The Decision to Enter Society During Covid 19

Living in the world of Covid-19 is challenging for families around the world. Isolation for children and parents starts to wear on us all as the virus rages on.

Deciding when to enter society is not always an easy decision.  There are many factors that need to be considered such as:

1. Does someone in your immediate family have underlying health conditions?
2. Is the quarantine causing a lack of income?
3. How prevalent is the virus in the local community and surrounding areas?
4. Is the isolation having an excessively negative impact on the members of the household?

Quarantine and isolation can teach our children lessons that can only come through difficult times. There are important life lessons that can be learned through this pandemic. Make sure that you take time to involve your children in the conversations and research you do throughout this monumental time in history.

We are in the process of transitioning from quarantine to public life. My concerns are my breathing issues, COPD, and being exposed while I have other health issues that may influence the severity of Covid-19 exposure.  My mind says the kids need to get back to regular life and then my heart says I don't want to risk dying so they can attend a couple of campouts and playdays.

Fear can grip us but reality can guide us if we let it. I am supposed to travel out of state to see one of my children who is married.  I want to see them this fall but I also want to see them next year. Impatience and shortsightedness may influence not only my immediate plans but may also put a complete stop to my future plans if I should die.

I'd like to see a better treatment plan for the coronavirus before I enter back into society fully. The science and doctors do not have a proven and consistent treatment plan as of yet and I don't want to be a guinea pig for them.

So, in conclusion, I don't have the answer yet, we are taking it a day and event at a time. I need to focus on all of us staying healthy and doing all we can to build up our immune system so we can be prepared for all illnesses that enter our lives.
