Obsession and Covid-19

An obsession is a way for damaged people to damage themselves more.     

Mark Barrowcliffe Obsession Sayings

At this moment in time I find myself drawn to what I know can make you fear everything, that thing is news.  They report things over, over, and over again.  The press corp at new conferences will ask the same question so many ways makes my head spin.

Yes, the whole world is feeling the deadly effects of this virus.  Multiple thousands of deaths, thousands upon thousands battling to stay alive with the help of respirators.  Others are sent home to self -isolate, quarantine.

All around me I know most of my neighbors have not left their home since this pandemic started, this includes me.  Some of my neighbors are now completely beside themselves with the worry how are they going to survive.  

In reading many of your blogs I can feel the worry, the concern coming from your words.  I can completely understand where you are coming from.  I have been in the place where I did not know how I was going to pay the rent, put food on my table.  For all of you I am thinking about you!

I sometimes would like to ask the anchor on the news desk if they really understand the person who was just laid off their job at one of many car producers.  Or have they ever known what it is like to truly worry about putting food on the table, or formula for the baby held in the mother’s arms.

So, dear reader please forgive me but lately my obsession has been the news!
