Well, that was creepy.  I turned our first Sooth card, and you know what it was?  The Ghostly Presence.

Going to be a little slow in getting a post out... With craziness ramping up and me working for Costco... Work has been a touch exhausting.

Everly - a most understandable delay!  I wish everyone the best of health!

I shall be trying to weave a story here in the next couple of days in response to Bhskara's questions, and I want to make certain I do it justice.

Tryvv, you too can enter the Festival of Ink in the main thread to start seeking some answers.

Hopefully it won't be long before we end up stumbling upon each other. Literally or figuratively, as it were.

Just wanting to check in on everyone to see if everyone is ok. The concerns over COVID-19 are pretty severe, so hopefully everyone is well and taking care of themselves, no matter where we are in the world!

Sorry for the radio silence on my part.

I work for the Health Services Agency, so between that and grad school things have been... hectic.

Looking forward to getting back into this over the weekend, as I'll have plenty of time.

How are things on your end?

Doing all right. My company has been declared part of our nation's Critical Infrastructure, so we aren't shutting down until the zombie hoards come.  whee.

I am nonessential staff status atm so a bit worried about unemployment, but that might change depending on if my role becomes open to telehealth (therapeutic, even though I am not a therapist... different certifications). But mostly just hoping the world doesn't go too haywire and more of us survive this than not.

Indeedy do. I'm not doing anything glamorous - I work in heavy industry - but since the metal we process goes to transportation and defense, we were deemed too important to shut down. The machines can't run themselves, and even in the event of a shutdown we'd have to have people here on fire watch. The company has given us a fairly generous sick-leave-with-pay policy if anyone gets ill from the virus, so we have that financial safety net for a while. It's just going to depend on how long this goes on.  :(

By contrast, I work in Costco's Canadian call center supporting their eCommerce offerings. We've been, for whatever reason, deemed essential staff as well but haven't been really given much in the way of offerings should we have to self isolate. Generally told absences won't be held against us at this time.

The whole cycle is basically one giant ball of anxiety as a result. >.<

Oh yeah, it's, "Am I short of breath or just so worried about everything that I'm having an allergy flare-up/anxiety/panic attack/bout of depression?"  "Is my cough a COVID-19 cough, or is it just because the factory is full of dust?"  "Am I feeling feverish or is it because spring is here and temperatures are at the 'throw a dart at the thermometer' stage and I am never wearing the correct number of layers?"

What do you do, Tryvv?

I'm in school working on an MSW, definitely pursuing licensure so I can do therapy (among other things).

Alright, I'll be looking at the threads in less than an hour and getting to work writing.

I am a Community Support Worker, but have been working in and around those affected by CPS agencies for 13 years give or take, so I am pretty well versed in a lot having to do around that area of expertise and knowledge, and work closely with therapists in my agency.

sadly, since my job is supposed to be support in helping people with mental illness overcome the functional living barriers *in the community*, this has made it hard for me. When no one wants you to come to their home or other similar location, it is near impossible to do your job, unless they relax some restrictions on usage of telehealth.
