How I'm Surviving Isolation During The Coronavirus
Well, it’s no secret by now that the majority of us are stuck in our home’s doing whatever we can to keep busy because of the current health situation the world is in. Whether you believe it or not, your lifestyle has changed. Yes, some people with epilepsy may be used to this a little, but for others like myself, it’s a big change. So, the question is, how am I enjoying this amazing time at home? Let’s find out!
Family Time Is The Most Important
This is a little obvious isn’t it? Yes, this entire situation is terrible, but I don’t think I’ve spent this much time with my entire family since before I went off to college. We have enjoyed family dinners with wonderful and sometimes crazy conversations, a few movie nights (Ford vs. Ferrari is amazing), and game nights just to name a few. We as a family have grown closer as a result of all this. Did I mention that my sister got a new puppy? So cute, but so much work! Finally, now more than ever has technology been a huge aspect in our lives. This past weekend, I had a virtual family game night with my entire dad’s side of the family. Hectic, crazy, but so much fun to communicate with everyone from different places in the country. Family is and will always be first.
Catching Those Throwback Sports Games
We know that all the major sports leagues are shut down, but I’m so grateful that they are replaying past championship, playoff, and major statement games now. Every night you can find my brother and me watching some game and by our reactions you would think it was the first time we’ve seen it. Sports has been an important part of my life, and being able to watch past games like this is fun even though some games can still get me stressed out! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely can’t wait to see all those stadiums filled up with fans again and being able to watch the games live. #BillsMafia
Still Spreading Epilepsy Awareness
As you probably can tell, I’m still very active on my social media accounts spreading awareness. With all major epilepsy events canceled, it’s up to people in our community to spread awareness. Being able to sit down and write a blog or put together a post is relaxing for me, and it allows me to use my creativity which I love! Odds are, I’m probably doing all this while watching a football or hockey game. I’m taking this down time to really focus on reaching out to others in the community for help and advice. It takes one person to make a difference in our community, and every day I’m seeing hundreds of you making that difference. If you have any blog or social media post suggestions, shoot me a message :)
This is a situation I never planned on living through, but now that I’m in it, I’m trying to make the most of what I can while following social distancing. Stay strong and healthy warriors!
