Shelter in Place: Day 27

Hi everyone,

I’m still in shock and grieving for my uncle.

Grief makes me stupid. My brain is operating at about 30% right now. Staying focused on anything for longer than a few minutes is difficult. I keep switching the beginnings of words. It takes me much longer to think or speak.

I am trying to take care of myself the way I would take care of someone else. I told myself to take a shower, and I took a shower. I told myself to make tea and toast, and I made tea and toast. I got dressed and worked on a blogpost for PopSugar and called my brother.

Now I am writing this blogpost.

That’s about all there is for today.

I’m very sad. I would like to see my family. I would like to just be near them.

As it is, I will keep drinking tea and writing. I hope my brain will start functioning again soon.

Sending lots of love,

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your uncle, Laur. I imagine this is a particularly difficult time to grieve. I hope you are able to find some peace, and that Scout is giving you lots of snuggles.
