Hugs all around.
My assisted living has locked down -- a staff member was positive in the testing on Tuesday, so yesterday all the residents got tested. Even though I knew it was coming, given that we well into the second surge locally, I'm still irrationally dismayed.
I don't think it's irrational, Theo. Negative test ~ma all around.
Good thinking and writing to you, Shir.
ND, I can't only imagine how awful this has been for you as a business owner and employer.
I have a evaluation of needs appointment for therapy this morning on Zoom because my new doctor did not respond to my telling her I’m struggling with “find yourself a therapist” instead she had the therapist call me.
I’m sorry, Theo. It’s so hard.
I just finished the virtual assessment appointment, and I cried a lot. They want me to try to attend a group meeting on Tuesday mornings, and I should hear back about recommendations for a therapist and Psychiatrist within a week.
I'm glad you got the assessment, and I hope you get recommendations that work for you. By "group" they still mean virtual, right?

Ugh, I've been there. Sympathies.
Last night, I dreamed I had covid. Or, I dreamed that I lost my sense of taste and smell, so obviously I had it, and then my aunt the doctor (a real person) tested me, and I got a manila envelope with paperwork in it that told me in big letters that I had this other thing that wasn't covid even though the symptoms matched.
Sort of a weird anxiety dream with a happy ending.
Yes, all the services will be virtual for now. But I’ve always avoided group therapy in the past. I also made it known that I would prefer a therapist who is open to continuing therapy via zoom even after the pandemic is under control. It is just easier for me.
Yikes, Dana that dream sounds off.
My great-step-uncle with Covid was doing well, but I guess he had taken a turn for the worse today.
Got it. I've never done group therapy either.
I'm glad you had dream negative test results... or, negative Covid-19 anyway. Brains are weird. Sleeping brains are a whole other level of magnitude weird.
I ordered an artificial tree, since I'm not glomming on to family members for Christmas festivities this year. It is... smaller than I envisioned. I mean, I saw the height when I ordered it, but I should have gone bigger (I ordered 4.5'; I should've gotten at least 6'). I just didn't want to overwhelm the apartment. Or myself. Anyway, it's sitting on an Ikea Lack side table with a tree, uh, drape, I guess that goes to the ground, so it's cute. Definitely not overwhelming in any sense! Hey. live and learn. Now to find some ornaments. I have a few, but not enough for even just Christmas Tree Jr. over there.
