Given my autoimmune disease, I started sheltering in place two Saturdays ago. I’ve been so busy troubleshooting clients and am now beginning to reflect. Like grief, I’m navigating the five stages of quarantine.
Anxiety for weeks (denial), because I knew it was coming. A new norm (bargaining) as I shifted to WFH with a focus on clients, team, family, friends and groceries. I got this! Reality started setting in (anger) and a need to control – enter the cleaning/purge/organizational phase.
I’ve not hit my equivalent of (depression) and have (accepted) why we stay home – the only way out is through, right?
