Spoonified in the Time of Corona, Part One

Hello Spoonies,

I’m sure many of you have experienced things like this. 🙂
Non-spoonie cannot deal with lockdown

I hope everyone is managing to stay safe during this insane year. If I actually believed in the End Times, I would say we might be there…

For the last few months I’ve been:

1) Watching the news and freaking out about the news and then watching some more and freaking out some more. Also, I’ve been compulsively buying PPE. I have a great mask collection.

2) Doing physical therapy on Zoom. Taking a writing class on Zoom. I’m kind of burnt out on Zoom.

3) My 2020-induced PTSD has lessened enough for me to start thinking of ideas for cartoons again, so I will have a few more more coming up. Unfortunately I still haven’t restarted acupuncture for my arms, so I have to go even more slowly than usual.

4) I did a really fun podcast interview for Tick Boot Camp. I have no idea when it will be up, but I’ll let you know. They have a ton of great interviews with a lot of amazing people in the Lyme community. Check them out on Spotify, Apple, and Google Play. Their Instagram is @TickBootCamp.

Anyway, I hope everyone is doing as well as possible! Painless hugs to all…

💚💚 Vicki

Hi! I'm Vicki. My blog is called "Miss Diagnoses" because I have too many diagnoses and because my Lyme disease was misdiagnosed for many years. In addition to being a professional patient, I'm a compulsive reader and doodler. Sadly, my writing and drawing are limited by repetitive strain injury and neuropathy. I use assistive technology, but I can't post as often as I'd like. You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and I have two short cartoon videos on YouTube.

  1. 😂 Amen! That’s exactly what drove me mad. That cartoon is on point. Now I’m driven nuts by people who put themselves in danger cause they are low risk and not giving a thought or a damn about literally killing others in the process 0_0 I asked my psychologist, she says that no, people are freaking out about everything but no one but me talks about the fear of losing people because they’ve been negligent or decided to risk it. Sigh.

    1. Exactly! I’ve seen so many people complaining about masks. We could mitigate this situation so easily if people just stopped being selfish or even wore a mask out of concern for themselves. So many people still don’t take it seriously even with all the deaths and long-term chronic illness it seems to be causing.
