    What's the biggest hardship that you've faced as a result of the coronavirus?

    I was going to the gym 5-7 days per week, and I can't now, because it's closed. I'm taking long walk which is great for burning calories ( lots of hills in my neighborhood) but I can't duplicate upper-body exercises at home, and abs also. It's driving me nuts, plus missing the camaraderie at the gym.

    Worrying about how bad this thing is really going to get is a hardship on my brain.


    It ain't over yet.


     

    Besides the worry about the possibility of friends/family dying from this virus, I've had lots of my interests/past times cancelled....NHL hockey, local hockey, art classes, art gallery ceremony, exercise class, along with most stores that I shop.


    I go for a walk everyday and that certainly helps with the stress. I've never seen so many people out walking around which is good for all of us. I really don't like being confined but I will do my part.


    Social distancing needs to be taken very seriously as they know that that does help to slow the spread. I wish every one well. Stay calm. Stay apart. Stay healthy.

    Well they have closed our beaches because idiot youngsters do not think they need social distancing,,they do not think they can die from covid 19, But they do not care who they might give it to..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<..Coronavirus: Bondi Beach closed over 'unacceptable' crowds

    No need to convince me terry. I never believed that it was "a hoax" nor did our Prime Minister, thankfully.

    ....miss breakfast with old geezers

    ....shopping and keeping social distance 

    A tooth abscess. Painful and no quick trip to the all closed up dentist  office. Luckily, a phone call and text fixed me all up but dang, I should have requested pain killers as well....

    You can fix an abscess by phone/text? :)

    I had dental surgery a few weeks ago. I have stitches that have to be taken out. I was just informed that all dentists in NY were ordered closed, as they're NOT "essential businesses"; however, liquor stores ARE, and allowed to remain open. DUHHHHH?I can only guess there are people whose main caloric daily intake comes from alcohol. LOL! Hope the pain goes away.

    There is probably an emergency phone number for your dentist. Someone has to be handling serious cases.

    Fair Dinkum Clonge,,everyone knows enough alcohol deletes pain,,get going mate,,<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>..

    The shop where I worked to subsidise my pension has had to close. Not sure if it will open again, they were already struggling . I hope they will, but the main worry is that we can avoid catching the virus, we are staying in and hoping to keep away from it. Keep safe everyone. 

    Not so much hardship, more a concern. Having been diagnosed in May last year with an incurable and inoperable disease, together with my age of 77, my likelihood of surviving a coronavirus infection realistically is null. Animals have always given me the most pleasure in life and my concern is for my three pet cats, two of whom are in their prime. I don’t see a way out.

    Sorry that you have multiple worries west-bus. This is a very difficult time for those who are already struggling with other issues. :(

    Oh, man! If you weren’t so far away I would gladly take in your brood with pleasure. My Tom would only hate me a little. I’m going to Chicago in a few weeks, are you any closer to there? Do your cats swim?
