and most days you never know if you shall wake up feeling "good", "bad", horrible, or even on those rare occasions "WONDERFUL"; you hope for more of those wonderful days.

That does not mean ones that give me the time to go to the Casino for an overnight stay necessarily, but those or at least one or two, that give me the ability to get up, with pain and illness that is as less as possible. A day that the sun is shining, the weather is not to warm or not too cool, that day I can clean my home, go run errands, go to the market, maybe make a great meal, even in the slow cooker, play with my pups, have time to go outside, trim a few limbs from my trees, tend to my yard a bit, and even at the end of that day, not feel as if a "tractor trailer" had ran over me.

Yet, for many of us, we realize that "good" day, that leads us to be able to do those small or large things we want to do, shall probably lead to the next few days of being in pain, not feeling well, and having to "recover" from that one or two days we felt well enough to go out and feel "normal" for a bit of time.

For me, that is a perfect day. Those that come, where I get up, not as in much pain, not so fatigued, and I do feel like taking a shower, dressing up, putting on my makeup, fixing my hair, and going out to do errands, shop, wash my car, and not look "sick". It seems those days are rare. Oh, the shower, and running errands I do, but to really "feel" like dressing up, putting on makeup, getting my hair looking really nice, and then putting that "smile" on, and not looking worn out are the ones that are so far and few between.

At times, I feel that is why maybe I find myself slipping back or shying away from taking that overnight trip away. I may feel wonderful while I am out and about, wherever, Casino, shopping, yard work or whatever, because I realize that more times than not, I will "pay" for that 1 or 2 great days.

A day, two, three, a week, weeks, months.... most of us would give a great deal that we had, if not everything we had just to have a "normal' day, week, month, or year. Without being ill, without needing surgery, without needing many medications, without pain, and time we can spend with family, friends, on a job, in our home, just to "feel well" for a brief and wishfully a "lifetime" of not being chronically ill, or in chronic pain. 

Alas, since yesterday was an "election day" of a "first" ever for this nation or the world for that matter, "FREEDOM" is what I and ALL that are ill wished for a day, that is perfect 'FREEDOM FROM THE GRIEF OF CHRONICALLY BEING ILL AND IN PAIN".
