Thoughts on Coping During Covid

All Day Breakfast Productions proudly presents the open and transparent thoughts of our PR rep, Lys Fulda and the challenges of dealing with living in a COVID ravaged society.

------------------------------

So I think this will be easier as these messages keep coming up in private conversations.  Remember all those messages you saw about the gaslighting of Amerikkka after Trump. We’d be constantly told it wasn’t that bad even though it really fucking was and we dodged a goddamn bullet. You are now dealing with a horror SO big you can’t even really wrap your head around it to get over it.  In the US a whole city would be gone if you put all the deaths in one place. If this were in a zombie movie there would be a big sign saying DO NOT ENTER.  But it’s not that segmented or compartmentalized and your covid pod is. That nice cozy bubble has a leak too. And so you try and move and eat better but you are still tired and let’s be real, that happens if you are lucky a few days a week at best, yet you don’t feel more energetic cause you are still dealing with TRAUMA. My mother might be dead but I look down and yup there’s her thighs:)..If you are living with others the tiniest things annoy you. If you live alone it’s just a question of what stage of The Shining you are in.  The before times are over. The after times sort of haven't really started and it’s a cracked Tabula Rasa. New ways haven’t formed yet so we don’t have a narrative to follow. Hunger Games? Judge Dredd? Who the fuck knows….and your boss and the media says...You aren’t making enough money...you aren’t saving enough for retirement, you aren’t thin enough, you aren’t in shape. You’d feel better if you were just in the office and around other people even though the thought of that fills you with existential dread and you think ….maybe. Shutting out all the bs is hard when your entire brain is starved. And then your brain says but others have it harder..i’m lucky...yes yes you are..so SHARE if you can. Share a laugh, a joke, a shoulder, flirt.  This is HARD give yourself a break. Give others a break.  This is a fucking War/Siege. We have all seen the war movies where the love interests don’t see each other for months or even years and then reconnect and then have to separate again.. It’s more like that than any cute ass lockdown movie although there have been ones that sort of get it.  You are doing the best you can with what you have. You may not be the person you once were at the beginning of this but as we all wanted better than normal maybe you are better than your previous self. You aren’t alone even though the walls around you say “Your my bae forever”.  It’s not just you. You can do this. I believe in you. I love you so love your goddamn badass self and be the hero you need to be even if your superpower is the ability to Inhale, Exhale. Repeat.
