Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do

Dear internet,

A lot of conversations these days are like, “I have this symptom…could it be covid-19”? I don’t know. Maybe it’s just the people I know.

I had a head ache this morning and 99 percent of me, the logical part of my brain, was like, clearly it is the humid air coming in to the DC area, I always get tremendous headaches with massive changes in humidity, time to drink a half a liter of water and take some headache medicine.

but the 1% of me, the scaredy-cat brain, was like, “Coronavirus??” I took some ibuprofen because it’s the only thing that works BUT it’s also the medicine that may cause coronavirus complications…oh well. My head does feel a lot better. sometimes it’s hard to know what to do.

Second-guessing yourself all day is exhausting. Maybe that’s why everyone is sleeping so much/not at all.
