Hey everyone, how are you?
I am having to self isolate due to underlying health conditions because of the Coronavirus.
The isolation will last up to three months at the moment, I don’t know if this will change or not; only time will tell. Whilst I am isolating, I will be continuing to write and play video games and generally get on with my life. Today, I have a telephone doctor appointment, but apart from that I will be gaming and writing. I will be playing Yakuza 3 in the morning. I didn’t do this yesterday and it felt odd so I am going to go back to it today. Overall, my mental health has not been in a good place and I feel that having to isolate is only going to make matters worse. I have a good support system around me and I will get help if I need it.
Writing wise I am not sure what I am going to do. I have the many projects to work on and I will see what I feel like in the afternoon. I can choose from; the book chapter, transcribing and the short story. All of them need work done on them and some do have deadlines. So, at the time of writing I am leaning towards the book chapter as that deadline is slowly creeping up. I need to email the person I am writing it with and see what is happening. So, I will do that as well. The main thing is that I am going to be writing which is something that I have not done for a couple of days. I also want it get some drum practice in as well. To try and channel some energy that is manifesting as anxiety into it.
Although I am in isolation, I can take small low risk trips out. And I will be doing this to get things that are needed such as my medication. I hope that this small trip out will help with my mental health and that in turn will help with my creativity. I think that it will be these small trips out that will keep me sane.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
