Craig - That's awesome that you have your buddy parrot, fascinating creatures!
You're so right when you say we have to keep 'plugging' away. That's what dealing with anxiety and health issues feels like doesn't it, that we have to take everyday step by step, sometimes hour by hour when it gets really bad.
As far as the virus goes, I wasn't to worried to start with but as the numbers are rising, I have found myself thinking about it more. It has seemed to trigger my OCD a bit - I have had a bit of a cleaning frenzy in order to feel a bit more in control. I try to tell myself that we live in a country that has an excellent health service and from what I hear, they say they are very prepared for the worst (I hear terrible things coming from New York so we should probably feel blessed we live here and not there). I have had a few nights of insomnia also - no fun is it!
Trivia is heaps of fun. Last trivia question I heard was ..which country has no mosquitos? ...Its Iceland. Maybe some people see it as a dumb fact but I think its a cool piece of info !
