Corona And Mental Health

 I had a dream tonight. Or, rather a nightmare. In my dream, I wanted some love from my husband and he told me, he told me that the government made a new rule saying that you first must fill in the form and submit it to the public health official, to prevent corona infections. 

I looked at the form and it had 3 pages, the 1st page demanding all your passport information. I said, it was ridiculous, surely it wasn't the government business and what about our right to privacy? But he still insisted on filling it in.

Then I woke up. My husband was just leaving for work and he laughed when I told him. He was against this whole nonsense from the very beginning. I know it all sounds far-fetched and yet, after all we've been through and considering apartheid passports we have now, who knows what the next step will be?

And while all this is being done supposedly to save the elderly, has any "health official" asked himself what is the effect of all this horror propaganda on the old folks' minds? I know many who have locked themselves in their homes from the very beginning.

 They are vaccinated and still afraid, because don't you know, you still can get it? Will it ever be over for them? Someone told me, they will only go out when corona disappears from the whole world. Which basically means never, because the virus is endemic now. 

And, of course, we all know that isolation at this age can lead to dementia rather quickly. how many of those who were balancing on the edge before were pushed over it? And will anyone take responsibility for what was done to these people?

 For any person who is in the same situation  and by any chance reading it, snap out of it now, while it's not too late. Stop feeling yourself a victim.  Don't shut yourself off from friends and family, you need their support. We are all going to die one day, a proverb says that a brave man dies once while a coward dies every day. 

Don't spend the rest of your life in fear, it's not worth it.


  1. My husband and I are recovering from covid. He was vaccinated, I wasn't. Our adult daughter who lives with us and took care of both of us through it still tests negative. This is a capricious virus, similar to any other influenza virus. I refuse to live my life in fear and isolation. I refuse to get "vaccinated". I'm glad I now have natural immunity. We are no longer contagious and I've begun to venture out to take care of business: grocery shopping, banking, post office. Life is to be lived! And enjoyed!

  2. Glad to hear you are feeling better!
    Sometimes I wonder...may be, it IS a flu virus? People forget that one can get very sick from flu and even die. And yet, there never used to be lockdowns for it...
