Hangin Tough!!

It's day #15...and I'm still going STRONG!!! There have been days where I wanna pull my hair out or anyone's hair who's around me at the time of the CRAVE, but I haven't been horrible! My husband is afraid I'm going to turn into Linda Blair (The Exorcist) and my head will spin around and I'll spit pea soup! HAHA! Sometimes I've felt that way, but to get over that craving, I get busy! It's amazing how much more time you have on your hands! I've been cleaning house and when I've exhausted all dust rags and polish, I do puzzles. They relax me and get me focused on something else besides a coffin nail! It's my hands...if I keep my hands busy and chew gum I get over the want. It's getting easier with every day that passes though. Even in the most stressful of STRESSFUL times, I work through it. I, and everyone else, am so worried about what is going on in the world with the crazy virus. I feel like I'm in a Sci-Fi movie or a Stephen King novel! My daughter works in a nursing home as a CNA, and she has been on the front line with the positive Covid-19 patients. She got really sick one night with a fever that went up and down very quickly all night long. She had to miss work because of it and went to get tested to see if she has the virus. Her test came back positive! And she, and her boyfriend and cat, live with me and her Daddy. So we have to be quarantined for 14 days and then have to be tested to see if we are all negative. After that, I don't know what will happen or what to do. I have MS so my Immune System is already compromised, but I feel GREAT! If I was going to break and have a cigarette, it would be now. But, I can't...I would let everyone down. But the one who would be the MOST let down would be ME. 

Thank you for letting me rant and tell you all what's going on in Winnie's World. It's been almost a week since I've posted on here, and it feels good to purge to people who would truly understand me. Once again...THANK YOU!
