We all have stress in our lives but I have been having a bit more than usual over the last few months. My body is starting to crumble under the pressure.  My hair has started to fall out. My psoriasis has started to flare up on my elbow. I’m having trouble sleeping…

It isn’t the pandemic. It started way before that.  My friend’s mom passed around Thanksgiving. In an effort to help her not sit around and mope through the holidays I spent more time with her than usual putting myself behind on my own holiday stuff.  I just could not get caught up. I am use to having all my shopping done way before Thanksgiving and wrapping everything on Black Friday then I can sit back, relax and enjoy the holidays. As I struggled to pull it all together at the last minute the stress began. After the 1st of the year, everyone decides to take better care of themselves and work gets super busy, for about a month then it drops off.  With February my sister’s house caught on fire so I was helping her sort through everything so repairs could start.  A week after that school was canceled and the state went on lock down.

I am not alone in this time of stress.  People are freaking out and are worried about their future and the future of their families. My request in this time of global stress is to try to take a step back, take a deep breath and know that you have this. Think logically. Try to help those in need if you can. most off all… Take care of yourself.
