And honestly, as someone who has been going outside to anti-socially take walks, get fresh and and such, I find the outside world to be exceedingly stressful nowadays.

I’ve grieved I the past in massive ways for family and person stuff, and honestly the waves of this are 100% the same.

Yes, many are suffering. And grieving. wnyc spoke w a hospital chaplain, and the things he is going through as he is middle man between dying patients and family. Which matches what happens in the Wendy Wasserstein bio I'm presently reading. Her older sister is so close to death, from cancer. The nurses tell the children to leave the hospital, having virtually lived there for a week. Mom died hours later. Daughter-"she needed us to leave. I believe she could not have her children in the room and let go." Ugh, I'm about to cry again. Sorry.

@djsheilab: Just walk, be careful and keep social distance. It’s worth it.

Now the subways and buses are another stores. The buses are always crammed in a way you can never socially distance yourself. And the subway is consistently like 3:00am on a weekday but even worse. Mostly hobos and you can socially distance but some are aggro and unstable and nobody else is there many times. And during rush hour the trains aren’t crazy packed ut still you can’t socially distance.

I think we should all enjoy doing old man and old lady things. Like just walking around the block once or twice.
