It’s Gonna Be A Bumpy Ride

Working in the home and garden department of a large grocery store, I interact with probably 75-100 customers and coworkers each day. I cashier, handling more money than you might think people still use. I’ve accepted I will, most likely, be exposed to the coronavirus.

Echinacea, black elderberry syrup, and astralagus are herbal supplements I take daily to strengthen my immune system. Instead of waiting for symptoms before taking the sambuca elderberry syrup and Echinacea, I’m taking them regularly. I suppose this is an opportunity to check the efficacy of my regimen.

What I was most concerned about was that I might take the virus into my 82-year-old mom’s home without realizing it. Today, we agreed I won’t be visiting her for the time being, so I feel less stressed, knowing I won’t be increasing her risk.

The store was beyond crazy busy today. Shelves were cleared of toilet paper, milk, bread, etc. There was definitely a tension in the air. It will be interesting to see this unfold. I don’t think we can even imagine yet all the ripples, all the ramifications of COVID-19.
