There are so many scenarios running in my mind I couldn’t focus on things that need to be done. There’s this huge uncertainty over the COVID-19 matter in Metro Manila. (Of course, the country and the entire world, as well.) The government just extended the lockdown until the end of April, adding three more weeks on the waiting time if things will get back to normal. (I highly doubt it. But I am still hoping we’ll be allowed to end the quarantine by that time.)
I’m getting paranoid as well, scared at the slightest body temperature elevation, a throat itch here, and a cough there. I genuinely fear catching the virus for I am not confident my system can handle it. I am not afraid of death. But I just don’t want to die now, just when I am starting to put my life back on track.
I could be unwittingly hurting myself by dwelling on the negativity of it all. But I just don’t want to commit the grave mistake of being complacent in this trying times.
Stay safe, world.
